TWINS who started their coffee career in Hebden Bridge are continuing to cause double trouble in their new job.
Sami and Stef Rose leave customers guessing who is who. The 32-year-old twins, say they regularly have to explain themeselves to baffled newcomers at the trendy cafe in Liverpool.
Sami said: “Customers have a double take all the time. It’s quite fun seeing their jaws drop. People usually go, ‘Oh my God I’m seeing double!’ but we are used to it so we just smile and explain.”
Steph took up her job at the Contemporary Urban Centre Cafe in Greenland Street, Liverpool, a year ago and was recently joined by her sister Sami.
They worked together in Mooch in Hebden Bridge.
“Customers are quite amused when they realise they are being served by twins And, once they get used to it, people like the challenge of having to identify which one is which.
“It’s a game we’ve played all our lives since we were little,” said Sami.
The confusion continues with their similar voices.
Stephanie, who is younger by 20 minutes, said: “Some people think have got us sorted-out and can tell which is which.
“But then when we open our mouths they tell us that we sound exactly the same.
“Even our mum gets confused on the phone.”
The pair also perform in an all-girl four piece band, “The Sylvias”.
