Week beginning June 25th - Amy's leaving

One of the absolute best things about living in London is the amount of people you can meet and friends you make from all parts of the world.

One of the worst things, is saying goodbye to them.

This week we say farewell to one of the true legends of Kaffeine, our manager Amy. A person who has set such a very high standards in professionalism, commitment, passion and dedication to both the business and herself, and who has helped grow the business into one of the busiest and most well respected cafes in the UK.

Amy started as a barista in September 2010 and has been the manager of Kaffeine since July 2011. It is a role that she was so excited about taking on, and one she has so well accomplished.

I normally find words easy to write in this section, but in this case I am finding it hard to put across how much I appreciate her time here.

With my hand on my heart, all I can say, is thank you.

She finishes at 4 pm on this Wednesday the 27th. If you are free at all tomorrow and can pop in to say goodbye, you will be more than welcome.

We wish Amy all the very best and am confident that she will have continued success in her career and life in Australia.

We hope she enjoys this weeks menu at Kaffeine, but that it won't be her last.

  1. good luck, amy! you will do famously well at whatever you choose. and you will certainly be missed.

    peter - amy's last day was the same day as my leaving drinks just down the road. several people saw your blackboard farewell and thought it a funny coincidence, including me.
