Frappaccino 6th Graders Club
So let's look at this from a parent's perspective - my son's friends are getting hooked on coffee before they are done growing. Could this mean a new generation of short guys? Are we nurturing our future baristas? Will they take coffee to new heights in 10 years? Will they replace the empty coffee can or leave us hanging?
Let's look at it from an educators perspective - well, at least they are not drinking RockStar's which the parents would complain about. And students falling asleep in class is a thing of the past. The classroom smells like home. Maybe one could bring a refill for the teacher?
For now, my son will have a cool metal mug to tote around - filled to the brim swith creamy, steaming hot cocoa. What do you think, would decaf coffee be just as harmful as full-caff to a young body? Should I embrace the trend knowing I won't have any more notes from the teacher that he fell asleep?
