A Funny Thing About Descriptions on Bags of Coffee

Midnight Oil: Dark, acrid,
earthy with hints of copper,
and bold undertones

Echoes of greatness!
Beverage philosophy!
Listen close and hear

the authentic taste
of hand-picked beans: Fuel your
creativity.

    Have you ever had coffee actually taste like the description? Or wine? It’s the same thing with wine labels.

      Nope. Good call on the wine labels, too. English words for taste and smell are somewhat limited, I think. Or maybe its just that the label-makers like to see how far they can push the limits.
