The outed blogger of bitterbarista.com is a barista no more for writing snarky comments about picky customers.

Matt Watson, 30, was fired from Seattle's All City Coffee, but said on his website he plans to make a coffee table book with his behind-the-counter musings.

A sampling of the so-called satirical comments include:

"My goal for the month is figure out how to pour a picture of a middle finger in latte art."

"If you've ever ordered an americano with steamed soy milk, you're pretty much on par with Hitler in my book."

"Every time someone orders an extra-hot-no-foam latte, an angel rapes a puppy."

Watson was outed as the author of the website by two coffee-loving bloggers who didn't find his posts very funny.

"There's a lot of anger in this blog, and while we love the well-worn barista cliche, it should be the stuff of mild parody, not an all-out assault on whomever walks through the door of your cafe," Sprudge.com said.
