For Coffee Achievers Only

Is that 24 hours?
Yesterday, I saw this van on the BQE. It raises a very important question: What constitutes a coffee emergency? I can think of a few possibilities:

  • Decaf coffee served surreptitiously
  • Instant coffee (beware of Latin American countries in which Nescafe is considered a luxury!)
  • Weak coffee (Polish has the word lura, sometimes rendered as "cat-lap," for weak tea or coffee)
  • Coffee that tastes bad (there was a chain in RI that I could swear used cigarette ash in their grounds)
  • No coffee.

But there must be more. In any case, it is reassuring to know that the men and women of Vassilaros are on the job.
