Mar 14, 2024Jason Harvey

Welcome to the latest edition of our series, Common People, where we introduce you to the incredible people that make up the Common family. This time, we sat down for a coffee with Daryl, Cafe Manager at Mayvn cafe.

What’s your go-to coffee order and what does this reveal about your personality?

Cortado, usually because I’m having to drink it in a rush. I can also count to five in Spanish.

What role does coffee play in your life and why does it matter to you?

It feels good to give people a meeting point and a basis to blether, plan and work things out.

Which is your favourite Common roast and why?

Complex. We don’t currently have it on offer in Mayvn, so it’s always a treat getting a cup of it. Fruity as.

How does coffee fit into your idea of connection?

Coffee feels inclusive, with so much variety in the traditions around how it’s made and drank, which is a really amazing thing.

Can you share a memorable moment when you connected with someone over a cup of coffee?

On one of our first holidays together, my partner and I broke a Nespresso machine by mistake and it was probably the making of us.
