For all its surprises, positives, and negatives, 2016 is a year we definitely won’t be forgetting any time soon.

We watched as athletes set new records in the summer Olympics; we lived through one of the most polarizing elections in recent history; and we lost beloved figures in music, film, and television.

In this office, it’s pretty easy to get to know the people working around you. Between quick bump-intos at the coffee machine and the occasional libation at the end of a week, we sometimes take for granted just how connected we can all be here at Altos. But with the addition of a new member to the team, it’s nice to take some time and get to know a little bit more about who we’ll be rubbing elbows with.

That’s why we’re happy to welcome our newest team member and Account Manager, Sarah Szopa, to the Altos family. We sat down with Sarah for another edition of All About the A, where she had a lot to say about her love of unconventional pizza toppings and her plans to be a practical millionaire.

We’re all interesting in our own ways, but without working directly alongside us we’re a little worried that those who only know our "work" don’t know enough! That’s why we’re starting a series called "All About The A" to help you get familiar. So, as we still don’t know exactly what to call ourselves, we hope that this series will help you realize that our "team" is a winning one.

Our leadoff hitter in this new series is Ben Chauvette. Ben’s a developer at Altos with a lot to say about hot beverages. Here’s more, in his own words:
