But, if there is ever an election between coffee and tea, I’d vote a straight ticket for coffee 11 months out of the year. Fittingly, my voting allegiances splinter in November.
Blame Starbucks. When they came out with the “London Fog” a few years ago, I was hooked. It made me feel urban. And European. And poetic. And warm.
Yep. Duped by the marketing mega-brand. So, I stuck it to the man when I figured out that I could order an Earl Grey with steamed milk, and get the same drink for $1.50 less.
Then I really stuck it to the man by discovering this November delight is more delightful (and organic) at The Coffee Loft, a local small-time joy that brands itself as a “European Style Coffee House.” (Drats! Duped again!) Adding to the experience: great music like Edward Sharpe & Bon Iver.
So, once again this November, I’m crossing the aisle (and the street) to shake hands with Tea!
