You Can’t Beat Zero-KEMOSABE 100 % Gluten Free Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 6/5/2016

“Monica, I have absolutely no idea what to get your father for Father’s Day,” I stated to my daughter moments after she entered the family room, where I was watching Ellen. “He doesn’t need a thing. He has every tool you could imagine and he has so many polo shirts some of which have never been worn” “Perhaps a tie?”

“No, that’s boring. I want to get him something he will enjoy.”

“How about a weekend away?”

My reflex reaction was, “That’s a wonderful idea,” but after thinking about it for a few seconds I added, “but that’s too expensive.

“I got it!” Monica declared with interest. “Remember about two weeks ago when Dad was telling us about a chocolate cinnamon single serve coffee packet his friend at work gave him. Remember how he specifically ended the conversation when he said, ‘You can’t beat zero’”, referring to the fact that the coffee was 100 % gluten free coffee.

“I remember. He talked about it for a good three minutes because he finally found a gluten free coffee that tasted delicious.”

“Do you remember the name, Mom?”

“Let me think for a moment.”

For the next minute or so the room feel silent as Monica and I thought about the name. Suddenly Monica snapped her fingers and announced, “Kemosabe! It’s Kemosabe gourmet flavored coffee.”

“That’s it, Monica,” I enthusiastically stated. “Oh he’ll be so surprised,” I wholeheartedly added. “Well now Monica, now that I know what I’m getting your father for Father’s Day what are you getting him?

“I already got it.”

“What did you get him?”

“A box of Kemosabe chocolate cinnamon gluten free coffee!”

“You little stinker!” I said, lovely throwing the magazine I had in my lap in Monica’s direction. “You knew all the time the name of the gluten free coffee was Kemosabe and you hoaxed me on.”
