Have I told you the one about my friend’s first visit to Starbucks? It was also his last. He’s a good ol’ country boy. Runs a little equine therapy organization, horse riding for handicapped kids. Sweet, simple guy. His wife got him to brush the mud off his boots and go to the mall for a Starbucks. He took one sip of his coffee and went back up to the counter to tell the barista there was something wrong with it. He was given a second cup. It tasted the same. He put it in the trash, waited for his wife to finish her coffee and then went home and fired up the percolator. Some people just don’t have the time to acquire a taste for dark roast.
Espresso can take even longer to love. But once you’ve put that effort in, there’s no going back. That same kind of learning curve works with coffee and especially espresso flavored ejuice. Barista from 503 Eliquid is a dark, full-bodied vape. Vapes.com says, “Barista is a cappuccino inspired e-liquid with bold rich espresso flavors and a hint of cream. Non-caffeinated.”
The Numbers As Tested
Nicotine Level 5 MG
PG/VG Ratio 55/45
Barista opens with a rich, dark espresso flavor with just a hint of cream and a whisper of sweetness. On the exhale there’s just a little smoothness, the cream. The vapor is deceitfully creamy and the throat hit is in the medium range. The aroma is full-bodied and rich, with something a little like essence of cigar.
I’ve been vaping Barista for a couple of days, and the longer I vaped it the more I liked it. It’s a dark flavor with just enough sweetness to smooth it out. If you have never tried an espresso ejuice, Barista may be on the strong side for you. But if you’ve acquired a taste for dark roast coffee flavored ejuice, then Barista should be added to your list.

I vaped Barista for two days in a SMOK TFV4 tank on a Kangertech KBOX 200. Vapes.com provided the bottle of Barista I sampled for the purpose of this review.
