BARISTA OR BARISTO, THAT IS THE QUESTION...
Here is another live model painting done in about 2.5 hours.



Have you ever wondered if Barista is an appropriate title for a male drink server? 
Is it only appropriate for coffee preparation or other drinks?

Here's what my research uncovered: 

The word barista is of Italian origin, and in Italian, a barista is a male or female "bartender", who typically works behind a counter, serving both hot drinks (such as espresso), and cold alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, not a coffee-maker specifically.
