Best cappucino I've had was in Holland. I had no idea those could be so tasty. The American ones tend to be so bitter and burnt tasting.

It must have been the copper pennies in the cup that reduced the bitterness. <grin>

Actually Bolivars \:\)

BTW, gas was the equivalent of about $0.05 per gallon in Venezuela, at that time.

I'm gonna sound like a coffee newbie, but I've taken a liking to the Cracker Barrel offerings. Creamy and smooth. The flavored offerings aren't too bad either. Yeah, I know it's preground and not exotic, but it's tasty!

Hawaiian Kona, Jamaican Blue Mountain.

Those will spin your propellers hard and taste great.

Blue Mountain claims to be produce the finest coffee beans in the world.

There are some crazy ways to brew coffee.

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Sean, you got me beat. I've never set foot in a Starbucks or similar.

I do have one of those Cuisinart Grind and Brew into the carafe things, but I just put Sam's Club-brand beans into it.

Hey, wait:

I do mix it half and half between regular and decaf beans. Does that make me a barista? \:\)

Never been in a Starbucks or the like either. Can’t stand coffee not even the smell of it.

What about tea, or are you breaking Chris's heart, too?
