    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.

    Nope. You are not out of order if it costs that much or more than £2.

    If you know what you are ordering then you should expect to get the order you want anything else is unacceptable. Unless their definition of your specific order is made known to you in advance. i.e. it will be brewed by our novice so you may have at a discount etc. You get my drift.

    That’s one reason I don’t order anything with milk because some of them might brew it differently according to their own preference without me knowing. To keep it simple I always order Americano (£1.80) and even that I get variety of shite ones.

    Wait a f****g minute Craigxxl. Are you suggesting that I instruct the barista on how a cappuccino should be made? I don’t have a special way I like it. I LIKE a cappuccino.
    Either way, I seriously doubt she would remember me and certainly not enough to think. Oh look! Here’s that lovely gentleman who likes to have the drink he asked for made a special way. Let me get right on that.

    I’ve been going to the same little coffee shop in Chippenham for many years, must be getting on twenty at a guess, long before all these other interlopers started up, and I always have the same thing, a mocha, because I happen to like them. While the staff has changed over the years, it doesn’t take very long for new girls to say “usual?” when I go in, or just start making it without me even saying anything.
    Quality varies slightly, if the chocolate isn’t quite stirred up enough, but in all that time, I’ve only ever needed to ask for one to be remade because it wasn’t hot enough. And I believe the machine was playing up then as well.
    I now have a choice of half a dozen places in town, but I prefer to stay with a place that has given me good service for all that time.
    Elsewhere, I always go to Cafe Nero, and I’ve yet to have a poor coffee there.

    Jesus.

    I seriously despair at the way coffee drinking has become something that anyone is interested in. I see people ‘unable to function without my coffee in the morning’ and would like them to go away.

    It’s a hot drink with caffeine in, have one and piss off.

    I’ll send a bottle of my fresh piss over with a dash of caffeine. You can knock yourself out.

    With your fresh piss?

    Would you like a pregnancy test done on it too?

    Most importantly was your hot milky drink before or after noon?

    Yes you have to own up to what the exact time of your order?

    tbh if you want something done properly do it yourself, this is not a rant

    I have tried my best at home to make the best coffee I can and I am there, now every coffee shop disappoints so I do not bother.

    Get a espresso machine and a good grinder, then go to a decent coffee roaster get some good beens and enjoy (wogan coffee in Bristol is highly recommended by me)

    Bottom line we work hard for our money so why waste it on shoddy service

    Are you inferring that if I were a female it would somehow explain something to you. Or you just making a pass at me?

    Coffee snob no. Surprised you didn’t get a cup of Nescafe.

    Think you need to spend a bit more for a descent cup of coffee
    thats the trouble when low end cafe’s try to tap into the higher end market
    They just don’t have the quality products and the know how to achieve the finished product.

    This is pretty much my experience, but do get the occasional one that suits me – am working away from home ATM, though – in Chippenham. If CountZero would like to tell me which his favourite shop is I’d like to give it a go.

    Coffee for downhillers.
