A coffee shop near me is known as the coffee shop where my dad’s favorite breakfast burrito comes from, so when I went looking for a nearby spot to buy coffee, I knew I’d be in the right place.
I called the coffee bar and spoke with one of the owners, who offered up a table right by the door for a coffee.
It’s hard to imagine that there are any other coffee shops in the world that have that kind of selection, but I’ll take a shot at it anyway.
I walked into the coffee store and the owner sat me down.
He told me about how the bar was named after the barber who was one of their first customers.
It was just one of many places he’s been in, so it felt fitting that the barbershop was named for him.
I asked if I could take a seat.
He gave me a coffee and told me it was good.
I asked if there was anything else I should know about it, and he told me to stop by again the next day.
A month later, I had a coffee in the coffee room, and it was still the same coffee.
I was so glad that the owners were so honest with me, and that they made the effort to make me feel comfortable.
I can’t wait to visit more coffee shops, and I’m sure the baristas will be happy to show me their new creations.
I don’t want to be the guy who had to ask for a new drink or the guy with the new favorite coffee to try.
I want to feel like I got a real good experience.
