in reply to Average number of caffeinated beverages per work day

I live in Chiapas, Mexico, one of the foremost places in the world to live at for coffee fans. I can get freshly roasted highlands organic coffee for 2 dollars a pound. :-)

Too bad I suffer from chronic heartburn. Most mexican native americans do, from drinking so much of it. Sometimes I swallow my morning Zantac with my first sip of coffee.

Here's a link to some text by Balzac that used to be posted by the "all you can drink" Espresso machine we had at school:

From Harper's magazine: "Balzac died in 1850 at the age of 51; according to his physicican. the cause of death was 'an old heart complaint' aggravated by 'the use or rather the abuse of coffee, to which he had recourse in order to counteract man's natural propensity to sleep." Balzac wrote 85 novels in 20 years.
