Elise Kraus Barista Years in the industry: 5 Groundswell, St. Paul I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions … because I don’t follow through and I don’t want to disappoint myself. But (for the new year) I do celebrate my grandma’s birthday with my whole family on the first of the year.
Maddie O’Brien Barista Years in the industry: 3 Nordstrom Ebar, Robbinsdale I’m not super big on New Year’s resolutions. But I want to use less plastic and get better at dental health—you know, like flossing.
Andrew Schulz Bartender Years in the industry: 14 Lat 14, Golden Valley I can’t think of one I’ve kept. I had a gym membership that lasted to May, and (one year) I was only going to drink wine and I made it to my birthday. I just moved to an apartment, so maybe this year —learn a silent way to play the trombone?
Anna Axel Server Years in the industry: 6 Masu Sushi & Robata, Minneapolis It’s been (a resolution) for awhile, but I’m going to buy a house. January 2 is the closing. I don’t really have one for next year … maybe furnish the house? But that will take longer.
Layla Bulera Barista Years in the industry: 3 Caribou Coffee in NE Mpls Lunds & Byerly’s I never really thought about it because I’m only 18, but for this year, it’s to improve on my make-up and hair skills. I started school at Aveda in September and I have lots of room to grow.
