I buy whole Lavazza coffee beans from Italy, then I put them into my Gaggia expresso machine, which grinds, brews, and whips my morning cappuchino. My wife likes hers in bed, but she bought me the machine, so I deliver hers to her in the bed room. It takes two mugs before I can make my first magic Café post.

I prefer my coffee be made from grapes and aged in oak barrels.

If it fits the occasion, sure. Ever heard of a Champagne brunch?

Major Dickason's blend in my french press in my MAGICIAN mug. Black.

I also love a good Sumatran bean if it's a good one.

I drink coffee as immoderately as beer. Who cares where it comes from or what bean variety it's made from? Hot, black, strong, and in any receptacle other than an old boot. I'm a barbarian.

I am ashamed, but I have been known (on hundreds of occasions) to leave the classroom to get a fresh cup. Being a gentlemen, I allow any students who also need fresh cups to go with me. Seldom does this happen.

As far as preferences go, I do like the stronger, bitterer European style of brewing. A typical cup in Germany is between American coffee and espresso.

Espresso is my favorite for taste, but I seldom drink it because my usual demand for plenty of fluids. In Europe espresso is always served with a glass of water. But who drinks water?

Before moving to Europe I used to have my coffee delivered by that mail-order service. Does anyone remember that? Does it still exist or did Starbucks make it obsolete. It was good coffee. The company was Swiss, I think, and started with a "G".

Gevalia is probably right. It's been a long time. But it's not Swiss but Swedish.

The Swedes are MONSTER coffee drinkers. Look it up.

The Italians make a real ritual out of drinking coffee. Expresso machines are quite expensive.

Indeed they do. Been to Italy a few times, and its been a pleasure to observe that...and enjoy the coffee.

The best coffee I have ever had, was in Italy, in Cattolica. In the harbour there was a makeshift coffee stand, constructed from bits of scaffolding and pieces of old tarps. Inside you could find a huge old expresso machine, which looked it'd be straight from a Terry Gilliam film. The toothless lady there looked as she had been there since ancient Rome. But man the espresso and cappucino were great!
