just procrastinating

There was a hand written sign at Starbucks this morning with the following blurb about the Coffee of the Week, Ethiopian Sidamo:
"Fleeting and gentle floral scents waft from this sparkling coffee. Its acidity is crisp with a lemon-like tartness and a complex fruitiness."
And here was their recommended food pairing:
The key flavor to set off Ethiopia Sidamo's charm is lemon - lemon poppyseed muffins, lemon blueberry biscotti and lemon bars.
Come on, it's coffee, not wine. On a good day, maybe it tastes better than the swill you get at the office, but "fleeting and complex" it is not.
