Repetition Coffee • Meet the Team
Coffee recommendation: ETHIOPIA / CHELBA
Owner / Green Buyer
After traveling and living abroad for 10 years, REPETITION COFFEE'S founder Amy’s Midwest roots lured her back to Kansas; starting a coffee business was the sum of all her experiences, allowing her to continue traveling globally while working to create social change. Throw her in a big city or a deep jungle any day of the week, she’s up for the challenge. With a master’s degree in international relations with a focus on trade, her passion for coffee and the opportunity to work towards a transparent supply chain helped make the decision to start REPETITION COFFEE. She works closely with the producers and farmers at source, forming genuine friendships with her thoughtful demeanor. The cupping table is her Zen zone, and if she isn’t roasting or sampling new coffees you may find her solving a puzzle with her three amazing cats by her side. She’s a true non-conformist, you’ll never see her up before 9am by choice, and it’s a fact that she drinks coffee in the shower! In 2018 she received a bronze medal for single-origin pour-over coffee in the North American Golden Bean Competition and again in 2023. In 2019 she was a Diedrich Roasters Scholarship recipient for the Coffee Roasters Guild.
Dancing Swiss Army Knife / Operations Manager
How we all just love Siena so much! This bright and bubbly personality brings a youthful energy to the shop, and often keeps us dancing with her various music selections. Her quest for perfection is top-notch, and her attention to detail is unmatched. Siena is a linocut artist and you can find her work on her Instagram as well as various small businesses around town. Her prints are not to be missed, and we’re so lucky to have her talent with us at REPETITION!

We’re lucky to have this talented, creative on our team! Carlyn works on our Farmers’ Market team most Saturdays, serving up yummy beverages to our local community. When Carlyn’s not working at Repetition, she’s playing with her indie-rock band, Izzy Hedges Band, or working her other job, as a marketing guru!

Sales Representative / Account Forager
Ian can bend just about anyone’s ear – especially when you get him talking about renewable energies, fossil hunting, mushroom foraging, Bluegrass festivals, and obviously, coffee. His mind-boggling superpower is that he can individually wiggle his ears! He’s a people person and that’s exactly why we have him working with new account acquisition.
Farmers' Market & Events Crew
Meagan is a highly driven, self-starter – you’ll find her slinging coffee beverages most weekends at our local Farmers’ Market. Apart from being an amazing person to work with, a mother, and working another full-time job, Meagan is busy training for her first half marathon to get her ready for a full marathon in 2024!
Coffee recommendation: RWANDA / VUNGA
Operations Assistant / Mechanical Technician
Rebecca is a fantastic addition to our coffee team; she brings a broad knowledge of coffee with her as she has worked in roast facilities, coffee shops, and as a coffee technician. Rebecca assists our operations team with weekly packaging and is our in-house tech! But this is just a mere slice of what she does. She’s also an amazing motorcyclist, loving cat parent, and a business owner. She’s café manager at Nostalgia Room, and jeweler for BKY Studio.
