Article: The High Cost Of Free WiFi

Whoa, I don’t think Dorothy wrote this article in a coffee shop. Though for me I don’t see a huge difference between this and reading a broadsheet – same problem, and should simply be managed by the coffee shop.

In case you spill coffee in the car

Now, this is funny!!
pump espresso machines

Well, there I was minding my own business on the Starbucks Patio when all of a sudden a gentleman jumps out of his Porsche, quite upset and cursing up a storm, he’d spilt coffee on his interior. He parked his car and walked back in to get a coffee cup with a better lid on it, and he stopped to chit-chat and unwind, he was pretty upset when he said to me;

“Darn [not the exact word he used] this Coffee Lid, It Popped Off, and Now Coffee is All Over My Seat”

Coffee shop injuries

This shouldnt be funny but hey:

People have been drinking coffee and tea for centuries in various cultures across the world. Many people consider coffee or tea consumption to be a vital part of their daily routine. However, the temperatures at which coffee and tea are served has risen substantially with the use of machines that can super-heat the milk with steam.

Coffee shops can be great places to hang out, study, or conduct group meetings. However, there are certain hazards that can result in moderate to severe injuries. Some coffee shop dangers stem from:

  • Super-heated milk
  • Coffee warmers set too hot
  • Drink or machine spills
  • Over-crowding

Injuries in a coffee shop can be the result of negligence or careless errors on the part of management or staff. A set of safety standards should be observed by all staff on a daily basis to minimize risk of injury.

Safety Standards

Coffee shop staff, including baristas and managers, should observe proper safety standards to ensure that their customers stay out of harm’s way. For example, baristas should not heat the milk or coffee higher than necessary. If the coffee is extra hot, they should tell you. If a spill happens, they should mop it up as soon as they can.
