Thanks Alex! I'll give the expressos a shot. I recently bought that "double shot" can from starbucks, but i can never really tell if they do anything. Funny you mention greek coffee, I'm greek and I remember it being around as a kid but they would scare the living hell out of me and tell me if I drank any of it it will "stunt my growth" and i will never grow up. Eternal youth sounds nice thinking about it.

Cuban coffee's some fun stuff, too. That's if you have access to it. Sadly, there is none in Virginia Beach. :(

Yasou! I'm greek too! Dad still drinks the coffee from time to time (although he's had to cut back on the caffiene). I loved the stuff as a kid.

I prefer Peet's Coffee over Starbucks, because it has a more robust flavor. I do have a Starbucks bean grinder at home, though. There's something great about the daily ritual of grinding beans and brewing coffee in the morning.

I also drank a lot of coffee as a kid, even though people told me it would stunt my growth, but I still grew to be fairly tall, especially for being Japanese. Hmm, maybe I would have had a basketball career if not for all that UCC Ice Coffee...

Oh man, don't I know it! :D I've been drinking it since I was little, too. Might explain why I can drink a regular cup of coffee and go to straight to sleep with no problem.

Yes! Finally someone who is as tolerant of the ol' java as I am. People always think I'm lying when I tell them I drink a hot venti before bed.

It is a curious thing to me, people's natural tolerances for caffeine. I've been drinking coffee for nigh two years now and all I need to wake right up in the morning is half a cup... :oops:

If you ever go to a vietnamese restaurant they got their indofrench version of ice coffee (cafe suda)--it's a dark roast drip into condensed milk...real sweet but if you use a strong coffee it's nice in a hot city....

which reminds me, a great coffee you can buy at most groceries (i think) is Cafe Du Monde....I used to live in new orleans for a while, coffee and beignets...mmm.

Oh heck ya! I visited once and Cafe Du Monde had some excellent coffee. I've seen it sold at specialty stores once or twice, but I'll keep an eye out for it in other markets.

That Vietnamese stuff sounds pretty tasty, too...

Ugh! Coffee! Can't stand the foul stuff. Tastes almost as bad as the rum and whiskey. My poor tongue cannot stand such rigours.

You all must be real strong to drink all of that stuff. I bet you're so strong, could beat up wild bears, and pizza deliverymen too, if you wanted.

Alas, alack, alakazam, the coffee is not for me.
I have no golden guns
and I did not shoot
Joe Paradise.

This means that if I need caffeine to keep me awake, I have to drink fizzy coca-colas or pepsi. After the 3rd can, you don't even taste it anymore...
It follows the continuity of the third Ziganokum movie. It stars Shrub Mikanore as Ziganokum and Bizzorum. With Johothin Griggor as Nebulox.

You forgot wrestlin' gators and outrunning cheetahs. Otherwise, you're right on the money. ;)

Yikes! Funny stuff! I never did get the whole "tall" thing. Venti means twenty in Italian, but I never have checked to see if the "ventis" are actually twenty oz. They'd better be lest the squirrel be proven right.
