Meet Your Barista: Tyler @ 4th St.

In Blog, Meet Your Barista, News // on July 26th, 2016 // by // 3 Comments

 

MYB_Tyler_1

If you’ve been to one of our downtown stores, chances are you may have met Tyler, one of our stellar baristas!

With a view of Fourth Street Live, Tyler serves up drinks to his favorite regulars and plenty of out-of-town visitors. And when he’s not working at Heine Brothers’, he’s tutoring and mentoring at Kentucky Refugee Ministries.

Sarah nominated Tyler because he’s “always so fun to work with, and has such a great attitude. He’s perfect for a meet your barista feature!”

 

Which location do you work at?

I work downtown, primarily at our 4th Street location and occasionally at Main Street.

 

How long have you been working at HB?

I started in November 2015, so 8 months! It’s been a blast!

 

MYB_Tyler_4

Are you a native Louisvillian or Transplant?

I’m originally from Lexington but moved to Louisville last June. I’m already starting to feel like a native!

 

What kind of work do you do with Kentucky Refugee Ministries?

KRM works to help families make a fresh start when they arrive in the U.S. They offer resettlement, English classes, job training, and many other sources in order to make the transition from refugee to resident as smooth as possible. I work as a tutor and mentor, along with another volunteer, for one family with children of many different ages. We help with schoolwork and try to provide some basic English instruction, but I see our primary goal as being positive role models and providing support. It’s SO MUCH FUN, and I hope to continue doing work like this in the future.

 

What drew you to work for Kentucky Refugee Ministries? 

I took a class during my senior year at Centre College that explored social justice, poverty, homelessness, and other related topics. We had a project that involved visiting a nearby agency and preparing a report of their work, goals, and impact, to be presented to the class. My group visited the KRM office in Lexington and I was intrigued by the organization and the work it does. After moving to Louisville, I was looking for opportunities related to teaching, tutoring, and language instruction–and I remembered KRM. It’s been an incredible experience!

 

MYB_Tyler_5

What part of working with the organization do you enjoy most?

I plan to become a teacher, so the work I do is directly aligned with that and has helped me in planning the start of my education career. The most significant part of my work, though, is seeing the impact I’m able to make in the lives of these kids. They’re always SO excited when we visit and have so much enthusiasm for learning and for living. It would be a challenge not to be inspired by that!

 

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve gotten, or that’s stuck with you the most?

One of the first phrases that comes to mind is something I learned as a camp counselor a few summers ago: Give of Yourself Always. Our director always worked that in with everything he told us and had made a small sign with the letters “GOYA” on it, which he left by the fireplace in the dining hall. I think that concept can be applied to any situation. Being personally invested in everything you do can boost your attitude, increase the quality of your work, and brighten the lives of others. It can be a simple thing to strive for every day, or an overarching theme to your life. For me, it’s a sort of mantra that helps me remain focused on what is important.

 

Your most fearless moment?

Since graduating from Centre last May, I’ve faced a number of challenges–moving out on my own for the first time, learning the lay of the land in a new city, and just figuring out how to be an adult. It all happened very abruptly and I have definitely pushed myself, but I think that has made me a better and more capable person today.

 

Top location on your travel bucket list?

I’ve heard Europe is wonderful, so that’s one (very broad) location, but I’d like to explore more of Central and South America. I spent a semester in Mexico and visited Cuba, so I’d like to keep pushing further south!

MYB_Tyler_2

Favorite HB drink & why?

My go-to is just a cup of whatever we have brewing, usually black (Peru Jaén might be my favorite right now) but my favorite specialty drink is the Mayan Mocha. I’m not much of a fan of really sweet drinks, and the Mayan Mocha goes in a completely different direction. Also, I like the fact that the drink uses powders instead of syrups. I think it’s the most fun to make (and drink)!

Meet Your Barista: Sarah @ Main St.

Next time you’re downtown, stop by and say hello to Sarah at our Main Street store!

Kacie, her manager can’t say enough good things, “She’s such a hard working shift leader, but also a positive and sweet person to have on our team and to become friends with! We love Sarah!”

For this month’s Meet Your Barista post, we’re spotlighting her and her work at Louisville Grows. Plus we got an insider tip from Sarah: Stop by the Louisville Grows community gardens to pick yourself some FREE fruit (Portland Orchard for blackberries, People’s Garden for blueberries)!

sarahmorgan_2

Which store is your “home” store?
Main Street

How long have you been with Heine Brothers’?
Since January, so going on 7 months!

