    By the way, did you know that coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world right after oil? Time to invade Columbia, I say!

    Oh, no! No, sir, it's just plain old normal coffee with milk. It's a bad cafe latte imitation with foamy milk, since I only had normal coffee.

    No, wait: What is "Linda Richman"?

    Heh. The first "real" job I'll be applying for will be "Coffee Concepts Manager" with the company I already work for part-time. Wish me luck :hyper:

    Do you always photograph your beverages before drinking them? Do you keep a beverage journal?

    My favorite bean to buy is the Brazil Santos varietal from Central Market in Austin. Since I live in Waco that doesn't happen too often. Aside from that I buy the Cubita beans from Austin's Ruta Maya which is carried at my local grocery store. Costa Rica's La Minita is also very good when I can find it. I just found out about a little independent coffee/cigar store here in Waco though that I might have to check out. They might have something good.

    You know we've had several coffee threads here before.

    Yes.








    :) Actually, I took this picture to make a friend of mine envious. He REALLY loves coffee, but did not have any at home yesterday.
     
  12. ...Too much coffee man(the song not the comic strip- although that's cool, too), by Bob Dorough (Conjunction Junction, etc). Also, does anyone find, like me, that the taste often doesn't hold a candle to the smell- unless the smell is less than good, in which case it's many times a perfect match? Wait, I got more- just gonna go get another cup- be right back...

    Italian cappucino=only cappucino worth drinking.

    While my family was visiting Italy, we stayed at this Bed and Breakfast in Rome. The woman who ran it was very nice and I had a cappucino for breakfast everyday that was better than any I've ever had in the U.S. I'm sure it was some cheap, store-bought instant mix stuff or something that she served us, but still. It was damn fine cappu.
     
  14. I'm drinking a crappy coffee from a machine, right now. :meh:

    I love coffee. I love the smell, I love the look, I love making it, I love drinking it, experimenting with different blends and combinations of sugar/cream/black/milk/soy milk/chocolate...etc.

    But

    I don't drink it anymore. Because I enjoy it so much it's really easy for me to get hooked on it, and when I am I feel like crap most of the time because I haven't had a cup. So I avoid it. Which is easy enough in boston where it's all fast togo coffee that's generally nothing to write home about. But at home I make all my coffee with a french press, which is, imo, the best way to do it, and the whole process from start to finish is something that I relish.

    I'm going to go suck a coffee flavored candy now :oops:

    Hey there are fantastic decaf blends available, if you're worried about caffeine addiction.

    Hey, what's wrong with caffeine addiction? :hyper:

    As my friend put it, "I'm not a student anymore. I'm a machine that converts coffee into credits."
     
  18. I totally thought this was a thread about appreciating international coffee.

    I'll have to look into it, I've never really liked decaf much, of what I've had, but I admittedly never had much, because, :bag: the caffeine jolt is another reason why I like coffee.
