Strong: productionism by mean of agorism
Weak: privacy by virtue of freedom

Traditionally, coffee associated with colonies, e.g. Africa, and coordinated decision seen as treason promoting defeatism.

Strong is resistant to Iran preserving upper hand over Muslims while neutral about Croatia.

Weak is perhaps anti-catholic, and fits America's popular view (anti-war in the Indo-China).

You're a lunatic. I mean that in the nicest way possible.

Why don't you just make a proper topic listed as such and not a click-baity thing?

Now. I prefer my COFFEE strong if it's espresso. Otherwise, I like it medium. I actually prefer mocha frappes.

I am talking about coffee and no euphemism for something else. I just wanted that to be clear. :D

As for my preferences with coffee, I've already said it before, I pretty much just like an espresso. Otherwise I'll make one of those instant coffees at home with almond or coconut milk.

We use a French Press. It's a great choice if you like a medium roast, and can't afford the best.

If you use an espresso machine, try brewing medium roasts. At the very least, try Northern Italian brown espresso...

If you like coffee, here is a website you might like:

Light roasts don't get the attention they deserve, because they are expensive, and demand good brew technique. Actually, each light roast will demand it's own method, because it is depressingly easy to overwhelm the delicate flavors like fruity.

I have a Nespresso machine. I never used to brew my coffee one cup at a time with a capsule. But a friend suggested I try it and I liked the frothy milk part of it. So I tried it. I liked it a lot. So now I have a one-cup-at-a-time machine. I stick my little capsule in and brew my coffee in the morning.

For me the best coffee is Puerto Rican. People rarely think of Puerto Rican coffee because it is very hard to find in the USA. You can get it online. Alto Grande grows it. Let me see if I can get some native Puerto Rican coffee growers for you?

Lares, Jayuya, and Utuado, Orocovis among other mountain towns in Puerto Rico grow really great coffee, if you can find it. It usually is presold for a very steep price though. Just like Jamaican Blue Mountain and Kona from Hawaii. It is the best of the best.




Puerto Rican based coffee growers were nearly extinct. But, Puerto Rican natively grown coffee like this brand called 787 in NYC is the best kind of coffee!

You should buy it @late here is the link:

Cool, we go to NYC every couple of years to see my nephew, I'll try it then.

Now that I've retired, I don't buy much fancy coffee, but this business sounds good:

Coffee is stone age. I drink energy drinks :rainbow:


The strongest I can get are "Monster Ultra" and "Tiger Power."

Monster Ultra contains Panax Ginseng, and "Tiger Power" has zinc.

Vegeterians should drink energy drinks because they have a lot of Vitamine B12


BTW Coffee was a military drug of the Ottomans, they lost some bags at siege of Vienna.

I like medium roasts. I especially love the smell of coffee beans. There's this cute coffee shop near the public library. When you leave the shop, the aroma clings to all your clothing and hair. Shower time!

I also love some teas. I like a good chai or green tea.

No one should drink energy drinks, some of them are quite bad for you.

There are catacombs underneath Vienna, rooms neatly stacked with one kind of bone. A room of skulls, a room of thigh bones, etc. The siege was a grim time.

Energy drinks contain nearly the hole vitamine B complex except biotine, caffeine is also in coffee, and Monster Ultra (my favourite) has no sugar.

It has 4 stimulants, coffee has one... that much can mess you up, esp. if you keep using it.

Energy drinks are terrible for you and they lie about what's in them! Criminy sakes! Have a coffee or tea! A little B vitamin doesn't counteract all the negatives.

Consuming too much of the drinks can result in high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, anxiety, and insomnia, and the drinks are particularly dangerous for adolescents, said Frank Hu, Fredrick J.

@Godstud same counts for coffee

Coffee and Health
Coffee is an intricate mixture of more than a thousand chemicals. [1] The cup of coffee you order from a coffee shop is likely different from the coffee you brew at home. What defines a cup is the type of coffee bean used, how it is roasted, the amount of grind, and how it is brewed. Human response to coffee or caffeine can also vary substantially across individuals. Low to moderate doses of caffeine (50–300 mg) may cause increased alertness, energy, and ability to concentrate, while higher doses may have negative effects such as anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, and increased heart rate. [2] Still, the cumulative research on coffee points in the direction of a health benefit. [3,4] Does the benefit stem from the caffeine or plant compounds in the coffee bean? Is there a certain amount of coffee needed a day to produce a health benefit?
