What is left for non-believers

Australian author Lynne Kelly sure sums it up nicely. She only made one major oversight…she forgot to put coffee in her phrase to make it perfect.

She is author of many books, including A Skeptics Guide to the Paranormal, Spiders: Learning to Love Them, as well as Crocodile: Evolutions Greatest Survivor

CoffeeKid – Exploring the Culture and Artistry of Espresso and Coffee

CoffeeKid – Exploring the Culture and Artistry of Espresso and Coffee.

A very good site for information on Espresso and Coffee.

Had to love the phrase on the welcome page:

“coffee warms the soul

yet bankrupts hearts.

it stimulates discussion

yet fosters dissention.

it moves the brain.”

If you love coffee, you will like the site very much.

The Coffee Creed

This is my coffee. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My coffee is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my coffee, is useless. Without my coffee, I am useless. I must make my coffee true. I must dose better than anyone else. I must pour better than anyone else. I will…

My coffee and myself know that what counts is not the crema we make, the sound of our Bezzera, nor our tamping. We know that it is the coffees that count. We will…

My coffee is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its smell, its sights and its taste. I will keep my Gaggia clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…

Before the World, I swear this creed. My coffee and myself are the defenders of my acumen. We are the masters of our future. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no decaf and there is only peace!

No milk, just the beautiful crema of my espresso.

See you next time.
