Real Quick: What Are Your Opinions On Decaf Coffee?

by Sally Tamarkin

Death before decaf?

Coffee is the best thing about my morning and decaf is the best thing about my afternoon.

Coffee is the best thing about my morning and decaf is the best thing about my afternoon.

I love coffee's flavor. I like the experience of drinking coffee. I enjoy its aroma, whether it's a steaming cup of Starbucks or a bag of freshly ground beans in my backpack. (Please withhold your Starbucks criticism. I get it.) I consider a used filter with a pile of sodden grounds an air freshener for my trash.

That's right — I will seek out the version of coffee that has gone through a multistep industrial process that extracts the ingredient it's known for, along with its signature "coffee" flavor, before that flavor is reinjected into the now-decaffeinated beans so that I can enjoy a just-coffeelike-enough version of coffee.

Look, I’ve heard the arguments against decaf — and some are better than others, IMO.

Look, I’ve heard the arguments against decaf — and some are better than others, IMO.

Here are the big four (but please let me know in the comments if you have another anti-decaf argument that you can substantiate).

1. The only point of coffee is caffeine.
If coffee is merely a caffeine delivery system that you tolerate because you need that sweet, sweet energy, then decaf doesn't make sense to you. Got it. In this case, I respect the fact that you don't drink it. But this doesn't support the argument that no one should drink it.

2. Decaf doesn't taste as good.
If you're telling me you can taste when coffee has been decaffeinated, please invite me to the independent coffee shop you own because you obviously have spent a chunk of your life developing your coffee palate. If you're not a bona fide coffee connoisseur, but you're saying you can taste the difference, I'm going to need to you prove that with a double-blind taste test.

3. [Strong opinion that decaf is inferior, but you can't articulate why.]
I respect your moxie and your commitment, but ultimately this isn't a defensible position.

4. Decaffeinating coffee is expensive and resource intensive and is therefore wasteful.
This is probably the only valid argument against decaf coffee. But, tbh, I have a feeling it's only deployed by people who have A Thing against decaf and are reverse engineering reasons why. That said, if you can prove that that’s definitely not you, I will reconsider.

So. Decaffeinated coffee: unfairly maligned or actually very fairly and understandably maligned? Let's see who's right.

"I used to work in a local coffee shop. I’m really clumsy, so doing little things like dropping cutlery or spilling a little bit of a hot drink on the table is normal and I just laugh it off. One really busy Saturday I managed to spill hot tea on this woman’s leg. I apologised and she said it was OK and I continued on with my work.

"About 10 minutes later she called me over to complain that ‘one of your co-workers just spilt tea on me’ and pointed at another girl, really blaming her and wanting her to get into trouble. I had to deal with the whole complaint with her thinking it was another girl, and even when my manager came out I didn’t admit it was me.

"It wasn’t till the customer left and I felt so bad that I admitted my mistake."

"I was waitressing at an event and when I was stacking plates onto my hand, some salmon skin fell and slid down one of the guests' back. She was wearing a backless dress. I pretended not to notice and walked away while she squealed."

"I was spraying down the tables during a busy shift and my spray bottle wasn't working properly. I began to try and fix it, pressing the pump vigorously until the liquid burst out dramatically all over my station.

"I started giggling to myself – blame the 12-hour shift tiredness setting in – when my colleague asked, 'What happened?' Just as the restaurant fell deadly silent, I shouted back, 'I just squirted everywhere!' The families looked fairly disgusted while tucking into their desserts."

"I was putting dirty dishes away at the pot wash station and dancing like a lunatic to the songs playing in the kitchen. As I headed back out into the busy Sunday dining room, I received a round of applause from diners. I'd left the kitchen door ajar and the whole restaurant had seen me and my pitiful twerk."

"I’m a chronic maker of bad puns. Usually customers think they’re cheesy and funny, but not always. Once, when a lady ordered a malbec, I said, 'I’ll have that mal-BACK to you in just a minute, ma’am!' Total silence. Not even a smile. It was soul-crushingly awkward."

"I was a waitress at a seafood restaurant and a guy asked for a large cup of melted butter for his crab. I lost my footing as I approached his table and the cup of extremely hot melted butter landed directly on his crotch.

"Needless to say, he was super pissed off, yelled at me, and asked for all of his food to be put in to-go boxes. Obviously he didn’t leave a tip because I practically burned his penis off."

