With the first sip of sweetened coffee made by and shared with my grandfather at the age of ten, to the first espresso shots I was taught to pour at the age of eighteen, I knew I had found my passion. Preparing a delicious carefully prepared drink to a smiling customer made me happy.
After managing two espresso companies, I was recruited by the owner of Gourmet Latte© to manage her very first espresso drive thru right down the street from my home. The focus was on quality gourmet drinks using fresh Italian Roasted beans, and only the highest quality products. With high expectations in customer service and getting to know all of the daily customers and families in the community, G.L. grew to ten locations and now more. I managed four different locations in a twelve year time period as well as trained new baristas and managers for other locations. As I poured my heart and soul into this company and loved every minute of it, I knew that it was time to try owning my own business and building something for my own family.
In 2006 after much research, planning, and saving every extra dollar that I could, I bought my first custom made mobile espresso bar and Gourmet Espresso Catering became a reality! I worked four part time jobs while building my business one client at a time. As business grew one thing never changed, clients consistently told me how much we stood out providing over the top service that exceeded our clients expectations, our extensive menu stood out, and how that drinks are so delicious they wanted more. Now years later, Gourmet Espresso Catering has become a highly preferred and referred company serving the Seattle/Bellevue WA areas and beyond. My husband and I now work as a team, our team of baristas amaze us, we love putting smiles on our clients faces and we are excited for what the future holds! Thank you for your confidence in allowing us to add a higher level of service to your event…
