    Like I said,I don't drink the stuff unless it is VERY cold outside.Then I gotta have enough sugar to leave grains at the bottom of the cup before I can enjoy it.Either that or sweeten it with honey.
    Like I said,Elixir of Life.

    The squid juice didn't quite cut it. So we made our own.

    Must have been made by a Marine trying the Navy recipe.
    Shoot straight.You're not being paid to bring ammo home.

    That's so it can hold you up after you drink it....


    *** without assistance of course.




    Oh well, so much for that plan...

    I can see it now::: Hey bubba :::: lets pick through this cat c#ap and roast up those green berries. Some fools will pay big money for anything.

    Coffee is meant to come from the mountains of South America and be roasted well,& made with cold water and served BLACK.

    I've heard a bunch of prisoners have been demanding this "breed" of coffee,even though it's among the most expensive flavors of coffee in the world.
    And they are getting it,too!
    In the Navy,coffee better be made right and right frakkin' now or there will be riots.
    One time,when my destroyer was in the yards in Norfolk Va,I was assigned to fire watch some welders underneath the ship while we were drydocked.
    At the shipyard workers' scheduled union break,all us Navy guys trooped up to the messdeck on the ship(we still had galley services onboard and not on the barracks barge) where we learned that the coffee urns had just run out without the messcooks(E-3 and below personnel assigned from their divisions to the messdecks as a rite of passage) knowing about it.
    Major problem here.
    It was a cold and windy November day in Norfolk with the wind funneling down the drydock and dammit,we wanted coffee,even me and I don't drink the stuff unless it is really cold.
    As soon as the "messcrank" started the brewing cycle,there were mugs underneath the spigot taking the java straight "off the evaps" as the saying goes for water fresh from the evaporators.
    Half a cup of sugar and some milk and you are talking about The Elixir of Life for sure.

    You need to watch a movie called 'The Bucket List' with Jack Nicholsen and Morgan Freeman. Nicholsen's character drinks the stuff throughout the movie and boasts about it's greatness. Freeman's character has a good laugh explaining to Nicholsen what it really is that he's been drinking.

    The coffee is also known as Kopi Luwak
