Coffee places are constantly finding new ways to lure us inside for a cup of Joe. One of their commonly used tactics is to introduce coffee flavors that are available for only a limited amount of time. Often the newly introduced coffee flavors reflect the season at hand. For instance, during this time of the year, just about all of the places that sell a cup of coffee are promoting their limited time pumpkin lattes.Since its introduction this year, I have personally ordered two lattes induced with the pumpkin flavor. That is a lot, considering the fact that I am not much of a coffee drinker. So does that mean I am falling for the whole available for a limited time only thing? I guess to some extent I am. However, I must point out that I actually do have a thing for the pumpkin flavor.
Because of the fact that pumpkin lattes are hard to come by at any other time of the year, I do try to buy a couple while I still can. I do not feel as though I am simply buying one because it is constantly being advertised in front of me. Afterall, I am highly unlikely to be the one to buy the peppermint lattes come Christmas time.
For the remainder of this season, I will try to stop myself from buying another pumpkin latte. Why is that? Simply because of the amount of calories that are in one is not something that I can afford to have too often.
Square is the hot new kid at school, the Silicon Valley start-up most likely to be labeled "an upstart" or "disruptive." But I have to tell you, in the case of Square, the goofy jingoistic business lingo may be correct.
A little while ago I had an encounter with a K-Cup machine in a waiting room. It was pretty snazzy, I had to admit: it made me a delicious cup of coffee in just a few minutes, with no muss or fuss. Impressive! I began flirting with the idea of buying myself one. But I had to ask, how much do K-Cups really cost, versus making coffee "the regular way?"
According to this infographic by ILoveCoffee.jp, the #1 most coffee-drinking-est career is "Scientist/Lab Technician." I can see the sense in that: science is awesome, but on a day-to-day basis it is also often very boring. How much pipetting can you do before you fall asleep, the drone of the lab hood lulling you off to the Land of Nod? Better get some coffee, then!
