Latte, uber alles

Jeremy Lott's newest column demonstrates the domination of coffee in the Starbucks era. Jeremy lives in a teeny NW Washington State town which has two espresso stands and an espresso bookstore.

I have lived not too far away from where Jeremy lives and would like to point out how amazing this is. Lott-burg is a really small town, which lacks several things that I had readily available in my wee home town, so it's surprising that there are three places to buy fancy-shmancy coffees.

I don't drink coffee, though. On the rare occasions that I indulge, I drink tea. I'd be considered gauche at high tea with the Queen as I drink my tea castled (with milk and sugar).
