Notes from a Coffee Shop

It’s funny how the line forms at the coffee shop. None of us are entirely sure where to stand since the line doesn’t really seem to have a beginning or an end. So we make a decision, and we decide to stand behind THAT guy. Why do we assume that he knows so much better where to stand than we do? We wait patiently (and sometimes impatiently) for our turn at the register, and by the time we get there most of us have forgotten why we wanted coffee in the first place. The barista takes our order, and we once again find ourselves in a sort of bean-inspired limbo, waiting to retrieve the drink we know we want but don’t know why.

Does anyone ever order just plain coffee at the coffee shop anymore? Do they even serve it there?

    I've heard rumors that they serve plain coffee 🙂 Most of the time, the regular coffee I get from there has been bought in a big box with a spigot for a bunch of folks.

  2. Is it made from beans? Or is it just a powder that someone mixed with hot water?

    I don't rightly know. It's tempting to try and get a job there, scope out what really goes down at the world's most popular (and expensive, probably) coffee house.
