An enticing scent of coffee wafted into the air of the “La Belle Epoque” bar.

John Zahno, the bartender, always bragged that he was the best barista in the whole city. For years he had painstakingly studied the properties of all the different types of coffee. Just by smelling the aroma, he could tell the country of origin, what variety it belonged to, what plantation it grew on, when it was picked, who the farmer was and what time of day it was harvested. When he made coffee, he created miracles with the foam. He created incredible images; once he was even seen reproducing the Sistine Chapel itself.

Two customers entered the bar. John loved trying to guess what they would order: would it be a ristretto, an espresso, a macchiato, maybe a cappuccino…? He was already planning to wander over the history of Ethiopian Moka coffee, the kopi luwak of Indonesia, or perhaps the Jamaican Blue Mountain … He was all excited.

“Hello, what can I get for you?” he asked expectantly.

“A Diet Coke for me and a grenadine for my friend,” replied one of the customers at ease.
