Quills' Baristas and their Fun Times

This last week has been an exciting one in the life of a Quills barista. Besides the always new and exciting happenings on the home front, Quills' baristas have been having a blast sharing coffee with the world.

Baristas Sarah Welder, Philip Revell and Ginger Goss were drinking on the job, coffee that is. Taking in the art and fun that the Buy Local First Fair brought around. They said that it was a good day to sling coffee with other local business and were proud to be part of such a vibrant local scene. 

The Speed Museum hosted Quills' baristas John Letoto and Brittany Jarboe Jennings. Team Quills was excited to serve coffee surrounded by such fantastic art. We try to create artwork with each coffee drink we serve, so we felt right at home. 

Team Quills was excited to host the second part of Louisville's Rosettas for Relief, an effort to support those in Japan recovering from crisis.  Organized by Quills barista John Letoto and Sunergos barista Jesse Harriot, we supported the cause by doing what we do best, coffee.

The fundraiser took a fun edge on latte art competitions with bids on "smite" cards to cause a little challenge to competitors. Things were kept lively with Emily Sill as the emcee and all the Quills crew were on hand helping with raffle tickets and prizes, pour overs and picture snapping. All in a day's a work in the life of Quills barista.  


Quills About Town

Coffee goes good with everything. It’s a known fact. Quills will be testing this theory to full capacity this weekend as we go out into the big wide world of Louisville and share some of Quills’ finest. We will be setting up shop at the Buy Local 1st Fair and the Speed Art Museum tomorrow May 22nd.

Quills’ very own baristas will be hocking our wares from pour-overs and iced tea to some tasty goodies and fancy coffee accessories. All with a little love. Don’t worry, we’ll have some over ice, so you will able to savor it any way you please.

The Buy Local 1st fair is becoming a Louisville tradition, with this being the third year running. This is Quills’ first year to have a booth, but Quills was well represented in the Latté Art Competition last year as winners and judges. Quills is excited to be joining some of Louisville’s makers and sellers, bringing some quality coffee to the mix.

The fair will include everything from brewers to farmers to artists to chefs, all with some live music and performers entertaining your eyes and ears. The local biz spirit is one of the things we adore about this town, and a special thanks to the Louisville Visual Art Association for hosting such a great event. 

Quills will also be showing some coffee love to the Speed Art Museum for the closing of Monet and the Impressionists. There will be a hootenanny of folks there to celebrate the final day of such classic artists. We will be there with our friends from Please and Thank You with coffee goodness galore. Thank you to the Speed Museum for inviting us to have coffee with them.

Quills Events: More Literary Action from Typecast Publishing

Quills is excited to put the literary umph in the shop with our next event hosted by Typecast Publishing. To keep you from getting the post-Derby blues, Wednesday, May 11th, will be a curtain call for three poets that keep it classy but are unbuttoning their collars for the laid back crowd at Quills.

Catching up with Jen Woods, the head honcho of Typecast, she expressed her excitement for hosting another event at Quills. She says that Quills is an excellent fit for her events because Quills customers are quality listeners, loving the poetry just as much as the poets love to share. And of course they all hang out here anyway, so might as well make it formal.

The vision and products of Typecast are also a good fit with Quills. Going the extra mile to pursue the dream of making beautiful, quality books that are engaging to all people, Typecast and Quills have a lot in common. Jen Woods has the love of books that we at Quills have for coffee. Good thing coffee and books go together like PB&J.  

The three poets featured this Wednesday are Matt Hart, Peter Davis, and Michael Schiavo who will all be reading lovely words from their latest books. Schiavo will be joining us from Vermont, Hart from Cincinnati and Davis is a Hoosier, crossing the river just for us. Their will be songs for your ears by Kirby Gann and fine espresso by Brittany Jarboe Jennings.

Join us this Wednesday, May 11th at 7:00pm for flow of words and coffee, like wild horses kept at bay.
