Friendliest Barrista

Andrew Linares at Flipnotics

Chances are if you've been to Flipnotics Coffeespace more than once, barrista extraordinaire Andrew Linares will know your name. He's one of those rare individuals who make you feel as if you are the most important person in Austin. When he's not busy making Moonquake Shakes, a Chewbacca Chicken Salad, or any of the other yummy treats on Flip's menu, he's probably busy rockin' out with his band. Now don't get us wrong, we appreciate all of Austin's hard-working and friendly barrista community. But instead of serving it, this year Andrew takes the cake.
