Please Tip Your Barista

It is the holiday season and many of us are enjoying coffee with our wifi while on the road or visiting family. It is customary to give a tip of your change or a little extra to your barista when you get a draught of coffee. However, I have noticed that travelers are tipping far less often than I would have suspected that they would at Starbucks. Tips are an important bonus for underpaid baristas who are already financially hurt by the increasing corporatization of their work place.

I would like to remind everyone to consider tipping their barista, if not always, at least at this time of year when they are hard at work providing warm drinks when they may prefer to spend that time with their friends and family.
