A New Champion & A New Challenger
Don Francisco’s Plantation House Blend was able to edge out 2 time workplace champion Dunkin Donuts Original Blend coffee last week in a battle that seemed to be neck-a-neck until down to the final cup. This week, Don Francisco will defend his title against Godiva Breakfast Blend coffee. I am very unsure about this particular match-up because the Godiva blend is bringing something a little different to the table, that no previous coffee competitor has brought: “Subtle chocolate flavor notes.” I can only hope that my coworkers will accept this flavor addition in good spirit, and not see it an unfair advantage or disadvantage. In my defense, I didn’t realize the Godiva blend had chocolate flavor in it until after I made the purchase. So… This might end up being a comparison of sailboats to bowling balls, but either way, there will be a contest and there will be a winner.
