She's a terrible barista
Over the past six months or so, whenever she's making the coffee, I just get out of line and leave. I have done this maybe six or seven times already. But this past Sunday, there was no one in the store except the three people behind the counter and me and she was the one making the coffee. I guess since there was no one around and I don't know why else, I blurted out, "I don't want you to make my coffee!" I guess I since I was the only customer, I couldn't sneak out and I just blurted it out.
I thought to myself, "Did I just say that out loud?"
The three people behind the counter just stopped what they were doing and looked at me. I then explained that every time this one girl makes the coffee, it comes out as warm milk. I have thrown it out after a few sips. She said that I should have returned it, but I didn't, and I just kept hoping that she would either be switched to taking the orders at the register or something else.
The manager suggested that I probably had picked up someone else's order. Many times and only when this one girl is making the coffee? And it's always warm milk? Who orders warm milk at Starbucks anyway?
I explained that I didn't want to start trouble or embarrass anyone and that I don't know why I just blurted it out, but I guess I was holding it in for so long and it just came out.
I told her that there is a guy there that makes perfect coffee every time. I love his coffee. She asked who it was, but I said I didn't know his name, but I said that he's a nasty guy with a shaved head. When I said that, they knew exactly who I meant. "Oh that's xxx," she said, without missing a beat.
So if you want good coffee at Starbucks on South Bayshore Drive, you gotta get it from the nasty guy. He's nasty, but is an excellent barista. There's a Janet Jackson song in there somewhere.
As for my coffee that day, the three of them behind the counter held baited breath until I took a sip to see what I thought. It was terrible - same as always - warm milk - but I said it was great, and I left. Probably never to return.
