    It reminds me of the time my Dad (a more “traditional” coffee enthusiast) walked into Starbucks in Leicester Square, and, upon being asked what kind of coffee he’d like (cappuccino, latte, mocha etc.), politely enquired if they had any Nescafe.

    your Dad is my hero. He is not gay.

    best,
    Art.
