a cup of barista stories
There are many reasons to be a barista. One of the most common is to support another passion or job that doesn’t quite pay the bills. Jordan is an excellent example of this.
This is my fellow barista and friend Jordan. He’s been at Avoca for a little over a year and its his first time working in a cafe. He started working here when he and his fiancee Courtney moved to Fort Worth. He loves the opportunity to be artistic at work through preparing delicious and beautiful drinks. His favorite part of the job is getting to meet and develop relationships with the many interesting people that come through Avoca.
Jordan’s passion is music though and working at a cafe allows him to DJ and perform in two different bands Ice Eater and Jacob Furr and the Only Road. He also facilitates a vinyl night at Avoca the first Monday of the month (Tuesday this month because of Labor Day) and gets to do all of what he loves in one evening!
