    Can you imagine how much more agonizing a trip to Starbucks would be if your barista started judging you on what pastry you got with your pumpkin spice latte? “Ooh, the chocolate croissant, are you sure? Because the bitterness of the cocoa will totally battle with the sweetness of the cinnamon. Better just go with a bagel. Plus it’s vegan (I think). Yeah, you’re welcome.”

    Well, like it or not, coffee is the latest beverage to go the old sommelier route, as the Coffee Collective coffee company in Denmark is now offering food pairings to go along with each of its specific drinks.
    The idea is to keep the foods as simple as possible – “nothing that has enough potency to take the focus away from the the [sic] cup,” says the Coffee Collective blog. So that means no avocado, no chili, no chocolate.

    Hmmm, no chocolate with coffee? Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts and all the other coffee shops sure aren't going to toss out their chocolate-enhanced desserts and chocolate-covered coffee beans! No more chocolate-dipped biscotti allowed with coffee? I don't think so! :rolleyes:
