Me and a friend always meet in a Costbucks, even though my anti-globalisation gene doesn't totally/really approve of them.

I don't actually drink coffee: I only drink coffee out. I'm a social coffee-drinker. Coffeeist.

But there's a lot of coffee out there. In the hairdresser they offer me coffee. And every single meeting I go to, people have high-end coffee kit and do the business. It's almost as if work's the side-issue. Coffee is the main issue. Like, I often "have coffee" with people who are not friends; work colleagues, ex colleagues, possible clients, friends of friends. Having coffee is big.

So you need a place to do it.

Thoughtful piece in today's Guardian on cafefication culture.
