Getting The Third Degree With KEMOSABE Gourmet Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 8/6/2015

“Excuse me, sir.” I politely stated, looking down over the wooden dividing panel that separated me from the student studying on the opposite side of our cubical. “You’re shaking the desk so hard that my coffee spilled.”  Startled by my demand, he hesitated for a moment then replied, “I’m sorry, but I’ll be here for the next five hours studying for my finals tomorrow and I need to erase a lot. There are other cubicles, so why don’t you move?” Surprised by his answer and his demand that I move, I reached down to my desk, grabbed my eraser and dropped it down on his book, firmly stating, “Well, if you’re going to be erasing that much you’re going to need a second eraser!”

A few minutes later I was settled at a cubical on the far side of the library. Prior to resuming my studying, I took a deep breath, cuddling the cup in both my hands and took a sip of my now half cup of Kemosabe chocolate cinnamon gourmet coffee. As I was enjoying its aroma and full body taste, I smiled as I read the tag line beneath the brand name, “Kemosabe.” For the first time I comprehended its true meaning, “Trusted Friend.” Boy, is that tag line ever true. This coffee has indeed been my “Trusted Friend” throughout college, graduate school and now my third degree-law school.
