Top 5 Things Customers Say That Make Baristas Want to Punch Them in the Face:

1. Happy Friday
2. Why are you yawning? Don't you work in a coffee shop?
3: Barista: How's it going? Customer: Tall Mocha
4. Can I have a caramel macchiato?
5. Really? This is all you do? I assumed you did something else.

Has the potential to be really interesting - an insider look at the coffee shop culture of the pacific northwest. reads more like advertising for various coffee shops with not much "insider" info besides a strong dislike for starbucks language. some amusing stories and terminology, like "Why Bother" - a no-fat, no-caffiene, no-flavor cappuccino.

I love coffee. I could practically smell the shots being pulled while reading this book. Love all the stores and the passion the barista's have for their job. This would be a great book to have in the car and use as a guide for a few fantastic road trips. It was published in 2009, so a little research might be in order to avoid disappointment.

This was a fun book to read especially if you love coffee, live in Seattle (or Portland) and only drink Starbucks cause it has a drive through!

Just pretty much a list of coffee houses and bits of info about them. Not what I expected and I didn't care for it.
