January's #monthlymuffin: NICK!!!

on January 30, 2013 - 12:14pm

January is wrapping up.  That means it’s time for another Monthly Muffin!  We collected questions from customers in a jar by the register all last week so that we could learn more about this month’s muffin: Nick.  Nick is one of our most beloved Front of the House Counterstaff, known for his thoughtful ideas, relaxed manner, and well frankly… his size. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We got a chance to sit with him the other day and chat about skateboards, cats, and music.

The first one’s pretty easy.  Your people want to know: is Nick your real name?

Oh God, I was afraid they’d ask

It’s the middle of December.  That means it’s time for another Monthly Muffin!  We collected questions from customers in a jar by the register all last week so that we could learn more about this month’s muffin: Chloe.  Chloe is our Back of the House Manager known for her delicious recipe ideas, flirty blink, and knee socks that just won’t quit.

Okay, great.  What’s your Chinese Zodiac?

Rat.  Do you think that fits you?

I don’t

Zen and the Art of Espresso

Every so often, a sly wind blows in from the south and we here at Ula are once again visited by our gurus of coffee: Gerra and Ana.  Yes, it is always unexpected and yet… expected, when our wonderful trainers from New Harvest descend the massive hilltop of coffee beans that they inhabit in Pawtucket, RI, to take the time to bring their teachings to our café.  As we have mentioned before, New Harvest offers all kinds of support to our baristas in the neverending quest to serve the perfect cup of coffee. 

We decided to document some of our experiences over the past couple of weeks to give you

November's #monthlymuffin: CODY!!!

November kicks off our new blog feature: The Monthly Muffin.  Every month we will highlight a different staff member for an interview made up of a combination of questions from us and more importantly from you! 

That's right!  We collected questions in a jar by the register all last week to ask the first #monthlymuffin, our beloved Cody.  Cody is one of our Front of the House Supervisors here at Ula best known for his dance moves, exemplary whistling skills, and one-liners.  We sat down with him a couple days ago to chat for a bit and learn more about the man behind the counter.

Pumpkin Possibilities - BLFF 2012

on October 16, 2012 - 8:25pm

Thank you to every one who came to the demo and stopped by our table at the Boston Local Food Festival last Sunday! We were so happy to share all of our macarons with you.  We had so much fun talking to new and familiar faces. A couple of us even got away from the tent to talk to some of the other great businesses at the festival. 

A real highlight for me was giving a demo I affectionately named “Pumpkin Possibilities”. Fall is our power season at the café because we love taking advantage of the warm cozy feeling we get when baking with all of the available local fall produce.
