Please take the time to answer these. Thank you....Thank you

If everyone would be so kind to answer this question for me I will be greatful forever.
1. Do you have to have coffee or tea first thing in the morning, before all else.
2. What do you do when you travel?

You should have milk or buttermilk in the morning, not dangerous tea or coffe which destroy the health.

Hi Sharon.

Q1. Do you have to have coffee or tea first thing in the morning, before all else.

A1. I'm a coffee person and I love it...(coffee actually has many health benfits and unless consumed in vast quantities is beneficial to the health as proven in many recent medical studies ...can't remember which ones now...sorry..lol)

Q2. What do you do when you travel?

A2. I like to be prepared when I travel. Generally I get everything packed and in the car the night before and all my papers money etc are in my bag so there is no''oops' I forgot' moment to deal with at the airport. Using a list ...preferably written...helps...but then I'm a bit 'ana'' about being organized when I travel.

Hope that helps and let me know the results...I'm curious.

latah..bzzz

1) I drink coffee all day long, Tea is a POM drink.
2) I don't understand the second question. I do lot's of stuff.

Used to be tea, religiously, now it's coffee. When I travel it's always coffee 'cause you can't get a decent cup of English tea abroad!

Hmmm...Sharon methinks we folks is confused on the second Q....could you help us out...did you mean what do we drink or what do we do to get ready for trip.

Isn't it amazing how the same sentence has everyone interpreting differently?...cool ...although I suppose in diplomatic cirlces we could have caused a sorld crisis of sorts by now....LOL

Hey Bill,

Did you bribe the colonel to start this thread?
I drank 20-30 cups of coffee a day
In Italy I would order six expersos at a time and locals would move away from me thinking I would surely explode.
Now I dirnk tea, conservatively.

Thanks all, what I mean for question #2 is : When you travel and say your in your hotel room do you 1. Drink instant 2. Order a pot of coffee or 3. Can you wait for the cafe.

Thanks again

Luckily for me so far...all the hotels I have ever stayed in have those neat little coffee pots and REAL coffee (not our Jamaica Mountain or Blue Mountain...but it'll do)...and a nice electric kettle for making tea. But I always have a nice second cup at breakfast.

Can you wait for the cafe?...woman are you crazy...true coffee aholics would die or end up taking out a few people before they were locked up if they had to wait for their mornin cuppa....lol

SChajin
06-30-2006, 03:16 PM
That is me I have to lay on the counter until coffee is done, I don't even speak. Most of the hotels I have stayed in only offer instant and in Europe a lot don't even offer that.

I dirink coffee in the morning. I drink coffee when I travel. I find the closest Starbucks. Coffee can be good for you according to the latest studies
(good antioxidant). That makes me happy.

ps I do like tea it is just more time consuming to make it right.

I could wait, I did in Cuba, but their coffee was worth waiting for, yummy). Lol. I usually take a travel kettle and supplies - of tea, coffee, sugar and creamer. I don't mind a cup of instant, so long as it's a good brand (which does NOT include Nescafe). Hope this information helps you in your research. http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/images/icons/icon7.gif

Wow! no electric power needed. that sounds cool. That might be the thing I need when I'm working on location in the middle of no where before the generators are up and working.

Did you know that Starbucks mixes overroasted coffees? ah such a profitable trend.

The best in the USA is available at Dunkin Donuts (now a British company - whew that will please my Voda friends from acros the puddle).

1. I have coffee first thing in the morning and sometime around noon switch to tea and end the day with tea.
2. A lot of hotels have small coffee makers in the room, I'll make my own if Juan Valdez Colombian and then have another in the cafe.

Lot of places just don't have the right coffees or burn it. Nothing like a good cappuchino or expresso, or a strong "cuban" coffee in Miami.

A solar unit to make coffee. How does that work. In the movie business we live on coffee. Sometimes we get grumpy because craft service (our snack and beverage people ) can't get the power up fast enough for us in the morning. Especially when we are on remote locations. Our electric crew has to power the lights and cameras first!

A solar powered one would be great in JA. Bill some info please...me interested...lol

Also Amanda...for some reason Nescafe here in JA is great...I don't know if comapanies make it differently or it's the water....somehting to ponder...

Also if you eve get the chance try our Jamaican Blue Mountain instant...it's supposed to be great and the Indian BRU version not bad....I bet if I were to look closely, they are all probably made by Nestle (an American company)...LOL

Have to get back to all on the solar charger, the vendor has switched to making solar chargers for a more profitable line -***'s, cell phones and little gizmos.
They have promised to get back to me with details.
With long weekend ahead, I will be enjoying a tequila by a lake.

