    Coffee Question

    Im horrendously exhausted, with such a long day, and homework that needs to be done. I just brewed up some organic coffee with whatever water I had, and chugged down quite a few cups. I just hope that I didnt over do it with the caffine. How many cups should one not exceed at one sitting?

    Up to 10 cups at one sitting is ok, and quite good for the ol' colon. Unless you're going to bed within the hour, in which case you'll lie in bed, gettin' up every two hours to pee, and wondering why the hell you even give a **** about your colon.

    Coffee is nasty. Instead of making actual coffee, I think I would put all the whole coffee beans into a bowl, pour Hershey's chocolate syrup all over them, and eat them with a spoon like a bowl of cereal. I'm gonna have to try that some time...

    haha. Well I had 5 cups of coffee and fat free milk. For anyone who likes coffee, soymilk (preferrably vanilla) makes the drink super tasty and very smooth,

    Make sure you cook the beans first to make em all mushy or you'll break a tooth

    Oh yeah, no problem. I probably haven't had one since November or early December. But...classes are starting again for me. I'll have a lot more work and studying than last semester, so...anything is possible.

    Heh, not for a couple of years. But they last time it was checked, it was pretty low. I don't remember what the numbers were... I just quit the "Green Go Juice" because it didn't actually help me stay awake or make me smarter or anything. I'd just get all jittery, and then fall asleep in class.

    Ideally, you want to have it in a slow French-style drip over a glass. In the bottom of the glass is something like sweetened condensed milk. When it's done dripping, you stir it up, then pour it over a second glass of ice. <middle finger and thumb, kissed> Magnificent!

    How 'bout cuttin' back on some food with high sodium content (fast food, luncheon meats, non-low-sodium soups). We, at Foo, care about you.

    Putting a coffee bean in each ear will also improve your concentration.

    Indeed, it is, Sistah Siu. You can find this in the "I sit, you work" fashion at any Vietnamese or Thai restaurant.

    [even if it's not on the menu, just ask for it. Like asking for fried shrimp heads or marinated baby octupus at a good sushi/sashimi restaurant]

    I always say -- and please, quote me on this, because it's original --

    coffee, like chocolate, is meant to be consumed with plenty of fat and sugar added.

    Hence, I always take cream (and Splenda, which actually has a better flavor and is easier to use than sugar in coffee)

    P.S. But NEVER, NEVER -- do you understand me? NEVER use FLAVORED CREAM in your coffee!!!

    Coffee Ritual.

    Conical burr grinder set to coarse.

    Run beans through. Place in stainless steel french press.

    Add water that's about 185*F. Start timer.

    Stir with chopstick. Watch as water erupts with foam (the bloom) from the CO2 still outgassing from freshly roasted, perfectly ground coffee beans. Inhale the vapors.

    Wait until timer reaches 4 minutes. Stop stirring.

    Wipe chopstick with a napkin and set it aside.

    Press coffee.

    Pour into a pre-warmed ceramic coffee mug.

    Dump coffee grounds out.

    Disassemble and clean all parts of the coffee press.

    Dry and re-assemble coffee press.

    Put coffee press, chopstick, grinder, and beans away.

    Enjoy pure, strong, rich, flavorful black coffee with absolutely no additives.

    It's almost spiritual. Organic beans roasted locally in small batches, ground as needed, brewed in single servings with precision and care, and savored to the last drip. On average, the above ritual is executed between 4-8 times daily.

    But, I've had at least 20 cups of coffee in a work day when I worked at a place where co-workers knew how to brew coffee and maintain the equipment. It won't hurt you, just make your annoyingly frequent urinal visits smell and look funny.
