Honest Barista

“The smell of coffee beans being brewed ready for a morning routine. The aroma of breakfast sandwich, freshly baked for the early-risers. Customers making orders in a rush and late for work. That’s my typical morning. But it’s never just saying hello, making the drink and serving great coffee. One day a customer in his early fifties left his wallet in the counter. There were IDs, credit cards, and some cash. I knew it was his from the photo on one of the cards. I ran and followed him, and handed him his wallet. He hadn’t realized he left it in the counter. He said a lot of thank you’s and I was really just smiling the whole time. It’s one of those moments that stays with you.”
