Voldemort thinks he can brew coffee
I am sad to post a news story that hits the specialty coffee industry right in the balls. Starbucks just bought Clover. What does that mean? It means that the most high tech way of brewing coffee, the most specialized brew method known to a commercial setting, has just been ransomed by the largest coffee thing out there. It's rumored that the Clover's will be exclusive to Starbucks, except for the shops that bought one before the acquisition. Thanks starbucks, you're still going to be a joke, now you'll just be a joke hogging all the clovers. I'm a little frustrated.
