Once upon a time there was a regular customer who would always order the same thing: iced americano with a splash of heavy cream. Everyone behind the counter knew her name and she was featured as a local artist. This regular came in so often that Elise asked her if she wanted to get paid to be there! Why not work at your favorite place in town!
I adore long distance backpacking and do yoga any chance I can get. I am a certified yoga teacher. Me and my husband met at a coffee shop so they are very special places to us. I also love to go on walks, as far as my legs will take me. I love reading and riding my bike. I grew up exploring the desert of Nevada and have fallen in love with Utah. The smell of sage is where my true home is.

Yasmine loves everything about working at Affogato…the community, love, support, our customers and of course, making all of our amazing drinks! Her favorite is the Iced Oat Latte which consists of cold brew, a bit of honey, Oatly and ice.
Her ability to memorize most ALL of our loyal customers drinks is astounding as she often has their drinks ready before they finish at the register! Her gut laughter and beautiful authenticity shines through as she connects with both her co-workers and customers. Yasmine, you are one loved woman and thank you for being such an integral part of Affogato West

— Savana —
Savana loves the outdoors and exploring, including hiking, swimming, spelunking, and off-roading. She enjoys spending time with her friends and family, but still looks forward to spending time alone with a good book. As a curious person with never-ending questions, Savana aspires to become an astronomer and make new discoveries about the cosmos. Affogato is Savana’s very first job, and she loves everything about it. The customers and making them smile, creating awesome drinks, and our fantastic southern Utah community. Her favorite drink is a Raspberry Almond Cold Brew with a splash of Oatly. Mmm delish!
It is a pure delight having Savana as an integral part of our Affogato Crew. And that girl can tell stories so be ready to listen! We love her to the moon and back and are so happy that her mother introduced her to us!
Leann is enamored with the outdoors, ever in awe at local plants and insects, and enjoys hiking, camping, and wandering in mama nature. She’s an athlete, artist, foodie, nerd, and writer at heart. Becoming a barista at her favorite hangout place in town is sweet icing on the cake! What a joy to work with this Affogato family of coffee connoisseurs who all happen to have hearts of gold.

Ashley’s favorite drink is an Iced Lavender Latte but switches between that and a Honey Oat Latte depending on the day.
Ashley loves to travel and enjoys visiting local coffee cafes in the various places that she visits.
She is excited to be a part of the Affogato crew and getting to meet so many other devoted Affogato customers.

— Elise —
Elise West as many of you know is our phenomenal owner. She enjoys a Davis & Clark coffee to start off her day! Her passions include coffee, being involved in her community, her family, friends, and being a musician. A beach babe living out her dreams in the Utah desert. There is nothing she craves more than the salty air in her face and the sand between her toes. What keeps her sane in a desert you ask? Well Affogato West of course! When Elise envisioned her very own coffee house she wanted a comfy, funky place for people to be crying on shoulders, sharing happy moments, and simply living life all around her!
The love and energy that Affogato West exerts is nothing short of amazing. Is it normal to have this much love for your boss?!? Who cares, we love the heck out of her. There are too many hats Elise wears, and man does she pull them off! The time and energy she puts into the shop should leave her just enough time to sleep! But somehow she finds away to spend quality time with friends and family, which include 2 children, 5 grandchildren, her dad and beautiful friendships. Elise, from the bottoms off our little coffee filled hearts we thank you for your love and passion. We have so much more in store for the future but we could not do it without you. Thank you for creating not a coffee house, but a coffee home for all of us.
Love, The Breakfast Club (aka Affogato Employees)
