Me: I wish you knew how to make coffee.Well, of course. I'm amazed I didn't see that about myself before this enlightening exchange.
The Kid (with a sneer): I can make coffee.
Me: Oh, yeah? How?
TK: You pour the water in the thing, and then you measure out the coffee, and then you turn on the machine.
Me: How do you measure out the coffee and water?
TK: You know, it's a ratio. It's what's on the coffee bag.
Me: I never go by what's on the bag.
TK: That's 'cause you're a Commie.

I snorted when I read that. Coffee fruit? C'mon, that's some kinda gimmick, yeah?
No. In fact, it's, like, totes for realz.
I was astonished, and chagrined, to learn that what I'd believed to be properly labeled a coffee bean is actually a coffee seed, and that it's nestled inside the actual fruit of a coffee plant. The seed's home resembles a rather largish cherry and it's of this berry that this Bai drink was made.
Well, slap my ass and call me Sally.
That needful nectar, that exhilarating elixir, that divine drink, made of seeds and not beans. How do ye friggin' do?
Did y'all know about that???
