The other day when I visited the small Rocket Bean Roastery in Old Town Kristīne was preparing my coffee. She is very friendly and you can have nice chat with her about history of coffee, methods how to prepare coffee and Riga in general. While I was there people kept on coming in to ask questions about directions, Riga and the place itself and Kristīne was very helpful to answer all of them.
