    Chile - Coffee with Legs

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Probably something more for the boys?

    "No longer do the businessmen want their coffee served with sugar - they want it with legs."

    Strange concept, although the general population here has moved out of pubs and into cafes at a great rate so maybe the bar girls are just following the crowd?

    ...although I doubt someone on their 3rd espresso would tip as well as the punter on their 5th beer.
    ;)


    PS: Foreign Correspondent is about the best show on telly... outstanding stories, well researched, well shot with small crews and very high production values. One of the last free to air shows that employs journalists too.

    Simple. Instead of asking for takeaway, coffee with legs takes itself away. Leaves both hands free

    Good point, although it certainly wont be the whole show and I expect it will carry a better message than "we shot some girlies wearing bugger-all for ratings" (a la current affair).

    And so it should be, we, the Taxpayer are paying for it! All the other channels can be referred to as Starbucks/\/Stale Coffee... revolting. What amazes me is that most people take what ACA and TT publish as gospel.. how sad and twisted and sick is that?

    True, but not always the case. I would be curious to know what the Foreign Correspondent budget is, I suspect they are doing wonders per dollar.

    What amazes me is that most people take what ACA and TT publish as gospel.. how sad and twisted and sick is that?
    Could it be a reflection of what "the people" want? Those same fluff stories about Paris, Britney, Tom, Lindsey and Nicole sell plenty of garbage magazines and I assume draw viewers to the same low-brow TV.

    I often tell myself that no one watches that content but shows of that "quality" stay in primetime so sadly someone must.

    (oops, I think I have driffed off-topic and onto a soapbox).

    I hear that in Chile you can get your doppio served by girls in lingerie.

    :)

    I think the best interviewer On TV is Andrew Denton

    But yes Andy, I think the same as you.. " I often tell myself that no one watches that content but shows of that "quality" stay in primetime so sadly someone must."

    Anyway... back to topic.. and moreover, back to work ;-)

    No doubt an underhanded way of getting rid of all that stale coffee that no-one would drink otherwise.....

    mmm, might keep abreast of this one - bit cheeky, but a titillating concept.

    If the concepts got legs (evidently the gals do), then maybe a sip-n-perve op could be a goa here? Seems sexploitation still resonates as a factor when considering boosting the bottom line ...

    Quite popular in parts of the West Coast of the U.S., bikini espresso places.
