Andrew Saur and Angel Sarkela-Saur paint with coffee, using it as a basis for watercolors. It's pretty cool stuff and definitely a medium that we can get behind. That's part of a self-portrait of Andrew there, which sort of reminds me of me before my caffeine [...]
That's right, Cafe Duran in Panama has created a 750 gallon cup of coffee.
This size will soon be available at your local 7-Eleven or QuikTrip for the low, low price of $1.29. Throw in an extra two bits and you could walk away with a donut, too.
Or...could this be the Non-Euclidean size the prophecies (or at least the previous post) foretold? Make peace with your gods.
Because sucking down one of these while in the car is highly inadvisable. Although they do offer three sizes just like a regular Starbucks. Instead of Tall, Grande and Venti, you can have your coffee either Eldritch, Chthonic, or the mack daddy Non-Euclidean. They also have a very Short version called a Gibbous, but you have to ask for that special now--it's no longer listed on the menu.

Well, if you know any Starbucks conspiracy believers, you might want to give them a nice hug before you tell them about this. Because the coffee equivalent of Skynet is going to start selling their stuff out of vending machines:
Unlike any other coffee vending experiences in the market, the Starbucks vending platform utilizes proprietary heat-on-demand technology, developed by PepsiCo, which will offer customers yet another convenient way to enjoy Starbucks on-the-go.
Hell, you can sell everything else out of vending machines: anything from iPods to acne medication. So why not?
Weren't we just talking about the concept model of something like this the other day? And here it is, but quit it with the concept versions. We want it.
How the "coffee rituals of today might evolve and fit into future lifestyles."
Personally, I have no problem with Starbucks. While I love me some indie coffee, I'm an equal opportunity coffee purchaser. "Oh, you have coffee? I love you. What was this place's name again? Who am I?"
Still, it's funny as shit to see an indie coffee's folks dressing up as zombie Starbucks employees. Absolutely brilliant. I have yet to see somebody take me up on my zombie Smurf idea, but this will do in a pinch.
