How Important Is Coffee?
 
Coffee...

Elixar of life...?

Just another beverage...?

A drug to be avoided...?

What are your feelings about Coffee...?

A totally unnecessary vice...

I'd post more, but mine just finished brew'n and I like to add me Jamaican Rum while she's still hot...

Five different grades of Coffee:

Coffee ~ Freshly made

Java ~ Next day

Joe ~ Three days later

Jamoke ~ End of the week

Carbon Remover ~ Sunday before Monday

I admit it is an acquired taste...

Without coffee, I couldn't drive to work

without coffee, 90% of the american work force could not survive the work day.

without coffee (and or donuts), police officers would be unable to perform thei job.

... you get the picture.

Coffee is just as important to the world economy as gasoline.

Love the smell of the beans being roasted; don't object to the smell of good coffee being brewed - but the one time the stuff got to my tongue, it was horrible and I have never permitted it to be that close again. I'm a tea drinker, and don't you DARE think of adulterating it with lemon, sugar, cream, or any of that rot. Well, maybe a touch of lemon, depending on the blend.

Coffee must be Black as Hell,
Strong as Death, and
Sweet as Love...

Since I was young I've kind of had a problem where he smell of coffee often made my head hurt (similar to how cigar smoke also does). In the past I tried to avoid even walking into a Starbucks with friends or family. Its not so bad now that I'm older and, I will occasionally drink tea or chai, but I still avoid coffee because of this.

Any civilised Traveller will sip tea from fine china. And don't forget the tea-cozy and cucumber sandwiches, mind you!

Robert Heinlein's grades of coffee, from Glory Road. I do not have a my copy readily available, or I would give the page number as well.
