Re: Barwoman at Dean & DeLuca
These new-fangled coffee places are the work of the Devil. it takes ages just to get a coffee while Johnny and Julie No-Stars faff about with steam nozzles, banging old coffee much out of chrome thingywatsits, and pass orders through five different people none of whom seem to be aware of their job. There's one of those Costa Fortuna jobs at T3 at Manchester Aiport, and it's always got a queue a mile long, even though all people want is a shot of caffeine to get them down the jetway without crying. Why can't they have a filter thing going like they used to?
I hate those places. Give me a caff with an old dear and a kettle any day. Fortunately they still exist out here in the long grass.
