Ideally, the Coca-Cola Company said, the kiosks will be run by women.


O_o

Oh, wait. If we read the actual press release from Coca-Cola...


Women and entrepreneurs from local communities will be recruited to operate each EKOCENTER, creating new opportunities for employment in the communities where we install and operate EKOCENTER. Entrepreneurs selected to operate the EKOCENTERs will be given business skills training similar to that provided by Coca-Cola's 5by20 program, an initiative designed to economically empower 5 million women entrepreneurs across Coca-Cola's value chain by 2020.


That makes a little more sense. Way to summarize, Mr. NY Times Article Guy.

Starbucks coffee sucks, but a cup of coffee there most certainly isn't $5. I cup of sugared dairy with burnt coffee flavor added maybe, but not regular ass coffee.

I beg to differ.  I bought one of my employees a cup of coffee last week (some fancy crap that she drinks) and the total came to $5.35

That's because it wasn't a cup of coffee.

The more you know...

Yeah, no kidding.  That's exactly what CPennypacker meant by "cup of sugared dairy with burnt coffee flavor added."
