Today a customer asked for a hot decaf coffee and to my dismay, I discovered that the decaf coffee had yet to be brewed.

What do you do?

In situations like this, in an attempt to not waste her time, or mine, I attempted to provide her with a decaf Americano, at the price of a hot decaf coffee.

She nodded yes to the alternative.

So being the smart barista I am, I asked for her name, and wrote an “A” for Americano, so the baristas on bar knew what to make in accordance with the queue.

In the midst of things, I forgot to check off the decaf box on her cup.

It was not until I got home, laid my head to rest that I realize what I had done.

I hope your okay. I didn’t mean to kill you.
