Tumblr Thread: Customers' Mythically Powerful Coffee Orders

The life of a barista is a weird one. When every customer you have is someone who hasn't had their first coffee of the day, there's no knowing what kind of people can lumber in. Some take on the challenge and become a barista that's the living definition of chaotic good. Others just stand in awe and watch a 46-year-old woman drink 8 Red Bulls worth of caffeine in a single swig.

This issue caused a lot of controversy when British builder Paul Hopkinson originally shared this video on Costa Coffee's Facebook page.  

Responses ranged from angry (and very British) to extremely pragmatic.  Costa coffee themselves also responded to point out that the larger cup has space at the top and if the smaller cup did too that would equal the difference in size AND that the larger cup has two shots of espresso as opposed to one.

As for the engineer's math, we're going to take his word for it and assume that he's solved the mystery of why both cups seem to hold about the same amount of liquid.

Walter's Coffee Roastery opened up in Instanbul about a year ago. It was a wonderful idea, presumably based off of this sequence from the TV series 'Breaking Bad':



Now they are bringing the chemical themed roastery and coffee shop to Brooklyn, New York by the end of this summer.  They plan to bring the same level of coffee chemistry and 'Breaking Bad' references that caused the internet to fall in love with them in the first place.

Since the dawn of sliced bread have we not seen such grand ingenious culinary innovation. Yes folks, in large thanks to Brandeis University professor Daniel Perlman, we're about to take a step into a world where you can sustain a legit caffeine buzz (like several cups worth) off a muffin.


During his interview with Eater, Perlman says, "This flour contains 2.5 percent caffeine by weight, so if you were to put 4 grams of this into, say, a breakfast muffin, it would be the equivalent of drinking a cup of coffee."


Hold the phone. Say what now? And yes, it gets better; this flour's derived from green coffee beans, and rich in major health benefits. The roasting process for these green coffee beans helps retain antioxidant chlorogenic acid, which scientists believe can significantly diminish your risk of heart disease and diabetes.


If you're someone who's susceptible to over self-medicating on that java fix, Perlman says not to worry too much. He explains, ""Unlike some bars that are loaded with chemically purified or synthesized caffeine, this is natural food source caffeine. I would expect it to be absorbed a little more gradually than the caffeine in a cup of coffee, so [it would offer] a more sustained release and longer-term stimulation than you get when you drink a cup or two of coffee."


Perlman additionally informed Eater his coffee flour is a "very user-friendly ingredient", meaning it's pleasingly easy to bake with. Put your hands together and give a warm round of applause my fellow novice bakers.

thousands of coffee cans wash ashore florida

Somewhere out there, a barge is missing some very important cargo.

This morning, thousands of cans of Cafe Bustelo coffee washed up on shore in Indiatlantic, Florida. If you happen to live near by, you may want to jump in your car and join other residents in looting beaches for cans and cases of precious, precious caffeine. The coffee suffered a long and tumultuous journey on the open ocean after it likely fell off a cargo ship headed for Puerto Rico, but the goods inside are reported to still be sealed and dry.


Look at those poor cans; they're suffering! Take them home.
Backlash of The Day: Was This Starbuck's Barista's Flirty Message on A Cup Inappropriate?

You gotta watch out for those Starbucks lovers.

Laura Roberts, a 19-year-old customer at Starbucks in London, received a rather flirty (and cheesy) message on her coffee cup from a male barista.

The unidentified employee scratched out the hot coffee warning and left this message: "Careful you're extremely hot" with an arrow and smily face.

Calm down, lover boy!

The thing is Roberts is engaged and her mom has Facebook—both big problems. Her mom posted a photo of the cup on the Sh*t London Facebook page.

The post received tons of backlash and angry comments, but Roberts is choosing to not identify the barista.

"It's my local Starbucks and he's lovely," she told MailOnline. "He always does it."

"That day I sent a picture of the cup to my mum, because she lives quite far away and she put the picture on Facebook."

Moral of the story: Keep mom off Facebook.

Censorship of The Day: London Coffee Shop Forced to Replace Brilliant Yet "Offensive" Sign

A coffee shop in London has been forced to remove a sign displaying the shop's name from outside its building.

But the shop's response was rather cheeky.

The coffee shop was rebranded more than a year ago from the more boring "Bermondsey Street Coffee."

Then the owners received this letter this month from the lawyers of the owners of the building.

Seeing as they had no real choice in the matter, they replaced the sign.

Here's the new sign.

Effective? Yes.

Just as funny? Nah.

First our sticks, and now our coffee beverages. There is no stopping the #selfie.

In her latest video, Megan takes viewers on a tour of a cafe that prints selfies on edible lattes. The cafe is called "CaFace," which is just almost too clever.

First the selfie...

And then it's time to destroy your face...

Never change, South Korea. Never change.

jang woo-seok KISS designer mouth coffee lid - 8557267712

Have you ever kissed a loved one and wished that hot coffee would come pouring out of their mouth and into yours?

Probably not. But one Korean designer wants to simulate that weird fantasy.



As Mashable writes:

Created by designer Jang Woo-Seok, the custom lid gives the illusion that you're drinking piping-hot coffee poured through the lips of another person. And who doesn't want that?

Woo-Seok thought up the design after noticing that existing coffee lids lacked flair of any kind. In an email with Mashable, Woo-Seok explained that while coffee can be obtained every day, you aren't always guaranteed a kiss. This lid aims to solve that problem.

"So I created it for my sexual desire. Just kidding," Woo-Seok added, aware of the design's peculiar nature.



That's not a very funny joke.



Woo-Seok describes it further on his Behance site:

Different from the other coffee lids which have a usual hole to put a straw or to drink directly, Take 'Kiss' Out looks like a human face. Therefore, a coffee drinker experiences a visually funny and emotionally different coffee-drinking when drinking.

Take-out coffee is a symbol of city culture and fashion.

Shape of a lip is a distinctive style, thereby the combination will be fun.





Yeesh. If you say so.
