Saying Goodbye to my Favorite Barista - My neighborhood Peet's is closing
Breaking up is hard to do.
Especially when you're on a first-name basis with your barista. Especially when he knows exactly what you want before you even order.
And most especially when he's warm, engaging, smart, funny and always in a good mood.
The Peet's near my office is closing down after 20 years. That's a very long time. And while I've only gone to this shop for a little over 5 years - that's a huge measurement in terms of cups of coffee.
And even though it's Friday, I'm more than a little sad that I just went in for the very last time.
On the bright side, I could get off one train stop early, add another ten minutes to my walk and meet my guy at his new Peet's location.
Who am I kidding? I can never get that far ahead in the mornings. Even with coffee.
