    Not sure intelligence is the right word. I've read two books on coffee and have visited a coffee plantation twice.

    I'm also a trained barista (coffee maker for those who don't know the word)

    I just felt if I'm going to like coffee I should know as much as I could about it.

    Do you have any pictures from the coffee plantation?

    Yes. Is probably not what you're expecting as it was in northern Queensland Australia.

    The plantation is family owned and they plant their coffee a bit differently. More like a crop.

    Is it similar to how apple or orange trees are arranged in rows?

    Yep. They also designed a machine to help with harvesting.

    That's cool. I could picture it shaking the coffee trees to pick the beans. I saw something about how olives are harvested and packed. There is a machine that shakes the olive trees, and the ripe olives fall into a container. It was either Food Network or Discovery Channel that had the show about olives.

    This is it.

    I drank a lot of coffee today!

    I had to stop at the Honda dealership, since I have nitrogen in my tires, and the cold weather made my tire pressure monitor go off. While I waited for the tires to be topped off with nitrogen, I had two cups of coffee. The Honda dealership has a coffee bar.

    Then I went over to my mother's house for dinner. She made more coffee than she wanted. I wasn't going to let it go to waste. I drank another four cups to finish the pot.

    I'm wide awake now, after having six cups in only about two hours time.

    I got an email from Starbucks last Sunday. From 20 January to 26 January, they're giving 4 bonus stars for each espresso drink purchased. So far I've gotten 10 stars, since I've had espresso twice.

    Yes. Not everyone likes coffee. I don't recall when I had my first but I didn't become a coffee drinker until I was 32/33.

    I just realised I haven't tried Starbucks in quite a while. My boss at work is a Costa man so I'm thinking of giving them a try. Forgive me Starbucks...

    We have Costa here. I'm not a big fan. Then again I'm not a huge fan of Starbucks either. :P Though they have gotten a bit better.

    I was in London on Saturday. We were planning on going to Starbucks because they have a new single origin coffee available but we ended up going to Apostrophe because the have better cakes. :P The coffee isn't bad either.

    Stateside, Starbucks are always packed in the morning. Sometimes there's actually a line that goes outside with people waiting for coffee. Last fall when I was in Lyon, France, I discovered a Starbucks in their pedestrian zone and it was like the loneliest place in town. Two people sitting on the inside and two people on the outside drinking their coffee in the morning. I wonder how they stay in business.

    Starbucks are big here too. Costa and Starbucks are the ones you find in the motorway service centres.

    In London I'm sure they're busy as well (mostly tourists) but there are many independent coffee shops around if you know where to go. :)
