Well we survived yet another First Friday. It was an amazing night serving coffee, meeting old and new friends, and just watching the spectacle of the crowd. Not only did we get some amazing free cupcakes from Mimi, but we also broke in the new trailer and she worked just fine. As a result, we went through about 7 gallons of water, almost 6 pounds of coffee, 5 gallons of milk, and 1 can of whip cream serving approximately 95 drinks in a four hour span. We did also have a new drink on the menu which was the Honey Latte, but by far the most popular drink was the Carmel Mocha Latte. I am going to start working on Frappes and Smoothies to get ready for the warmer months ahead, so get ready for that.
Best moment of the night: A loyal customer telling me how cool my little latte art heart in his latte was. Made my night!!!
Lesson learned of the night: Nothing ever goes as you planned but if you stay calm you can usually find a way to work around it.
Weirdest name of the night: Some guy named Justice ordered a latte and I yelled out “There’s no Justice here!” He didn’t laugh (probably because it’s not that funny).
Strangest off menu drink ordered: A double shot of espresso in a 12oz cup filled to the brim with whip cream. I think I saw her add a bunch of sugar to it also.
Well till next time stay strong Grouchy Nation and drink good coffee.