Amanda,
Have you ever had cold press coffee? Made without heat, the richness is at its best with the least amount of bitterness. I brewed mine in the frige for two days. As ampie as anthing starbucks has.......Jittttttter juice.

Used to drink coffee all day long but, when I moved to Mexico a good coffee was impossible to find and I hated instant, so I drink chocolate 3-4 cups a day it is quite healthy and is 70% pure. Coffee does have many health benefits, I was told by a doctor than 3-4 cups is good for your health. If there is none available I just make everyone else miserable

I must agree, Que Bien is not very good, but they do grow excelent
coffee in mexico, I think it just never gets to the Mexican market. They must sell the good stuf to starbucks. lol

Have you ever tried Red Lion or Kona from hawaii ?

Vasili
07-09-2006, 03:57 AM
frickle, frackle, friggin caffeine fix....
Cold press, hot steamed, holding it in a jigger while doing the rhumba, it don't matter!!!
I NEEDS me coffee! I distinctly remember the affection Bee's fellow islanders have for rubbing raw chocolate in their dreads, and how purely relaxing drinking it early in the morning on the balcony at a 5-star villa overlooking the eastern shores of Mexico can be, but right now, it's either got to be a double-shot at the bottom of a Venti with some ice floating to cool it of to drinking temp, or 2 cigarettes chain-smoked in 10 minutes....

I am partial to Blue Mountain being brewed extra strong in a regular coffee maker, Kona strong also with cookies, and hot chocolate made from scratch.
A good Nescafe done fresco/Mediterranean style is always good too, though!

Another place with bad coffee is Colombia - what ever Juan Valdez rejects - gets served in Colombia - along with alka seltzer on all the menus - that was the only time in my life i drank coca cola for breakfast

I doubt that they would appreciate that. Colombians actually have excellent coffee, what they lack is the ability to brew it like Europeans. Its difficult to find a good cappuchino or espresso. Their's is a mild richly flavored coffee served in a small cup called "tinto" as in red wine.

Have to agree with bill,first time I ever used french press (great like stove top pot coffee but no grounds) in Bogota and Coumbia supremo is tops. Blue Mt. can't be found here we are tooooo rural but it is the madre of coffee.

I'm the odd one out - no coffee, no tea, don't like either - mainly drink water - am on a lemonade kick now - and usually try to have something with my Vitamin C in it in the morning.

They have these great fruit mixes now - 100% vitamin C with no calories - so I'm onto those!

Since I live traveling - it's home - and I do the same.

Hi all...Beth you are truly the wise one here...other than coffee and tea ...I live on water...I usually love nice glass of water over even fruit drinks. Hae you noticed the varying tastes water has in different places? It's wonderful...although...I gotta say thebest water is from my mom's village in india...the sweetest you ever tasted...

Ok..enough on the water already..sorry...hehe

Iv.e been on the forum at Jalbum. Reading three pages to get a sentence of what I wanted to know. I did get a new domain up so that I could use soholaunch but after I read up on custom page templets I think I will use
BV to build the gallerys and the store. my on line efforts affroded me 59
junk e-mails. I've come to the conclusion that forums are for spamers.
I think what I need now is a bottle of wine and some time to reflect and redirect.
Hope everything is well with you. Haven't had time to check out your site in a couple of days. I don't have anything to report on that front.

IF you need any help...email me through Beez World and I'll get on it right away...we can't have you wondering about in a dazed and confused state due to this stuff...you are supposed to be having fun as welll...lol

Maybe I can help get you album together or something...

But on the other had a good glass of wine and some relaxation is certainly the key...

Haven't done much to my site lately but have been toying with changing it around....we'll see...lol

We seem to have gotten totally on to tea & coffee & forgotten the travelling. One thing I do with travelling these days is to use a bum bag. They are great for airports, you can use your hand without concern for your purse. On the plane you always have your glasses & money for online purchases without fumbling through bags. Just have your book & your all set. Also if I ever need to leave the plane in an emergency (hope not!) I have all my really important stuff on me as you have you leave all your bags behind. Anyone else got any helpful tips?

I prefer brewing an esspreso blend (Stratus) ground for regular drip filter size grounds and making pots at a time.....and of course, I have my ample supply of Jamaican Blue Mountain which I refill every trip, bringing back at least 10 pounds at a time!

08-20-2008, 06:09 PM
I drink coffee (Gevalia) in the morning at home, mix full strength and decaf 1/2 and 1/2, 2 or 3 cups. Occasionally a cup during the day but never after late afternoon.

In the winter I tend to drink more tea but only decaf in the evenings. Sharon (an English girl) doesn't care for tea at all and drinks a little coffee.

When traveling the hotels we stay in we brew it in the room. When camping I brew a pot the second I get up.

Would rather go without than drink instant.
