Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Barista"

The meaning of "Barista" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does shady and barista mean?
A: barista = someone who makes coffee
shady = suspicious

Your sentence is a little strange. Usually when someone uses "shady" it is something like:

"That person is shady. Don't take your eyes off your wallet around him."
or
"He kept messing with something I couldn't see. He was acting shady."

Saying that you would choose to be shady is very strange. It's usually more of something you notice about someone else, not something you try to do.

The only way it might make sense is something like you are telling a friend about going to a coffee shop, and the barista treated you like she was suspicious of you. Your friend is similar to you, so she would have been suspicious of your friend as well. He would have been/seemed shady to her.

By the way, "shady" is very casual slang and shouldn't be used in formal conversation.
Q: What does "barista" mean?
