    Don’t worry, you’re not a coffee snob; you drink cappuccino.

    You could have mebbies helped her; ‘I normally have 1/3, 1/3, 1/3’or some such. The way you’ve written it up, sounds like you were arsey which may have been your privilege but won’t necessarily get you a decent cappa from a Saturday girl in a cafe.

    The clue is in the word ‘snob’.
    When did it become something to be proud of?

    I’ve found some of these new places pretty rubbish to be honest.
    The last place I tried had some Scroobius Pip lookalike serving, who just looked blankly at me when I asked if they serve mellow birds.

    Maybe she hadn’t been taught by her boss? If you spoke to her in the way that you’ve implied in the OP then you’d definitely have come across as a condesending ‘snob’.

    Why ruin coffee by putting milk in it.? Milk is for a mug of tea not for coffee.

    I’ve had coffee at Birches valley cafe for several years now and practically every time I’ve ordered a cappuccino, I’ve been disappointed.

    Coffee snob , no. A bit gimp for consistently going back to buy poor coffee, yes.

    I have the same problem op. I’m a proper real ale aficionado and can I get a decent shandy anywhere!

    Bit of a leap ain’t it sponnah. Interesting how you read that into my statement. Being proud of it I mean.

    The drink you were served (at a very reasonable price) was not to your taste. The way you responded like a petulant child and were rude to a young girl is totally out of order. So yes “unreasonable” to describe your behaviour is the right word.

    I’ve had coffee at Birches valley cafe for several years now and practically every time I’ve ordered a cappuccino, I’ve been disappointed.
    Yesterday I finally broke down when I was passed one that resembled hot milk. I handed it back and said that I’d ordered a cappuccino. The girl said she’d make it again and did. The next was even worse! She basically boiled the already heated milk with the steam in an failed attempt to create some foam.
    At Β£2.20 a pop I was getting a bit pissed off. I asked if she new the difference between a Capp and a latte. She said she did so I asked her again if she’d make it correctly.
    Finally, the chap who appears to be in charge came over and made it for her.
    1/3 espresso, 1/3 milk, 1/3 foam. Bang on!
    Now, was I out of order? Because my thinking is that if you are working as a barista, you should damn well be able to make a decent drink.

    That’s pretty dumb when you think about it.

    Cappuccino is fine, as long as it’s drunk at the correct time of day. Lots of wannabe coffee snobs here I see. πŸ˜‰

    Well, your op states you believe your actions were reasonable. πŸ™‚
    And you admit to being a snob in the title.

    If you’re not proud of it, you’ve got a funny way of showing it.

    Or is this a cry for help? πŸ˜‰

    Andyrm. Do you consistently get crap service and put up with it? I asked twice politely. At want point do you think it reasonable to expect to get the product you asked for or should I MTFU and drink black coffee like all the NON coffee snobs here? Why should the price you pay for something dictate whether it’s actually what you get in return?
    I’ll take your insult on the chin though because you are entitled to your opinion even it is unreasonable and stupid.
    No offence mate of course.. πŸ˜†

    If only you had gone to Starbucks. You could have referred her to the corporate training manual.

    You could have mebbies helped her; ‘I normally have 1/3, 1/3, 1/3’or some such. The way you’ve written it up, sounds like you were arsey which may have been your privilege but won’t necessarily get you a decent cappa from a Saturday girl in a cafe.

    I’d go along with that. Might be just how it’s written, but it does sound like snob has a superfluous S on it.

    You are not a coffee snob.
    Did you ask what the TDS levels of their water were and if they were going to be getting an EK43 in now they are all the rage? Do you have a hangover from the coffee festival after party after party (where you were on the free booze list) No, so shut up and go back to your frothy provincial cappuchino.
