Barista: Can I get a drink started for you?

Me: No, thanks. Just a pound of coffee beans today.

Barista: Need them ground?

Me: No, thanks.

Barista: Old school, huh? Tell me: how do you do it? Do you just dump the beans in and push a button to make coffee, or what?

Me: No, I have separate machines: coffee grinder and espresso maker. I can only make coffee one cup at a time.

Barista: That really is old school.

Me: The machine is made by Saeco but I bought it 15-20 years ago when it was sold under your label.

Barista: I should get a machine like that.

Me: I have a spare. . . .
