Sunday, November 25th, 2012

For those obsessing on what to give (or get) the coffee perfectionist, the WSJ has a list, video, and interactive graphics:

More U.S. Homes Adopt Single-Cup Machines as Coffee Culture Goes Self-Serve

My mom makes her expresso in a traditional stove-top brewer that is decades old. Amazon has one for $20.56. The 3-cup size leaves you the option of having more than one cup, or boiling some milk for a nice cafe au lait.

And remember, if you buy through the above links, I make a small commission at no cost to you, which is a nice way of supporting this blog.

cup of teaTea and coffee ‘protect against heart disease’

Drinking several cups of tea or coffee a day appears to protect against heart disease, a 13-year-long study from the Netherlands has found.

It adds to a growing body of evidence suggesting health benefits from the most popular hot drinks.

Those who drank more than six cups of tea a day cut their risk of heart disease by a third, the study of 40,000 people found.

Consuming between two to four coffees a day was also linked to a reduced risk.

Of course, being wired by the caffeine from more than six cups of tea a day may just make you feel you’re living longer, simply because you’re staying awake longer.

I wonder what became of the naked coffee guy?
