“We wanted a variety of concepts in fashion that reflects the coffee we prepare,” she said.



Note to everyone:
Stop overthinking it.

So maybe I am being a bit too literal but is she saying that the coffee they serve has tattoos and has been hit with the slightly unattractive stick?

I don't have the right words to make fun of this, but this story is pretty lame itself. Whoever spent that much time putting this story together needs something else to do! The quotes are mostly horrible, but at least it's entertaining.

I am glad you feel free to nonchalantly blog whenever you feel like it - thanks for coming back from time to time!

Imagine showing up at work only to have the boss say, "You'll have to change. We already have a caramel macchiato."

I stopped wearing socks, because the process of coordinating them with shoes became too taxing. I can not imagine the anguish of matching clothing to beverages...

Do people really talk like this?

Penelope Bianchi said...

that sounds like Sara Palin!

I am afraid I will not hire anyone with visible tattoos.

do you think this is "over-think"; or "no-think, just use words in a row"?

It is not over-thinking; it is just lame marketing.

Can you imagine what all these tattoos are going to look like when these young women are 60? I cringe at the "big hair" pictures of me from the '80's. They are going to have the same reaction but not so easily fixed. It won't be pretty.

ohhh, crap! Why did they do that?! This is NOT true to Stumptown...at least not the original Stumptown. I know they're trying to adapt to different markets, neighborhoods, cities, etc., but this is not the way to do it....I don't care what my barista wears, as long as the coffee makes it into the cup. I'm gonna ask the guys at the one down the street from my house what they think about this. I'm a big time Stump supporter, and this makes them look a little shallow...

Or start thinking about grammar?

I love that the shitty idea of "let's all wear crazy hats" is more like the uniform at FRIDAY's than what they think they actually look like.

One or two hats is interesting, everyone with a hat is just dorky. No way around it.

Wow NY Times....you're killing me with creativity.
