Rik's Ramblings

It is possible to take the coffee prima donna thing too far and Barefoot Coffee Roasters did it. They refuse to serve me espresso shots to go.

The last thing you want to be doing is coming between a man and his espresso shots at 8:30 in the morning.

I don't care if it grates your barista sensibilities, I want my damn espresso in a little paper cup and I will have it in a little paper cup.

I'm going to use it to make Americano when I get to the office so what's your damn problem. Would you rather have me buy an Americano that goes
cold and requires microwaving when I get to the office? No, I thought not.

Don't make me go to Starbucks bitch!


  • Did the barista that refused to let you get your Dopio togo explain why? It could be store policy.
    A big 16 ounce hot cup of coffee goes stale and sour alot slower than 2 ounces of espresso which goes in minutes. At my store, if shots sit for longer than 30 seconds with out being used in any way, I throw them out. That is the time frame we're looking at.
    Their image is based on great tasting coffee. They would do themselves a disservice if they let you walk out with coffee they know will taste bad.
