From Engadget: I'm not sure why you would want to order a decaf but if you really must, and you think your barista is out to get, you then you need D+Caf strips. These litmus test like strips will detect if you've accidentally gotten the full caf version of your favourite brew.

Why not Tea?

A nice primer on tea for those of you who are die hard coffee drinkers and are looking for a change.

My favourite bulk tea here in Canada is Lipton Yellow Label. It is a nice smooth tea that has been brewed for over 110 years. It comes in convenient single serving bags and is relatively inexpensive. Try it over Red Rose.
