Running a coffee shop
This is how…
Customer: Coffee of the day. Medium size. Hot.
Barrista: Always the same.
Customer: Well, you change the coffee every day, so I have to keep something constant.
Barrista: Today, the beans are from Yemen. Medium roast.
Customer: Ah. Terrorista barrista?
Barrista: It’s an exciting brew.
This is how my favorite coffee shop does coffee. Their daily coffee is a different bean, a different roast from a different country every day. It’s written up on a board. Next follows some banter. Then you get to leave.
