Coffee? Ok, We’ll Try It
Posted by evankessler on September 29, 2009
Today millions upon millions of people worldwide ditched their morning glass of milk and vitamin tablets that they reserve for their daily AM kick in the pants, instead opting for that rare beverage delicacy often referred to as a “cuppa joe.” Today is National Coffee day and people are celebrating by ordering all forms of the strange, hot drink brewed from beans harvested in lands as near as Colombia and as distant as the Isle of Java, hoping it can provide the same pick-me-up as their normal, staid regimen.
There’s no definitive evidence that suggests the caffeinated concoction will become an everyday staple of the public’s consumption, but business upstarts such as Dunkin’ Donuts and the little known “Starbucks” are banking on it by offering a vast array of “Café lattes” and “au laits” (whatever that means) in the hopes that by offering them every day they’ll soon become the best part of waking up.
While we wish those companies good luck on this National Coffee Day, we politely say, “No thanks.” We can’t see ourselves straying from our morning glass of milk. This message is not in any way brought to you by the Dairy Farmers of America.