"I once had a coworker spill a cup of water behind the bar. When he went to clean it up, he accidentally knocked a $250 bottle of red wine onto my white Converse. As he was mopping up that mess, he tipped over the mop bucket, spilling about five gallons of water onto the floor.

"There was water everywhere, at least three people slipped and fell, and since the drain was clogged, it took about 45 minutes to drain the inch of standing water."

"I worked at a restaurant that sold crawfish, and people would pile up huge trays of the shells. I was trying to balance two trays, tripped over an infant's car seat that a guest had placed on the floor, and spilled the tray of crawfish all over the infant. This was really spicy crawfish.

"The parents flipped out, took the infant to the ER, and came back the next day demanding the managers pay the bill."

"While working as a waitress at a sushi restaurant some girls in high school made a reservation and came in wearing their prom dresses with their hair and makeup done. I ended up spilling all six glasses of water all over the table, directly into this one girl's lap. Her phone, wallet, and dress were completely soaked. The humiliation still stings whenever I think about it."

"I backed into an RV in the parking lot of the restaurant I worked at. After apologising immensely to the RV owners I had to wait on their table."

"During the Sunday morning rush I ran outside to my car real quick to grab something. I came back in and went straight back to serving my tables. As I was power-walking to my tables, I wondered if someone had farted. It smelled so strong like poop that it almost made me gag. I got through all three of my tables’ drink orders and rushed to the back to get started, still wondering who’d shit their pants.

"I went to the computer to put the drink orders in and noticed everyone was kind of buzzing around as if something was up. I ignored it. Thirty seconds later a waitress ran in and yelled, 'SOMEONE STEPPED IN THE SHIT!!!!!'

"I looked down and there was green poop covering my left shoe and up my pant leg! I started yelling and looked behind me to see that there were poop tracks all the way through the restaurant where I’d stepped in a steaming pile of diarrhea shit. I hopped on one foot over to the drain where we dump the mop bucket and started spraying my foot off.

"I asked where the shit came from and NOBODY knew! It was literally in the middle of the dining room, a perfect pile. Everyone called me ‘shitkicker’ after that."

9 celebrities reveal their surprising fast food orders

by Molly Thompson

celeb fast food kim k

Although it may seem like every celebrity eats only greens and chef-prepared meals, there are a number of stars — from Selena Gomez to Kim Kardashian — who aren't afraid to indulge in fast food every once in a while.

In at least one way, celebs ARE just like us: they have their favorite fast food treats. We rounded some of our favorite celebrities and their favorite fast food indulgences.

Selena Gomez appreciates a good Happy Meal.

In a LOL-worthy Instagram video from 2016, Gomez eats a cheeseburger from McDonald’s while dead-panning to the camera that she also had a happy meal "last week."

The "Bad Liar" singer also had Jack in the Box tacos in lieu of a cake for her birthday in 2013, writing on Instagram: "My cake was ... Jack n the box tacos ... Yes."



Anna Kendrick has a passion for Doritos Locos Tacos.

In 2012, the "Pitch Perfect" actress took to Twitter to express her strong feelings for the snack. "Just tried Taco Bell's Doritos taco," she tweeted. "I can see why they sold 100 million of these already. This is no joke."

"It's a dirty thing that I love Taco Bell so much," she revealed on "Conan" the same year. "I cannot, cannot eat Taco Bell before midnight. It's like a reverse 'Gremlins' thing. It has to be under the cover of darkness in my car. I drive out of my way for the one with the drive-thru … and I'll just eat it in my car."



Chrissy Teigen prefers Shake Shack to In-N-Out.

It's a bold move to live in LA and prefer Shake Shack over In-N-Out Burger, but then again, Teigen is a bold person. Ever since she had her first-ever Shackburger in 2011 she fell "in love." Fast-forward five years and she was tweeting at the Shake Shack account asking them when their West Hollywood location would open (and inquiring whether she could attend a "soft open") a little early.

In a 2017 interview, she settled the matter once and for all, saying: "I'm gonna go ahead and say Shake Shack over In-N-Out."

Teigen also shares Anna Kendrick's love of Doritos Locos Tacos from Taco Bell.

"I REALLY love a Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco," she told Harper's Bazaar during a Taco Bell taste test (naturally). "They don't deliver well. They always come crushed up into a million pieces, but that's when you just put it in a bowl and you eat it fork and knife."
