In this special Portlandia edition of the Cooking Channel series "You're Eating It Wrong," Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, filming on-location at Portland's Oblique Coffee Roasters, very gently point out all the ways you're drinking coffee incorrectly. In the video, the duo offer some deadpan pro-tips about everything from ordering to tipping to laptop squatting. "There's a seriousness, and there's a certain amount of composure you need to have," Brownstein says about ordering at the counter. "You need to go in with the graveness and seriousness of a court date."
Armisen also deftly demonstrates the appropriate body language for a serious coffee-talk conservation. Slamming down the cup onto a coaster, he advises: "Cup down is when you've gotta make your point." Go, watch the coffee drinking tips above.
