A coffee gambit
The last time I looked, every brand of coffee on the grocer's shelf had
this blurb- "100% Aribaca Bean."
Yesterday I picked up a can of Food Lion's finest because, in
case you haven't noticed, coffee prices are through the el-roofo.
The blurb on the can was "100%
Columbian Beans." Well, I don't want no stinking regular
coffee, I want Aribaca, so I put it back and ... wtf? Every - I
mean EVERY brand of coffee said "100% Columbian." Not one had the word Aribaca printed anywhere on the
label. Fortunately I am no coffee snob, so I bought the Food
Lion for $8.95. But what gives with that?
That aside, the thought struck me that coffee is a terrific hedge
against a possibly/probably coming black market economy. The
people I know who are addicted to coffee think nothing of spending $5
for a cup of Starbucks; what would they pay for a pound of Food
Lion? You're welcome.
