McDonald’s customer gets 3 years in prison for throwing hot coffee in drive-thru worker’s face.
An Ohio man was sentenced to three years in prison for throwing hot coffee at a McDonald’s drive-thru worker.
The incident occurred after the worker accidentally gave the man an extra cup of coffee with his order. The victim suffered first-degree burns after she insisted on seeing the customer’s receipt and he responded by throwing the coffee.
Joseph Deluca, 54, admitted to assaulting the McDonald’s employee and was sentenced to three years in prison, Newsweek reported.
He pleaded guilty to felonious assault, along with aggravated assault for an unrelated incident (for which he received 18 months to be served concurrently).
Authorities arrested Joseph Deluca in March for the Feb. 19 assault, which was caught on surveillance camera, Fox 8 reported.
According to the outlet, the female Mickey D’s staffer initially handed off the two cups in a cup holder to Deluca, before looking at the order screen and realizing the man had only ordered one cup of coffee.
Asking to see his receipt to verify the transaction, the 54-year-old man reportedly “laughed” and insisted he had indeed ordered two cups of coffee. The woman – who was working alone in her drive-thru station – continued to insist that she needed to see the bill, prompting an angry Deluca to step outside of his vehicle and toss the coffees in her face, before driving away.
The woman was rushed to the hospital to treat the first-degree burns she sustained on her neck and shoulder in the assault, Fox 8 reported.
Before Jarret Stopforth takes his first sip of coffee, he adds cream and sugar to mask the bitterness.
But then, he thought, why settle for a regular cup of joe? So the food scientist decided to reengineer coffee, brewing it without the bitterness — or the bean.
“I started thinking, we have to be able to break coffee down to its core components and look at how to optimize it,” he explains.
Stopforth, who has worked with other food brands such as Chobani, Kettle & Fire and Soylent, partnered with entrepreneur Andy Kleitsch to launch Atomo.
The pair turned a Seattle garage into a brewing lab and spent four months running green beans, roasted beans and brewed coffee through gas and liquid chromatography to separate and catalog more than 1,000 compounds in coffee to create a product that had the same color, aroma, flavor and mouthfeel as coffee.
“As we got deeper into the process, we learned more about the threats to the coffee world as a whole — threats to the environment from deforestation, global warming and [a devastating fungus called] rust, and we were even more committed to making a consistently great coffee that was also better for the environment,” Stopforth says.
The amount of land suitable for growing coffee is expected to shrink by an estimated 50% by 2050, according to a report by the International Center for Tropical Agriculture.
Coca-Cola’s Costa Coffee launches RTD beverage in the UK
After Coca-Cola bought Costa Coffee for $5.1 billion last year, it was expected that given Coke’s expertise, the next move for the brand would be to expand Costa’s ready-to-drink coffee across markets globally.
Now, almost a year later, that prediction is true.
The new line of canned coffee is spreading across Europe, and while the company hasn’t yet committed to bringing the product stateside, there’s potential for it in the U.S. market.
More companies have been moving into the coffee category because it is trendy and a money maker for brands.
Not only do Americans continue to rely on java for an early morning jolt, but companies have found that it is a lucrative market to get into as consumers increasingly search for more premium options.
Gourmet coffee now represents half of all consumption for the first time in history, according to research from the National Coffee Association.
美国国家咖啡协会(National coffee Association)的研究显示，极品咖啡有史以来首次占到总消费量的一半。
By choosing to enter the ready-to-drink category, Coca-Cola is combining its enormous global distribution system with the growing popularity of on-the-go gourmet coffee.
Consumers crave convenience and this easy, on-the-go canned coffee line could satisfy that. Mordor Intelligence reports that in 2018, the North American RTD coffee industry was valued at $2.5 billion and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.7% to about $2.65 billion by 2023.
However, this growth has come with fragmentation.
With demand for single-serve, ready-to-drink, premium and a whole host of other experimental coffees like butter coffee, probiotic and protein-infused CPG coffee products, growth in this industry is difficult to tap into.
More brands are launching ready-to-drink coffee, so Costa will have a fair share of competition. Nestlé purchased Starbucks’ retail products for $7.15 billion last May, which offers a variety of different RTD coffee beverages.
And previously, Nestlé acquired Chameleon Cold-Brew and a majority stake in Blue Bottle Coffee. But it’s not only Big Food taking advantage of this trend. More startups are also launching these ready-to-drink products.
Data from CB Insights shows that coffee startups were on pace to raise more than $1 billion by the end of 2018.
Do people go to Starbucks for good coffee?
I go to Starbucks to do work. I can rent a desk there for a few dollars an hour. I get a reasonable internet connection and for some reason, I can focus there. The coffee is not that great but I regard it as fee.
I believe the reason so many people enjoy it is because Starbuck’s espresso is a dark roast with a strong (dare I say bitter) flavor to which, when you add sweet and creamy ingredients to, you can still taste the coffee. That’s key. Starbuck’s coffee goes well with cream and sugar, if you’re into that. It’s strong and bold no matter what you do to it.
In my experience as a Barista I’ve tasted some beautiful, single origin coffee beans, medium roast, they had interesting and varied flavor profiles (sometimes “tea-like”) , and they were all delicious as is, black, but it (practically) ruined them if you add cream and sugar.
If someone likes a strong cup of coffee, to which they like to add cream and sugar to, they would typically complain about a light or a medium roast.
Ultimately, people like what they like, and they don’t really care why.
You need to broaden your interpretation of what the words ‘good coffee’ mean.
If you’re an Italian purist it means the quality of the bean, where it’s bought in from, how it’s pressed and then served into the cup.
But you (I’m taking leap here) live in NON-MEDITERRANEAN country. If you do. Here is what ‘good coffee’ means:
Finding a convenient ‘reason’ to sit, relax and do nothing with the people you love/care for.
So yes. Starbucks do do ‘good coffee’.

