How Not to Order Coffee In Specialty Cafe
While specialty cafe are popping around you neighborhood, many people are new to specialty coffee and come up with a lot of funny order. Please kindly respect to their menu and don’t order your drink accordingly .As These are the reasons why specialty coffee cafes are called specialty: They know what they’re doing, even if you don’t think they do!
Never Order “Espresso to go”
First of all, the problem with ordering espresso or espresso macchiatos to go: the small size paper cups will have your espresso going cold quickly, and with the unclear taste of paper to boot. You are encouraged to have it in ceramic, often while holding a demitasse in demonstration.
Don’t ask for boiling Latte or Cappuccino
“My cappuccino is not hot! Can you help me to boil it up?”. In some cases, customers will want a milk base espresso beverage with boiling milk, which doesn’t generally work because milk tends to cook and coagulate. Your best option is to ask the Barista to preheat the cup with hot water before making your drink in it.
Don’t Ask For Large Size Latte
If you go to a specialty cafe that has a 12 oz or 8oz latte as the large size, it’s generally pretty unwise to order a 16 oz coffee. It’s generally safe to just stick to what the shop offers on its menu as you are not in Starbucks or Coffee Bean!
If there’s one thing we’ve all learned in the past ten years of the coffee explosion, it’s that the drink is versatile, and people like to exploit that versatility. But specialty cafes aren’t here to showcase how coffee tastes with caramel and froth, and their offerings are what they are for a reason: to highlight the coffee. Here’s a advice: Kindly explain to your Barista exactly what it is that you want. And then, let them take that information and make your drink. It’ll be good, even if he’s grumpy.
