Coffee is better when your barista is bitter… Image Posted on May 7, 2014 by goddesstale Port Townsend, Washington. The home of writers, the Olympic Mountains and deeply bitter baristas. AdvertisementShare this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
thanks! It is a beautiful town that is fun to explore.
So what do Baristas in Port Townsend have to be so bitter about ?
This is an excellent question! To be fair, it wasn’t all baristas in PT, just one. The town is charming, on the water, sleepy town. But 2 days in a row this barista was sour sour sour. No amount of perkiness or friendliness could sway her. My friend tried to win her over with cheerful “Good Morning!” but she met a wall of early morning apathy. My friend and I, both 42 yr old women, did noticed she perked up when a cute boy came in the door!
Ah… I try and do the same with grumpy Taxi drivers. Sometimes you can win them round and sometimes not! Always worth the try!
Probably bitter because there is not much to do if you are a local there 😉 I live about an hour away, but visit a lot because I like Ft Warden.
I think her bitterness might have had something to do with the face that my friend and I were not teenage boys! ha ha
She perked up when one of those walked in the door. Ft. Warden is great! thanks for reading. 🙂
Hah probably so then. No prob, I love the way you write.
What a wonderful compliment! Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. That is very motivating to keep writing. 🙂
Ahhh! Port Townsend! I vaguely remember the town, I don’t remember the barista, but I do remember the great cup of coffee I had there. It was one of the best I have had in my long life, ranking right up there with the one I had one morning in Green River, Utah a few years earlier. Thanks for the fond memories. Take care…
It really is a great place with a great pace. The bitter barista made for a great story to share. Thanks for reading!