Are you a native Louisvillian or a transplant?
Transplant— I moved to Louisville in January of 2012. Four and a half years go by really fast!

You just got a new position at Louisville Grows – can you tell us about your position and the mission and how it got started?
I am an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer with Louisville Grows doing Volunteer Coordination! I’m so thrilled to be involved with such an amazing organization. I graduated with my bachelors in Social Work from the University of Louisville in May, and have always been interested in non-profits dedicated to sustainability work, so when I saw that Louisville Grows was looking for VISTAs, I jumped at the chance. The mission of Louisville Grows is to create a more just and sustainable Louisville, through education and empowerment programs in Urban Agriculture and Urban Forestry. As a non-profit, we make all this happen through our dedicated volunteer base, so getting to interact with new volunteers and figure out which of our programs they would enjoy the most is really great.

What started your involvement in such an awesome organization?
During my internship while in the Kent School of Social Work, I became involved in lots of projects that focused on healthcare disparities, food insecurity, quality of life improvements, and health education. Louisville Grows tackles all of that, from empowering food insecure communities on growing their own healthy food options in private or community gardens, to planting trees in neighborhoods where there is little to no tree canopy.

What’s your favorite program you’ve gotten to work on through Louisville Grows?
We do so many different things! I have to give two answers— one for our urban forestry initiatives, and one for our urban agriculture programs.

In our urban forestry, we have a Citizen Forestry program, where we work with members in our communities and thoroughly train them on tree planting and community engagement. There are different levels of training, with more classes and opportunities getting added quarterly. In Spring and Fall we have huge tree planting initiatives, and right now, we are doing maintenance and inspections to ensure that our trees are growing properly. In our inspections, we work with homeowners and answer any questions they have about their trees, and make sure that their tree is healthy!

In urban agriculture, my favorite program is at our Hope Community Farm, which is located off Taylor Boulevard. We partnered with Gate of Hope Ministries International, and work with Rwandan and Congolese farmers, to develop a 7 acre lot that has been vacant for several years. We have turned this lot into a beautiful farm, with community gardens for 35 refugee families, and have worked with eight growers to develop and run their own CSA. It’s a beautiful project, and the growers that we work with are some of the most inspirational people that I have ever met, and have been growing their own food their whole lives. Not only does developing a farm provide healthy food access to these families, but it also provides a form of therapy for the growers and their families. Inspirational doesn’t even begin to describe it!

sarahmorgan_5

One thing you’ve learned since starting work at Louisville Grows that you want to pass on to others?
Going into this, I have had no garden experience. I live in an apartment, and with the high death rate of plants that I’ve had, I was very intimidated to start. When I started, I realized how that was unnecessary, and that growing your own food is not a scary concept. Never be afraid to try something new, and don’t be afraid to fail!!!

What’s the best way for other’s to get involved?
Check out our website at LouisvilleGrows.org, like us on all of our social media (we’re very active!) and if you’re interested in volunteering, email me at sarah@louisvillegrows.org!
We also offer numerous trainings, from Citizen Forestry to our Urban Growers Series, which are on our calendar on our website!
We can’t achieve our mission without our volunteer team, and welcome anyone who is interested in creating a more just and sustainable Louisville, regardless of skill levels.

What do you like to do in your free time?
My co-worker Maddie and I just started working on a raised bed in one our community gardens, and I am always researching different ways to grow in an apartment complex with next to no sun— any suggestions are welcome!
As a Kentucky transplant, I try to spend my weekends visiting all the beautiful sights that the state has to offer! Once again, I’m always looking for suggestions for places.

Lastly, what your favorite HB drink & why?
I am having such a hard time answering this question. My go-to is a three shot Americano— it’s reliable and gets the job done! If I’m looking for something special, I get a soy Beekeeper. I love our honey, and bees are my favorite insect!

Meet Your Barista: Mary @ HB-Frankfort Ave.

In Blog, Meet Your Barista, News, Spotlight On:, Uncategorized // on May 28th, 2016 // by // No comment

Mary-Ralph4
This month, we want to introduce you to Mary from our Frankfort Avenue store! When Mary isn’t working at Heine Brothers’, she’s teaching at YouthBuild Louisville and helping organize Girls Rock Louisville, an amazing musical summer camp experience that empowers girls and gender non-conforming youth!

 

Which store is your “home” store?
I work at the Crescent Hill store on Frankfort.

 

How long have you been with Heine Brothers’?
I have been working at Heine Bros for a year and a half.

 

Are you a native Louisvillian or a transplant?
Transplant! I was born and raised in the greatest city in the world, Chicago. My partner is originally from Louisville, so we moved here a year and a half ago to be closer to her family. It was an adjustment, but I feel like I’ve found my place here.

