I guess coffee is important to some of you………I thought it was 'the term for the one on whom I cough'

Here's something to think while you drink the wretched stuff.

Coffee doesn't taste like its aroma because saliva kills half the flavour.

Coffee beans are not beans but fruit pits…. Although the confusion started long ago. The word coffee come from the arabic for 'wine of the bean'

The only thing I like about Starbucks is it spends more on health insurance for its staff than it does on coffee beans.

The world's first web-cam was set up in Cambridge to monitor the status of the office coffee pot.

There's a coffee shop in France where not saying 'please or thank you' makes the coffee served more expensive.

 On a whim King Gustave III of Sweden commuted the death sentence of identical twins on the condition that one drank a pot of tea and the other coffee for the rest of their lives. 

 

Oh and appropriately …..one of the the world's most expensive coffees is made from the dung of Thai elephants.

 

I'd imagine your typical right-on New York advertising company would lap the stuff up.

'Oh man this is some shit.'

'Best fecal matter I've tasted…... I'll have another dung skinny latte"

I love both. Coffee may grow on you - but I realize it's not for everyone.

Same here. I've had one decent cup of coffee in my whole life and that was some incredibly expensive stuff which took longer to make than drink (served in tiny coffee cups too).

No idea how folk can drink the filth that Starbucks etc serve but then they also fail miserably to serve decent tea either. No idea how they do it but even when straight from the machine the water is always lukewarm.a-hard-days-night-paul-3

I've always wanted to like coffee, but I never have been able to get into it. It smells good brewing.

Agreed. Not everyone can handle coffee. Starbucks must hate people like me, because I don't drink half caff soy mocha double lattes with caramel foam and cinnamon sprinkled on top. Just buy a candy bar and get on with it.

For me, I start the day drinking copious amounts of black coffee made with good old Eight O'Clock brand Columbian coffee and spring water brewed in a percolator. As soon as it is done, it is transferred to a thermos to prevent it from burning. Yummmmm. For an afternoon pick-me-up, it's green tea with lemon, mainly for the antioxidants.

One of these days, I really must try brewing a real pot of tea using fresh leaves just to see what all the fuss is about. It sounds good. There is a tea shop close to where I get my hair cut, soooooo...

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Of that, I have no doubt! You probably have energy and enthusiasm to spare.

For me, it's not a question of need but rather a question of like. I really enjoy coffee.

All this coffee talk reminded me of this, which I saw a couple of weeks ago:

I'm spotting a trend here: lovers of the Beatles hate coffee--except for Zig of course, he enjoys being different.  I'm team Zig; I enjoy the smell, taste and ambience of coffee.  I hope that doesn't tarnish my Beatle-loving reputation.

 There's a reason why so many advertisers use an image similar to this:

It seems to be a modern universal apotheosis of happiness.  45 years ago it was a warm gun.

Thanks @georgiewood - glad to have you on the team. But, you do know, her cup could have tea in it...or warm milk...ovaltine perhaps?

I've already given my opinion on this elsewhere (in this thread, I think), but Ahhh Girl pretty much summed it up in case you missed it.
