If you’ve visited The Exchange™ over the past year, you’ve probably seen Kayla behind the café counter carefully combining espresso shots and perfectly steamed milk to create your beautiful lattes, cappuccinos, and cortados. Since joining the barista team at The Exchange™, Kayla’s already impressive espresso acumen has become even more impressive! We can’t take all the credit — Kayla came to us with five years of premier coffee experience already under her belt — but her spectacular commitment to all things java has proven to us that she is the perfect person to assume the role of Food & Beverage Supervisor at The Exchange™.
Next time you see Kayla, please join us in congratulating her on the promotion!
