What do they do with all that caffeine, anyway?
I'm not sure *how they do it but they sell it to pharmaceutical companies to use in a drugs that would otherwise put you to sleep.

Understood, Kits, and maybe you could learn to separate the two styles -- standard and text-msg -- thinking of them as two dialects or something (says the former ESL teacher). Is English your native language?
As for coffee, my favorite (affordable) is Brazilian. Colombian is too acidic. Usually with a dollop of white and a tiny bit of sugar, unless it's a Brazilian estate, then I drink it black. And I like the roast somewhere between Folger's (too wimpy) and Starbucks (too burnt).

re: bad for health -- I don't think there's any real evidence that coffee is bad for you, except that it is addictive.
re: decanting -- I've always wanted to build a centrifuge to do this, or chance across some old piece of lab equipment.
re: misc. methods -- I've also thought it would be fun to set up a vacuum flask for brewing something like espresso.

Wandering through the coffee link someone posted, I found out that my coffeemaker is called a Vesuvio and works with steam! I'd never stopped to think about the method, I confess. We call it "Italian coffeemaker", and it's more or less the regular stovetop coffeemaker in Spain, although more and more people have electric ones now.
So, definitely Vesuvio coffee for me, with a bit of hot milk. As for chocolate, black and organic is what I like best. 70% works just fine!
I am very intrigued by those "chocolate and hot pepper" drinks y'all have been mentioning, and thinking I'd like to try that. Any recipes you might care to share, here or by PM?

Coffee, coffee everywhere and never a drop to drink.
I plan to start the Tea Drinkers Liberation Front. First up against the wall will be the heretics at conferences who take an urn, which was used for coffee yesterday, rinse it once and fill it with "hot" water for tea. BLEAH!
Next to go will be the waiters who bring you a little tin teapot and don't tell you that they have hidden the teabag behind it instead of putting it inside. That way by the time you think the tea has steeped it's too late to start.
TEA DRINKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!!
Rebel against the coffee conspiracy.
LEAVES NOT BEANS!
pardon me, I need to go have a cuppa and a lie-down.
