Team Adda

Adda Coffee & Tea couldn’t exist without the hard work of our talented team. Their ability to think creatively, problem solve, and work together is what makes Adda so special.

During our recent closure, many of our staff have taken on new roles to make Adda stronger and more engaged with the community than ever before. We can’t wait to see you again during your next visit to Adda.

In the meantime, get to know our incredible team!
