Good article, passed it on to my 85 year old Grandma who has been addicted to coffee forever....wouldn't be Grandma's house if it didn't have a pot on every day....none of the fancy stuff just good old folgers for her! I on the other hand I have grown up in the Pacific Northwest were Starbucks started and have my own Latte' addiction!

I'm already getting addicted. it started out when I had work shifts at Mcdonalds starting at 5am, and we got free coffee (it wasn't good coffee, but it did the trick) and now, at my new job there's a starbucks inside and I love the mocha frappucinos. my parents have never been coffee drinkers, so there's no coffee machine in the house I'm really feeling the need to go out and buy one. I heard about somebody who created a coffee machine that you can attach to your compter and run off the power supply. I think that would be the ultimate retoucher's computer accesory

Thumbs down

I'll confess - I'd just hook up an IV if I could. I lived 10 years in Portland, OR and in the Pacific Northwest you just can't NOT be a coffee drinker (I think it's against the law there or something )

I have a hard time finding good coffee here, so I just drink whatever's handy, but my favorite is about any nice dark roast. And I like it strong. I think I've become immune to caffiene though. I can drink 2 pots of coffee and still fall right to sleep. I'm also hooked on Mountain Dew (cowboy coffee).

But, I like tea too. I used to go to a really nice British Tea Garden when I lived in Portland. As far as tea goes, my favorite is Chai with milk (Chai Latte).

Hi Alan
I know what you mean. I am a coffee drinker, but my mom was a tea lover. New York is anti-tea in my experience. As you stated, not only is it not an automatic refill, but often even the finer restaurants consider microwaved water "tea".
For a country that started over tea troubles (I know that's not the full reason) we sure have forgotten.

Tea - ginger biscuits

Also Cyprus coffee is nice - sounds a bit like the turkish type - but served with a glass of water - lovely on those hot mediteranian days - Also serves as a serious caffine boost

David - I think this is what you want - The Caffeine Machine

I recently got our espresso machine out of storage and have been starting the mornings off with double shots of espresso!
