Topic: "flavored" coffee (3 msgs / 61 lines)
1) From: Spencer W. Thomas
No, it's not what you think.
The other day I was sipping on my morning capp, made with Tom's Monkey 
Blend as I was sitting in a meeting.  One colleague said "That smells 
good.  Is it flavored?"
Minor rant: What's the world coming to, when coffee that has a nice 
aroma "must" be "flavored"? (And while I'm ranting, why is it that 
flavored coffee is called "gourmet coffee"!?!?)

Ah but Spencer, it IS flavored.  It has chocolate over tones, bright fruit
etc.  All of these flavors are completely dead by the time your associate
gets a cup of Stale Folgers.  If there are two classes of coffee for sale,
one is rotten stale and the other now needs a label, so Gourmet worked -
besides Marketing can get more money for stale junk if they tell you its
special.
