The pop-up shop in Manhattan promotes "the art of coffee without the caffeine," the Washington Post reports. The New York Eater calls it, "the first sign of the cultural apocalypse.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene, hosting today from New York City, where something blasphemous has happened. A coffee shop has opened serving - wait for it - just decaf coffee in the city that never sleeps - well, I guess until now. The Washington Post is reporting on the Swiss Water Coffee Studio, a pop-up open in Manhattan all this week promoting the art of coffee without the caffeine. The publication New York Eater described things differently, calling this, quote, "the first sign of the cultural apocalypse." It's MORNING EDITION.
