On Coffee...


"As soon as coffee is in your stomach, there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move...similes arise, the paper is covered. Coffee is your ally and writing ceases to be a struggle." --- de Balzac (1799-1859)

Amen! If it weren't for God's gift of coffee there would be no seminary for me, I'd have failed out two years ago. Thanks for the quote Dr. Cook, I'll use it frequently.

As I am sipping my coffee at 10:29 at night, trying to write a paper, I echo Steve's sentiments!

My brother in law just gave up coffee; I don't know how he could do it!

If I might make a plea . . . one should try both coffee and tea with a French press. It makes the coffee and tea come alive. I have a French press that I paid $$$ and I have not regretted the money I paid for it not a single time. Get the beans whole and grind them yourself - keep them in the freezer when you are not grinding. Likewise, I only buy Earl Grey Silver tips and keep them in the freezer as well. Great for cold days and for warming up the throat right before a lecture.

I first experienced the French Press in Scottland, and I could not agree more about its advantages. We were staying at a fancy place, and each afternoon they would offer to "organize a tea" for us, which would include coffee, scones with clotted cream, and the works. Unforgettable... --S.
