    Firstly he would declare instant coffee an illicit (and bad tasting) drug..... with penalties for the consumption and especially for the pushing of this insidious coffee substitute. ;)

    Good effort grendel!

    Re: United CoffeeSnobs of Australia Party

    And at the opening sesssion of Parliament will be opened with the following prayer,

    Our coffee,
    which art in the roaster
    hallowed be thy crema,

    thy will be drunk
    at home
    as in the cafe,

    give us this day our starter pack green beans
    and forgive us our lack of crema
    as we forgive those who god shot against us

    and lead us not into overextraction
    but deliver us from instant

    for thyne is the coffee
    the espresso and the latte
    forever and ever

    amen

    heheehe

    Re: United CoffeeSnobs of Australia Party

    Or perhaps the coffee version of Psalm 23?

    The Lord is my barista; I shall not want.

    He maketh me to recline on green sofas: he leadeth me beside the clean tables.

    He repoureth my latte: he maketh me a ristretto of righteousness for goodness sake.

    Yea, though I walk through the aisles of instant coffee, I will fear no nescafe: for thou art with me; thy cafe and its staff they comfort me.

    Thou preparest an espresso for me in the presence of mine tea drinking colleagues: thou anointest my ears with friendly banter; my latte hath art on it.

    Surely warmth and bonhomie shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the cafe of the Lord for ever.

    knew I shouldve paid more attention in class when I was at Catho schools, and it wouldve paid off finally, 28 years later!

    grendel,

    After that I cant help but think of Andy as the head of "The Holy Coffee Church" with you and Sullo as two of His disciples.....

    And there is a huge following..... we are committed to our "religion" and it is a great "god" to worship

    ;) ;D ;D ;D

    And as Padawan I wait for the day to hold the Chalice (pf) and step up to the altar (expresso machine) and pour the God Shot!
    But until that day Im still wandering about picking up the empty cups and out back in the cleaning room washing them.

    Praise be to Andy Prime Minister Elect.

    So whats out "catch phrase" or hook line Grendel?

    aka Sullo

    Brilliant!

    Im sure my " I brew & I vote" bumper stickers had some influence on this monumentous victory.

    A suggestion: all coffee related products & services to be GST free!
    [Except for instant/supermarket stuff]

    It only takes 500 paid up members to form a recognised political party, I believe.

    I volunteer as French Press Secretary.

    Sounds like a cushy job if theres hardly anyone to communicate to.

    Drips would be allowed
    As would those who want to take the plunge.
    Bumping and grinding is encouraged.
    Our coallition with the Greens would be a real one!
