Pronunciation: dĭ-prěs'ka-fā'

Sentence: There she was again slumped over her organic Sumatra-Peru blend latte with soy milk and a double shot, in the upholstered chair section of the corner Starbucks, eyes lined in red and moping about the latest fight with her girlfriend and her relative destitution since the loss of her job in the thrift store that used to occupy this space. She'd no doubt leave again without tipping and return to the luxury condo that her dad maintained for her for some afternoon poolside tanning. What a depresscaffe.

Etymology: depression, in psychiatry, a symptom of mood disorder characterized by intense feelings of loss, sadness, hopelessness, failure, and rejection. caffè, It. for coffee,borrowed from the Ottoman Turkish kahveh, and the Arabic qahwa (قهوة) collectively. The origin of the Arabic term is uncertain; it is either derived from the name of the Kaffa region in western Ethiopia, where coffee was cultivated, or by a truncation of qahwat al-būnn, meaning "wine of the bean" in Arabic; also a neat rhyme with Nescafe (tm).

Etymology: crabby + bean + cappuccino
