Have you ever noticed the guy behind you in the café line who doesn’t have to place his coffee order and the barista knows him by name? This guy’s got it sorted! If you rely on a coffee fix to kick start your morning in the office, get to know the crew in the café, and they’ll be putting your order through before you’ve even swiped your card!
