The Forge3 team’s favorite beverages.

We all know the work day isn’t the same if we don’t have our favorite beverages on hand to get us through! So we asked the team to tell us about their drink of choice. Here’s what they said.

Becky Hane

Favorite Beverage - Glass of Water on Wooden Beam and Trees and Grass in the Background

Becky Hane, a Content Manager, says…

I quit drinking soda entirely two years ago—and I’ve been trying to be healthier since then—so my drink of choice is just plain old water.

Zack Yurch

Favorite Beverage - Orange and Beige Tub of EarlyBird Morning Cocktail Mix

Zack, our Director of New Business, says…

EarlyBird Morning Cocktail is how I start my day. It has electrolytes as well as caffeine to give you the boost you need to start the day right! (And, no, there is no alcohol in it!)

Alexis Nasser

Favorite Beverage - Mug Image of Buffalo and the Word Roam on Coaster Next to a Scale

Alexis, a Client Experience Manager, says…

Eric, a Visual Designer, says…

A cup of coffee to help get the morning going and the designing flowing!

Ewa Henderson

Favorite Beverage - Beige and White Takeout Coffee Cup With Computer Monitor

Ewa, another Visual Designer, says…

This is an Almond Milk Chai Latte from Callaway’s Coffee & Bistro, a local coffee shop near my house where they know me by name. It’s my go-to source of caffeine, and it’s delicious!

Rose Hayes

Favorite Beverage - Two Espressos With Espresso Maker

Rose, our Lead Project Manager, says…

One word: coffee. Most days, I’ll use my French Press but since my boyfriend gifted me an espresso maker, some mornings I’ll go a little wild and make lattes! Though once it’s after noon I usually switch to decaf or grab some seltzer or kombucha.

Keira Lenig

Favorite Beverage - Glass of Water and Yeti Travel Mug With F3 Logo

Keira, a Visual Designer, says…

With my cup of coffee and a glass of water, I find that nothing is impossible!

Carolyn, a Client Experience Manager, says…

I love a nice cup of lemon tea with honey first thing in the morning!

Steph Brace

Favorite Beverage - Mason Jar Mug With Foamy Beverage and Straw

Steph, a Visual Designer, says…

I’m in a coffee rut so I tried blending some bottled Starbucks Vanilla Latte with ice – it’s delicious!! New summer fave.

Tracy Rivers

Favorite Beverage - 14 Mugs Lined Up in 3 Rows

Tracy, a Digital Marketing Consultant, says…

Coffee, coffee, and more coffee!

Ian Zeiders

Favorite Beverage - Cold Brew Coffee Bottle Next to Glass of Iced Coffee

Ian, our Lead Content Manager, says…

As long as it’s pure cold brew with nothing in it, plenty of ice, and a seemingly unlimited amount, that should be enough to get through the day.

Bethany Jorgensen

Favorite Beverage - Large Starbucks Cup With Red Liquid and Tumbler With Disney Characters

Bethany, a Project Manager, says…

My workday beverage of choice is lots of water and anything that will give me an extra caffeine boost!

Kassie Rainford

Kassie, another Project Manager, says…

I love healthy smoothies with lots of fruits and veggies! Either for a quick breakfast or after a long run.

Liz Allebach

Favorite Beverage - Hand Holding a Starbucks Iced Coffee With Order Label Visible

Liz, our Product Implementation Manager, says…

Before COVID you could catch me working from Starbucks at least once a week! Try this drink if you need a caffeine boost!

I LOVE flavored seltzers. I could seriously drink them all day.

Kayla, a Client Experience Manager, says…

My mind is forever stuck in the warm summer months with my daily workday beverage blend – cold brew, oat milk and coconut creamer!

Michelle Longo

Favorite Beverage - Large Plastic Cup of Water With Can of Coke Zero

Michelle, our Digital Marketing Specialist, says…

I hate having to refill my water, so I use this giant 32 oz cup to cut down on trips to the kitchen. I am trying to quit soda and chemicals, but my guilty pleasure is still a Coke Zero at lunch.

Devon Beck

Jeff, our Founder and CEO, says…

The pinker the drink, the better it is!

Favorite Beverage - 2 Bananas, Glass With Chocolate Protein Drink, Container of Protein Powder
