Michael Jackson coffee scale

In a busy office environment it’s often better if one person makes a round of drinks for everyone, that way you don’t all leave your desk at the same time and the work flow isn’t interrupted too much. However, it’s difficult when making tea and coffee for five or more people when you have to do them all differently, sugar/no sugar, white/black, various degrees of milk. This is why I’ve come up with the Michael Jackson coffee scale. It’s simple and easy to understand, as everyone knows who Michael Jackson is, and what colour he was at different stages in his career.

For example, if you want a black coffee you ask for a 1968 Jacko, if you want it really milky you ask for a 2002 Jacko. If you like a splash of milk, you ask for a 1984 Jacko.

It’s very straightforward and everyone understands the scaling system. Plus, if you need one for your office wall, here’ a handy printout that you can paste up in your office. You can even use it to pantone match the colour of your coffee.

  1. 35 ‘share this page’ icons and not a single one of them is Facebook? I think I need a cup of 2002 strength coffee to puzzle this one out! :)
