Full Answer

The word barista is typically only applied to people who work in coffee houses where espresso-based drinks like lattes and cappuccinos are served. People who make drip coffee in traditional restaurants or diners usually do not have a special title, and those coffee-making people can be called by their traditional titles like server, chef or manager.
