    I know I'm leaving a huge carbon footprint and doing something stupid but there is nothing, nothing, nothing I like to drink more than San Pelligrino. Stellies and Pellies: if all I had was that beer and that water, I could live with fewer bikes too. Coffee is for people who can't handle their water. (Not really. Like what you like.)

    That would have been the Coffee Connection. That was a great place, until they sold out to Starbucks...

    Hi Switzerland here,

    I went to the coffee connection, though to be honest, the service there sucked. At least now when I go to the Starbucks that is in its place, someone asks me if they can help me. Before, you could stand there for an hour.

    I like coffee of all kinds, even the shitty mass pike coffee at the gas station. They all taste delicious in context.

    same here. i'm enjoying one right now with lunch.
    I figure it's not the worst sin in the world. If the
    average is a case a month, it can't be that bad.

    I used to buy cases still bottled water, but it's a pain
    in the butt to carry home on the handlebars from the store,
    so now the rest of the time it's tap water.

    I have never acquired a taste for coffee. Sure have tried earlier in my life. Have come across some wonderful teas lately. It seems that the WHOLE FOOD here is getting a better selection. I go in STARBUCKS on SUNDAY to get a NYT paper. Still enjoy reading it OVER TEA

    Pete. Do you have a Tea-Luxe in your area? I went to the one near Brown University every day when I was in RI for CX nats. There's nothing like it here in Portland. There's some tea houses, but nothing with such an English flair.

    coylifut, no we go not.....When I go to NY metro area I usually look for new places BUT even those are mostly new wine stores. Last time up WE really found a great one. My basement is now more crowded.

    RALEIGH has not found tea yet BUT we do have a starbucks on many corners, a mcdonalds on the other - and if still room left a CVS or RITE AID drug store.....
