Coffee! Oooh does it get people’s panties in a bunch! Everyone has strong opinions about where you get it, how much it costs and it’s ramifications for society at large.
Beer, another popular beverage for adults, hardly creates the same kind of political passion as the java juice does.
Why don’t we ask if the hops is “free trade” or not? Are we too drunk to care or does the caffeine jack us up?
On today’s show were talking to writer Mike Doyle, an ex-New Yorker who now calls Chicago home.
His muckracking blog Chicago Carless stirs up trouble on the local scene, and last month he sparked a flame war when he wrote about the rising cost of a cup of coffee for Gaper’s Block.
Mike shares with us the not-so-behind-the-scenes coffee drama involving Intelligentsia, his once favorite coffee shop, and Chicagoist, local group blog that he feels attacked him for his views.
Mike gives us insight into surviving a flame war, employees who engage in the flame war, what it takes for some people to fall in love and why gay men collect dates the way some kids collect marbles.
