SILVER SPRING,Md. — In a renewed push for caffeine-free coffee alternatives, the General Conference has purchased the roasted grain beverage brand Roma.
However, because of concerns that the drink powder’s name would sound too much like an alignment with Rome and the Vatican, the GC announced plans to rebrand the drink as “Silver Spring.”
GC Brand Ambassador Redde Buhl said that the new name of the drink “gets rid of confusing Catholic connotations and is both fresh-sounding and geographically-updated.”

With that rebranding, does the drink also carry a new a-roma?
I was impressed that a better name for our beloved Kaffree grain beverage is Tedaroma. “It’s a good thing”.
Why not call like it is-FAKE CAFFIENE FREE BEVERAGE. Good for what ails ya!
I always drink some with my stash of Little Debbie. One sugar, dash of half & half. Drinkalicious.
