On behalf of all baristas everywhere

Posted on Wed, Aug 19, 2009 at 8:58 AM

Dear coffee shop-goers,
Please use common sense.

It is a coffee shop. Of course we sell "just normal" coffee. Just because we don't sell you a double-double does not mean we don't sell coffee.

When asked if you would like whole, skim or soy, or dark or medium roast, "regular" is not an option. We would not go through a list of possible options for you to just say "regular". 2% was also not an option. We would tell you if it was.

Also, if you are told that we have two kinds of muffins, don't ask if we also have blueberry. That was not one of the choices listed. We do not keep a secret list of baked goods that you are able to choose from if you are in the know.

And please be nice. It doesn't hurt to be polite and say thank you. A smile goes a long way.

---Thanks a latte
