n. The word broista is derived from the Italian word barista which can be defined as a professional who is highly skilled in coffee preparation, with a comprehensive understanding of coffee, coffee blends, espresso, coffee equipment, maintenance, latte art, whipped cream, etc.
Since most Starbucks employees are female, barista is assumed to be feminine in nature. Thus Broista is derived to describe the rare male employee.
