When discussing coffee, and preferences regarding it, it is important to note that a distinction between things is not the same as a value judgement. Establishing something as being wholly "other" is merely to say that it is in fact different, fundamentally so, neither better nor worse. It is to assert, simply, that while perhaps there is value in places that serve pumpkin spice lattes, there is also value in places that do not, that those two things might co-exist, but in so doing, exist separately. All culture need not be popular culture.
