The joys of coffee

The barista at Saint Lazarre Café Francais in Cassabella Lane doing her magic.
Barista (pronounced: bar-east-ta) is an Italian term for a skilful and experienced espresso bar operator. Baristas can instantly talk the coffee lingo, understand the origins of coffee, explain the subtle differences in roasting techniques and produce outstanding espresso based coffee drinks in the blink of an eye.

This establishment is probably several steps up and above anything we could find at the local Starbucks.

Nice photo.
