I LOVE coffee! When working at home, I’ll have two strong instant coffees with milk and sugar before I start working.
My go-to brew when I’m out and about (or working in the office for my day job that pays the rent) is a large, strong (i.e., with an extra shot of espresso), flat white with two sugars. A flat white is an Aussie invention: espresso and frothed milk with less froth in the milk than a latte. Check out the Coffee Fusion blog on how to make a flat white.
I was going through an old laptop and came across a post I wrote in February 2013 (in a previous blog iteration) about how much I enjoy coffee… and an article about a potent coffee. It had 48 shots of espresso and loads of syrup. The price at the time was US$47.30 (about AU$45.83 at then exchange rates, AU$67.15 at current exchange rates).
I decided to repost that post on my blog and some others. It will take some time to repost some of my older posts and some new content, and it’ll be a work in progress. When digging a bit to update the post, I came across a 2014 article on the (U. S. A.) Today website about a coffee with 101 espresso shots (and 17 shots of vanilla syrup), costing a whopping US$83.75 (AU$95.54 at then exchange rates, AU$128.67 at current exchange rates).
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the world’s largest coffee was created by the Tonic World Centre S.A. de C.V. in Guanajuato, Mexico, on 10 December 2022, at a whopping almost 27,000 litres (practically 6 U.K. gallons; more than 7 U.S. gallons). The Mayo Clinic indicates that coffee does have health benefits when drinking it in moderation. One of the favourite clichés in my family is “everything in moderation, even moderation sometimes”.
So what’s my point, you ask. Apart from reiterating my love for coffee, I must spur myself into posting on the Book Studio! And writing more outside of my day job! With the help of coffee, of course!
While I sincerely appreciate coffee, it is crucial to recognise that sometimes too much of a good thing can be overwhelming. However, despite this, I still find it a reliable companion in my writing endeavours.
