Crazy Coffee requests.
« on: 07/02/2018, 11:57 AM »
I rarely read mainstream news, but was shown this article.

I got a laugh from it, as my family has robust discussions about "vegan philosophy", diet fads and nutrition.

Hope you get a chuckle from it:

Hehehe ah that's awesome... yep I remember some very odd orders in all my years of barista work.. It's amazing! And it's good in a way as it expanded our skillsets in learning how to prepare really different orders.

To each their own, but some really didn't make sense... I do remember a favourite: a large, soy, 1/8 strength decaf latte. We had no idea what to do with the 1/8 strength, I think we even asked them how much coffee and so it was literally a teaspoons worth XD

I still get orders for 'dry' cappuccinos occasionally - all foam and no 'watery' milk

It only seems to come from Americans so I just humour them coz  I figure that they probably wouldn't know a good coffee if it slapped them in the face anyway!
