DS: I’m here at Caffe Aronne with Brian who is the barista I come here often, and he serves a mean cappuccino. So, Brian, how long have you been working here?
B: I’ve been working here for the past two years now.
DS: Nice, and in those two years, have you had any interesting things happen or any celebrity sightings at least?
B: Yeah, actually Will Ferrell came in here, a few months ago.
DS: Really? Will Ferrell came in here?
B: I think he came in with two friends and they were just kind over there in the corner, like, trying to stay away but I noticed them right away because I’m a big Will Ferrell fan. I was holding back the urge to spit out a line from one of his movies.
DS: No way, do you remember what he ordered to drink?
B: I have no idea. That was in the morning, so I think he had either a cortado or a macchiato or something.
DS: So, he didn’t order a wine? (Ha-ha)
B: No, it was in the morning. (Ha-ha)
DS: And what is the earliest that anyone’s ordered wine from you?
B: At around 9 in the morning.
DS: Wow really 9am.
B: Yea, I specifically remember it because I was like “hmm” in my head.
DS: And did you serve them?
B: I served them. I figured if you’re ordering a wine at this time in the morning, you must really need it.
DS: I certainly agree!
DS: And I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to speak to me. I get coffee here all the time and you are a vital part of my day.
B: Thank you so much I appreciate you as well.
DS: Thank you!
