Opening Arguments

It's caffeine, not cocaine, OK?

I love my coffee, but this is just stupid:

How much are you willing to pay for a cup of joe?

A gourmet coffee chain is betting you'll pay up to $12 for a fine brew.

Cafe Grumpy has Brooklyn locations in Greenpoint and Park Slope.  It also has a Manhattan location in Chelsea.

It is part of a small, but growing, movement of coffee shops roasting their own beans.

Yeah, they roast their own beans, big whoop. Roast your own beans, put the coffee in a cup and have it delivered to me by a woman in a Hooter's uniform who will rub my feet for me, and I might go $7.50.

If the foot rub is a sure thing, I'll go $8.50....but I'm drawing the line there...

...And, If she's a brunette that happens to look like Salma Hayek, I'd even go all the way up to NINE BUCKS!
