November is Barista Bundle month for More Love Letters - and since I'm a fan of baristas I thought I would share a letter I sent in for the bundle.
You are AMAZING. Yes you - the one who might be tired from a long day of serving coffee. Let me pick you up more than a shot of espresso.
I'll say it again. YOU ARE AMAZING. You spend so much of your time bringing joy to others. It might just seem like a coffee but I guarantee it is more than that.
To a new parent it might be an elixir of peace from the sleepless nights and crying children. To a businessman it might be the boost they need before a big presentation. But to a college student it might be a treat to help them get through a crucial study session. The common thread here is you.
Your hands are the ones making those moments possible. And while it might seem like just another peppermint this or eggnog that, you are giving someone a little piece of joy.
So for all the times you don't hear it - THANK YOU. Thank you for making countless drinks, each better than the last. Thank you for your patience when minds are changed and machines malfunction. You make a difference, and we are thankful.
A coffee drinker
You still have a few days to send in a letter for a Barista Bundle - groups of letters that will be hand-delivered to coffee shops all over NYC! (You can also leave one locally and tweet or email a picture to help with the love letter map - find out more here!)
Have you written a love letter lately?
