  1. it’s poblano, with an “a.”

    It seems to me, it’s apples & oranges, anyway. They are two different drinks, and there are plenty of people (me included) who like them both.

    And what about coffee drinkers? And sweet tea drinkers? Yerba mate drinkers? Bottled water? Pepsi? Coke?

    (Sidenote: when I was in Africa, I discovered that they drink prodigious amounts of Coca-cola. They probably drink more Coke than water. It also tasted slightly different.)
