    It came at my expense, but that made me crack up. Well-played, sir.

    I don't drink coffee at all in the summer, but I enjoy a cup or two during the winter months. It especially makes me feel better walking across campus in January.

    I usually buy folgers, but wifey's bought some Lavazza a couple of times. It's pretty good.

    And this fall, Starbucks will be selling The Dwarf's new novel, "For One More Day".


    Says Mitch:

    “Over the years, I've spent many hours myself reading in Starbucks. It's a fine environment to absorb and discuss a good book. And funding literacy efforts for our nation's youngest readers — a key part of this for me — helps ensure a future where books and writers remain integral to our culture.”

    Starbucks drink news:

    Anniversary Blend is returning very shortly.
    A new coffee called Pike Place Blend (named after the original Starbucks) will be introduced during the same promotion.

    Pumpkin Spice drinks will return at the end of August.
    Fall Phase II will feature Maple drinks in all North American and Canadian stores (last year they were only in New England stores).
    And Cinnamon Dolce will return in early January as a permanent addition to the menu (was a promotional drink last winter).

    To all you coffee drinkers, why do you drink it in the summer? Doesn't it make you hotter after drinking it?

    I understand drinking it in the morning, but I see people gulping it down in mid-afternoon when its 95 degrees out.

    I only buy Starbucks when I'm on the company dime... I used to have one a day and then I looked at my credit card bill and realized I was spending $100 a fucking month on coffee... That's just insane...

    Most of the staff at my paper drink it before our 3 p.m. daily budget meeting so we can stay awake through the hour-long, meaningless chatter in the meetings.

    AF, it doesn't bother you to buy more expensive products on the company's dime?

    My rule of thumb is that I wouldn't eat anywhere on the company's dime that I wouldn't pay for out of my own pocket.
