    For some reason, the Finnish Rail has some of the best regular coffee I have ever drank. Everytime I'm going somewhere, I jump straight into the restaraunt car for a cuppa, or four :cool:

    It's mostly an Indian thing, they take the beans (after they are dried and store them loosely in these big sheds. They keep them stored through the monsoon season and, because they are stored with a lot of room for the moist air to circulate around the beans, they absorb a lot of mositure and swell to about double their original size. The taste of the coffee is very rich and smooth.

    Oh yeah, the coffee in Amsterdam absolutely rocks!

    And they have the condensed milk that has a slight yellow-brown tint. It's great in really dark, strong coffee.

    I had some organic, shade-grown coffee when I was in Tucson, AZ about a year ago. Can't remember the brand right now, but it was blissful. Also had some great coffee when I was in Nicaragua, but usually Tanzanian Peaberry is my fave (if it's not dark roasted).

    So, if the only coffee I ever really drink is at IHOP and Dunkin Donuts, I haven't lived a full coffee-life? I didn't think there was a whole coffee "scene".

    Man, I am not hip at all, then. Two sugars and two creams per cup. Maybe that's why I like it...
