I think coffee has been getting an unfairly bad reputation lately. It's probably one of these things that doctors and nutritionists will be withdrawing their former advice about in five or ten years.

Even if it is as bad as some people seem to think, I agree that the taste, ritual, and experience may well be worth any bodily harm incurred.

This is exactly why I decided to bail on the naturopath. I am generally in good health, and am not in the mood to follow food rules that will only make me miserable.

Godd decision to go back to coffee before the holidays!

Now it clicked that you proposed having coffee together a few days ago ... I forgot you'd been off the bean ...

I'm with you, ma'am.

I was hesitant to bias your experiment, but I personally feel I should enthusastically support anything that legitimate clinical studies say can reduce rates of depression and suicide in any way. Really, I support any excuse at all. Why not? Coffee tastes good, and it works. Life's too short*, already...

From what I've seen of their bean juice suction, I think Aggie and 4th Dwarf may also hold this position. I bet many dwellers in wintery northern latitudes drink the stuff. (Ever seen a Starbucks - any Starbucks - in Seattle in the rainy season...? Crowded chaos. Any time of day or night)

Umm, of course I mean all that in a completely supportive nonjudgemental, nonsuicidal, non-addiction-enabling kinda way... even though you may note my clever and subtle use of the "Bandwagon Appeal" propaganda technique in that last paragraph. Welcome back to the road behind another kind of wagon, where so many companion souls have fallen with you!

* Hah.
