Yes, that's the problem! As long as you're predictable and get the same thing every day, it's great. But if you feel like something different, then it's almost as though you to start shouting and waving as soon as you can see the cafe, as otherwise they'll start making your regular drink.God forbid one day I change what I order.
Our local rail station has one bloke making coffee, between 7 am and 9 am, in the old newspaper cubby in the pedestrian underpass to the central platform . You can text ahead and order and pay on this app thing. Pretty nifty. Young bloke and he plays tasty 60s and 70s music as well as a bit of “young peoples” stuff.I've been going Friday afternoons to this one cafe. The barista literally sees me round the corner outside of the building and prepares a double espresso by the time I am the till.
