Or more prosaically, “blue bottle fly”?
The blue bottle fly or bottlebee (Calliphora vomitoria) is a common blow-fly found in most areas of the world and is the type species for the genus Calliphora. Similar species include the green bottle fly, a close relative that can be distinguished by its bright green metallic colouring. Blue bottle fly adults feed on nectar, while the larvae feed on carcasses of dead animals. Adults are also pollinators to some flowers with strong odor.
Business Insider says that “Blue Bottle Coffee” is a hot new coffee company that techies with too much money on their hands are investing in. I’m sure it’s a fine brew, and perhaps San Francisco residents don’t know what a blue bottle fly is, but if this venture expands across the country, I think it will run into consumer resistance from those who do.
But maybe not – “Jersey Shore” was a hit, so the American public seems open to ingesting all sorts of disgusting swill.
