Yes. I'm a coffee snob. Do you think this is unreasonable?
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.Posted 3 years ago
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 £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.
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?Posted 3 years ago
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.. 😆pondoMember
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.Posted 3 years agoMrSmithMember
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.
