Do coffee shops discriminate?

For coffeehouse junkies everywhere, Slate.com explores coffee shop economics and more.Waiting for Good Joe asks if coffee shops discriminate against women.

[T]he conclusion of American economist Caitlin Knowles Myers.... Men get their coffee 20 seconds earlier than do women. (There is also evidence that blacks wait longer than whites, the young wait longer than the old, and the ugly wait longer than the beautiful. But these effects are statistically not as persuasive.)
More Slate coffee talk regarding Starbucks' elusive "short" cappuccino and how to open an independent coffee shop and watch it destroy your life.

    I'm not sure if 20 seconds will make me call the ACLU, but I'll start being more vigilant and hyper-sensitive to the possibilites. Damn barrista Aimee and her perky morning ways.

    Is that the barrista at Izzy's?

    I live in the most generic suburb in the world where every grocery store has its Starbucks and there is another Starbucks outside next to the grocery store. We know not of this Izzy's.

    Sorry to learn you have not experienced Izzy's Coffee Den. There's a perky barrista who fit your description. Though her name I do not recall. Asheville's coffee house scene is quite amazing.
