We want to highlight the baristas around the country that help us get through our early mornings, long meetings, and reunions with long lost friends by preparing the perfect cup of coffee. Today, we interviewed Xavie from Drip in Atlanta, GA. Below are 5 Q + A’s to help us get to know our first barista of the month. 

What is your favorite part about being a barista?

The customers. We get the fun and eccentric types a lot and it’s really cool to chat and get to know them!

What is your favorite “hidden menu” drink?

The honey vanilla latte. Also, the cubano – raw sugar and a double shot of espresso – it’s my favorite drink to start off a quick morning. 

What is your preferred type of coffee? Do you know where it originated from?

A light roast from Guatemala that is roasted here in Atlanta by Batdorf and Bronson. I like it because of its caramel hints – it’s not super sweet and has an earthy taste.

What make this coffee shop unique?

There are two locations and both have really great vibes. The flow of this shop (in Glenwood Park) is awesome. People can just kind of sit anywhere in the shop and feel comfortable – customers are to free to move the furniture where ever they want to.

What is your most memorable moment as a barista?

A customer once gave me a $30 tip because he felt that I improved his date. I had set the right music, added hearts into their latte’s and “guided their night to perfection”.
