About the Author

This project began as a bunch of barista gossip scribbled in a notebook, written on smoke breaks and in-between shifts at one of those big corporate coffee chains in downtown Toronto, for Barista-Eyes-Only. Hidden in the backroom safe, this secret barista diary was eventually shared between co-workers, other cafés, passed on to customers, and then grew into a blog. Now, it's morphed into a full-length novel.

Like all good baristas, the real coffee girl prefers to stay behind a counter. Bibi Bilodeau is currently pulling shots in Iqaluit, Nunavut. But you can also find her onstage doing comedy or at airport, en route to her next adventure.
