How 'bout, "I got a pound of Jamaican Blue I just roasted for my Clover at home. Interested?" I don't know if it would work since I've never had luck with pickup lines, but it'd work on me if I were single.
Oh, I would have to say this is the best line someone tried to use on me. Happened about two months ago:
Super foxy Romanian girl walks up to the reg. She wants a capp for here (awesome), but doesn't know which espresso to choose (s.o. or the blend). Since its slow, I take over for the reg op, going into geeky detail about the differences. I finally convince her to try the s.o. 'spro (Ethiopian Ghimbi Wollega), and she gives me a shy little grin and says,
"Well, lets see how good you taste"
and gives me a wink.
... luckily, I brought a change of pants to work that day, but DAMN!
