    Default What Your Barista Really Thinks

    Hereā€™s What Your Barista Really Thinks About | FWx

    What goes on in a barista’s brain? Mind-reading technology isn’t quite ready for prime time yet, so to get into coffee slingers’ heads we’ll just have to settle for what they say anonymously on social media.

    Whisper is an app that allows you to “anonymously share your thoughts with the world.” Because users are free to speak with impunity, the company claims we can get an inside look at how people really think—including the baristas at our local coffee shops.

    In a recent post on Mashable, Whisper offered some of the app’s more intriguing barista confessions. True, anonymity allows us to lie just as easily as it allows us to tell the truth, but deep down, don’t we all want to believe that our barista is a bit crazy? It makes us feel less guilty that we probably don’t tip them as much as we should.

    Here’s the sad truth…










    ....I take issue with the whipped cream one. I want coffee, not dessert.

    And I never tip at a corporate coffee place, it just doesn't feel right. But then I rarely ever go to Starbucks or even Peet's.

    That really kills me when servers at restaurants do this. I'm like, I am NOT impressed with your memory. I WILL be impressed if you get my order right.

    At one point, when my mom was asking for a frapp every single day, the place I would go to would have these knuckleheads who NEVER wrote anything down, and not only didn't get my order right, but also served people before me who had ordered after me. I felt like I was in some kind of secret SNL skit.
