Avoid the honey in coffee shops

This morning after having bought my coffee, I went to grab the honey from the self-serve area. Noticing it was missing, I checked above the espresso machine to see if it was there. As it wasn’t, I asked someone for it and they went to get a fresh one. Upon his return, he told me that they were now keeping the honey behind the counter as “people were drinking it.” I wasn’t so much disgusted as I was upset at being told that fact now after months of adding saliva-laden honey to my coffee. Sometimes honesty isn’t the best policy.

    Interesting, but is it possible the server meant ‘drinking’, as in putting a heck of a lot in their coffee? Or did he truly mean people were putting their whole mouths on the spout? I can only think an inebriated person or a high school student would do something so nasty.

    You really take your coffee with honey? I’ve never heard of that. Kinda nasty sounding, but I won’t knock it til I’ve tried it.

    Well, it could bee worse. Honey has natural antiseptic properties that prevent the growth of bacteria.

    Honey is wonderfull in coffee. I think he might have ment that some people were putting it in their coffee cups without having any coffee in it no actually drinking right from it. No one in the right mind would do that.

    “BTW honey contains bee urine and feces.”3


    study shows that bee comes out of the hive to clean themselves, some sort of “cleansing flight”. bees don’t defecate on their house. that is how tidy it is.
