Why is my coffee so much better?

I can barely get through with the first cup before I am faced with immediate bowel-evacuation. Work-coffee and store-coffee leave much to be desired, in that regard. Home-coffee packs a punch that cannot be matched! What gives, Foo?

No. But I am putting it through the french press, no sugar, and an ounce or two of Milk of Megnesia.

What's up with that 3/4 empty bottle of Peptol Bismol ?

My Taster's Choice Gourmet Roast instant coffee does the same thing. All I gotta do is smell it and one of the things that makes me grouchy is eliminated, so to speak.

I wonder if it's that you're more physically and mentally relaxed at home? I think there was a similar study done about passing gas at home vs. during the workday.

I likes me my coffee. And, no, I can't taste it in my gut (no tastebuds down there ). I make it 1.5 heapin' teaspoons per standard-size mug, add in whole milk, and I'm set. Smooth, robust, rich, and great-tastin'.

Sounds like you've had some acid problems before. Ever tried Kava? Used to have to EAT that stuff to stay awake when I was a 24/7 sole caregiver.... That shiat sucked bigtime, but was effective without killin' my stomach....

You might have something there. However, my office smells just as bad as my apartment.
