Meet the Family

At Roots, our amazing team of baristas make up the life of the store. Without them and their creativity, hard work, and mad barista skills, Roots would not be possible.


Emily has been at Roots since 2017 when she moved back to Fort Worth from Washington State, where she was for school. She is a kind soul behind the bar and we know you will love getting to know her.


Alondra was born in California, and has been living in Texas for half of her life. She’s a Pisces, if you’re into astrology. Alondra is also a mom to two parakeets and describes herself as “pretty much a hip grandma that loves vintage clothing, tapes, good coffee, and music!”
