Starbucks IntimidationDecember 10, 2006Points to Ponder The times they are a-changin’. This post seems to be older than 14 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Life is choices. I own a car, but I also ride a bike to get around. Don’t assume. peter December 11, 2006 at 4:48 am My local coffee shop has college students for baristas, they all get off work and pull out their books and join us customers. amelie December 11, 2006 at 11:13 am heck, man, i´m intimidated every time i see one of those coffee jockeys slinging cappuchinos behind the counter. wish i had the art. quinn December 11, 2006 at 11:55 pm The proper strategy is to have a big textbook from a tough class (I use modern physics, a class which I dropped after the second day) on the outside of the book you’re actually reading (like Hop on Pop).

Andrew Ferguson January 24, 2011 at 7:06 pm My name is Andrew Ferguson and i’m a physics major. I want to pursue coffee as a full time career. I’m displeased that when I type in “Andrew Ferguson barista” into a google search your blog is in the top ten. Coffee is a much bigger industry and brings together some of the brightest people. Someday I’ll have done enough barista work that I’ll not have to read see this anymore.
