Hi and welcome, May. I'm having trouble reading some of your text-message style posts. And what does KITS stand for? Thanks.

In my teens I drank my coffee double-double. When I was in third year at U of Toronto, living in married students' residence, another young woman and I went out to her mom's place to make use of her canning kettle. Hani (Jane's mom) was just serving breakfast when we arrived, VERY early, and offered us coffee. She carefully poured me half a cup, and I thought "If there isn't enough coffee, I don't need any" but hadn't had time to voice this thought before she came around with the hot milk. And I was IN LOVE! No more double-double for this girl! - from double-double to half-and-half strong coffee and hot milk. And I still like it best like that. That's what a latte is, although that's not what Jane called it.
I also like foamed milk with a little grated dark chocolate on top of the coffee. Oh, and my friend Carol's homemade biscotti.....

I'm of the opinion that anything sweet put into, on, around, or next to in your mouth completely masks the subtle, *actual flavor coffee has to offee.

> addiction

no question, but I know people who drink a lot more coffee than I do. I try to be careful with my caffeine intake.

Chocolate too? I may not be able to control myself. Speaking of sweet... after seeing the movie Chocolat with Juliette Binoche, I went on a web search for a good chocolate/hot pepper drink recipe. I found a few promising ones, but for safety's sake, I am waiting for the weather to chill down and the wood stove to warm up before I try them. When I can, I like warming things on the cast iron of the stove rather than the electric stove. I understand that a version of the drink was important to the Maya and Aztecs cultures.
As far as coffee... here's an opinion that I share: Ink Spots, Java Jive About an eon and a half ago, when I was a Cub Scout, our Den Mother taught us to sing this song. They've Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Brazil This is a Rosemary Clooney site, but we learned it from a Frank Sinatra 78. We had electricity, so we didn't have to crank the record player. It was part of a skit. Each Den performed one having to do with a different country. At the time, I had yet to have a coffee, but have made up for it since.
bty: Is there a more apropos toast when drinking coffee?

A really well-made ristretto is unbeatable, imo. Pehaps with a small slab of dark (70%+) chocolate as accompaniment.
