    If coffee was invented today, it would get categorized as the most powerful drug there is, ever, and most harmful to humans ... and it would be sold only by official recipe with many stamps and by showing your passport and possible some other biological identification methods too, and distributed only in small dozes ... and the price would be huuuge -----

    Coffee. When Did It Become Such A Pretentious, Wanky Beverage?
    Coffee. When Did It Become Such A Pretentious, Wanky Beverage?Coffee, it’s just a drink is it not? To all the hipsters out there who have taken to the coffee culture with obvious gusto, one should remember that coffee has been around since the 15th century. It was the Sufis of ancient Yemen...

    Seattle thinks we invented the US Coffee Culture - certainly we are the home of Starbucks. And that franchise has thrust upon the mainstream middle America a coffee as bland as a burger from McShack. Most locales, and all of my friends, boycott Starbucks - we wont drink the swill - when there are so many other grand choices for select, gourmet, premium coffee. Hold the fru-fru additives and give me my raw, strong, and killer caffeine

    Hi Paul. I feel you. Even though I too have stood amongst the Raglan hipsters and slurped with the best of them. Sue really enjoyed catching up with you guys. Enjoyed your coffee rant. Has inspired me to post a couple of me own rants. I used to write a bit for the local paper. Mainly to counter all the do good whining hippies. Wrote under the name of Albert Einsteinlager. Frank

    From a bar of coffee that we used to break (a rich chicory mixed cake of it like a Bournville bar) in the days of yore into a hot cuppa milk, to the Coffee Bars of today...well the coffee business has indeed made hay! And yup, Jack Nicholson had a thing for that animal processed coffee in The Bucket List movie if I remember rightly! ;) Now how about some Tea? ;) Gin Tonic is another story altogether! :)

    Coffee with a twist and a Mongoose by @Paul Walters

    Hi @Paul Walters, as I was reading this I had to stop and make myself a cup of coffee at 2:30 am! So, I guess I may be up all night now. I have heard of the beans being excreted from the mongoose. I think I heard about it on Andrew Zimmern's show. I can't phantom drinking that [insert choice word] . Not appealing at all. I'm sure it must taste wonderful since so many do love it. There are times I want to purchase an old percolator coffee pot that we used to have brewing on the stove top!

    Great! But, two things about: (1) coffe is always my best partner to compose letters, projects, classes and great ideas; (2) because I drink brazilian's coffe (obviously the best one around the world. Ok, I have no modesty!). So, I suggest that you try it too, and more than that, I would like to invite you for share my favorite one: from Parana's plantations. :)

    Well, at least young office staffers are drinking a form of coffee in the morning instead of their once-traditional can of Mountain Dew. I never could understand that ritual. But, to each his own.

    Very amusing @Paul Walters. I am an avid coffee fan. I tell people I like my coffee to be clear as mud and strong enough that a spoon will stand up in it. I like my coffee black, but I also like lattes, cappuccinos, espresso, etc.

    Oh for a good cuppa coffee. Increasingly rare these days. Not the milkshake coffees of Howard Schultz. Only Clooney could make drinking that dainty little glass cup of Nespresso look good. My little pinky would be up in the air. Great read as always.

    Someone had asked me, "Can you make coffee jelly?" Honestly, I don't know how to make one. But with so many resources available nowadays, the "no" quickly turned to a "No, but I'll soon find out how!"

    Voila - coffee jelly with cream!

    #3 @Jahanara Hoque Thanks for reading. While Friends is still very popular overseas and played on prime time - it is nearly left the air waves in America - hell, as long as I have been out of the country How I Met Your Mother may no longer be relevant either - I should have switched gears to Big Bang
