Could be ;)

A friend gave me a grinder and a whole box of different bags of gourmet coffee beans as a gift recently... so I finally decided to give it a try this week.

WOW!~ The first bag I decided to try is labled "Ridgetop Roast" and it is *excellent*. I usually like Hazelnut coffee (not flavored creamers - yuck) so I wasnt sure if I would like "regular coffee" but this definitely has a distinct flavor of its own. LOVIN' it!

... describes this one as "crisp, winey and buttery"

I love coffee but my gallbladder doesn't, so only have it occasionally. I found Helmut Sacher coffee (just like in Vienna) which is smooth (the way I like my wine too! - maybe those marketing people have something there after all) and not bitter. Affordable too if you only have it once in a while.

P.S. By the way, how does one buy you a cup of coffee? :?

Hi Viviane,

I have a "Buy Lynn a Coffee" option on my blog at http://www.clicknewz.com . Is this what you are referring to? You'll see it in the right sidebar if you scroll down just a bit. Are you asking how to set that up... or -?

I never could stand the smell of coffee ( much less the taste), and since I quit smoking it is even worse.

My sense of smell came back with a vengance after I quite smoking.

These days, I can't even go down the soap isle or the candle isle or the coffee isle in the grocery store.

I have allergic type reactions to the smells.
I am sitting here right now, suffering like I had the flu because my MOM put on some type of perfume/body spray yesterday, that affects me the same way.

I love having a cup of coffee first thing in the morning and being on the PC working and checking on things....not only is it good for waking up but it is very relaxing! My Partner says I make the best cup of coffee :lol: and I have a certain way I make it also....but yes I do drink coffee everyday and if I can squeeze in two cups I do...normally one because I work a full time job and we cannot have coffee at work on the floor at your desk...bleh :roll:

:D Ha haaa, love this question and my answer is Yes I certainly do, can't survive without it! I don't smoke so I guess this is my version of 'nicotine addiction' in my case "Caffeine"!

In my days in the British Army, I had a good friend who hated coffee but insisted on "Twinings Earl Grey Tea" the bag could only be in the cup of boiling water for 12 Seconds :shock: and was not to be disturbed during that process..... I suppose this doesn't help with the rumours that the British can be quite eccentric at times! oh! and for all you Mel Gibson and Galipolli Movie lovers out there, the bit where the British Army won't come to the rescue of the cut off Australian Infantry because they are drinking their 'Tea' is a myth and simply hollywoods interpretation, the real facts are the actual British Unit the Movie depicts drinking Tea was the actual Unit that lost 3/4 of it's men saving the Australian Unit from the enemy!!!

Ahem.... Yes I do drink "Coffee" :oops:

Though I'm not much of a caffeine person, I would occasionally try coffee when in desperate need of energy. It would make me feel terrible - make me jittery, upset my stomach and give me 'have to move' energy which isn't helpful for working at the computer.

I recently tried Yerba Mate tea and love the 'effects'. Gives me mental 'alert' energy without the other side effects. But warning.. it does not taste good lol.

You better believe it :wink:

Some recent research shows that coffee is very good for you. Look here:

http://men.webmd.com/features/coffee-new-health-food

The article heading says "Men's Health", but I suspect that girls can drink it too :)

I must be living proof - been drinking so much coffee over the years that my coffee drinking became somewhat legendary locally.....

I used to sit at the local bar and drink coffee while the rest of the boys & girls drank themselves silly with beer. I was usually the only one left with enough sense & energy to drag 'em all home :)...

Enjoy your coffee

Postby Cynthia » Fri Nov 16, 2007 5:08 am

A friend sent this to me today. It arrived just as I was reading this thread so I had to share it with you all. :)


A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life. He offered his guests coffee. The professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite, and told them to help themselves to the coffee.

All the students had a cup of coffee in hand. The professor said, "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves; that is the source of your problems and stress. Be assured that the cup itself, adds no quality to the coffee in most cases. The cup is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink.What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup; but you consciously went for the best cups... and then began eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee, and the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define nor change the quality of Life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us."God brews the coffee, not the cups..........enjoy your coffee

Thanks for sharing this! I don't know how many different ways I've tried to get this same message across to people around me. What a wonderfully written way!

coffee coffee coffee, java java java You bet I not only drink it but require it at intervals throughout the day. I call it my brain juice- the shock therapy I need to jolt creativity back into focus.

It's all Starbuck's fault !
