Would you like your coffee like this, or not?



Just before going on holiday, I ran out of filter coffee.

I asked my gal if we had any open, as I didn't want to open a fresh pack, and have it go off, whilst we're away.

"Yes," she said, "there's that stuff that Maria (her friend who is originally from Venezuela) brought back from Venezuela. It's in the fridge."

And this is what the packet looked like...

Would you like your coffee like this, or not? 'Made with Socialism'? In a fucking heart?

I know things are bad there, I really do (I hear all sorts of stories via this girl, who still has family there).

But cheap political propaganda on COFFEE?

What kind of sloganeering would YOU like to see on the packaging of your favourite breakfast beverage?

  • Man who ever thought of putting political propaganda on a bag of coffee that person is an asshole. I bet the line of thinking was "you know what'll piss people off propaganda on a bag of coffee so you see it when you first get upπŸ˜„πŸ˜" Was it at least decent coffee though?

    • Good question, and no, it absolutely sucked balls.

      I drank it with an open mind, bearing in mind some of the best coffee in the world comes from places not too far from Venezuela (Jamaica, Colombia etc), but it was weak in taste, no real aroma, and not a great aftertaste.

      I guess that's what 'making coffee with socialism' achieves?

    • Show All
    • A truly atrocious combination...

    • good way to start a movement though... πŸ€”πŸ˜†

  • I think that's hilarious. I would save the bag.

    • I actually checked the packaging, because I was expecting to find some kind of fixed price (with lots and lots of 000s on the end) printed on it.

      Sadly not, though.

  • B... wtf..! And yea Venezuela is pretty bad bow.. both ecomically and socially wise.

  • made with socialism means like fair trade... but I guess a Venezuelan coffee can be way better than other ones, because Venezuela produces coffee, not only import it like the most countrys...

    • and propaganda is everywhere, think on kellogg's cornflakes, more nutrients in the package than in the cornflakes, but good for health xD

    • No, this *IS* propaganda. The Kellogg's stuff is marketing.

      And the coffee was unremittingly grim, too. They might produce it, but it's still crap.

    • coffee get an add in every country whos only import for a specific flavour, like curry... maybe you drank first time real coffee ;)

      oh please explain me the different between propaganda and marketing...

  • I would be happy to wipe my but with socialist made toilet paper

    • I once was in a hipster ice cream shop in Cambridge (I am never going again not because of what this story but because they didn't actually have basic flavors and instead had weird and hipsterish ones.) And they sold ginger ale that had a FREE TIBET. Slogan on it. Now I'm a left leaning kind of guy, and I am sympathetic to the cayse of an independent tibet but I prefer my sodas to be apolitical. He'll, unless its a candiate supporting shirt (I'd never wear one myself) the only sort of political message that I don't mind being on a piece of otherwise apolitical merchandise would be the ones that say they were made by union workers

    • Cause A, unions are important and B. They have the decency to put it on the inside tag with the size, where its made, and what material its made from, so no one sees it unless they took a look inside the shirt

  • I am not a coffee person
