meet the owners

raylin and tristan became friends in late 2017 when they met at starbucks. little did they know where they would end up.

tristan has extensive experience in hospitality, including managing many high volume restaurants and cafes over the years.

in his spare time, he likes to spend time with his family (both human and cat), hit the bowling lanes, watch documentaries with raylin on the couch, and sing in the shower...also outside of the shower, too. his favorite animal is a wolf and his favorite film is "tombstone". 

tristan recommends trying our cold brew shaker with oat milk and vanilla.

raylin recieved her associates degree in english from arizona state university, and she has been working in coffee since her very first job out of high school. in her spare time, she likes to watch the latest seasons of rupaul's drag race, make fun cocktails for her friends, and read horror novels. her favorite animal is a fox, and her favorite series is "better call saul". duh. 

raylin recommends an iced, almond milk latte with rose and honey.
