It’s been a while since we posted a mindless mini coffee review for some low rotation corner of the country. So today we bring you a brief coffee tour of Tulsa, OK from the local university rag: The Collegian Online: Take a caffeinated tour of Tulsa. It’s a short list, alright. But the one notable here is the DoubleShot Coffee Company.
Yes, this is the same DoubleShot that recently got a cease-and-desist salvo from the law partners of Starbucks, Starbucks, and Starbucks because their name infringed on Starbucks’ stale-espresso-and-milk-in-a-can concoction, the Starbucks DoubleShot. One represents one of the finer roasters and espresso purveyors in the nation’s heartland. The other represents, well, the coffee equivalent of yesterday’s reheated frozen pizza served up cold for breakfast. No matter, the law firm of Starbucks, Starbucks, and Starbucks must vigorously defend against the precedent of consumers confusing their product with good coffee.
However, should you find yourself 100 miles ENE of Oklahoma City for some reason, we recommend that you skip the can and go straight for the cup — preferrably of that “other” DoubleShot.
