Hello

I hope I can add something positive to the forum.

    Lol, yep, love coffee, only one way to drink it though, black as sin! ;-)
  • FrothyCoffeeManFrothyCoffeeMan Member Posts: 46
    No no no noooooo
    Black is great but consider a latte with raspberry syrup, a hazelnut macchiato, a black forest mocha or my own creation the after eight, a short black mocha with mint syrup.

    Guess who has Starbucks in the back of a van? :-D

    Why? Why would you do that!? caffeine is the one and only reason we drink coffee! ;-)
    margotGuroooLostInTranslation
  • FrothyCoffeeManFrothyCoffeeMan Member Posts: 46
    Lol decaf is a weird one
    Mostly drunk by the pregnant, the insomniac and people prone to headaches and migraines.
    I have a customer that drinks a 16oz soya latte with a half shot of decaf.
    Every time she orders one, I say to her "admit it you don't like coffee, you just want to hang out with the cool kids"

    Early coffee houses were stigmatized as dens of political agitators. Liberty! Fraternity! Jittery!

    Heck, boil it down to a black bar of caffeine and I'd eat it! ;-)

    From Starbucks I will take a quad grande Americano with extra room for half and half. Don't go for that froufrou flavoring stuff. ;-)

    @margot 4 shots in one drink?

  • rancorbaitrancorbait Manitoba CanadaMember Posts: 1,850
    @margot That's what I'm talking about!

    ^ Just last weekend I had 5 coups of coffee in one evening, was it too much? Probably, but I had no problem sleeping :-)

    I think that's equal to about 2 cups of coffee. Typically I only have one cup of coffee when I brew at home. It's really not that much caffeine or I would definitely feel it.
  • indigoboxindigobox Member Posts: 470
    I drink a lot of coffee but not sure I could handle 4 shots in the same cup. I think the standard here is 2 shots per cup

    Silly Lego/coffee peeps lol
    I can't believe this thread got renamed!
    Very funny

    It was my misfortune to try a single shot soya cappuccino yesterday.......

    The therapy required may eat into my 2014 Lego budget :-(

    Luckily it's my business and the 4 double espressos required to rid me of the foulness that is soya were on the house!
    (My accountant hates me)

    Currently in a Lego Death Star vs eccentric straight razor purchase dilemma.

    Similar costs, we have a small house so the personal hygiene, morning life or death scenario is currently winning over the "where are you going to put it?" Lego reality.

    And even though I can turn the straight razor into a work tool, like my Lego.....
    It going to be slightly harder to justify to HMRC and the accountant.

    Hmmmmmm

    Ooh squirrel!!!!

    Possibly, or maybe just not enough? It's a fine line there! ;)

    Actually, I was on my semi-smart phone (doesn't do on-line very well), when the car repair tech told me I needed a new thingy, a whatchamacallit, a new jim-jig, and a thingamabob. That just threw me for a loop, especially when I just expected needing an oil change and possibly a new tire! Guess I hit the 'post comment' a bit too hard! ;)

    Hopefully you weren't at a quickie lube type place because they always run that scam.. especially on women.
  • rancorbaitrancorbait Manitoba CanadaMember Posts: 1,850
    @LegoMom1 Good point, can't have to much coffee! :-)
