If you have been drinking coffee for more than a minute, you’ve probably seen the stuck-up snobbery that plays out in coffee shops around the country every day. It is almost never perpetrated by the actual coffee aficionado, but rather the person who wants you to think they’re a coffee aficionado. It usually looks something like this:

Annoying coffee customer: Do you do pour overs? What beans? Are they ethically sourced? Do you know the name of the farmer whose fields this coffee came from? What are your preferred immersion brew methods? I already drank a honey-processed Guatemalan that scored 90 earlier today, what do you suggest I follow that with? 

Barista, clearly confused and annoyed: Sir, this is a Dunkin’.

Now, don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with asking about a brew method or what beans are available at all the great local coffee shops that have sprung up during the third wave of coffee. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to drink good — nay, great — coffee. But when you make it about yourself, ask questions as loud as you can while ordering just to show you know something about coffee beyond “just black” or “two creamers, two sugars,” or put on an egocentric show at home after offering guests coffee … well, that’s annoying.  

But when YouTube funny guy JP Sears does it, it’s hilarious. Check out his latest skit below, and make sure you enjoy great coffee without being all douchey about it:
