Coffee shops are everywhere. On every street corner in every town in America. And inside each and every coffee shop is a hive of baristas who don’t want to be there. Baristas with dreams. Dreams large and small. Coffee isn’t their end goal as one might assume.
But if I showed you a picture of a barista, could you tell me its dream? Let’s find out, you confident bastard.
ACTUAL DREAM: “Singer-songwriter but one of the good ones. Jason Mraz good.”
ACTUAL DREAM: “Find my biological mother and see if she has superpowers too.”
ACTUAL DREAM: “To own my own third-wave specialty shop that uses single-origin, direct-trade beans and serves only perfectly extracted shots or a 45-min long ultra-slow-pour-over to customers who GET what we’re doing.”
ACTUAL DREAM: “Potato. That’s it.”
ACTUAL DREAM: “To ride on a plane. With Jason Mraz.”
