Pretty little liars' Lucy Hale learning at the Academy

Pretty little liars' Lucy Hale learning at the Academy

Lucy has barista skills! She was running a one-person bar; dialing-in a grinder, getting nice espresso extractions and pouring rosettas in an afternoon. Anyone looking for a new barista should hire her fast before she starts her next show! :) ...More importantly, Lucy cares about coffee, extending a willingness to pay attention to all the details which made her very coachable and makes her a good barista!
