    Coffee questions

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey,

    I have heard that people say that you get addicted to coffee because of the caffeine but i think the addiction is how good it tastes :), so what do you think about that statement?
    What about skin going a darker colour?

    Just thought Id ask to see peoples oppions :)

    If your skin is going darker Id advise to stop rolling in the spent grinds.

    Good one TG ;D,

    I can just picture this in the format of watching my old kelpie rolling around in the paddock when he discovered something irresistible I had a laugh... Certainly creates a very humorous image ;D

    Coffee makes your skin go darker? Faboo, my pale insipid lillywhite complexion needs a boost, obviously I dont drink enough coffee at present.

    Darn, I was hoping rubbing the spent grinds into the forehead area may assist with hair regrowth :(

    Even if it doesnt promote hair growth, the darkening of your forehead will reflect less light and not show up your thinning hair as easily.

    Actually,

    Ive heard that it produces a vigorous, tangled, and matted growth of really thick hair on the palms of your hands and soles of your feet :o..... Gotta be really careful how you apply it :P

    I had a laugh! I didnt think anything strange about it either! I actually thought it was the nice thing when in Italy, you always got offered the glass of water with your espresso.

    Re: Coffee questions

    Maybe its similar to the reason why people smoke menthol cigarettes.

    I use it for a palate cleanser for the next shot :P

    Im living proof that that is a myth. I drink an awful lot of coffee and have very pale skin. Could try rubbing coffee grounds in - I dont think it would change your skin colour, but it might make a nice exfoliant. :D
