I would hate to go in there and find that Strong was a brand name.
It’s not a brand name. It’s a way of life. Their Dark Roast Sumatran is addictive. I’ve hooked friends around the world on it. I can’t visit without a few pounds of it in my suitcase.
Meanwhile, my simple desire to grab a bag of Whole Bean coffee at my Safeway was thwarted by management’s decisions to

- Downplay the typography of the “ground”/“whole bean” on the packaging-- so that the process of “just grabbing a bag” becomes a matter of carefully perusing the shelves and reading each label. Ugh.
In that case consider this an invitation, although coffee is already too much a part of my life. Some days I look like this:
“Strong” Coffee sounds to me like some sort of euphemism for coffee with booze in it.
