It seems silly to buy new things when old things can do the job just as well and are more interesting. My dad loves Luzianne coffee. It’s made with chickory and is an acquired taste. He acquired it because it’s what my grandfather drank, and now my brother drinks it too. I don’t really like it but I do like this can. It’s perfect for holding plastic bags, and also reminding me of my grandfather, who is no longer living, and of my dad, who lives 6,000 miles away.
