Love Letter Request for November, 2012

The More Love Letters team writes this so much better than I could. Here is the love letter request for November’s bundle.

tis’ the season

Dear You, Coffee beans grind– steam rises– orders mount– espresso, latte, mocha– skim, whole, double shot, soy– decaf, frappuchino– lines getting longer,patience growing shorter. The holiday madness has begun. I cannot imagine trying to keep all the orders straight and attempting to please so many customers who think the coffee world revolves around them. This season of giving will have Grinches who grumble and Mad Hatters who think you should hurry to pacify their impatience. I will not be one of them. I will order my pumpkin spice latte with a smile and say ‘thank you’. I am sending you some love to help you through the chaos. Hold on, the season will not last forever! Wishing you a wonderful holiday! Love, One of your grateful customers.

: to thank a "latte."


Last November, we invaded New York City with love letters for baristas & latte makers alike at some of the busiest coffee shops on the avenues. We had so much fun with the experience that we could not resist bringing the Barista Bundles back again. This time we are hand-delivering them, mailing them, and dropping them all over the place, and we need your help!

We are calling on you for this fun-filled holiday mission, just in time for the season of thanks & giving: Rope your love for lattes, your cravings for caffeine, your gratitude for the ones who rarely get appreciation, all into a love letter this season. Instead of grumbling like the Grinch, help us thank the ones who make our season extra foamy + sweet.

Write one, write two, or maybe three! But
please mail all love letters by November 30th to:

Barista Bundles
PO Box 2061
North Haven, CT 06473

During the second week of December, some of the More Love Letters team will be mapping out a route across Manhattan, hand-delivering letters, and documenting the deliveries throughout the day for all of you watch… Live love letter tweeting + vlogs with our lattes?! Yes, please!

Need inspiration? Check out some samples from last year.

staying local?

Perhaps, perhaps, you are already crooked into that cozy corner spot of the coffee shop in your own hometown. Be the first one to thank the hard workers at your hometown coffee shop for that extra foamy cappuccino. Send a photo + location to and we’ll add it to our map!

With crossed t’s and dotted i’s,

  1. Wish more people in the world thought like you!

  2. Both my daughters have been barista’s. Just the other day my younger daughter and I had an experience with a barista – we were really nice, but you could tell she was so frustrated. I could only imagine what was going on in her head at that moment. I’ll try and squeeze this in, what happened to the beginning of November? ACK.

    • I have no idea what happened to the beginning of November, Lynn, we seem to have jumped right into the last two weeks of it!
      And I know what you mean about baristas. I’m not a coffee person really, but oh boy, I’m sure baristas need extra patience around this time of year. Your letter will surely be a great read, since you have more of a personal experience with the subject. Maybe have your daughters write one, too? And how about leaving one for that barista you wrote about here? I bet she could use a love letter!
