The Caffeine Thread
« on: November 30, 2010, 09:56:13 PM »
After a year of heavy tea snobbery, I've been brewing coffee every morning for the past six weeks or so. While I like coffee quite a bit, I'm something of a novice when it comes to picking out what's good and what isn't. (Dunkin Donuts makes awesome coffeee as far as I'm concerned.)

That said, I'm interested in expanding my palette a wee bit. Who's got suggestions?

Well, my first suggestion is to stop with the Dunkin Donuts coffee.  Jesus.

You can pursue two levels here.  Passive or aggressive.  If passive, my current favorite is the Whole Foods brand coffee.  Island Roast, Pleasant Morning Buzz, etc.  $12 for a pound and a half. You can't go wrong.

If you want aggressive, I can try and round up the guy who roasted his own Cuban beans in Canada and then smuggled them down to me. Best coffee I've ever had.  He's probably in jail now or something.

Oh!  And how appropriate that you make this thread on the eve of the 20th anniversary of Twin Peaks!

That's a DAMN fine cup of coffee!

You just spoon-feeding yourself coffee, Nubbins?

I'm also very disappointed that the peak at your bedroom doesn't reveal something horrible.

Today's news:

Quote
Good news for coffee addicts like me! According to a new study, caffeine may naturally reduce your risk of skin cancer from sun exposure.   The Huffington Post reports Rutgers University researcher Allan Conney's findings:

"The study we did with colleagues at the University of Washington identified the ATR kinase pathway as being inhibited by caffeine." The result? More DNA damaged cells are killed off, potentially preventing non-melanoma (basal or squamous cell) skin cancer from ever developing.
But caffeine doesn't only inhibit this important protein. Caffeine itself also acts as a sunscreen, absorbing harmful UV rays, according to Conney. So will your sunscreen contain a shot of caffeine one day? "I would think that's a real possibility," he says.

Until that day comes, there's some good news for coffee drinkers: You're already getting some sun protective benefits from your daily cup of joe. A 2007 study of nearly 94,000 women found that those who sipped caffeinated coffee daily had an almost 11 percent lower risk of non-melanoma skin cancer. Women who drank six or more cups of coffee on a daily basis saw a 30 percent reduction in risk.

Actually, many sunscreens already contain coffee, like Nature's Gate Mineral Kid's block. How well topical versus ingested coffee protects your skin, I don't know.

Also, studies suggest that people who consume caffeine are 8 times less likely to commit suicide.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.
