if you’ve ever wanted to know
How to brew up a great cup of Joe
Some nerds have agreed
It’s hard sums that you need
To work out how the coffee will flow

      I suggest you try The Housekeeper + The Professor for a lovely little story about how maths truly is in everything. It’s one of my favourite books.

    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.

      There’s an Italian cafe not far from where I live. The proprietor is from Florence and he prides himself on his real Italian coffee, which is, it must be said, absolutely glorious.

            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
