I ordered a macchiato at the in-boxstore-plus-supermarket Starbucks a while ago, and the PBTC steamed a largish pitcher of milk, pulled a double… and then consulted her book.
“I’ve never done one of these before,” she said.
“No problem,” says I. “First, put the book down.”
“Pick up your pitcher and swirl it really hard so it’s all happy froth.”
“Now take your spoon and get a dollop of froth and drizzle it on top of the espresso.”
She does, and looks at me expectantly…
She hands me my drink. I hand her a tip. She will go far….
