I Love You Too, Wawa

Check the awesome power of Seen Through A Glass.

Last October I publicly dissed Wawa's disappointing treatment of their coffee. I urged them to dump the Bunn Coffee Burners and put their otherwise decent coffee in thermal carafes. There seemed to be some motion in that direction in January.

Then last night, Yards Brewing's Steven J. Mashington sent me this picture of fellow Yardser Steve Welsh tapping himself a fresh cuppa thermally-coddled Wawa Coffeetopia, at the 21st & Hamilton Wawa (where, by the way, they'll be celebrating the Wawaversary on September 21, which coffee all day!). That's looking like success, baby.

So, Wawa. A couple things. First, thanks for listening. Second, no charge. Really. Third, Trevose, dammit, Trevose!

Oh. And I'm still waiting for diesel. Cuz I got two of 'em now. Good coffee, and diesel. I know you can do it.

I'm sure I'm the thousandth person to point this out, but is there a more perfect brewer name than Mashington?

Coffee and diesel?

I think my new nickname for you might be "Truck Stop." Or "Peterbilt."

Lew Bryson said...

Be prepared to be ignored, Sandy.

Old truckers never die, they just get their Peterbilt.

It had to be said. Done now.

Lew Bryson said...

I thought they got it rebilt.

Steven said...

Lemme get this straight -- you're hoping this coffee shop will start serving Beer & Cola? Yeesh, man -- I wouldn't have thought you liked that mix.


Lew Bryson said...

Steve, that's geekin' even for you!

Steven said...

But it's transcontinental geeking! ;-D
