When Coffee Tastes Are Too Well Grounded

, , , , | Right | May 10, 2010

Customer: “Where’s your normal coffee?”

Me: “What?”

Customer: “I just want a bag of normal coffee, not flavored. Where’s your normal coffee?”

Me: “Oh, all of the coffees on the left side of the shelf are unflavored.”

Customer: “No, they’re all flavored.  They all say different flavors, like  ‘Ethiopia’.”

Me: “No, those aren’t flavors. All the ones with a country name are just normal, black coffees like you want. The country name is where the coffee was grown.”

Customer: “What! There’s no such country as Ethiopia!”

Me: “Well, it’s very far away, in Africa.”

Customer: “If you say so. So the ones with country names aren’t flavored?”

Me: “Nope.”

Customer: “Fine. I’ll take the stuff from France.”

Me: “Coffee doesn’t grow in France…”

Customer: “Yeah, that French Vanilla.”
