    Yup, Paul will be very happy to hear that his web site is being used to help people feel more secure and be more alert … by finding new morning coffees. ;)

    I might have to drive all the way up there to try it. I don't much care for star bucks. I usually like a small homey type atmosphere. When I lived in bellingham washington we had a very cozy little coffee shop where about six of us would meet every morning for a cafine recharge.

    Amen, snowbound! :D One thing I've always admired about them, especially back when I was driving cab nights, is they have an uncanny sense for good new locations, areas with a lot of traffic but no other all-nighters for miles.

    Compare that with the competition here, both "name" and small, especially downtown -- at one point there were no fewer than 8 coffee shops in a 3-block stretch, 3 of which were all at the same intersection. Not surprisingly, all but a couple are no longer around.

    I wonder how many million or billion gallons of coffee are consumed each year worldwide? o_O I think it might run into at least the million catagory just from Wilders members alone. :D

    If you are thinking gallons what the individual little beans how many of them gave their life for our caffine rush. The study at the bottom is from 2002

    now wait a minute, 7011 beans in a 132lb bag and your calc says they weigh 53lbs each. You may want to invest in a new calculator.


    0.0188275 is what mine says.

    You must have put a nine volt batterie in a 11/2 volt calc. How much coffee will a 53lb bean make, You would have to use a brush mulcher to grind it. But what a pot of coffee. You just wanted to fill up my water tower coffee pot.[move] :D :D :D[/move]

    Interesting chart -- especially since Canada isn't even on it. Admittedly Canada's got a lot of tea drinkers, like the U.K. which barely made it onto the chart.

    All right!! Drink up. Coffee may have more antioxidants that tea or chocolate:

    I like that chart, but question its accuracy, also the accuracy of the assertion only 1/4 of the adult population drinks coffee.

    For one thing, look where Italy is in per capita consumption. My experience is that Italians are big coffee drinkers. In fact I knew this Italian woman that explained her habit to me this way: "I grew up in an Italian household. When I was a kid, I used to put coffee in my cerial in the morning".


    That said, the coffee you drink is like filtered spring water compared to what I drink. Nuff said.
