A Coffee Convert?

PR has never been a coffee drinker... (he did try 2 cups during our 15 years in Brazil)...but has recently been reading about its good benefits, so...
...he decided to give it (another) try, and joined Mark in a (half) cup this morning.
It was newsworthy, so we had to give Karina a call.
Mark is finding it interesting being back home.

    newsworthy indeed! was it caff, decaff, or halfcaff? did he add that wonderful Brazilian sweet milk to it? and... is he shaking yet?!
    hang in there, Mark!

    That's pretty amazing because about a year ago my wife started drinking coffee. She doesn't have it daily just on occassion. But after all those years -it amazed me.

    Good for PR! I hope he drinks it pure (black and bitter).

    Oh, man! On the eighth day... Coffee is our friend. Coffee is good, good for you and good to the last drop.

    Also, my daughter and her husband own a coffee roastery business, so it's their livelihood, too. It's still good.

    Good 'ol coffee. I'm trying to cut back from about 6 cups a day to about 2. I'm not sure when the benefits start kicking in but I'm thinking that's a good number.

    I'm not a big coffee drinker, but I've been having more, since we got an espresso machine as a wedding gift.The downside of it is that know I "can't stand" regular coffee... I only want espresso!

    Lived in Brazil and never converted! Amazing! I am finding much pleasure in the cafe com leite quente.
