Meet the Team - Darby Callicutt

Hey everyone! It’s another great day for coffee! And a great day for you to meet the next barista in our feature series, Darby Callicutt! Affectionately nicknamed, Darbs was our second employee and has been part of the Soul Caffeine family since before we opened. Helping to put together furniture, setting up tables, and she and I even put the train table together in the Kids’ Corner. (Neither of us are handy, sorry kids!)


Darbs is originally from Fairhope, where she met Gabe years ago. He was the youth pastor at the church she attended. Last year, when she began classes at the University of Mobile, she was looking for something part time on the Eastern Shore, and Gabe thought she would make a great addition to the team…he was so right! We are so blessed to have her with us far beyond making coffee (but she does make a mean latte!) At UM, she is studying sociology with a concentration in social welfare, and is minoring in Spanish. She hopes to go into social work.


We asked Darbs to share with us some favorites of hers here at Soul…


Favorite Menu Drink – It’s a tie between the Vanilla Latte and a Pour Over of our single-origin Costa Rican bean.


Favorite Personal Creation – White Chocolate Latte with cinnamon on top


Favorite thing about working at Soul Caffeine – “I love the family atmosphere that we have as a staff. It is not just employees and bosses, it’s friends and family, which I think speaks loads about Soul Caffeine. I just love coming to work. It lifts my mood. I love that the sole purpose of Soul is relationships. People are our purpose, along with serving great coffee.”


Thanks for meeting Darby today! Come on by Soul Caffeine and say hello!
