coffee: hurry up and wait

I know this is sort of a Generation X and New Coffee Generation blasphemy, but isn’t it a bit weird that we have an entire industry devoted–mostly–to selling brewed coffee? Not that I don’t partake as much as the next...

Co-workers and I were trying out a new Starbucks the other day, one that could potentially be “on the way” from the metro to the office. Recently Starbucks has been running this My Starbucks promotion, they finally put up what...
