Today was my first opening shift in quite a while...it was totally cool...
Objectively speaking, opening is much better than closing. You go in at 6:30am, start your day with a delicious latte, brew a few pots of coffee and help the masses. Piece of scone.
I, however, prefer to close up shop. I like sleeping in, I LOVE kicking people out of the cafe when the time comes...actually I think that's the only reason I truly prefer closing.
Anyways, this was my latte at 6:20am (that's right, I was early).
