Get To Know Us- Equator Soma Cafe

I have been managing our SOMA Cafe, which involves smiling all day, getting our SOMA customers their coffee with efficiency and friendliness, and ensuring that our team balances the art of working hard and having fun.

Coffee has been a family tradition for me.  My great-grandfather started a coffee roaster in Roanoke, Virgina called H&C.  It was sold out of the family when I was a kid, but I always felt like coffee was my destiny.  It also doesn't hurt that while pregnant with me, my mom claims to have drunk four cups of coffee a day, so that may have something to do with my career choice.

Tayler Wiles Coast Adventure

This year was the 5th edition of our annual adventure along California's beautiful coast!  Each year we have done a slightly different rendition; from 3 days to 7 days, from Eureka to San Luis Obispo, and one time we decided to go all out and start in Portland, Oregon.  You can see every detail to completely recreate any of these adventures on my website including precise routes, food stops, and lodging for each trip to date.  This year our overall plan was to ride from Trinidad to San Luis Obispo over six days.  This was a lofty goal given both the distances of each day and the unpredictable past, present, and future weather forecast for California.  The buckets of rain that have been falling on Californians everywhere have done a number on the roads, and we knew going into this adventure that this could create a few obstacles.  But we were determined to try, so on the 13th of February we rented a mini van and headed North for Trinidad!
