When it comes to freelance writing, few things are as important as coffee. Second on that list is coffee places. Put the two together, and you have a recipe for some power freelancing.
So, it is big news when one of the most ubiquitous coffee shops on the planet introduces a new drink.
Wait. Scratch that.
It is big news when the biggest coffee shop in the world introduces a new drink that is palatable and does not involve the word “frappacino,” which as all serious freelancers know, is Latin for blech!
One sip of anything remotely frappacinoed, and a whole day of freelance writing can be flushed down the drain in the ensuing search for something, anything, that will take that taste and its memory away forever.
Starbucks Introduces New Drink – And You Might Actually Want to Drink It!
Let’s be fair. Starbucks has plenty of coffee variations that are good. If you are new to freelance writing, you might also be new to coffee, although that isn’t always the case. If so, you might have confused various seasonal varieties such as Pumpkin Spice Latte, Gingerbread Latte, and Peppermint Latte, as “new,” when, in fact, these drinks show up every holiday season. Last year’s Salted Carmel Latte was quite good, if overly decadent and sweet, but it failed to arrive this year.
The Starbucks Blog is reporting, there will be a new latte to wet your taste buds with while writing in the cozy confines of your local Starbucks. Of course, economics, and weight management, demand that the freelancer drink primarily regular coffees and not calorie infused milk add-on versions of espresso, but, for that bright sunny day when everything seems just a little bit happier, more productive, and just plain better, a more exotic drink can be in order.
This spring, that alternate drink choice may include (Bum, bum, bum-bum!) Dark Cherry Mocha!
Now, I know what you are thinking. You can always ask the barista to put whatever combination of syrups you want into your java, but the whole point of Starbucks is complete consistency. If you liked it at the downtown Starbucks, you should like it at the Cherry Creek Starbucks too. This isn’t always the case if you have your barista go all rogue on your drinks.
But, with a corporate mandated recipe thoroughly tested across numerous test markets, you can be ensured of an unsurprising meeting with your caffeinated beverage to start (or continue) your freelance writing day.
