About The Authors
Hi! We’re Joel & Amber, a husband-wife team who love God, working from a coffee shop, and our sweet, energetic toddler. Our coffee journey started with a $100 espresso machine and evolved into our personal in-home coffee shop with a gorgeous grinder straight from Italy. We wanted to find a fun way to teach our toddler some of the basic coffee vocabulary to use with his toy espresso machine. We couldn’t find a coffee primer for kids, so Baby Barista was created to fill that gap!
We’re wedding photographers and content creators by day, and world travelers whenever the opportunity arises. Faith, family, and serving those around us are the heartbeat of what we do. We hope this coffee primer will bring a fun spark of joy to your family memories!
Born in the wild prairies of South Dakota and transplanted to the South in middle school, I love a to-do list and colorful pens. Baking scones, reading the perfect blend of business books and Nancy Drew, and everything Jane Austen is my jam. I’m the official birthday cake maker and event coordinator in many of my circles. Running our business while sitting in one of my favorite coffee shops is pretty much a dream come true, especially when balanced with plenty of mommy time with our young son. Baby Barista is a labor of love that I’m thrilled to share with other coffee nerd parents!
Everyone asks me how tall I am. So before you do, I’m 6’9″ and no, I didn’t play basketball! Amber and I love running businesses together, and I hope that never stops! While Amber learned the art of coffee first, I was the one that kept pursuing it and persuaded her to upgrade our equipment and our coffee game. As we continue to work at it, we love looking for opportunities like Baby Barista, and we’re thrilled to share this with the world! While we love all things coffee, business, real estate, and photography, our first love is to serve God, and honor Him with all that we do!
