    Asking for Tips at a Coffee Shop

    For those who own or work as a barista in a local coffee shop,
    Would it be rude to ask questions about how certain drinks are made? Would you consider me wanting to know how you make a cappuccino or a latte at home as just going their for that info to just go home, make my own coffee, or steal your recipes? I have been asking what their coffee selection is being served for their espresso and drip coffee.

    Lol. They will never be able to replicate your recipes. I take that back. If they buy an espresso machine for $16,000 or more they might be able to after they are trained. I wouldn't be so guarded on your recipes. I tell everyone what is in my blends. I don't care. If they are trying to replicate good for them...they wont get it exact though. Instead of keeping your cards close to your chest..invite them to learn. Trust me they will buy a crappy $50 machine go home and play barista for about 2 weeks then the novelty will wear off.
