Faces Of Northeast: Abigail McCaulley

Abigail McCaulley is a barista at the recently-opened Splitlog Coffee at 546 Olive. McCaulley has been working in the coffee scene for nearly 10 years and was previously a lead barista at Homer’s in Overland Park prior to joining the team at Splitlog. 

She has a business administration degree from Mid-America Nazarene University and said helping to open the second Splitlog location has been a great opportunity for her because she hopes to open her own shop one day. 
“I wanted to see how a shop opens, what the struggles are, and what the perks are. It’s been nice to see how a shop opens and what it looks like for the owner,” she said.

McCaulley lives in Strawberry Hill and works at both locations, which she said has been a great experience for her. 

“I just like new adventures, I like to do different things and work with different people, so it was a good opportunity.” 

Since the opening of the Pendleton Heights location, McCaulley said she has enjoyed seeing new faces come in and experience the shop for the first time. 

She also said she loves the neighborhood vibe, which is something she hasn’t seen as a barista before. 

“A lot of the neighbors walk here, which is cool,” she said. “I’ve never worked in a neighborhood coffee shop, so it’s neat to have that vibe and see kids walking from their house to get donuts or hot chocolate. It’s great we have that opportunity.” 

Overall, McCaulley said she loves working at the Northeast location and encourages anyone to come in and grab a great cup of coffee. 

“People are really genuine and nice over here,” she said. “We have older couples that come in regularly and one of the women paints while she’s here and brings in her grandkids.  That’s the kind of atmosphere that we want to create— really family-friendly but also a good place to chill and have time to decompress.”
