Quantcast

Shameless!

Ok so when we were out and about in Sydney the other day, this sign caught my eye (as those of you who know me would imagine it might…)


So I am there reading the sign in my jetlagged state wondering what on earth Obama has to do with this “salted coffee” craze. Well, nothing, in fact – he just happened to be on the cover of the Time magazine in which this article appeared. Shameless use of the President’s image, I say, shameless. Actually, a bit like this sign we saw in New York City last November, mere days after Obama’s election:


(Uh huh – I am sure more people bought the arugula because of the picture on the sign…)

Still, it made me look!

On closer inspection there’s a whole explanation of how the salt is whipped into the creamy foam and added to the coffee (click to enlarge) or check out the original article from Time here:


Hmmm… not so sure about this, though I guess if the salty taste works with chocolate, it might work with coffee… We didn’t try it out. Next time, maybe…

    at first glance, i thought the salted coffee sounded awful, but after reading the article, i am intrigued. after all, i do love other sweet/salty combos. sea salt caramels were my holiday obsession last year, and starbucks did indeed have a sea salt hot chocolate this winter that was yummy. i don't think it would work with plain black coffee, but perhaps with a sweeter, mocha type coffee. hmm . . . and of course, obama goes with everything, salty or sweet! :)

    Wayne thinks it sounds thoroughly disgusting. We really think you must try it and report back. :-)