 

Mary-Ralph2

 

You’re an organizer of an awesome Louisville organization called Girls Rock Louisville – could you share a little bit about the mission and how it got started?
Our mission is to empower girls and gender­ non-conforming youth from all backgrounds by exploring music creation in a supportive, inclusive environment. Over the course of a week, campers learn an instrument, form a band, write a song, and perform in concert,­­ all while learning about self-confidence, self-­expression, social justice, and community building.

 

There’s an international community of folks putting together these camps – the first was in Portland 15 years ago. A group of us from GRL went to the Girls Rock Camp Alliance conference outside Philadelphia last month. It’s really a lot of female and LGBTQ musicians trying to create all the things we wish had been around when we were younger: a supportive community pooling their knowledge and experiences to help young people believe that they can be anything they want. Girls Rock Louisville grew out of the Outskirts Music Festival, which had a weekend of “Rockshops.” This summer is the first time it has been a full weeklong camp. It’s really exciting! Our applications opened on May 1 at girlsrocklouisville.org, and they started coming in right away. We are going to have paper applications at outreach events in the next month to make sure we’re reaching everyone we can.

What started your involvement in such an awesome organization?
I met one of the founders, Carrie Neumayer, through a friend shortly after moving here. She’s one of my best friends now and through GRL, I’ve met so many amazing people. I expected to get a full-time teaching job when I moved here, but I still don’t have one. I teach at YouthBuild Louisville and then Heine Bros allows me the flexibility to dedicate as much time as I need to organizing and outreach.

 

What’s the best part about getting to work with the campers at Girls Rock Louisville?
Helping girls learn to creatively express themselves and connect with an audience is so amazing and rewarding. I know what music meant to me when I was a teenager. A lot of angst was channeled through my guitar.

 

One thing you’ve learned working at Girls Rock Louisville that you want to pass on to others?
I played in a band called the Scotland Yard Gospel Choir for a number of years, and we always seemed on the precipice of “making it,” what ever that means. We recorded a few albums that were put out by independent labels, toured the country and played music festivals, and were critically acclaimed, but never got to the point where we could make a living at it. For a long time, I felt like a failure; GRL put that in perspective for me and I really fell back in love with music. Success isn’t about how many records you sell or who your manager is. If I can be an example for somebody to pick up an instrument and take a chance and be exactly who they are onstage, then I’ve accomplished all I dreamed of.

 

Mary-Ralph3

 

You must be a pretty big music fan, working with all these talented campers – any bands/artists you recommend?
I have to mention Chance the Rapper. I think he’s this generation’s Curtis Mayfield with the way he tackles complex subjects like gun violence in Chicago. I love St. Vincent, Sleater-Kinney, Cat Power, and Perfume Genius. One of our alumni from the Rockshops, Hoe Garden, are a local band to keep an eye on.

 

One thing you’d tell your teenager self if you could?
It gets better. There’s a whole world out there to discover. But do your homework first.

 

Lastly, what your favorite HB drink & why?
I’m pretty boring in this respect. I’m happy with a small soy latte. I love sweet things, just not in my coffee.

 

Girls-Rock-Louisville_wider2

 

Girls Rock Louisville is still taking applications until June 18th! Fill out the application HERE. Find out more about the organization and how you can support their mission on their website: girlsrocklouisville.org/.

Meet your Barista Lunchtime Poll: Music of the Moment

In Blog, Meet Your Barista // on May 17th, 2016 // by // No comment

IMG_3263

Like the music you hear in your local Heine Brothers’ store? Our baristas are also our DJs!

When we asked them what else they’re listening to in their free time, we got some great recommendations:

 

“Top Gun soundtrack. Pretty much on repeat in the truck. No shame.
Long live Kenny Loggins.” -Erin @ Blankenbaker

 

“Everyone who works at my store knows I’m obsessed with Modest Mouse (like, they roll their eyes when they see that Pandora is on modest mouse radio again). Right now I’m loving their EP called “Everywhere and His Nasty Parlor Tricks.” Good stuff.” -Ashley @ Veteran’s

 

“The Greg Spero Quartet. Everything about it. But mostly the Hadrien Feraud bass lines I’ve been trying to steal from 4:20-8:35.” -André @ Douglass Loop

 

“Bahamas and that Sturgill Simpson Nirvana cover [“In Bloom”].” -Taye @ Schnitzelburg

 

“Milky Chance is my jam!” -Erica @ Vint

 

