Most of them are Mexican if I'm not mistaken
I believe most are from all over Central and South America, not any specific country. It's been a long time since I was a regular there.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Why is that relevant? They work with coffee all day and would therefore know. Especially the Clifton employees who do the actual roasting.

Um...

I saw one white, one Mexican barista.

 
The beans mostly come from the countrys they are named after. Some are blends from multiple countries and some are just a randomly named flavor and are sourced from China

It's just as relevant as your comment about the store "being named french press while they don't even use a french press"  ::)

Apparently you don't understand how how branding plays in to the name of store. It's common for stores to have a name that is related to the industry they service.

It's also common for stores to have unrelated names. Penguin clothing doesn't sell penguins. . .

The race of the employees makes the branding of the store?

I understand marketing very very well and understand the associations conjectured with the French Press name yet feel the irony of the name vis a vis brewing method every time I patronize them. Maybe that was even their intention. (Think the "Out to Lunch" store)

I wanted to know why the baristas race made a difference regarding their knowledge of bean origin.

I'm pretty sure he meant the beans originate mostly from S/C America.

I am aware. I use one every morning they coffee grounds sit in the water for a while then u press the filter down, forcing the coffee up. The store french press only brews pour over hence the irony.


Today they were using a Hario v60 ceramic

https://www.groundworkcoffee.com/products/hario-v60-coffee-dripper

I’ve seen them use other brewing methods, including French press. I believe you can order a French press, at least you used to. According to their site - “We brew coffee in many ways, espresso, drip, cold brew, japanese cold drip, french press, vacuum pot etc.” The only one I haven’t seen is Japanese cold drip.

When NJ American Water says that watering lawns, filling pools etc. is prohibited, how can they actually enforce that?

Or is it enforced the same way Murphy's out of state quarantine is enforced?

Was wondering the same. So I filled my pool and turned on my sprinklers... now I’m waiting to find out what happens...

After googling, correct, and I guess I have. He writes cold brew and Japanese cold drip, not sure of the difference.
