Speaking of the ridiculousness of "minimal essential coffee benefits" required to be provided; I purchased a double espresso the other day at the Starbucks in our local grocery store. Standing at the designated spot waiting for the espresso, watching the "barista," I see her reach for a lid for my little paper cup of espresso shots so I say to her, "I don't need a lid." The barista responds to my no lid request by stating, "Company "policy" requires that I put a lid on your coffee." I guess that's a minimal essential coffee benefit, now.