“The Districts and their “Telephone” EP. Also, they’re opening for Modest Mouse at the Iroquois Amphitheater in April!” -Hans @Gardiner

 

“The album “Multilove” by Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Recommended to me by our guy Patrick. This album is awesome! And they have a set at Forecastle this year so it’s something Louisville folks can really get pumped about.” -Alison @ Northfield

 

Fleet Foxes are apparently coming out of hiatus, so I have been too excited about that. Nothing official yet, but they’ve been talking about it to the press…!!!!!!” -Patrick @ Northfield

Meet Your Barista: Patrick @ HB-Northfield

In Blog, Meet Your Barista // on April 5th, 2016 // by // One comment

Meetyourbarista_1

This morning we’d like you to Meet your Barista, Patrick! Patrick works at our Northfield store, and is also the inventor of our Campfire Tea Latte.

Patrick was nominated by a fellow barista for the Meet Your Barista spotlight because he, “is incredibly passionate about coffee and tea… Additionally, he’s a super talented musician, and we all appreciate his upbeat singing while he works at the bar – it keeps the mood and the good vibes going for everyone.”

 

meetyourbarista_3

 

Get to know Patrick, and have him fix you a Campfire Tea Latte, or his favorite, the Heine Palmer next time you’re at the Northfield store:

 

How long have you been working at HB?

I will have worked at Heine Bros. for two years in May!

 

Native or Transplant?

I grew up in a small town outside of Lexington. Moved to Louisville 5 years ago, and basically never want to leave.

 

Favorite HB drink & why?

This is probably going to sound ridiculous, but I am pretty obsessed with our Heine Palmers. I’ve always had an affinity for lemonade, and once I got into enjoying tea, I tried the magic combination…never looked back. Our South India was the perfect choice for the drink, as well. A perfect balance.

 

Favorite author or book?

I spend most of my time just reading news articles these days, but if I had to pick an author, I would have to say George Orwell. I’m super creeped out by the implications of his writing’s subject-matter, but I love readings that challenge my comfort level.

 

Your most fearless moment/time you pushed yourself the farthest (so far)?

In November, I presented a concert where I had a mix of small and large ensembles play a total of 8 pieces/songs I wrote. It took a lot of planning, stress, hard work, and luck to pull it off in the time-frame I was working with. I conducted, played piano and marimba, and sang throughout. It was fun.

 

meetyourbarista_2

 

If someone was playing you in a movie about your life, who would it be?

Ashton Kutcher, I guess? I’ve had about a billion strangers and their mothers come up and say that I look like him.

 

Favorite place to go in Louisville or Southern Indiana?

The Highlands in general is my favorite place to be in Louisville. Great music/record shops, coffee, food, night life, and Cherokee Park! I could walk around The Highlands for hours.

 

What was your first car?

1994 Nissan Quest Minivan. Made in ’93, the same year I was born. What a fantastic vehicle.

 

Besides the Campfire Tea Latte, are there any other drink combos you’ve been experimenting with?

I’m probably never going to top the Campfire Tea Latte, so I haven’t really been experimenting with anything new. Northfield has some really creative people though, and I’ve been hearing some solid ideas floating around!

In Blog, Meet Your Barista // on April 1st, 2016 // by // No comment

The Lunchtime Poll Returns!

In honor of April Fool’s Day, our baristas tell us about that time they got pranked:

 

“We opened to this beautiful mess in the Barista restroom this morning!” -Kacie

12931245_995937922361_6128734031927287474_n

“Once, a coworker that was closing set all the timers to go off in 10 minute increments between 5:30 and 6 am, and hid them under stacks of cups so I couldn’t find them when I opened the next morning.” -Olivia

“I did the typical, water bucket over the door prank on my twin sister when I was little. I knew her morning routine, so I got up early and placed the bucket of water on top of the bathroom door. an hour later I heard a splash and my sister’s voice calling for mom. What made it funnier, is that my mom thought it was funny. My sister was soaking wet when I saw her!” -Josh

“My mom would have to work anyway, so we’d usually end up at Berea Childrens’ Center on snow days. There was a GIANT and AWESOME hill out back, so we’d do a whole lot of sledding with our friends, plus snacks, crafts and general fun times were had.” – Maggie, HB Roastery

“Sledding on dog hill in Cherokee Park.” – Catherine, HB-Northfield

“Oh, how bout that one time my friend pulled a donut in a parking lot before we went sledding one day. He managed to hit one of two cars parked in the lot. This particular car also happened to belong to my dad. True story.” – Patrick, HB-Northfield
