~ Honore de Balzac, “The Pleasures and Pains of Coffee” ~

This coffee falls into your stomach … From that moment on, everything becomes agitated. Ideas quick-march into motion like battalions of a grand army to its legendary fighting ground, and the battle rages. Memories charge in, bright flags on high; the cavalry of metaphor deploys with a magnificent gallop; the artillery of logic rushes up with clattering wagons and cartridges; on imagination’s orders, sharpshooters sight and fire; forms and shapes and characters rear up; the paper is spread with ink – for the nightly labor begins and ends with torrents of this black water, as a battle opens and concludes with black powder.

    oh, you need to advertise this a lot “LOUDER”….. i just finished a coffee-talk with another grad student, and after 5 cups, i’m typing 115 wpm and theorizing about micro-finance strategies in countries i’ve never visited. this black water is a shameful drug… and once my buzz dies down, i’m going to regret those last 3 cups!! 🙂
