Have you ever walked into a Starbucks or a local coffee shop and felt a bit overwhelmed by the Coffee Connoisseurs slinging their lingo? “I’ll have a tall half-skinny half-1 percent extra hot split quad shot (two shots decaf, two shots regular) latte with whip.”
If you’re new to the coffee game it can be difficult to know where to start. So when it’s your turn to order you ask for a “medium cup of coffee”. Maybe you haven’t figured out what you like or maybe you froze and buckled under the pressure thinking everyone was staring at the coffee “Rookie”. So what does the barista give you? Exactly what you ordered. A plain cup of coffee. McDonald’s, Dunkin Donuts, and the Keurig in the lobby of your building will give you the same thing.
How do you like it? It’s nothing special. A bit bland. Plain. Doesn’t really fit your unique tastes. You think it could be much better, but you just don’t know where to start. Or maybe you lack the motivation to venture out into the unknown world of coffee looking for a better drink that fits you.
Can you see the money lesson in your coffee?
