One cup to rule them all. No seriously. After coffee i rule everyone. (at Caribou Coffee)
Literally been waiting for this gif set
This is why I hate Starbucks.
And this is how people in customer service learn to hate people. Paul Rudd’s character is being a douche to someone who had no input over the naming of the sizes. He might as well be bitching to the janitor about it.
Every time this photoset circles around again, it bugs me even more.
Like Elizabeth Banks’ character says, it’s venti for 20 ounces, which is the amount of liquid in a large.
If you’re this kind of pedantic shitwit to service people because it makes you feel superior, you deserve to be treated like the douche you are.
F’real y’all you are not being cute just give it a fucking rest.
"it’s venti for 20 ounces,"
Unless it’s an iced, in which case it’s venti for 24 ounces. Which is also inconsistent with the previous two.
Also, tall is small at Starbucks. Tall is Large at Dunn Brothers. People come into my store and ask for a Tall and I have no idea what to give them.
And while the person behind the counter has no input on what they name the size, when he says “large” she knows what he means. She is the one who felt the need to correct him.
I AM the service person who has to deal with the aftermath of the bs brainwash of Starbucks. So I thank Pull Rudd’s character for pointing out the bs.
Fuck Starbucks and their pretentious size naming.
I know you need caffeine sometimes but don’t even fucking think about reaching for a RedBull or 5-Hour Energy. I will slap that shit out of your hand so quick you won’t know whatthefuck happened. Energy drinks are toxic and fucking expensive. Money doesn’t grow on trees; coffee does. Don’t waste your time in a fucking line and spend your hard earned cash on something you can make while you’re sleeping. Cold brewed coffee is also way less acidic, making this easier on your stomach. SO GRAB A CUP OF THIS SIMPLE SHIT AND SEIZE THE GODDAMN DAY.
COLD BREWED COFFEE
¾ cup ground coffee (whatever you got is fine)
3 ½ cups cold water
Put the coffee grounds in the bottom of a large container. If you like coffee with some fucking bite, add another ¼ cup of grounds. Slowly pour the water over the grounds and stir. Make sure all the grounds get wet because sometimes there are weird dry pockets and then you’re just wasting fucking coffee. Let this sit in the fridge (or on your counter if its not too fucking hot in your place) overnight or for at least 10 hours. In the morning, strain that shit using a mesh strainer. You know, the ones that look like a screen door. If you have the time, strain one more time through a paper coffee filter to get out the last of the grounds (or don’t and just deal with a couple rogue grounds in your drink). Serve over ice and with some almond milk if that’s your thing.
Makes about 3 ½ cups of coffee (triple this recipe and keep the extra in the fridge all week)
I wonder if this would taste good. Hmmmm.
This is how Caribou makes their cold press. Except we do it on a much larger scale. Like 4 gallons at a time. Many people also now add some white chocolate syrup to it, as it both sweetens and adds a creamy consistency.
And yes, while you CAN do this at home, and many people would save money if they did, people come to my store to buy this because we make it well. Also people simply dont have the time it takes to do this. Yes the process is overnight while you sleep, but the grinding, watering, and filtering can take some time. Time you dont always have. I know it takes time because I do it almost everyday. And I have to find the time inbetween other side work in the store and inbetween customers coming in and keeping us busy.
Things like work, school, and kids keep people busy. So they come to me for drinks like this. The convenience of it all. So they pay a little more. Also we use a higher grade coffee than Folgers.
Also this drink is great if you are watching calories, as opposed to an iced mocha or a blended beverage, the only calories/sugar are the ones you add. Coffee has zero calories by itself.
Also, there is no X in Espresso.
Im okay with this.
We got new coffee brewers at work a few weeks ago. We tend to name all our machines. This is what we named them.
Blister on the foot. This is what fresh hot coffee will do to you. Through a shoe and sock. And two hours later. Ouch.
Just because you get the trivia answer wrong, that doesn’t make it a “Trick Question.”
Seriously, this happens all the time in my store. People get the trivia wrong and when they hear the answer they say “Oh thats some kinda trick question.”
Yeah, the trick in the question is you have to read it.
"I want a medium medium-roast."
I just wanna reply-
“Just commit to something!!”
This piece was meant to show some sort of occupation in an unusual way. It was really supposed to be more of a traditional portrait, but I wanted to try something different. So I based it off of the works and style of Alphonse Mucha, specifically his work in advertising.
Why can’t all printed ads look like Mucha’s work?
I dig this.
Not to mention that people tend to forget the macchiato, not to mention thinking it’s the same as a cappucino.
Starbucks has a “Caramel Macchiato” which is, essentially, a glorified vanilla latte. It bears no resemblance to a real macchiato. Which is a problem when they walk into Caribou. Its like, would you go into McDonalds and order a Whopper?
