Hi! I’m Emily! Relative newbie to Rin’s and the wonderful world of speciality coffee!
How lucky am I to have got myself a job in the most beautiful part of the country, fuelled by the best coffee any workplace has to offer!
I’ve always had links to The Lakes, but grew up abroad in the Middle East. My Arabic is extremely limited considering I lived there for 9 years, but that’s one thing I’m hoping to re-learn.
In 2016 I moved to Leeds for university where I studied Theatre and Performance. I love performing in pantos (oh no you don’t, oh yes I do), I am a bit of a Shakespeare nerd, and will ALWAYS gladly take up the offer of singing songs from the musicals with you.
I loved the creative side of my degree and all jobs I’ve done since. In my spare time you can find me writing about life in the lakes, trying my hand at watercolour painting, scrounging the charity shops to put outfits together or wielding a camera in a poor duck’s/sheep’s/boyfriend’s face!
Now I’m back at home in Kendal and chuffed to be surrounded by the fells. As well as learning Arabic and getting better with my watercolours, this year I’m hoping to get back into horse riding and cycling, try out paddle-boarding, hopefully get to do some am-dram and learn a lot about coffee!
I’m so excited to be part of the team at Rinaldo’s and looking forward to meeting all you fab customers. Here’s some things I’m always up for a chat about:
Cats, veggie Food , Jane Austen novels, how to keep houseplants alive, should Russell Crowe have really been cast in the 2012 version of Les Mis? Where one can find the best quality denim? What birds you’ve had in your garden recently?
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
