Week beginning November 14th - Land of the giants

So I am 6 feet 4 inches, or about 190 cm, and for the first two years or so, that pretty much set me apart from every other person who worked here. Some of you may also know Kaffeine has a silent business partner, Hayden, and he is 6 feet 6. We were the only tall people at Kaffeine.

Now the tables have turned. Last week we employed an Australian boy, Nick, and he is, wait for it, 6 feet 8 inches tall. We also have James and Tim who are both around 6 feet and Niall is around 6 feet tall too, but he has moved up to One Tree Coffee at Lend Lease for most of the week, but will be back for the occasional guest shift every now and then.

Finally we have Ashlea, she must be about six feet tall as well, but she tells us doesn't know how tall she is and she is also working on the espresso machine as well as on service.

A while ago I wrote how girls have been an amazing influence in the life of Kaffeine, (Catherine, Rhea, Emma, Krysty, Jess, Julia to name a few) but now, when you come in, expect to look up, because the tall people are taking over.
