The Washington Post has found us out. We Americans are Philistines and slobs, utterly lacking in refinement.
Roberto A. Ferdman exposes the ugly truth and reports that:
America might fancy itself a nation of high-end coffee drinkers. But just the opposite is true: People in this country, on the whole, are actually drinking worse coffee today than they have in the past. And the reason appears to be that they value cheapness over quality — and convenience over everything.
The Post has found an “expert” who:
...likens the coffee landscape to the one that has taken shape in the beer world, where craft breweries are all the rage, but Bud Light accounts for one in every five beers sold.
Can we possibly go on?
