Coca-Cola will be bringing automatic coffee vending machines to the USA:
Costa Smart Café is a revolutionary piece of autonomous equipment that provides barista-quality coffee at the touch of a button - essentially an unmanned coffee shop in a box. ... The hot and cold drinks are always crafted using fresh beans, which are ground inside the machine, and fresh milk, which is frothed by the machine.

More about the machines:
This is the world's first integrated self-serve coffee machine, reinvented to deliver both hot and iced drinks. The machine can deliver over 500 barista-quality hot & iced drinks, from iced coffees to flavoured iced fruit cordials.

Somebody locally sold a Riviera for $70 this morning. I received an email reply that was bcc'd to all the people who inquired, stating that yes, he actually sold it for $70. :shock:

I got something similar.
Coffee beans from a japanese roastery in Kobe but roasted in Spain (for the european market).
If the result is identical to the original I don't care :mrgreen:

recall reading that Heineken bought some Asahi brands a few years ago, Heineken is brewed all over the planet...and it tastes equally bland everywhere....I think they do the same thing with Asahi.

I remember reading about Italian olive oil. It can be shipped from anywhere in the world even blended from multiple countries and then bottled in Italy as an "A product of Italy"

Within the EU the origin of the content must be mentioned on the label, so Italian bottled olive oil within the EU will have the origin described on the label as 'made from Italian oil' or made from oil originating within EU' or 'made from oil within and outside EU'. If Italian oil is from one region it may have the D.O.P label to indicate regionality.

Can't talk about Italian olive oil without mentioning Corleone and Genco. 8)

My goto EVO is Fattoria La Vialla, a biodynamic producer of olive oil, wines, pasta etc.
