Default How Important Is Coffee?

Coffee...

Elixar of life...?

Just another beverage...?

A drug to be avoided...?

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.

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.

I think coffee is fairly disgusting, and the caffeine is easily procurable from a number of other easily accessible sources. So for me, it's almost entirely irrelevant (I enjoy the scent of coffee preparation, otherwise it would be completely irrelevant).

I guess it is a matter of taste and opinion. While driving long distances, I find a 24 ounce cup of good coffee in the cupholder makes an excellent driving companion. And the cups of coffee I had at Burney Brothers Steakhouse (I think that is correct) just outside the gate of the Royal Navy base at Portsmouth in the UK, with a layer of real cream on the top are some of the best that I have had. I also appreciate a good hot cup of tea, along with Coca-Cola.

I have never have liked alcohol of any sort, and I got sick of the smell of stale beer in college. Which is for the best, as now I could not drink it if I wanted, while coffee is fully okay.

My copy, published by Avon Book, Copyright 1967, Fifth Printing, has it on the bottom of page 73 and begins with, "I drank half a cup, burned my mouth and spat out the grounds. Coffee comes in five descending stages: ..."

One of my favourite Heinlein books, next to Starship Troopers.

It is a drug to be avoided.

I don't like it anyways and my fiancee's actively allergic.
