Italian Barista Champion Wants to Serve You Free Espresso in Exchange for a Question — Any Question


The under-caffeinated and the inquisitive, take heed: Italy’s 2008 barista champion, Giorgio Milos, is serving up free coffee and answers in front of At65 Café, by the entrance to Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, between noon and 2 p.m. today.

In a publicity stunt for Illy Coffee, the coffee pro and sometime columnist will gift you a gratis espresso, macchiato, cappuccino, or specialty drink in exchange for your question. We’re hoping that’s any question, so report back here if you get anything good out of Mr. Milos. The Times reports he’ll be giving away free buzzes every Friday through October.