I had recently accumulated enough rewards points to obtain a coupon for a free popcorn.
Standing in the movie theatre ticket line on Saturday, I noticed just ahead of me, a father with his 2 small boys also waiting to buy their tickets for the Matinee Movie.
Knowing that movies can be quite expensive for families nowadays, I tapped the Dad on the shoulder and asked, ‘I have a coupon for free popcorn and don’t plan to use it, would you like it for one of your boys?’
He said, ‘Yeah, sure. That’s great! Thanks!’ and took the coupon.
A few minutes later, after they had purchased their tickets, one of his small sons who appeared to be about 9 or 10 years old, walked up to me and silently held out a shiny penny to show me.
I took it and said, ‘Wow that’s cool! It’s really shiny!’
He quietly replied, ‘It’s a 2011’. As I handed it back to him.
He pushed the penny towards me once again and quietly said, ‘You can keep it’.
Showing my gratitude, I replied, ‘Wow that’s awesome, thank you very much” and asked, ‘Where did you get it!’ and he said quite softly, ‘I found it in my Dad’s car’.
I said, ‘Oh that’s cool, thanks!
He smiled, quietly turned and walked back to his Dad who returned my smile with a knowing smile of his own.
It’s the small special moments like that that can make an ordinary day, special.
星图注册官网《Q3249-1383 》There is no shortage of delicious coffee creamers you can get out there. Seriously, whether you want your coffee to taste like a delicious candy bar, Easter candy, or breakfast cereal, you are covered my friend. And while Starbucks has been killing it with the coffee creamer game for a while, they recently announced a new creamer innovation that truly will rock your world.
Starbucks is adding non-dairy options to its existing line of Starbucks Creamers, the brand confirmed with Delish today. These creamers are made with a blend of almond milk and oat milk and much like their preexisting coffee creamers, come in flavors inspired by your favorite handcrafted Starbucks drinks.
These new creamers will come in two different flavors, with the first being Caramel Flavored Non-Dairy Creamer, which is inspired by Starbucks Caramel Macchiato. It’s made with notes of buttery caramel and hints of vanilla flavor for a drink that will make you feel so cozy. You can also find a new non-dairy Hazelnut Flavored Creamer, inspired by Starbucks’ Hazelnut Latte, which I will be adding to my coffee all autumn long.
Both creamers are set to hit grocery stores nationwide in August so you can start dreaming up your coffee creations now. (Psst: Some people have spotted them in stores already!)
This is just the latest in Starbucks’ foray into plant-based options. They recently rolled out coconut milk- and almond milk-based drinks nationally, as well as oat milk in select locations. I’ve personally been downing their new Cold Brew with Dark Cocoa Almond Milk Foam like a madwoman so all this alternative milk news has made me pretty psyched! It’s the little things.

What’s the smartest thing you’ve ever seen someone do?
When I was in the Gandhinagar office of TCS, a juice seller (20 something) at the cafeteria used this amazing hack for increasing his sales.
So, during the peak hours, he found it difficult to manage since he didn’t have any help on his counter. The employees would rush to him with their coupons for bournvita, cold coffee, mixed juice, shakes and everything else, all at once. With only two mixers and two human hands, he had his limitations and often the customer would have to wait for half an hour or more. He didn’t even have a refrigerator.
I would look at him for days and would feel pity at him. Then, a month later, I noticed a change at his counter. The customers were still aplenty but instead of half an hour, they were getting their orders in 10 minutes.
So what he did was, he had made an estimate of what kind of drinks most people have at his counter. He had decorated an entire row of plastic glasses with bournvita in it, waiting for the hot milk to be poured. Something similar was done for oreo shake and cold coffee too. So, he was saving time on tearing packets and peeling off fruits and spooning out bournvita and sugar into the glasses. By the time he juiced fruits for one order, he had already supplied 5 glasses of bournvita and so on. I also noticed that he had worked on his hand eye coordination and speed. He was mixing things fast and had replaced glasses with plastic glasses and cups. Instead of keeping it in the corner, he kept the trash bucket, near his feet. He stood at one place and did 5 different things.
He told me he never went to school after class 4th because he hated mathematics, but he so efficiently understood and applied the demand supply curve for his profit.

因此，更严格的讲，只有是同一个产地、同一个庄园或地块、同一时间采摘、同一批次处理加工的咖啡豆，才被成为“单一产地咖啡”，即Single Origin Coffee，因为品种相同，也常被称作“单品”。
你可以称他们SOE美式、SOE拿铁、SOE卡布奇诺、SOE Piccolo（短笛）、SOE 澳白，等。
