Coffee News

Every now and then, I like to gather up what’s going on with coffee in the news. It is always interesting and runs the gamut from the mundane to the outrageous.

--------------------------------
Coffee Study:

Coffee gets another thumbs up in a new study. Men with type 2 diabetes got the okay to continue drinking their favorite brew.

McDonald’s giving free coffee and paying tolls in Atlanta:

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, “The local McDonald’s association will pay the 50-cent toll for Ga. 400 drivers between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesday. Drivers also will be given a card for a free small hot McCafe coffee or medium iced McCafe coffee.” McDonald’s, please don’t forget about the city that never sleeps.

Crime Does Not Pay:

“A Portsmouth, N.H., man was given a suspended 60-day jail sentence for stealing an $8.29 bag of coffee — and he's been banned from all the Dunkin' Donuts in town.” This man is apparently a real Dunkin’ Donuts coffee fan.

More coffee crime:

“A man bought a to-go cup of coffee at a Mesa Denny's before allegedly robbing the restaurant and fleeing on a bicycle, authorities said Monday.” Criminals do the strangest things.

Coffee Can Sometimes Make you a Millionaire:

“Gainesville’s Donald Grant bought a lottery ticket with his morning cappuccino, and now he’s got what he called “a realm of possibilities.” “The retired cashier plans to use the money for a new pair of glasses and dental work.” Do you think he’ll have any money leftover?

Starbucks has the last word in “Tip-Gate”

“San Diego County Superior Court Judge Patricia Cowett ruled in favor of the baristas last year after a bench trial and awarded $86 million in restitution plus about $20 million in interest.”

“An appeals court reversed the ruling Tuesday, saying that the original decision was improperly based and that supervisors at the nation's largest coffee-shop chain "essentially perform the same job as baristas."
