Not Just For Shakespeare-KEMOSABE Flavored Decaf Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 5/25/2016

Many years ago when I was in college I could recite almost any line from the many Shakespeare plays we studied. As a result of my love for Shakespeare, and my reputation of spending many hours in the library studying, my friends gave me the nickname, “Shakespeare.” Today my co-workers at the San Francisco public library continue to call me “Shakespeare” for my sought after knowledge of the subject but my overall love for books.

“Hey, Shakespeare, that coffee you have smells delicious,” my colleague Sandy stated to me as I entered the library lounge holding a container of coffee. Is that hazelnut coffee?” he asked.

“To be exact, Sandy, it’s Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut flavored decaf coffee.”

“Of course it is, Shakespeare. I would not have expected any less of a detailed answer than that from you,” Sandy sarcastically replied. “You say it’s flavored decaf coffee?”

“Yeah, it’s flavored decaf coffee,” I repeated after I had taken a sip from the container of flavored decaf coffee. “I stopped drinking caffeine coffee about six weeks ago because I found it was giving me the jitters. Not only have my jitters gone away but by discovering Kemosabe coffee, which is 99.9 % caffeine free, I also have been introduced to six great new Kemosabe gourmet flavors-mocha, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate hazelnut, chocolate irish cream, French vanilla and my favorite, crème butterscotch.”

“Humm, I bet the crème butterscotch tastes delicious.”

“It does, Sandy, and I bet after you drink a few sips of it, it will remind you of going to your grandmother’s house when you were a little boy and eating some of the butterscotch candies she most likely had in her candy dish.”

“How did you know my grandmother had butterscotch candies in her candy dish?”

“I guess that why they call me Shakespeare. I know everything because I read a lot,” I jokingly stated to Sandy. “No, actually, I think every grandmother in America back in the 50’s and 60’s had a candy dish filled with butterscotch candies.”

“Your smart, Shakespeare.”

“Smart enough to introduce you to Kemosabe flavored decaf coffee.”
