Mara Beaton is one of Adbibo Coffee Co.’s original baristas, joining the team when doors opened in 2013. In addition to serving up phenomenal hot and cold beverages, Mara bakes most of the tasty treats available at the coffee shop. In fact, she has completed her baking and pastry degree! Mara is also the resident expert at the large variety of teas that Adbibo carries. Adbibo has been blessed by Mara’s artistic talent and grants full credit to the painting in the entryway of the coffee shop to her creation.
Originally from New Hampshire, and by way of North Carolina and New Jersey, Mara has called Richmond home for nearly 10 years. Mara lives with her dogs, Addy and Chloe, her cats, Alice and O’Malley, and her five pet parrots. Her biggest passion is for the natural world. She loves animals, and especially birds. Mara enjoys traveling, gardening (she grows veggies, herbs and cacti), challenges and learning new skills. She enjoys going to concerts and loves Alice in Wonderland and Edgar Allen Poe.
