“From the Barista” will be a once-a-week cup of coffee for your mind. In the fine tradition of Trint’s White Board Quip of the Week, and in respectful homage to my barista friends, Tommy and James, I want to welcome you, the eight-dollar-a-day coffee-junkie, to a forum wherein I explore the issues that other coffee shops are afraid to discuss. Whether you’re a mild coffee drinker or whether your teeth are so stained that you can gargle warm water and spit out a relatively strong cup of coffee, you will find something that entertains you, thrills you, or just makes your stay in rehab a little nicer. Here, you will find the things that corporations are afraid to print on the sides of their coffee cups…things such as this, which was told to me many years ago by a military buddy:
“Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter-accusations.”
Every week, the coffee will be fresh; every week, I’ll be standing behind the bar ready to dispense a warm cup of wisdom; and, every week, I’ll be watching the tip jar.
