Outta the Past: Cantwell on Coffee and Competition

As I was just saying . . . .

"... coffee people just aren't like us [beer people]. They're more territorial, for one thing, and with a hefty percentage of the world's urban street corners tenanted by a slavering green and white multinational competitor, you really can't blame them. Imagine the diminutive size of the pie slice collectively available to us [craft beer makers] of we had to contend with several dozen Anheuser-Busch pubs serving creditable beer in each of our market areas.
