This barista loves every minute of it but wishes she could conquer love. At the end of each day, Christy heads back upstairs after she closes shop to ponder life, lovelessness, her past, future and fantasies.

As a barista, Christy opens her door to so many people, and each person she meets has a story. This book tells these incredible stories while leaving plenty of space for introspection.
