Celebrating October Anniversaries!

Helen_Barnes_BioAlthough Helen is only celebrating her first anniversary with Stockton Graham & Co., she is a veteran of the coffee industry with eight years of experience as a barista and store manager. Our resident mixologist, her passion is creating unique beverages that thrill and delight the customer. Helen’s philosophy is that every cup of coffee should be an experience and she is always happy to do drink preparation demonstrations with our customers, or recommend a favorite recipe. Part of the fun of being in the coffee industry for Helen is finding someone’s favorite drink, whether that be a specific single origin coffee or a complex frappe with all the dressings. Her mission is to share her experience and enthusiasm for coffee and specialty beverages with our customers while equipping them with the tools to really “wow” their own customers.

At Stockton Graham & Co., we have many different personalities who are dedicated to helping our customers understand the coffees and the business of coffee.  Helen has the same desire to help our customers and other team members not only learn about coffees and specialty drinks, but also adds the extra touch to enable our customers and their baristas to give their store and drinks the extra distinctive personalized edge. Her effervescent, glittery personality and smile comes through to help us all shine brighter and better (and have more fun!!).  We are fortunate to have Helen and her energy to add more sparkle to our cast of coffee personalities at Stockton Graham & Co.” – Jeff Vojta, President and Co-Founder, Stockton Graham & Co. 

“Helen’s passion for our customers and their success is infectious and she is my go-to-girl for the latest trends in the coffee industry. Her creativity and imagination seems to know no bounds and that really shows in the drink combinations she comes up with. I always look forward to sampling her latest concoction. If you get the chance to try her cinnamon coffee, I suggest you take it.” – Alisa Dixon, Marketing Associate at Stockton Graham & Co.
