WHAT'S YOUR POISON ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Eyes were popping at 7th and Montana as the Powers-that-Be placed a new warning sign prominently on display by the condiments bar. "Yikes," I said to one of the Baristas, "According to this warning, we're at risk of exposure to cancer causing chemicals." "Well, that's just one of those things that happen in old buildings like this ... you never know when there might be asbestos or something overhead. Don't worry about it!" "Great," I thought, "Better lay off the powdered donuts." But the warning (pictured above) doesn't say anything about asbestos ... It's all about the coffee. The sign specifically says: "Chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and reproductive toxicity, including acrylamide, are present in coffee, baked goods and other foods or beverages sold here." I guess that's what they mean when they say "Good to the last drop ...!"
