I curse you, Starbucks!

Normally, we buy House Blend. Lots of it. Because coffee is pretty much my beverage of choice. After all, a study out this summer showed that drinking five cups of coffee a day could reverse memory problems seen in Alzheimer's disease. Okay, so the study subjects were mice. But I can use all the memory I can get. And my dad had Alzheimer's.

But the last time I was at the store I decided to get some Breakfast Blend. It wasn't until I opened it up that I saw the key words on the package. "Half-caffeinated." I didn't even know they made Breakfast Blend in that version.

What kind of crazy person wants half the caffeine? Especially in the morning, when you are trying to be awake. Either you want caffeine or you don't. It's like smoking a "light" cigarette. Or reduced calorie beer. You've got to make a choice and stick with it.

And my choice? Since coffee is so expensive, I'm drinking the coffee. Reluctantly.
