Tom Baker (@MaximumGrindage) is looking for a tactful way to ensure you get quality espresso … without being a jerk

So help me not be a jerk.  How do I tactfully approach this problem?

It’s really an eternal struggle that plays out across many different work-place situations: someone cares about the product and wants it to be respected. But how to approach the people responsible for making that product what it is on a daily basis? How do you influence standards for the better without being a jerk?

I don’t know if I have any advice yet – I’ll be sure to hit him up with it if I do – but, if you have any to give, if you could, help a brotha’ out here. I’m interested too.
