Stranger #9 - Celeste, Barista

Celeste works in my favourite coffee house in London. (Flat White in Berwick Street, Soho).


She never seemed to stop moving.... making coffee,delivering coffee or sandwiches to tables etc.... and always with a sunny smile. I was able to persuade her to pause for 20 or 30 seconds to take a couple of pictures. Not sure I could either be that cheerful or work that hard all the time!


You can see her colleague still beavering away at the espresso machine in the background.
