Before I got to work today, I decided to stop for a double tall pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks. As usual, the line was long. Dreadful Mondays lead to a packed Starbucks cafe full of random people in need of a caffeine fix to get their morning started. So the chick before me ordered a decaf nonfat mocha. I probably had my full animated face on and had a shocking stare screaming, Why?! inside my head. Like really, what's the point. Chick might as well have just ordered a kids cocoa! Its such a pet peeve of mine. Just as someone who would order an Extra Value meal from McD's and then order a Diet Coke to go along with it! Do you honestly think that getting a Diet Coke will make you less guilty of committing a junk food sin!? I seriously wanted to tell the chick unless you are ordering a caffeine beverage, please stop going to Starbucks! Really...especially on a busy rush hour Monday morning. There are far more people who are in need of caffeine in order to get through their work day. Obviously, you aren't suffering from that kind of problem. You must be one of those rare working individuals that love their career. Just do us all a favor and just skip Starbucks on your way to work. It's really not necessary for you until you decide to finally upgrade your drink of choice to an actual coffee or espresso drink. So, I'm patiently waiting for my name to be called. I remember to grab a straw and just stare aimlessly into nothing. But, the fact that the chick ordered a decaf drink became extremely bothersome. I then start questioning myself while staring at a bag of coffee beans
How the hell do you decaffeinate a coffee bean?!
Have you ever thought of that? Don't all coffee beans contain some sort of caffeine? I don't get it. Do the coffee bean factories tear up the beans and remove the caffeine from the beans individually? Do they reconstruct the bean afterwards to make it seem like it was untouched? OR are there seeds that are specifically 'defects' and get planted elsewhere such as ummm the reject coffee bean field? What's the deal?
