Would You Pay Starbucks $7 For a Cup of Their New Confirmacebo Biaffect Blend?

This week's Funny Friday video featuring Jimmy Kimmel's crew giving people two identical cups of plain coffee and telling them one's uber-fancy suggests to me that if you do buy one, you're going to love it.

Not because it'll necessarily taste remarkably different, but rather because we as a species aren't all that bright.

The blend is actually called Costa Rica Finca Palmilera but I like my name better.

Have a great weekend!

      I feel like this is where the idea came from! Most people can't tell the difference between expensive and cheap wine, part of the "experience" is how expensive you think it is.

    That was amazing. One of my coworkers suggested we do our own taste test when/if they start selling it in Canada.
