Etymology[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

barista (plural baristas or baristi)

  1. A person who prepares coffee in a coffee shop for customers.
    • 2021 March 10, “Stop & Examine”, in RAIL, number 926, page 70:
      "From behind the counter of this provincial train station coffee shop, Joanna was barista and unofficial shrink to wildly varied London-bound travellers," writes author Laline Paull. Confessions of a Barista on Platform 1 was published on February 9 by The Firle Press [...].

Usage notes[edit]

  • Barista, in Italian, is of masculine gender, but used in reference to both men and women. For English speakers cursorily familiar with Italian grammar, it may appear feminine on first encounter, as evidenced by the existence of the hypercorrect derivation baristo, intended as its masculine counterpart.

Derived terms[edit]

  • baristo (hypercorrect masculine form)
