Strange Brew

The Java Buddha Coffeehouse, a quirky westside establishment that caters to, among many others, Colorado Springs' faithful fringe, recently unveiled a new blend of coffee that's one-half caffeinated, one-half decaf.

They call it the Haggerd Blend (their spelling, not mine), apparently named after the Rev. Ted Haggard who fell from grace last November after a male escort alleged having a three-year sexual relationship with him.

Their advertising slogan is "Haggerd Blend: When You Just Can't Decide!"

I don't know if Haggard is a big coffee drinker, but I do know he loved his heavily caffeinated Mountain Dew.

Several weeks ago, the guy at Java Buddha told me they changed the spelling to avoid potential legal issues.

He also said that he was donating 10% of the profits to charity - half to a gay & lesbian fund and half to New Life because "fair is fair". Might be a story in that for you.
