GQ's "The Apocalypse Preppers Who Think Coffee Will Save Them"

GQ's

We recently came across this article by GQ.com and found it not only hilariously true (IMO), but also informative.

Some of our favorite lines (which we whole-heartedly agree with) are:

  • “[Coffee] would give you a moment to think in a stressful moment like bugging out,” Bailey tells me. He will need food, water, and shelter, obviously, but he will also need coffee. When survivors and non-zombies pass through Bailey’s makeshift camp, he’ll offer them a seat and some coffee. 
  • A “cuppa,” he says, “is a good way to make peace and meet strangers in the bush.” Also, he adds, a “great wood stain.”
  • “In an SHTF (sh*t hits the fan) situation,” Bailey says, “cash will be worth toilet paper.” Coffee will be worth a lot.
  • We guzzle 587 million cups a day, and 62 percent of Americans drink coffee every day, according to the National Coffee Association. To stop drinking coffee on a dime because you’ve been driven from house and home is a recipe for destruction—especially if you’re already in the midst of a global-scale disaster.
  • More than chocolate, or booze, or delicious RUFFLES® Cheddar & Sour Cream flavored potato chips, coffee is what we will crave to the point of necessity.
  • The relationship between man and coffee has been there since the beginning: Great Rift Valley in Ethiopia, also known as “the cradle of mankind,” is where both humans and coffee are said to have emerged. Literally the very first humans were like, not before our java!
