It's been a long time since we've posted a blog, hasn't it?
Well, today we're bringing the blog back to you guys with a brand new writer! We are so thankful to our lovely Briana Webley for taking the time to do thorough research and create fun and informative blog posts, but the time has come to pass the torch to a new blogger. I wanted to take the time in this post to tell you guys a little bit about myself and what I plan to do with this blog.
I think most of our regular customers might know me already, but my name is Olivia and I've been at Saratoga Coffee Traders (on and off) for about 4 years. I started working at the coffee shop while I was still in high school and it is a job that I cherish and enjoy very much. Working at the coffee shop has given me the ability to interact with people easily and comfortably, as well as the opportunity to make the world a better place with delicious caffeinated beverages. I love my job, my coworkers, and our customers!
Most of you might know already, but I am a person that is always seeking new adventures and I have a strong desire to see as much of the world as I can! Last year I took off from college and traveled Europe for 3 months alone (hence the silly clog picture above.) It was a life changing experience for me, and it is something I suggest that everyone try if they have the means to do so.
This brings me to my intentions for this blog: In February of this year I will be embarking on another journey to Seoul, South Korea. I am majoring in Korean language in school and will be studying abroad at a South Korean University. Obviously, this means I will not be at the coffee shop for some time.
Through this blog, I want to show our customers– as well as anyone who may come across our blog– Korean café culture, caffeine consumption habits, unique coffee drinks I come across during my journey, and any other cultural tidbits our readers might like. I want to show our readers South Korea through their unique cafés and coffee shops. In the meantime, I am thinking of profiling each of our employees in a sort of "Meet the Baristas"type-deal.
Please let me know what you think! If you have any suggestions on any coffee-related blog topics, leave me a comment, a message on our facebook, or on my facebook!
I really need your help to make this blog a success, and your feedback is so important to me!
Thank you so much for reading,
