As if the South Sudanese didn’t have enough to worry about, now they’ve got to contend with George Clooney turning their perfectly good coffee crop into Nespresso.

And in other celebrity-coffee-conflict news (yes, there’s more), eastern Congolese coffee made it into the Starbucks Reserve collection this summer, thanks to a partnership with Ben Affleck’s Eastern Congo Initiative. Here’s hoping there’s more of it soon, because the processing plant I visited last summer (blurry photo below) smelled AMAZING.
