Yes, please, I'll have another cup.

I am a coffee drinker. Coffee is brewed and served at about ten degrees cooler than the surface of the sun and I do not balk at taking a nice hot cup in mid-summer with temperatures of kill small children and dogs. The only time we don't drink coffee is at the height of the sun, between 12-12:15 because that would be stupid.

I am a coffee drinker. Coffee, not frappa-fruity-chino-mocho-what the? stupidity. Coffee. If it has whipped cream swirled on top it isn't coffee but some Japanese teenager street corner hi-jinx silliness that should stay as Far-East as possible. Expresso is coffee, but send me three because the cups are so damned small.

I am a coffee drinker. There is no such thing as coffee without caffeine. It's why we drink it. De-caf is like offering Highless pot to a Rastafarian. Ask once, I will say no. If you ask twice I am then legally obligated to wound you.

I am a coffee drinker. There is no such thing as Bad Coffee. Only Bad Coffee Drinkers. Coffee can be brewed with rain water filtered through an asphalt roof. If it can clean barnacles so they are ready for inspection, then yes, I'll have a second cup.

I am a coffee drinker. Do not be alarmed or surprised when I say things like, well, I'm off to bed right after I have another cup. Do not freak out when I clean my cup with the tail of my tee-shirt, or rising it off, or, most likely, chase the insect that crawled in there last night out and then hold up my cup for some brew. If it is clean enough for the bug, it's clean enough for me. I'm no snob. It's also why it is brewed and served at temperatures only measured in a lab in Sweden. My cup has never been tainted with the un-natural chemicals of soap. That blackened patina is only flavor protection.

I am a coffee drinker. So, to answer your question, yes, I'll have another cup!
