THE RYDGES POST

Hotel News ian 7/15/2013

If you drop in to Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel for a coffee, apart from enjoying an excellent hit of your preferred style of caffeine intake, you could bump into Ben the Barista.  Or to be more precise, Ben the Bassman Barista.  When Ben’s not whipping up a coffee storm you may find him indulging in his other passion, music, playing bass-guitar.  Sadly, not even the cleverest of multi-taskers can indulge in these two fine passions simultaneously.  It can get very messy.

Ben comes to us with a background in both aviation and hospitality, which is rather fitting.  He has worked for Menzies Aviation and Virgin Australia as well as for Starbucks and Shire’s Quick Shot Café.  As they say all the time across the road, Ben - “Welcome aboard!”
