The battle between the Saints and Seahawks just got hotter. Who Dat’s are calling on coffee connoisseurs to boycott Seattle-based Starbucks coffee in a little friendly battle of the brews. It’s in an effort to promote local coffee shops and the Saints team spirit.
“The heads of both ports are having their competition. A lot of people do that. Mayors will compete. People will say; here’s our favorite meal versus your favorite meal,” says Michael Bartlett of Z’otz Coffee House.
The “Grind the Seahawks” campaign only runs through the Saints and Seahawks show down this weekend.
” I don’t have anything against Starbucks itself, they have done a lot for coffee culture in America, but here in New Orleans, we have had our own coffee culture, and we have a different flavor to things. I want to celebrate that. There are a lot of great shops in New Orleans,” Bartlett says.
