I just started working at a coffee shop and I am really enjoying the environment so far.
The people that come in are super friendly and relaxed, and my co-workers are all really helpful and knowledgeable.
Even though it’s a new environment for me, I feel quite comfortable there. One reason for my comfort is that the air conditioning is always perfect. I am anemic and have always been sensitive to air conditioning, so being in a place with optimal temperature is always rare for me. I really believe that seventy-five degrees is the perfect temperature for a coffee shop, and that’s what we keep the thermostat at. Fluctuating the thermostat too often can be challenging for the HVAC to keep up with, especially because the front door opens and closes so often throughout the day. For this reason, I believe that keeping the thermostat at seventy-five usually maintains the balance between cool air and humidity with the outdoor temperature constantly flooding in. Depending on the weather outside, the thermostat will show some fluctuations throughout the day that can’t always be helped. Good thing the shop owner has a SMART thermostat so we can monitor it and make adjustments even if he isn’t there. I know that the thermostat is just one small part of the experience that makes it a comfortable work environment though. I think I just enjoy being around real and authentic people. My last work environment had a lot of toxic positivity and people who had no interest in others but themselves. It’s good to be a part of a community that loves to give back.
