Coffee makes us

severe

and

grave

and

philosophical.


Jonathan Swift (1722)

Dennis loves espresso...what do you think of iced coffees? Is there a 'best' way to make them? Dennis has never tried one.

I'm lost if I don't have my morning coffee. In fact I drink a pot a day, but I'm not really into the fancy stuff one gets at Starbucks.

Now if we had invaded Iraq for coffee instead of Oil I'd be buying stock in Halliburton. But instead I'm buying coffee in super markets.

Take care and ...

God Bless.

kurt: Hey, Thanks for the link. although an espresso is ours of choice early am, a French Press is tops in our book. And yes, eyeballing the amount of coffee to brew and a Burr Grinder are essential! ; )

dennis: Hmmmmm, in the summer we will have an iced Breve ( a couple shots of espresso over ice and about a 1/2 cup or less of half and half. An iced Americano would be the espresso over ice with whatever amount of water you wanted in your cup. Hope that helps....

dcb: Thanks for seeing the obvious!

anon: I hear ya and Thanks for popping by! As you can see, rather than being tortured continuously by all the BS politics, I'm trying to enjoy this life a bit also.

Bonjour Coffee,

I wonder if Swift's coffee had a different taste from our's.

How do you find those astounding quotations?

The coffee served to me is swill--must be what Swift had in mind...

georg: I bet it was different! Hard to say better or worse though at this stage of the game.

dws: You need to find a better coffee maker! ; )
