Remember how you felt when you found out what gets put in hot dogs? I discovered an… interesting… video this morning about why good coffee is good and great coffee is crap.

I am becoming increasingly convinced that the office I work in is haunted by a ghost who enjoyed coffee in his or her living years. A lot. I come to this conclusion due to the fact that there is a creamer drawer in the break area that often, under its own accord, slowly slided open – often while I’m standing right there! I’m sure if it wasn’t a warm area anyway due to the coffee brewing, I’d feel an icy chill as I walk by now and then.
And who can blame it really – we have darn good coffee where I work.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. After I drink caffeine, I get a boost, and then a drop – not as bad as sugar, but certainly there. If I drink enough water to offset the dehydrating effects of it, I feel better, but I still start every morning with coffee and tend to have a second cup at the office (plus the Diet Pepsi Max from time to time at lunch). I keep thinking about quitting caffeine, but I just love that cup in the morning. Maybe decaf would give me the same spiritual boost without the chemical effects…
It took me many years of stubborn caffeine fandom before I finally succumbed recently to the need sometimes for decaf coffee. I enjoy a cuppa in the evening, and lately I just need to actually go to sleep when I go to bed. So there you are.
Any recommendations on tasty decaf brands/flavors?
