Since I’ve made it my goal to keep you updated on this year’s Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend coffee, I’m going to keep touting it as THE coffee of 2010. There are many great coffees out there, but none as divine as the Thanksgiving Blend.
I’m also in the process of proving to Starbucks that I can efficiently and creatively promote their Thanksgiving Blend better than anyone else currently on their ‘coffee’ team.
And I mean that. I’m confident in these words, behind this screen (and behind your screen-do you see me? Look closer. I’m watching you.)
2010’s Thanksgiving Blend is incredible, and I’ve described it many times over already. Herbal. Spicy. But I have yet to call it erotic. I haven’t called it sexy. (Read 2010: The Best Year to Die)
Let me explain. From the Starbuck’s Newsroom (access the Newsroom here) comes this description of this year’s Thanksgiving Blend: “Lush herbal accents of full-bodied Sumatra beans with the subtle spice and cocoa notes of Guatemalan beans from the famed coffee-growing region of Antigua.”
Is your heart, dear reader, racing?
Lush. Herbal accents. Full-bodied. Subtle. Spice and cocoa.
This is a sexual coffee, folks. This is romance before the fireplace. These words are passionate sighs in a dark bedroom. Wandering hands as the midnight bells toll. This is delirious action in a dark alleyway. These words extend far beyond coffee.
And just think, you can get all this in the morning for $1.80 (or roughly that).
Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend’s description is dripping with Eros. And I dare say the coffee tastes just as good. The Thanksgiving Blend is tempting. Is a seductress. (I describe these things in a feminine manner because I am, suffice it to say, masculine. So, if you’re a female, just invert the loaded feminine references to be masculine, if that’s your cup of tea. I assure you, it works both ways.)
When you sip the Thanksgiving Blend, you are tasting Cleopatra (or Antony). You are sipping an Egyptian goddess (or her brother). Or Aphrodite, the goddess of love, beauty, and sexual rapture (and this surpasses the gender binary [read about Aphrodite here].
