Aiden hummed to himself as he poured milk into a latte for a customer, decorating the top with some fancy latte art. He enjoyed coffee, and everything about it. He liked learning about different roasts and brews, he liked learning new designs for on top of his lattes, he loved the coffee culture, but most of all, he loved the taste and smell. There was something so comforting and homey about it; all he had to do was inhale deeply here, and he'd relax. All his stress from schoolwork would just melt away and he was in his element. The only thing he liked more than coffee was music, and fortunately, the music that they played here was pretty damn good.


He finished putting the mustache in the man's cup, and handed it to him with a smile. The guy grinned when he saw Aiden's masterpiece and thanked him heartily before returning to his table and his Macbook Pro.


Aiden turned to the stereo and changed the track to something a little more folksy with a lot of interesting guitar picking, and then turned to help the next customer in line. Today was decently slow, which wasn't too bad. That meant he could take his time on each cup of coffee and brew it with extra care for each customer. Every person that came in here liked coffee, and Aiden's job helped him empathize with all these people. They all had lives and opinions, and coffee brought them all together.


Maybe part of the reason Aiden loved coffee so much was the poetry of it. Yeah, you could look at a cup of coffee and say, "okay, yeah, that's a good drink, but it's only worthwhile if the caffeine content is enough to jumpstart the heart of a dead elephant." But that wasn't the point. The point was the differences in the undertones, the different flavors that came out in different roasts. Coffee culture was a lot like wine culture, and Aiden appreciated it even more than he appreciated wine.


There was one thing Aiden was super glad about: taking the summer off. He had gone home for a month, but had come back to school for his job and his friends. He'd elected to not take any classes during the summer terms though, which made for more time for shifts at Midnight Serenade.
