Coffee love means barista love. People who serve with genuine care, a smile and a bit of fun make the coffee taste better. (IMHO) Thanks Johnny. A favourite out of home office workplace for me is a relaxing cafe. Just sharing the appreciation. I love my coffee like people love wine. I still remember discovering proper espresso coffee back in 1983-a rarity in the US at that time. Being in the heart of cafe culture while at UC Berkeley in California I was in heaven. Every day I enjoyed a real coffee on the way to lectures. Mind you the size was enormous. I was not a morning person :-) I later found studying in cafes was a way to enjoy it too. Today there are chain store coffee houses everywhere you turn. I worked with one once. So I know first hand it really comes down to care and service (plus good training). If every person served the other like it mattered there would be such a difference. Sadly though a lot of people are either rushed, bored or doing the work for only one other reason. Not here. Not the other places I used to or still visit. So appreciate your barista as much as your coffee and they might do the same.
