RE: All things coffee
I prefer drinking coffee most of the time although im no connoisseur.

For convenience (and price) I drink instant coffee, normally Nescafe or Kenco.... when I am in my Town Center I occasionally pop into Costa-Coffee to appreciate there vanilla cappuccinos and overpriced pastries.

If I have a full English Breakfast then it has accompanied by a nice cup of tea (blasphemy to some I imagine)

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

You might want to calculate the price per cup of that instant stuff.
I think you'll find you're not saving any money.Consider

Does a full English Breakfast include English Muffins? Drooling

RE: All things coffee
My girlfriend is an assistant manager at Starbucks, and I've become very addicted to coffee. She gets a markout each week, and brings home a few bags of coffee. My coffee tastes have expanded sevenfold over the last 6 months. I've also discovered the only good way to drink coffee.

Black.

But Almond Joy creamer is delicious.

RE: All things coffee
Sorry I forgot to say that I actually do enjoy my cup of coffee in the morning. And my late afternoon cup. What I meant by love hate was that it's taken me a lot of trial and error to find the cup I love. I sort of learned to love it, but when I started drinking it it was purely for it's regenerative properties.

Sorry Chas.

RE: All things coffee
Ah. Coffee. The world would be a sadder place without it.

Starbuck's Cafe Verona? Yup yup yup. Having a cup right now, as a matter of fact.

I'll have to try Peet's Sulawesi-Kalosi, Erx. People in your neck of the woods really know their coffee. (And I'm looking forward to walking into my local Peet's and saying, "A pound of Sulawesi-Kalosi, please." I love how that sounds!)

Coffee is drunk black. No milk, no cream, no sugar. Ever.

Well . . . there is Irish Coffee. But that's another animal entirely.

Not the least interesting thing about coffee, I find, is the variable local terminology that goes with it. In Australia I had to learn what "flat black" and "flat white" meant; trying to order coffee the way I do at my L.A. Starbucks only drew blank stares. Even in Seattle it was different: a friend clued me in to asking for a "tall drip." Maybe I haven't been listening, but I've never heard that used in So. Cal. Here it would tend to refer to a 6' 2" loser.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.
