Have you watched Amazon Prime Video’s series (a monthly subscription is cheaper than Netflix), The Boys? It’s a parody on the superhero genre where the superheroes know they’re better than normal people and thus know how to abuse their powers. We all like superhero movies (when done right) but think about those storylines where some government agency is concerned about these overpowered individuals and who will stop them when they go rogue or when someone points out how they aren’t thinking about the collateral damage they cause when doing their super hero stuff.
UK-based Sandwich Empire Pret a Manger (or simply Pret) has rolled-out a new monthly coffee subscription service. This coffee subscription, from a sandwich shop, allows members to get cups of coffee everyday (capped at a certain number per day) by just paying an upfront amount once every month. American Sandwich shop, Panera bread, also came up with something like this only difference was that it was rolled out before the pandemic we are currently going through. Heck, now even Leon (healthy food shop also based in the UK) has also rolled out a coffee subscription service – reportedly even cheaper than Pret’s.
I’m an Apple Fanboy, so much so that I wrote a post about it on this here blog. I’m such a fanboy that I actually do watch the Apple TV+ series such as The Morning Show, Mythic Quest, Servant, and now Ted Lasso. Google Ted Lasso and you’ll see a bunch of positive reviews about it which it rightfully deserves – it’s fun to watch and beautifully shot. My favorite episode so far has been Episode 3 “Trent Crimm: The Independent”. There is not an ounce of coffee mentioned in this episode (though there is a scene with massively spicy Indian Food), but somehow, I’ll still write about it in a coffee blog.
Brewing coffee manually vs brewing coffee by pushing a button, which camp are you on? I am firmly on the manual brew camp as of the moment, but like the turnout of my poll in my IG account @shareyourkape, I see about a 14% value in having an automatic brewer.
I noticed something when I re-posted (and boosted) the second part of my “Instant Coffee, Is It Kape?” series on Facebook: there were still some comments encouraging commercial Instant Coffee (yes, some even pushed this popular brand). If you’ve read that piece, I put some effort to try and show how commercial Instant Coffee can be detrimental for the coffee farmers and even the environment, yet people still encourage drinking commercial Instant Coffee in the comments for that post. Look, if you want to drink Instant Coffee then fine – I just want you to know the possible consequences for exclusively drinking commercial Instant Coffee.
