Have you met Daniel, the store lead at our Austin cafe? We're proud to have him on our team. Learn more about Daniel below!


What are a few interesting things about you?

I grew up in El Salvador until I was 5, I have 4 older sisters and I am the youngest of 5 and the only male.

What brought you to Cartel?

I would visit Cartel frequently before the pandemic and became friends with the previous manager, then in the middle of the pandemic I got asked if I wanted to help out and pick up shifts. I have been with Cartel since June of 2020.

What is your favorite thing about your job?

I enjoy being able to help educate people in the craft that is coffee. From learning about seed to cup and the whole process in between. I also enjoy being able to do something I am passionate about each day.

What are your aspirations for the future?

My aspiration for the future is to eventually take all the knowledge I have gained from the different places I have worked at and open up my own coffee shop.

What is your favorite beverage?

Either a cappuccino or gibraltar. 

Come hang out in our Austin cafe, and say "hi" next time you see Daniel!
