At any rate, I understand there's quite a loyalty in baristas -- that they love their jobs more than most. But if you want to make more money, take that experience in excellent customer service to a family breakfast/lunch/dinner restaurant. You'll probably top what you're making by a significant amount. Work there for a couple of years; move up to a finer-dining chain restaurant; then move up to a high-end restaurant with dinner checks of $300-$500 a couple. You, too, can make $60-$75,000 a year waiting tables.
Thank you, Quazi!
