Is #coffeeshaming a thing? Because if it wasn’t, it is now.
This sign on an unknown sugar container in an unknown coffee shop (or perhaps restaurant, judging by the apparent menu with the customer in the background) is dripping with scorn, snootiness and a snobbish sense of superiority. Not bad for a three sentence pre-emptive scolding.
We haven’t been able to source the provenance of this sign yet, but the post has been spreading like wildfire on Tumblr, with over 30,000 notes since it was posted earlier this week.
If you’re thinking “wait - coffee has a natural sweetness?” You’re not alone. Tumblr users were equally taken aback by the airs put on by the sign.
I am PAYING for caffeine and the right to enjoy it any way I want I will cut it with sugar and mainline it right here don’t try me.
Although ‘natural sweetness’ for coffee is cutting it mighty fine. Like. It’s not sweet. Least. No coffee I’ve ever tasted has been sweet black.
