Finally: The Anti-Starbucks Coffee Menu

A UK department store puts up a “plain English” coffee board.

British department store Debenhams wants to put an end to “coffee confusion.” Unfortunately, for now, the menu is only a trial at the store’s location on Oxford Street in London.

Via the Debenhams press release:

Caffe latte is described as ‘really really milky coffee’, Cappuccino as ‘frothy coffee’ and Caffe mocha as ‘chocolate flavoured coffee’. Black coffee is ‘simple coffee, with or without milk’ with espresso shot labelled as ‘a shot of strong coffee’.
John Baker, Director of Food Services at Debenhams says: “We’re trialling a redesign of our coffee menu in Oxford Street so shoppers spend less time playing coffee Cluedo and more time enjoying their favourite drink.”

The Brits. Kicked our ass in classic rock. And now, coffee.
