Grande Latte is a socialite.

Ms. Mocha has a knack for finding her way.
A natural treasure hunter, she loves being faced with puzzles and challenges along the way. “I’ll find my way!” is her personal motto, and her superpower allows her to solve riddles and open hidden doors.
Problem: Ms. Mocha is covered in mosquito bites today after spending the weekend geocaching, and woke up to discover her water heater was no longer working! (If that cold shower didn’t wake her up, we don’t know what will!)
Mocha’s Motivation Infusion: Discover her source of inspiration. Lack of motivation can be caused by many things. First Mocha is tasked with discovering her root cause for this lack of motivation, and then gathering the necessary information and tools from inspiration leaders to help her achieve her goal and get her work done.
*Clue-This lack of motivation is likely the cause of multiple problems occurring at the same time. First understand the problem, then find a solution for it.

Percolator is a little bit of a perfectionist. After being asked to bring a desert to pass for an upcoming graduation party, Percolator is tired after baking well into the night as he got his chocolate chip cookie recipe “just right”.
