Rep. Schweikert sees future career as Starbucks barista

Schweikert brewed up a beverage on his office’s personal coffee machine in a video posted by Arizona’s KPNX news anchor Brahm Resnik.

Schweikert bought the machine — which he joked is “a bipartisan coffee maker,” available for use by everyone, including the cleaning crew — early in his congressional career.

"I paid for it with my own personal money,” he said, adding, "Think of the benefit to the taxpayers: The staff is well-wired all day long."

Schweikert's office has a selection of syrup flavors for the coffee drinks, ranging from hazelnut to pumpkin spice, but the congressman identified Hershey's chocolate syrup as his "all-time favorite."
