(Coffee) Shop Talk

Welcome to the shop where I talk about things that go well with coffee, which is almost everything.

From London…

If the organisers of the 2012 Olympics games had a pound for each bilious word aimed at their new logo, they could stage the greatest event ever. The graffiti-style design, which cost £400,000 ($790,000), was unveiled on June 4th to widespread criticism. Several politicians promptly signed a parliamentary motion demanding that it be scrapped. The graffiti-style logo comes in four colours that apparently symbolise access, participation, stimulation and inspiration. “We don’t do bland,” explained Lord Coe, the organising committee’s chairman. “This is not a bland city.” More embarrassment followed when an animated version of the logo was withdrawn after reports of it triggering epileptic seizures.

I was going to make a clever comment in closing, but I think this post speaks for itself.
