I blame chemtrails for the drought in Brazil. If people ever stop hating on Robusta, then Vietnam will be in luck because they are one of the largest producers of Robusta.

They'll probably just start buying coffee from Trader Joe's like everyone else does.

I put it through google translate:

"I say, good sir. If you perhaps choose not to order elaborate drinks, perhaps those containing Soy or other extravagant extras, and instead partake of a standard coffee the cost of such a beverage is within the typical average of a large breasted woman in your local coffee shop, which is (in fact) a Hess station."

It's not perfect, but it's the best I got.

Why all of the love for Hess? If anyone knows about a mixture of extracted oil and water, it would be ampm stores.

They've probably got enough inventory that they can easily afford to do this. Just ask their bean counters.

Worst case scenario, they roast slightly fewer beans for retail, and they have fewer bags at each store sitting on the shelves for months at a time. If that means fewer bags expiring, that's less waste.
