Is it true Boise Dutch Bros. Baristas Get Paid to Flirt with Customers?
Dutch Bros. Barista-Friendly
There's friendly and then there's Dutch Bros. barista-friendly.
More than any other coffee house in the Boise-area, Dutch Bros. employees have a reputation for service with a smile that precedes them. Morning, noon, or night, rain or shine—no matter what's happening in the world—they're as inviting as a jolt of caffeine.
Is That Dutch Bros. Barista Flirting with You?
Dubbed "broistas" by Dutch Bros., the coffee slingers' cheery disposition and interest in what you're up to on any given day always seems sincere. But has a Dutch Bros. broista ever blurred the line between friendly and flirty?
A co-worker of ours had been tending to her infant in the back seat of an SUV while her husband ordered her an iced Americano at the Dutch Bros. off Milwaukee. While her husband waited for the drink, the co-worker said she couldn't help but notice how flirty the twenty-something broista had been with him.
Just before she handed the Americano to him, the barista looked at my husband's wedding band and said he was 'too sexy to be married.'
She said this about five seconds before I finished up with the baby and climbed back into the front the passenger seat. My husband's face was beet-red and the barista looked like she'd just seen a ghost after I clipped myself in.
I chuckled over my husband's obvious embarrassment, but it was still awkward. -Anonymous
