    I have no idea who comes up with this silliness (it could be me, for all I know:p), but there it is...National Coffee Month...in the US!

    So to all you coffee freaks out there...it is required that during this month that you get wired to the eyeballs!

    Enjoy your coffee!:D

    "Wired To The Eye-Balls". Nice description….


    I think I can manage that……….most worthy ambition. Today was a small, limited, experiment…….a day whence I consumed a mere five double espressos. However, I have no doubt at all that I shall manage to exceed that on subsequent occasions…..

    You make my espresso consumption seem quite minimal!

    Any excuse works for me, too.

    When I'm not experimenting with other types, I usually drink 2 cups of Columbian every day, every month! :D

    But this is NATIONAL coffee month...which, by law, requires that everybody over the age of 14 drink a lot of really good coffee.

    At least, I think that's what it means...:confused:

    :p

    I do not understand how I can drink more coffee than I'm drinking already? I'm tapped out.

    Ahh, National Coffee month. What a fine month it is to honor our most cherished and favorite beverage.

    I believe I will try to make a different type of coffee every chance I get this month while referencing The Great Coffee App for iOS.

    Tonight I made a Flat White, which is a double shot of espresso and 3-4oz of frothed milk wherein you remove the micro foam and pour in the milk. It tasted quite nice.

    I got lazy over the summer, put away my French press and have been using K-cups all the time. Lately it's mostly 8 O’Clock Original (which makes a fairly strong cup that I doctor with a hefty pour of skim milk). I bought a 72-count crate of those things not long ago, but maybe in honor of National Coffee Month, I need to get back to grinding some selected beans myself, at least on weekends.

    8 O'Clock Original? No wonder you have to drown it in milk.

    Beer. Really, it's beer. I wouldn't joke about a thing like that.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_in_the_United_States
    The United States produced 196 million barrels of beer in 2012, and consumes roughly 28 US gallons (110 L) of beer per capita annually.[

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economics_of_coffee#Consumption
    In the year 2000 in the US, coffee consumption was 22.1 gallons (100.468 litres) per capita.​

    Oh, well, I don't drink. I despise the stuff.

    Anyone looking for an intriguing ten-minute read about coffee ought to take a look at Alexis Madrigal's Atlantic piece on Blue Bottle Coffee; its founder James Freeman; and its efforts to bring it particularly delicious New Orleans Iced Coffee to the wider world.

    Even if you don't like iced coffee, its a fascinating portrait of a coffee idealist and his mission to bring his product - and his company - to the wider world.
