Blueberry Flavored Goodness

Rob was on Time-Warner news the other night. Sadly there's no way for you to see the segment, short of having watched Time Warner news. Basically this poor not-so-swift junior reporter decided to do a story on the massive amount of coffeeshops on Chippewa. When she told Rob this, he was confused. So she clarified -- there are 5 coffeehouses: Starbucks, Spot, Coffee Culture, Tim Hortons and Dunkin' Donuts. Yes, Dunkin' Donuts is apparently a coffeehouse. Because Blueberry flavored coffee shows clear respect for true coffee drinkers (that ad makes me sick by the way). I once got a Vanilla iced latte at a Dunkin' Donuts -- I was desperate and late for work. It tasted like coconut milk lightly sprinkled with coffee-flavored slurpy.

So at any rate, this lovely news segment debated which was the best "coffeehouse" on Chippewa. They interviewed a woman in the completely empty Coffee Culture. Then they showed a Coffee Culture barista pushing a button on their gas-station style latte machine. Then they interviewed someone on the street saying that he only goes to coffeehouses based on the person working behind the counter (SKETCHY! Oh, wait that's how I started dating Rob). Then they showed MY HUSBAND brilliantly pouring a latte with a free-pour rosette.

Then they said Dunkin' Donuts was the best coffeehouse in downtown.

well, DD does have some kick ass coffee....i've heard that a town can support as many coffee shops as it can pizza places. prolly even more liquor stores.

I'm guessing that your town can support more liquor stores. At least more wine shops to be sure.

Ew, come on!
(Although, seriously, I'm surprised they didn't pick Starbucks)

YES, I am on twitter! Are you?

Also, the verification word I have to type for this comment to appear is "adbonil." Sounds like a medication for men who can't get it up.
