curse this dirty extraction
why must i receive this dissatisfaction
this is not the result of my action!
but i still have this crazy attraction
final time grinder correction
or it will in line for total annihilation

milk steaming is in operation
a rosetta is my temptation
ahhhhh i love my occupation

I'll bite. Where are you working now Jack?
And did you ever track down that Robur?


Keep the poetry coming. Maybe a limerick or two... :)

There once was a barista from Nantucket
His coffee was served in a bucket
But that was OK
Starbucks like it that way
Just add milk and ice then suck it.

No one makes the cut at campos. They go through so many people cos they are so regemented and no one is good enough for Will. It defeats the purpose of why baristas love making coffee. For me it is the satisfaction of seeing the smile on the customers face when they taste the coffee, but for Will it is something else. He is neurotic beyond belief. It makes it a great place to buy a coffee, but a horrible place to work. Just my 2cents...

I think anyone prepared to truly be regarding as awesome coffee (consistently) has to be a little neurotic and obssessive and fanatical etc. Good on them, for taking coffee damn seriously. I admire their resolve and wish there was more like them. And I think you'll find staff will be more frustrated by bosses that don't care at all, rather than bosses who care too much.  Just my 2cents...

PS Hey Jo, welcome to the board, do you work at Campos?
