Animated Map Shows Where Your Favorite Coffee Actually Comes From

Nearly two thirds of Americans drink coffee everyday, but how many of them know where it comes from? If you sip your morning joe from major brands like Starbucks, Dunkin’, or McDonalds, chances are it comes from one of several countries in Latin America. Companies source from different regions to reduce risk, maintain a steady supply of beans in different seasons, and serve different flavors to their customers.

Sneaky Ways Starbucks Gets You To Spend More Money

Starbucks always ends up costing a little more than expected. Seattle’s biggest coffee chain has figured out how to keep its loyal Frappuccino-loving and iced coffee caffeine- addicts happy. It is constantly creating new variations of old standards, from the holiday-themed cup and Pumpkin Spice Lattes to Unicorn Frappuccinos and Frappy Hour.

Following is a transcript of the video:

Narrator: It’s hard to pass up the smell of freshly brewed coffee. And this familiar green mermaid has come to mean just that all around the world. Here’s how Seattle’s biggest coffee chain is capitalizing on our need for caffeine. There’s a reason why Starbucks always ends up costing us a little more than we expected.

We often pass up that super cheap cup of deli joe and choose to splurge a little more at Starbucks. So how do they keep luring us in?

Well, for one thing, Starbucks has figured out how to keep their loyal Frappuccino-loving and iced coffee caffeine addicts happy. They are constantly creating new variations of old standards. Unicorn, Zombie, Double Double Fudge Bar Frappuccinos, and the Pumpkin Spice Lattes that usher in fall. Customers rush to the closest Starbucks to try these limited-time offers. Thus, keeping things exciting and unpredictable.

Starbucks stores are designed to be aesthetically pleasing while also catching customers’ attention. The food case is generally kept in the best lit area of the store, drawing your attention right to it. And those very tempting grab-and-go items right by the register, like candy, cookies, and nuts, are low-cost add-ons that do eventually add up. Stores often change their floor layout. By rearranging, it makes you notice new products you may not have tried before.

Starbucks is constantly swapping in new merchandise and changing cup designs based on the season, making things like the annual holiday-themed cup an Instagrammable must-have. And what about Frappy Hour? These are often advertised in-store and through the app. Their loyalty program almost turns ordering into a game, where we keep trying to get to the next level. Through the Starbucks app, you can find special offers, reload your card, and even redeem points for rewards. Buy enough drinks, about 16, and you’re rewarded with one free drink.

Everyone knows Starbucks’s three signature sizes, tall, grande, and venti. But, there’s another size they don’t tell you about, short, which is eight ounces. The short is smaller and less expensive than a tall. But, you have to specifically ask the barista for it. Another tip, you can always ask for light ice. Instead of a grande iced coffee, save money by asking for a tall with light ice instead. You’ll spend less while getting almost the same amount of coffee, just with less ice. There you have it. If you’re looking to stay on a coffee budget, you may want to think twice about your daily dose of Starbucks.

Aziz Ansari Didn’t Address His #MeToo Moment At A Sold Out Show In Knoxville

Aziz Ansari is making a comeback.

Over the last month, the comedian has started hosting “pop-up shows” in cities across the country. They’re billed under the title “Working Out New Material” with the intent of doing exactly that.

With only a few days’ notice, he’s sold out venues in Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Madison, Bennettsville, South Carolina, and most recently, Knoxville. They’re some of the first advertised stand-up sets Ansari has done since sexual harassment allegations were made against him in January by an anonymous 23-year-old photographer in a Babe.net article, which added his name to a long list of powerful men swept up in the #MeToo movement. Ansari subsequently shrank himself from the spotlight: no performances, no interviews, barely any paparazzi shots.

Ansari’s position in the constellation of Hollywood #MeToo stories is a complicated one. It happened on a date, while many of the other incidents happened under more professional guises. It’s one woman’s story, in contrast to the scores of victims who have shared stories about Harvey Weinstein and Charlie Rose. These details, however, don’t render Ansari’s accuser’s story or feelings any less valid. If anything, they warrant an even more nuanced conversation about enthusiastic consent and victim-blaming.

But so far, if anyone has gone to one of Ansari’s shows looking to gain clarity on his accusations, they haven’t found it.

Thursday night’s Knoxville show at the Tennessee Theatre was announced a week ago and just a few days after Louis C.K. made a surprise appearance at New York City’s Comedy Cellar. Tickets went for $42 and sold out quickly despite the short-notice. Par for Ansari’s previous “Working Out New Material” shows, the audience was warned that phones and smart watches would be locked away during the show. It’s a practice that’s become de rigueur at comedy shows to prevent jokes from hitting the internet and spoiling the experience of future audiences.

