Barista Highlight: Vi Adams-Ulmer

In Meet Your Barista, Uncategorized // on June 21st, 2021 // by // No comment

Meet Vi Adams-Ulmer, this month’s barista spotlight! Vi was nominated by their manager, Jenny, who said, “Vi is, without a doubt, one of the best folks I know. Where a helping hand is needed, that’s where you’ll find them. Armed and ready with a John Mulaney quote and the quickest wit you’ve ever heard, Vi is the kind of person you can count on to lift your spirits. They’re an incredible coworker, a consistent friend, and the kind of person who lets you play Rush at 6:00 in the morning without fear of judgment 😉 It truly just feels good to be around Vi!” Read below to get to know your Longest Ave barista, Vi! 

How long have you been at Heine Brothers’?: I’ve been working here for about a year and a half, give or take a few months.

 

Where are you from?: I’ve moved around a lot in my life, but I spent most of my childhood/teen years in south Georgia. I moved to Frankfort in 2014, then made my way to Louisville right before I started working at HB.

 

What is your favorite Heine Brothers’ drink?: I’m a seasonal kind of person, I guess. When it’s hot out, I like to make an iced Mango India. When it’s cold, the dirty Chai or cinnamon Mocha is the way to go.

 

What is your favorite Heine Brothers’ food/snack?: Probably our lemon poppyseed muffins. Not warmed up, though. You gotta have the lemon crunchies on the outside.

 

What is your favorite Heine Brothers’ blend?: I’ve never tasted anything quite like Natural Ethiopia. It’s my favorite morning coffee.

 

What is your favorite thing about working at Heine Brothers’?: My co-workers are some of the best people I’ve met in my life. Aside from that, our customers are kind and friendly, and our store is very pretty. And I get to work with coffee and tea all day, which is very nice.

Why did you want to work for Heine Brothers’?: I’ve always wanted to be a barista, coffee has always been a big part of my life. I figured if I could share the same joy coffee has brought me over the years, I would be heading in the right direction.

 

What other hobbies do you have?: I play a lot of video games, but some of my favorites are Animal Crossing, League of Legends, and the Borderlands series. I also enjoy reading, watching horror movies, swimming, and going on the occasional (and rare) hike.

 

Fun fact?: A Rainbow mantis shrimp have hammer-like appendages that they use to smash their prey at the speed of 50mph. The force of the hit causes a small explosion that generates heat close to temperature of the sun. Fun fact!

 

What is your favorite music to listen to at work?: I listen to a lot of Pearl Jam, Interpol, The National, and The Police.

 

What do you think makes Heine Brothers’ unique in comparison to other coffee shops?: Maybe I’m just a weirdo, but I haven’t been to a lot of other coffee shops…like, maybe three different ones in my life (well, two because Sbucks doesn’t count in my opinion.) All I can say is that we have some darn good coffee, tasty pastries, and cool people!

 

Make sure to stop by Longest Avenue and say hi to Vi!
