Funny thing is I got an error on the wiki link so I changed it to the bing link and clicked submit. Somehow we ended up with a thread with each of the links.

I'm going to get some coffee and not let it bother me.

Thanks for that fascinating bit of history. I had never heard of that, before.

Nay, shade grown Ethiopian dark roast. With all the usual yada yada about fair trade, organic, worm friendly, etc.

I feel a little bit holier just drinking it.

Would you pay more for less?


I always wondered what they do with the caffeine. It would be a real waste to throw it away. Maybe that is where they get the horsepower for caffeine shampoo and lip balm. A sort of upcycling kind of thing.

Pay more for less? Heck, no! That's why I'm always tipping strippers to put more clothes on!


I think they press the caffeine into those no-doze pills.

But you aren't paying them more for less, you are paying them more for more. More money for more skin.


Does anybody know if Emus drink coffee?

See? Not really a bad plan, just not thought all the way through and/or tempered by wisdom.