After brief sets from Wil Sylvince and Phil Hanley, Ansari made his way to the stage, wearing a T-shirt from Kanye West’s Yeezus tour, and was welcomed by roaring applause. A bit about staying off his own phone rolled seamlessly into jokes about how quickly and incisively the internet vilifies people — without leaving room for a nuanced conversation. He talked about Roseanne, the CEO of Starbucks, and the teen who was accused of cultural appropriation for wearing a Chinese qipao to prom.

At one point, he quizzes the audience on a new outrage he saw online: Pizza Hut is embroiled in scandal because some customers thought they were delivered a pizza with the pepperonis arranged in the shape of a swastika. But some people online think it looks more like a Star of David. Other people think it just looks like a regular pizza. He likens it to the Laurel/Yanny auditory illusion that went viral in May and encourages the audience to weigh in.

Clap if you saw a swastika. Clap if you saw a Star of David. Clap if you just saw a pizza. (There are no visual aids, he’s operating on the assumption that you know what he’s talking about.) At the end of the poll, Ansari reveals he made the whole thing up, but everyone who clapped chose to take a side anyway. It’s a believable premise, and the bit easily functions as an allegory for a variety of outrage greatest hits like The Dress, “fake news,” or even Ansari’s own experience with the Babe.net article.

To be clear, there is no “Babe.net,” no “#MeToo,” no “Louis C.K.” no “Harvey Weinstein” in this show. The majority of Ansari’s Knoxville material meditated on race in America, especially his own experiences as an Indian actor in Hollywood — getting mistaken for Kumail Nanjiani, his take on The Problem With Apu, having difficulties casting a younger version of himself for Master Of None, and the realities of dating as part of a mixed race couple in the public eye.

Ansari goes on to explain that sometimes his girlfriend doesn’t pick up on racist microaggressions because she’s a white woman from Denmark. He had to explain to her why publications refer to her as “Becky.” When someone yells at them on the street that she probably gets a lot of free taxi rides with him as her boyfriend, she takes it to be a comment on her being perceived as a gold digger, only dating him for his wealth. But Ansari explains to her that the man is using the stereotype that Indian people are taxi drivers to make fun of him.

Starbucks’ Racial Bias Training Went Great, According To Starbucks (HBO)

On Tuesday, more than 8,000 Starbucks stores in the US closed for the afternoon as employees were put through training. For four hours, employees nationwide watched short documentaries, wrote in notebooks, and discussed their own feelings about bias.

Most of the material is focused on showing employees what it’s like to be black in America – getting followed in stores, or being afraid to even go outside.

But for black employees, is this helpful? Or worse, might it be even be traumatic?

It’s a little hard to know how baristas — black, white or otherwise — actually feel about the training, because Starbucks won’t allow media to interview them.

VICE News visited a tightly controlled media interview session to see just how optimistic Starbucks’ upper management is about training people to not be racist.

Kris Kobach Wanted This 20 Year-Old To Go To Jail For Accidentally Voting Twice (HBO)

Even without Trump’s voter fraud commission, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach hasn’t let up in his pursuit of finding and prosecuting any illegal voting in his home state. In January, Kobach filed his latest charges against a 67-year-old cattle rancher and the youngest criminal voter yet, 20-year-old Bailey McCaughey.

In 2016, McCaughey was home in Colorado for a rodeo tournament when she filled out an mail-in ballot for the presidential election. She returned to college in Kansas that fall, forgetting about the ballot she’d left at home on the kitchen counter, and voted again with friends on election day. It wasn’t until her mom called a few days later to tell her she’d mailed her ballot that Bailey realized she’d voted twice — both times for Donald Trump.

A few months later, Kobach came calling. McCaughey says that a detective from Kobach’s office contacted her in August 2017, and that she was upfront with him about mistakenly voting twice. They met once at a Starbucks in Garden City, Kansas and he reassured her that the charges would likely be dropped. McCaughey says she was never contacted by anyone from the secretary of state’s office again. (Kobach and the secretary of state’s office did not respond to multiple interview requests from VICE News.)

In January 2018, McCaughey learned from a reporter that Kobach had filed two felony charges against her: election perjury and voting more than once, the latter of which carries a jail sentence of up to 13 months.

Kobach is the first and only secretary of state in the country with the power to prosecute these kinds of cases. In 2015, he convinced the state legislature to give him prosecutorial authority, arguing that widespread voter fraud warranted it. But in three years since, he’s charged just 15 people, only two of which have been noncitizens.

VICE News went to Kansas to see what it’s like when Kobach comes after you.
