Baileys aka Freeloader
Baileys is our resident robodog -- jack russell x chihuahua mix, 10 years young. He roams around during non-peak hours. He loves food and he is very good at begging, hence his name; Freeloader. As much as we love our customers spoiling him, he is overweight and we are monitoring his diet, so a friendly reminder not to feed him. Strictly back scratches only.
Theo aka Freeloader II
Theodore is the latest addition to our family. He was sighted wandering alone on the streets of Makati as a 2 month year old pup. He had no collar on him and was bloated as a puffer, so we took him to the vet and bought puppy food and gave him fresh water to drink. We took care of him for 6 months when we were in Manila. We then decided to bring him back to Singapore to meet the rest of the family and has since been Baileys best pawfriend and partner-in-crime, also busy freeloading at Free the Robot. He is slightly shy and timid but he doesn't have a bad bone in his body and needs time to warm up with people. He is an askal (mongrel) but we believe that he has a terrier mix somewhere.
ARCHIE is our second robodog -- pure bred shiba inu, 2.5 years old. He doesn't roam around freely and is rare to visit the outlet. He loves to have his own space and runs about like a cheetah, so FREEDOM is really all he wants and we all work so we have no time to babysit him. However, we all still love him and we include him in our team.
Fiona aka Fi the Robot
FIONA aka Fi The Robot is definitely a name you should be familiar with if we are your regular coffee spot. A pioneer and co-founder of Free the Robot, she believes that a successful business should have a holistic approach that stems from extraordinary customers service, exceptional team players and quality products. She has also taken an interest in baking last year and has started selling out trays of home-baked brownies. If you are lucky, there may be lose slices of brownies left to go with your coffee.
Nora aka Coffee Jedi / Head Barista & Roaster
NORA, our Head Barista AKA Coffee Jedi is also a pioneer & co-founder of Free the Robot. She has been in this industry for 10 years and is dead serious and passionate abut making a perfect brew. We knighted her Coffee Jedi because she is a walking coffee dictionary and is always still out to learn the fascinations of where, how, what and all about coffee -- and she wants you to know that if you think coffee knowledge is simple and boring, you are absolutely wrong. She undertakes the beverage department -- our signatures and ROBO ONE Vanilla were crafted and developed until the taste were to her satisfaction. Fun fact: She loves gymnastics and her 'bae' is her bicycle.
Vicki aka Senior Barista
VICKI, Senior Barista and our very own speedy gonzales -- She started work with us with little experience, but hungry to learn. She was taken under Nora's wing and she learnt the ropes with many trials, tribulations and a lot of practise. Today, she runs a tight shift with the team but she doesn't only cover the coffee station making a solid cup of coffee, she moves from one station to the next when required and covers the floor when needed. So, skills aside, you might catch her doing everything but don't underestimate her speed and strength behind those cute dimples on her face.
Leo aka Head Chef
LEO, our head chef and loves food as much as us, whips up the most delicious meals and hand makes all our tender meatballs. Also, he bakes all our bread in house, so next time you sink your teeth into our burger, just know that the burger bun was made from scratch and he lovingly kneaded the dough.
Sharon aka Sous Chef
SHARON, our sous chef is the right hand woman of Leo -- she also gives feedback and continously fine tunes to make the recipe a little more "home cooked". She believes that when you cook with fresh and premium quality ingredients, you don't need to do much and let the flavours bring out its goodness.
