Jill Stanley & Jaime Boddorff are two rad Stumptown gals who were both working in Production at our Brooklyn Roast Post, until very recently when Jill moved west to become a Roaster’s apprentice in Seattle. Before she left, Jill and Jaime compiled us a diva-heavy mix they’d play on days when they shared a delivery route and the boys weren’t around. Jill says, “As much as we love hearing guitars and screaming and psych-rock all day, we really, really love our divas. Sometimes a gal needs a little Beyonce boost while sitting in Manhattan traffic.” Who could argue with that?
What do you do at Stumptown?
Jaime: I work in production.
Jill: I work in Brooklyn’s Production department. Driving and scoopin’.
What do you do when you’re not at work?
Jaime: I love taking photos and doing nail art!
Jill: I am a film nerd, a walking enthusiast, and I love to travel. Copenhagen, here I come!
Favorite things to eat right now in New York?
Jaime: Tacos and Ramen and Ice Cream.
Jill: The lamb sandwich and fries at Balthazar. Bee Sting pizza at Roberta’s.
Favorite corner of the city?
Jaime: Oh geez there are so many corners. I like Rockaway Beach Blvd and 96th, because you get fish tacos and the beach all in one.
Jill: Morton Street in the West Village. I’ll move in as soon as I win the lottery.
What can you tell us about this mix?
Jaime: As much as we love hearing guitars and screaming and psych-rock all day, we really, really love our divas. We can’t really get away with listening to divas at the Roast Post. Maybe in Cold Brew…
Jill: Our crew tries to maintain a happy medium with the stereo. There’s
lots of diversity, but we typically shy away from anything that’s considered
too wacky or divisive. It’s a fantastic policy. The van is a different animal, especially if those divisive tastes align. I lean toward classical music to keep things calm, but Jaime and I discovered a shared love of Beyoncé on one of our “Ladies Day” delivery routes, and from this a tradition of listening to pop music was born. Beyoncé is the best.
Radical. Thanks ladies.
