  • Are you addicted to coffee?


    According to the media, a large number of Australians are!

    http://au.news.yahoo.com/070829/2/14asr.html

    If there are 21 million people in Australia, and 25% are addicted to coffee, this means that the coffee business must be a great business to get into!

    I bet a large portion are "instant" coffee drinkers! Not the sort of business Im interested in....

            The "problem" is going back to instant. Its just backward.

              Lets just put things into a context here. This is a reference to a poll conducted among Home Beautiful magazine readers.

              That means anyone who is not a buyer of that magazine is automatically disenfranchised from voting.

              Most if not all of those readers are women.

              Most are of a specific demographic.

              Hardly a result to be extrapolated to the stunning conclusion that a quarter of Australians are coffee addicts.

                I have actually been surprised how well I can do without it. a new job and getting up early (Im not working in a cafe anymore) means that I dont have time to make myself one before work or at work. I thought I would find it much tougher. Im certainly not addicted.

                      Depends on the quality, bean freshness, grinding-buzz in ear-shot, pour, extraction-time observed ... blah, blah

                      Prefer a glass of water, if on offer is a stale warehoused mult-nat-blend. So in short Im addicted to great espresso base, but not what many a punter sees/tastes as coffee.

                      My business name links the idea of coffee as addictive ... so Ive got a bloody lot to answer for!!!

                      Clinically, caffeine is the defining addictive element (durr!)

                      Cafe-ically, taste/aroma/aesthetics ... if its all there then definitely coffee is addictive beyond the physiological/brain receptor things happening. Its more sensory ...

                      End the wank here

                        Hey Tony, is everything alright? You sound a little upset over something, maybe not enough caffeine hey..

                        By the way do you always refer to yourself as God?

                        I happen to know Him personally and Hes one of a kind...

                            Addicted I dont know, but passionate about a good coffee yes.
                            I usually have 3-4 double shots a day, my last one not exceeding 5pm so that I can sleep that night.
                            One has to have some little pleasures in life, I dont smoke, seldom drink alcohol so I think Im allowed the joys of the coffee bean to add some spice to my life!!!
