Humans of Cartel

This is Tea. You can catch them at our farmer's market cart at the Upwtown Market on Saturdays. During the rest of the week, they actually run their very own historical fashion collective and thrift store called Crisp U.S. Thrift. They're definitely one of the most interesting people we've ever met, and we are beyond lucky to have them on our team.


What are a few interesting things about you?

I am running my own historical fashion collective and thrift store. :)


What brought you to Cartel?

The atmosphere, drive to succeed, and we have the best specialty coffee in the state!


What's your perspective on Cartel, your community, and the industry as a whole?

I am super blessed to be a part of a team who respects community and inclusivity. I love that I don’t have to change who I am to belong, and make others feel welcome as well.


What is your favorite thing about your job?

Connections with new people, playing tunes on the farmers market cart that get everyone moving.


What are your aspirations for the future?

Work my butt off to learn as much as I can with the time I have on Earth. My business Take-off! Get my masters in bioarchaeology. And a fruitful and long lasting marriage to my partner. :)


What is your favorite beverage?

Oat milk cappuccino sweetened with agave.


Come through the Uptown Market on Saturdays to meet Tea and grab your weekly whole bean coffee!
