Damn you barista, why must you be so cute?

Posted on 06/13/2007 in Geek by Matt

Ever heard a woman say she has a thing for a guy in uniform?  I've got a similar thing, except it's for baristas.  It's an inexplicable attraction to someone who makes coffee for a living.  I think this attraction exists because of a few different reasons:

  1. I don't know how to make a latte, therefore watching a barista fly through my order in a cloud of hissing, bubbling, beeping machines is like watching a samurai at work.
  2. I live near a large college campus in a part of the country where coffee culture is huge, so working at a coffee stand instantly makes you seem hip
  3. Many people appear to look smarter with glasses on.  I feel the same way about baristas: because they know how to prepare beans in a cup I instantly assume they have a degree in quantum physics.
  4. Coffee is my crack habit and my local barista delivers the crack.

Obviously my reasons for finding baristas to be so alluring are completely unfounded, but nevertheless this attraction persists. I think everyone has a type they are attracted to; whether it's men in uniform, firemen, lawyers, geeks, or particle physicists (lab coats are hot).
