regional coffee culture, part liii

"i don't know how to feel about coffee shops. when a place has too many, it makes me think no work is getting done. but one coffee shop per town is agreeable, two if you want to prevent monopolies. anything else would be uncivilized."

asheville as a coffee haven? and i have no idea what to make of the above comment whatsoever.

she doesn't know how to feel about coffee shops? but she appears to pratically live in them, ordering her iced-coconut-lattes or whatever (what's that shiver running down my back?)

i suppose her mention of this as a favorite drink pretty much tells us how much credence we should lend her views? but she means well i'm sure; will someone reading this blog send this woman some real coffee?

long-time readers know how i feel about coffee shops. i think we need more independent, high-quality roaster-retailers. everywhere.

or to paraphrase fergie: "we don't know what saturation would look like. . ." end of story.
