I am, over all, a satisfied customer. I do not pretend it is easy to work at your stores or, even, to make a decent cup of coffee. But if it is well known that a Starbucks cup will leak if the lid’s opening is aligned with the cup’s seam, then why isn’t this passed on to your baristas? Just asking.
[12:40 PM] Bob: Subject: I’m thinking…4 partsJamaicanBlueMountain…1 part French roast
[1:23 PM] Me: I’m thinking you wouldn’t know Jamaican Blue Mountain from motor oil….
[5:08 PM] Bob: Really… now where did that come from…I was in Jamaica…saw the Blue Mountains…listened to the locals as they toughted their coffee…rum and peanuts…I also spent a little time with motor oil…further more the ratio I discussed earlier offers the best of both worlds the sweet after taste of the Jamaican is cut short by the hearty acidic full flavor from the French roast…without the overbaring taste a naked roast gives…matter of fact…I believe the French went with such an obtrusive aroma and flavor…because of their continued failures over time to hold onto a place of world influence…there is no need for coffe to be that bold and acidic…that’s why there is expresso…The Italians did it right…double up for purpose…not a false claim of taste
[5:47 PM] Me: Really? Two hours bouncing aroundJ amaicain a jeep makes you an expert? In seat cushions, maybe. French roast is a dark roast. Dark roasts are the least acidic; light roasts, as in your precious Blue Mountain Turd, or whatever, are the most acidic. You should have paid more attention in chemistry class and less time falsifying time sheets at the Amoco. …. I bet the acidic taste you are experiencing is the mineral deposits in the coffee maker you never clean. Though with your palate, raped as it is by chilis and Pabst Blue Ribbon, who can say?
[5:53 PM] Me: I don’t think my remarks have emphasized this enough: You are a doofus. This is going S.T.B. (straight to blog).
[6:19 PM] Bob: So…your not a fan of Jamaican coffees…what about their steamed peanuts…
[6:34 PM] Me: I hate steamed peanuts. Boiled, too. But I’m fine with Jamaican coffee. Just don’t have call to drink much. Don’t know that I see it at Starbucks.
