    Based on the standard of coffee in 90% of shops, and the seeming contentment of the clientele – I predict the next big thing to be ‘hot drink’.

    It will consist of hot water, some milk, frothed of course, and a mere wisp of whatever-you’re-having-yourself.

    Insomnia will sell litre cups of it.

            Do they do a shared bowl of spaghetti for a Lady and her Tramp? (Sorry Bertie, no offence).

    the best cup of coffee, is black and strong and sweet and is one handed to you in the morning by someone with a big smile who doesn’t even want to talk to you until you have drank it in civilised peace
