Black coffee with milk, the new trendy London drink...

You may scoff, but this is it. This is the new coffee drink that all the London trendies will be drinking through the fall season, then it will sweep the nation. The big coffee shop chain will, of course, have to give it their own trademarked names. Starbucks will probably call it "Blackuccino" or something equally stupid.

Still doubting me, well try and order a black coffee anywhere in London and 9 times out of 10 you will get the Blackuccino. I have tried asking for a "black coffee, no milk" but I either get a blank stare in response, or the minimum wage flunky behind the counter latches onto the word 'milk' and takes it as a reinforcement of the idea that I couldn't possible have been asking for a black coffee, because no-one drinks those.

At least once the Blackuccino has a name they will know when I am not ordering that!

'Minimum wage flunky'? Check out Matt the snob.

Excellent work with 'Blackuccino' though. You should market that without delay. It reminds me of that episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm when he's in the coffee shop and he's trying to get theminimum wage flunky to explain to him what a late is. Funniest thing I've seen in ages. You are the English Larry David. Congrats
