Jacob has eaten the worlds hottest pepper, can solve the Rubik’s cube in under a minute, and is “kinda a huge candle guy.” It’s not the exact resume we look for when hiring baristas, but it definitely doesn’t hurt.

The first drink Yancey tried at Burgie’s remains her favorite (matcha tonic). Never feeling the need to stay tied to the usual, Yancey is also a hissing cockroach owner!

Jessica says that from finding out about Burgie’s even halfway across the country, she could tell that it was a community-centric place she wanted to work. A new local hailing from Florida, she’s never lived through a winter, so she’s taking all hints and tips!
