“Oh my goodness, I was not expecting this. I didn’t even know I was nominated,” Holly Friberg reacted into response to her selection as Pueblo’s top barista. The 42-year-old mother of six and grandmother of soon to be two has tended to Puebloans’ coffee needs for the past nine years at Starbucks stores around town. The past four have been at the Fourth Street Starbucks. “I love my job,” she said, “I get to interact with people and make the stuff they want.  Starbucks is a great company to work for”
