baristo vs barista

April 15, 2008

ok lads and lassies–

there’s something you’d best learn and share amongst your closest and not so closest friends. that something is the word baristo.

although spell check wants to tell us this term is oh so wrong, urban dictionary tells us a baristo is a male working in an espresso bar…aka a dude barista.

it’s not that we don’t want to call men baristas…it’s more that we’d rather call them their own word. and that word is baristo.

fyi: plural barista is baristi.
