Just in time to bring a jolting halt to the pregnancy you can't afford to go through with in a recession, Starbucks is experimenting with selling $1 cups of coffee. (Oh wait, that was offensive. Sorry.) Whatever, the $1 cups of coffee are the oft-discussed, rarely-seen "short" cups that, at 8 ounces, were not that popular before they were taken off the menu in the late nineties to make way for the "venti." They're also planning on giving free refills on some drinks. Meanwhile in San Francisco, some representative of the other side of the widening income gap brings you a $20,000 coffee maker. [WSJ]
