Farcical You prepare coffee in a coffee shop: that's it. Get over yourselves. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:25, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

barista = Someone who makes coffee, and is pretending that it reqiures some special skill. It does not. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:29, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

It's just PR and marketing by Starbucks and their many clones, the idea being to justify charging a lot of money for a very small cup of coffee. All the 'baristas' I've ever known have been totally unskilled, usually students on minimum wage working their way through college. As a PR strategy it does seem to have worked though, at least with some people. --Ef80 (talk) 21:36, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
Some coffeehouse employees may indeed need to “get over themselves,” but a barista is not an unskilled position.
Of course, this page is the place to discuss the article, not the subject itself. —Wiki Wikardo 06:25, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
