    Re:  Googled Coffee Quotes, Yeah "I Know"

    The quote that I used in my profile for quite some time was:

    "Ah, that is a perfume in which I delight; when they roast coffee near my house, I hasten to open the door to take in all the aroma."
    Jean Jacques Rousseau
    1712 - 1778

    Some others lifted from the web are:

    "Coffee should be black as hell, strong as death and as sweet as love."
    Turkish proverb

    "Coffee in England always tastes like a chemistry experiment."
    Agatha Christie

    "Espresso is to Italy, what champagne is to France."
    Charles Maurice de Talleyrand

    "How sweet coffee tastes! Lovlier than a thousand kisses, sweeter than Muscatel wine!"
    Johann Sebastian Bach (Coffee Cantata)

    "The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce."
    Oliver Wendall Holmes Sr.

    My favourite coffee quote comes from the food writer/critic Terry Durack who a few years ago wrote (something like):

    "A good espresso should have so much body its in danger of having its bottom pinched."

    I will dig up this string and add a couple of quotes from notable people.

    •* "Life is just one cup of coffee after another and dont look for anything else." - said to be Bertrand Russells last words.

    •* "If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee." - attributed to Abraham Lincoln.

    I have a T shirt (picked up at SCAA Exhibition and Conference some years ago) with a multitude of coffee quotes and their authors printed on. Its a beauty and of course...not for sale!

    Up on the chalkboard above local espresso bar/chocolatier counter - not exact but close I hope.....

    Coffee is what gets us up in the morning - chocolate is what makes it worthwhile

    Wow, so decaf originated in Tasmania?! It all makes sense now!
