Hannah has been with us since April 2012, after moving back to the UK from 9 years in the USA. She loves sunshine, beaches, palm trees, cocktails, people, and really good coffee. Married to a crazy, sometimes-bearded American and mother to an energetic toddler, as well as full-time manager of caffeine-fuelled employees keeps her pretty busy!
Role: Assistant Manager
Originally from Brunei, Sal has been living in the UK for the last 4 years. Once our most loyal customer, Sal became a member of the team in August 2012, and has been a credit to us ever since. She loves fashion, food, friends and Paris, and does her job at such speed she puts the rest of us to shame! Once you meet Sal, you’ll want to stop and chat to her for hours.
Alex is a newly-married, aspiring digital artist, fuelled by copius amounts of espresso. He enjoys cycling, video games and animated movies, and has become a coffee nut in 6 short months. You will often find Alex doing a brew ratio, cleaning the Synesso, and generally taking care of his #1 love – espresso!
Role: Head Barista

Hailing from the beautiful Norway, Madde has been in the UK for five years. With a MA in Fine Arts, Madde runs our Art Exhibitions, and also takes care of our baked goods. She loves Salsa and music, and keeps us on our toes with her strict organisational skills!
Liam joined us in September, so is one of our newest members of the team. Alongside his job at SixEight, Liam studies English at Aston University, is Chairman of the Gaelic Football Team, and is a member of his local cricket team in Wiltshire. Since working with us, Liam has developed somewhat of an addiction to coffee, and can often be found alternating an espresso, an Aeropress, and a cappuccino one after the other! In the future Liam dreams of opening an independent coffee shop in the States, as well as getting a decent result in his degree of course!
Always remember, keep calm and coffee on.
