Why do I sing the praises of decaf coffee? Because without it, you couldn’t have a cup of joe with your crow baby.
I’m being 100% serious here. In this three-minute video from The Dodo, a man rescued a baby crow — he taught him how to be comfortable around humans, nursed him back to health, and now has him as part of the family. He makes his little crow a cup of decaf, specifically, because caffeine isn’t good for birds. These are the kinds of stories that sound straight out of a whimsical children’s book.
The next time some coffee snob blathers about the evils of decaf coffee, I’ll ask: “But can you give it to your winged children?”
Speaking of once-in-a-lifetime segues, check out my recent coffee review of Talking Crow Roasters’ Decaf Sampler Pack. I’ll be updating with a sequel soon reviewing the rest of their portfolio.
