Not a fun place to work for!!!!! The employees are great...as for Carmen...ha! NO!!!!! She's cheap when it comes to EVERYTHING!!!Including paying her employees and vendors on time and having her checks not bounce! Beware also she adds sugar to the Chocolate and white chocolate powder...just to make more of it!!! OH AND if your white mochas taste funny sometimes its because she uses VANILLA BEAN powder! That woman is SPASTIC!! She will tell you to do something then yell at you for doing it and not doing something else!! That place needs to be under new ownership!!!!! If you wonder why they're are always new employees it's a 6 letter word! CARMEN

Actually, I worked at Coffee Diem/Coffee Time in Lompoc. And yes, i know they aren't owned by the same people. But the drink sizes are the same. Same at Starbucks too. Small drinks are 12-14oz. Medium is 16. Large is 20. thanks (: I would know. If you don't like coffee diem, just go to starbucks.

She's done it again! Santa Maria is ever so proud of outstanding new Coffee shop in the Mall and especially of the owner who is ever so present on the everyday efficiency of drinks, food and customer service. Great Job and keep those fantastic employees coming! We love going there for the best service in town! We wish you the best of luck! See you on fortune magazine.

Coffee Diem is the WORST place to go. Take it from me, I only worked there for less than a month and I couldn't STAND Carmen??s work ethics!!! She never made two drinks the same way and if you look at her blended drinks she puts almost an inch and a half of whip cream at the bottom of the cup so you're getting much less than the size of the cup and adds about two inches of whip cream at the top. IT'S REDICILOUS!! At Starbucks a Venti Blended Drink is $4.30 and its 26 ounces (trust me I checked) and here its $4.95 for the biggest size here is 24 oz. Not to mention she never pays people on time and is a manipulator! Her employees were having to go out and buy basic supplies like mops, containers, ice, whip cream, sanitation rags, thermometers for the milk so you didn't burn it, & etc. for her store because she was so unorganized to do it herself. When we came there were no sanitation rags to wipe down the espresso machines so when you bought a mocha or w/e you were receiving crusty milk that had been re-steamed 3x in the last 3 hours and were receiving old shots. Not to mention she sampled everything she served to you as she was making it! Disgusting. What??s worse is that one of the new girls she hired from Starbucks told me that when she was checking milks she discovered that they were selling 2 day old spoiled milk to customers! 2 DAY OLD CURDLED MILK!! 3 GALLONS WORTH!!! And when she confronted her about it she laughed and said "Ooops glad the customers didn't realize it." IS THAT HONESTLY WHO YOU WANT TO BE BUYING COFFEE FROM?!?!? Not to mention they only have us re-brew coffee when we run out. That could be stale 5 hour old coffee you're drinking. Carmen has been withholding checks, not paying her employees for the time they worked and constantly has someone stealing money from the registers because there??s NO accountability. Her checks are constantly bouncing! She doesn??t follow labor laws at all and is in CONSTANTLY violating health codes! Pastries are never dated and are only thrown out when her employees happen to see mold. Until then, they??re for sale. Have fun getting food poisoning!
With all this said, do you really want to buy coffee and pastries from Coffee Diem and support Carmen in all she??s doing??? Think about that next time you drive by a Coffee Diem store. Why not try Caf Monet or Blue Sky Coffee if you feel like supporting local businesses or try Starbucks out if you want to buy coffee from a world renowned company.
