Shop of the year

That's where the coffee ceremony takes place everyday:

Grab cup
Pour coffee
Put sugar
Pour milk
Grab stirrer
Grab a cardboard thingy so you don’t get burned
Grab a lid


Have a good one.

I play it simple but people here are a bit fussy with their coffee.

So I sometimes have the pleasure to see a guy from Guatemala or Costa Rica or Mexico preparing coffee for his co-workers who are waiting for him in the truck.

So Jesus wants hazelnut and non fat milk, Antonio likes a lot of sugar and a shot of vanilla, Raùl wants a dark roast with half and half milk…Or was it? There is always a moment when the guy starts scratching his head looking at the mugs in front of him. He gives a quick glance at the pick up outside hoping that no one will realize that he has no clue what he’s doing.

I can only imagine the what the fuck did you put in my coffee that ensue but they put me in a very good mood.
