Barista could be Spanish In the Spanish language the suffix ista is added to a noun to signify a person who works with that noun, for example taxi ---> taxista (taxi driver), bajo (bass)---> bajista (bass player).

It's not. Italian and Spanish are similar languages, but the use of barista in the English language comes from the Italian (along with espresso). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.150.0.78 (talk) 22:17, 15 August 2008 (UTC)
