The guy who's just there to promote his band and/or DJ set
There is a flyer somewhere within eyeshot that he can point to. Often leaves for weeks at a time on tour. Has probably dated a customer. Closely related to the guy who's more interested in picking out music than making coffee.
The girl who really needs to be studying right now
Short on small talk, high on stress. Is muttering historical facts under her breath. Makes your coffee really, really fast.
Health Department be damned, this guy refuses to shave his face-forest regardless of the fact that it's essentially a lint-trap for coffee grounds.
The guy who dresses in all vintage clothing from before WWII
Thrift shops on his day off. Likes to talk about the classic novel he's reading. He doesn't really need those suspenders to hold up his pants.
Ohhhh. Right. That's Rick.
Special thanks to the baristas of Thunderbird Coffee in Austin, TX.
