Butter and coffee are two of the greatest food discoveries of all time. The smell of coffee brewing will stop you in your tracks at the office and force you to wait in the break room; cup in hand. A warm, buttery croissant will make you fall off of that diet wagon two hours after you have committed to eating healthier. So what happens when you combine the two? What happens when you put butter in your coffee?

In his five book collection of poems entitled Satires, Decimus Iunius Iuvenalis, known in English as Juvenal, made public his ills and annoyances associated with 1st and 2nd century Rome. Holding nothing back in his educated yet humorous critique, Juvenal exposed the threats that plagued the common man. Among those were threats stemming from the government itself. In his tenth book in the series, Satire X, Juvenal's disdain for governmental manipulation in order to gain power is viewed. In 140 B.C., Roman politicians devised a plan to win the votes of new citizens by giving out cheap, or sometimes even free, food and entertainment. "Bread and Circuses", the practice of providing free wheat and playful games was brought to the forefront of Roman culture.
