Anna, our wonderful Business Development Intern, is from sunny Melbourne, Florida, where she spent her days going to Disney World, watching shuttle launches, and bothering her parents. After realizing the sun exposure would lead to premature aging, she decided to go to Barnard College, where she currently studies economics and history. She is on the Columbia sailing team where she constantly pushes the limits of hypothermia and spends the rest of her time avoiding the winter. Fifty percent of her daily nutrition comes from popcorn, and her favorite coffee is the Stumptown’s Ethiopian single origin.

What's your first coffee-related memory?
My parents are both avid coffee drinkers, and they always had a cup with breakfast.
How did you find Joyride Coffee? Why did you decide to work here? Are/were you a coffee drinker?
I wanted to do an internship at a small business, so I googled "NYC start-ups" and found Joyride. I thought the concept was great. I've also been an adamant coffee drinker since high school, so Joyride is a perfect fit.
Are you the type to sit down at a café and slowly sip a cup of coffee or do you usually grab n go?
I generally love hanging out in cafés, and during the school year, I usually do work there. (Shout out to the Joe's on Columbia's campus.)
Do you consider coffee a trendy drink?
Any ol' cup of coffee isn't really that special, but artisanal coffee from places like Stumptown can be pretty trendy.
Not having gum. To say I have an addiction would be an understatement.
Sailing, tennis, and watching movie trailers. (They're the best part of the movie.)
There are simply too many to possibly choose one.
I am really messy. No matter how hard I try, the clutter seems to follow me wherever I go.
Good Will Hunting.
Depends on the day.
Lolita. Is that creepy?
