What does the word “Sprudge” mean?

Sprudge is both neologism and parody.

“Sprudge” is a made-up word for the coffee crumbs, blotches, and splats present on a barista’s clothing and shoes after a long shift on bar. We’ll use it in a sentence: “Listen, you finish dividing up the tips, I gotta go get this sprudge off my shoes.”

“Sprudge” is also a portmanteau of the words “Espresso” and “Drudge”. In our first three months of publishing, Sprudge.com was a faithful visual parody of The Drudge Report circa 2009, right down to the Hugo Chavez puns.

Thank you for reading Sprudge.com, the world’s most popular coffee publication.
