GUANGZHOU – Pouring a fine layer of foam into a cup of espresso, Lan Liping deftly “drew” a tulip on top of the latte.

The scene at a Starbucks outlet in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, is no different from other coffee shops, except for the fact that this shop is staffed with hearing-impaired baristas like Lan.

Born in Fujian province, Lan sustained permanent partial hearing loss at the age of 5 after a fever.
