The Coffee Wars


Here’s an e-mail about my coffee column:

I agree in principle that coffee, like anything else, should be traded in a free market. If Vietnam grows coffee, great. Of course, their coffee tastes like two week old musky sweat socks, but no one said I had to drink the stuff. Let Folgers or Maxwell House buy all the Viet coffee they want, that way I can get cheap beans for my relatives. I, for one, will stick to fine Arabic coffee with a touch of cream (none of that candy, whipped cream or other junk in my coffee either, just fine, home ground coffee for me).”
