more coffee, please

A photo of a cup of coffee.

Is it possible to get a cup of coffee-flavored coffee anymore in this country? What happened with coffee? Did I miss a meeting? They have every other flavor but coffee-flavored coffee. They have mochaccino, frappaccino, cappuccino, al pacino…Coffee doesn’t need a menu, it needs a cup.-Denis Leary

Coffee falls into the stomach … ideas begin to move, things remembered arrive at full gallop … the shafts of wit start up like sharp-shooters, similies arise, the paper is covered with ink …-Honoré de Balzac

Write a lot. And finish what you write. Don’t join writer’s clubs and go sit around having coffee reading pieces of your manuscript to people. Write it. Finish it. I set those rules up years ago, and nothing’s changed.-Jerry Pournelle

The powers of a man’s mind are directly proportioned to the quantity of coffee he drinks – Sir James Mackintosh

Decaffeinated Coffee. It’s useless warm brown water. – Heard on David Letterman

Ah! How sweet coffee tastes! Lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine! -“Coffee Cantata”, J.S. Bach

Last comes the beverage of the Orient shore, Mocha, far off, the fragrant berries bore. Taste the dark fluid with a dainty lip, Digestion waits on pleasure as you sip. – Pope Leo XII

If you want to improve your understanding, drink coffee; it is the intelligent beverage. – Sydney Smith

Coffee leads men to trifle away their time, scald their chops, and spend their money, all for a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking nauseous puddle water. – The Women’s Petition Against Coffee (1674)

Just around the corner,
There’s a rainbow in the sky.
So let’s have another cup o’ coffee,
And let’s have another piece o’ pie.
– Irving Berlin, 1932

  1. I enjoyed them all, thank you for sharing. I am currently “coffee deprived”, as I’m suffering with a cold and tea is just going down better, but I miss my coffee. The pretty tan color, the sweet sweetness, the warmth as it fills me with comfort and sanity. And what better to have with your cinnamon bun? Tea with honey just doesn’t make the same statement.

    Save me a cup,please.

  2. I was never a big coffee drinker until a few years ago when I started working at the local library. I got to look forward to that morning ritual–come in, pour myself a cup, add some cream and sugar, and get that nice warm lift that was just the right way to start my day. I did this nearly every morning for two years before I discovered the awful truth . . . It was decaf!

Hi! Wanna say something? Go ahead. Be nice.
