I have a coffee name!

I heard a rather interesting story on NPR today. You can listen here. It's about coffee names. After a quick google search, I found the original blog entry here.

I have a coffee name. I admit it. My name isn't exactly the most common, and no one ever spells it right, that's for sure. So I usually give an alias. When we're in a big group of people going to eat at a restaurant, I will give the easiest person's name. This usually is my husband, Mike. Easy, extraordinarily common, and quick.

At Starbucks I don't even give a name anymore. They just know me as "iced coffee with sweetener". I don't even ask for it anymore. They have it ready by the time I get to the front of the line.

So do you have a coffee name?
