    Coffee muggles

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I've started reading Harry Potter with my kids and it struck me this morning - what's an appropriate term for people who aren't coffee snobs?

    If wizards and witches call non-magicians muggles, what do we call people who are happy to make do with crap coffee?

    I reckon most of the normal types would look on us as decidedly odd, given the amount of cash and time we spend on what, after all is only a drink.

    I'd call them "blissfully ignorant" because they are never going to be deeply unhappy, desperately disappointed, or angry and frustrated with a crap coffee.
