>>Geisha Coffee<<

I don’t know if I’m disturbed, surprised or intrigued by this. As much as I consider myself as ardent coffee drinker and understand the psychology behind selling luxury goods( I mean Starbucks has always targeted that sort of audience anyways), I can’t help but cringe at the mention of a geisha with coffee. Take it from someone who has actually read Memoirs of a Geisha( yes I know that’s fiction but still {side note that is a good book by the way, it really opens your eyes to a new world}), selling a cup of coffee and marketing it like a geisha does not really seem to go hand in hand. But then again what do I know, I often willingly fork over more than $4 for a latte at Starbucks.
