Here’s How It Works-KEMOSABE Decaf Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 4/10/2016

It was the first day at my new job, executive assistant to Mr. Flowers (Logan), Director of Operations at Pinecrest Plumbing and Supply in Little Rock, Arkansas. After Logan and I had met for twenty minutes reviewing his daily routine, he asked me to get him a container of French vanilla decaf flavored coffee.

“Madison! Logan called out from his office in an authoritative tone. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” he announced. “This is the worst decaf flavored coffee I think I ever had,” he stated as I walked into his office.

“I’m sorry you don’t like it, Login. I got you what you asked for-a French vanilla flavored decaf coffee, so that’s what was available in the breakroom. A K-cup French vanilla,”

Without letting me finish, Login interrupted. “That’s the whole problem,” he stated. “In my opinion that K-Cup coffee is nothing more than diluted water with basically little if any flavoring in it. “I’m sorry, Madison,” Logan apologetically stated. “I should have been more clear. Here’s how it works,” he began by reaching down to open the bottom draw to his desk. “In my bottom right hand draw of my desk I have a fifty box of Kemosabe decaf flavored coffee. The box contains ten single serve packets of each of the Kemosabe decaf flavored coffee-mocha, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate hazelnut, chocolate Irish cream and French vanilla. So when I say that I would like a french vanilla decaf flavored coffee you can find the coffee packet in this box. So here is the French vanilla decaf flavored coffee packet for you to make a cup of coffee. Would you like one?”

“Yes, please.”

Ten minutes later, I returned to Logan’s office with two containers of Kemosabe French vanilla decaf flavored coffee. “This is the best French vanilla flavored coffee I think I ever had,” I stated to Logan as I entered his office and handed him his container of coffee.

“And you know what is the best thing about Kemosabe flavored coffee?”

“No. What?”

 “It’s 99.9 % caffeine free, so you wouldn’t get the jitters all day.”

“I guess I’ll be drinking a lot of Kemosabe,” I stated as I turned and began to walk out of Logan’s office, referring to the fact that he gave me the jitters, at least on day one, anyway.
