LOL...not in all cases, ever tried Dutch or Danish coffee. More milk then
coffee. Some Swedes drink it this way as well but not all.
On another front however, my Dad used to blend his own beans in the old
country for his business. When Tim's opened up in Hamilton and I proudly came
home with the stuff, I always laugh when I tell this story, Pop took a sip
and lectured me. Don't touch the stuff, its been blended to be addictive due
to the high caffeine content, tastes mild but the caffeine will addict you.
If only I had known....a franchise.
Instead being the typical youthfull fool my response was yada yada yada.
Still on at least two cups a day and I must say its a blend that I enjoy given
the other alternatives available.
At home and only on Sundays out comes the German stuff. One cup and your good
for the day. I really dont know how people can drink this stuff in the
quantities that they do. Not even the Arabs I worked with overseas would
drink more then one glass (1/2 an imperial cup approx) of Arabic coffee but
it was spiked with cardamone and brought to a boil at least four times. Man
what a rush that blend gives you and your hunger pains are gone for the day.
Hay a new diet concept....hmmmmm. Perhaps its not too late...........:)
