St. Louis Bread Company
(or Panera Bread
, as its known to the rest of the pre-made panini-loving nation) is giving away cups of its coffee. Which is great because no one should have to pay for that swill!
Wait -- what? Bread Co. is offering new
Yes, it's true. Yet another company is following McDonald's
lead and tweaking its coffee menu to pry business away from Starbucks
. Bread Co. is delving deeply into the wide world of coffee by offering a "light" roast and a "dark" roast. The light roast is blended from South and Central American beans, the dark from Costa Rican beans.
Fans of Bread Co.'s coffee -- if you exist -- should know that the hazelnut and decaf blends won't be changing. So you've got that going for you.
