The Happy Barista


  • Write your coffee order on your cup, or use a post it note.
  • Make sure your cup is clean, although most cafes won't mind giving it a rinse, too many, too often can slow down orders and impact service for other customers.
  • Bring a cup with a lid unless you've asked your barista if no lid is an ok lid!
  • If they discount your coffee because you UYOC then maybe tip them if you're feeling generous.
