KidneyStone: Cafe Bustello


The ghetto grocery across the parking lot used to have that because of the large number of Latinos in Lexington, KY these days. It was $3.99 for a small can; expensive for Save-a-Lot but cheap for drinkable coffee. Then they quit carrying it for some reason, but Dollar General had those bricks of it marked down so I got three. The Wal-Mart up the street has cans for $3.88, but that's almost a mile away in the frigging winter: refusing to let winter get me down already gave me a case of bronchitis that for two weeks has had me coughing till my ribs hurt and then choking on the phlegm.

Today it's 60 F. but even after 4 days of Z-pak I felt too crappy to walk 8/10 of a mile to the ex's to give the dogs good walks around the neighborhood and walk back; in fact I've spent most of the day in bed knock out by my last muscle relaxant. And of course it's going to rain tomorrow and then get cold again next week. There's no telling when the next pretty Springlike day will be: last year there was no Spring, it was chilly and rainy till mid-July when it got hot literally overnight.

But at least I've got a pot of Bustello to drink, and an ibrik for when my mood cries for a stronger cup. And there's really no reason (besides prudence, temperance and discipline) to not start pouring rum into it already: I should use the yawning emptiness of another day of sickness to do a little housework, or maybe even read something intelligent and/or write something in my livejournal, but nothing appeals to me as much as getting groggy and dozing off again.
 Thanks O my fellow Farkers for keeping me company against your will.

trappedspirit: There's some borderline hipsters in here throwing around the word hipster like they think it will distance themselves from it.


Don't look at me, I'm a gap-tooth white-trash psycho.  In Lexington, KY, which is almost as good as West Virginia to y'all arch-sophisticates in Peoria. If I hadn't run away to California in 1978 I'd probably still be boiling Folger's Crystals in a saucepan on the stove.

When I call myself a hipster where people can see me obvious non-hipsters take it as a joke and people who ain't so far from the hipster stereotype think I'm straining for "irony." Oh well.

On the Internet nobody knows you're not a hipster.

DreamyAltarBoy: johnny queso:

I would venture to guess every single American knows the Kardashians. To our eternal shame.

I had blocked them from my mind.


I don't own a TV and only know about them from "news" coverage on the Internet. The only reason I pay any attention is does have a great body and looks so much hotter without all that rainbow spackle on her face: sometimes it takes more than snapshots of Drew to get my pecker up.

My office supplies the pantries around the building with the absolute worst coffee I have ever tasted.  However, it's free caffeine and I'm not bringing in good coffee just to have the assholes in the office drink it all.

So, I'll fill a 24 ounce insulated cup with about 20 ounces of coffee, add four ounces of milk and three packets of sweetener.  My office mates refer to this as "Snow white and seven cubes".

I prefer my coffee in a number of ways. To wit:

1. If I'm in desperate need for a caffeinated jolt to my system, I go for either a double (or even triple) espresso.

2. If it's prior to 10am, black and made to Navy regs. As in--thick as motor oil and strong enough to strip paint.

3. If I just need to relax with coffee, large, black drip coffee with cream, plenty of sugar, and maybe even flavoring syrup if I feel like it.

4. If someone else is paying--white chocolate mocha, large.

5. I occasionally have a cappucino or latte, but those are exceedingly rare.

FizixJunkee: Sounds like cwolf here hasn't had coffee in Europe..



Nope. And maybe my opinion would change.

However, i grew up with chain drinking coffee drinkers aka my parents.  It took a while to get that smell out of my nostrils at age 7 on up.  I'm disgusted by the smell and flavor. The only exception being chocolate covered coffee beans.

TFA leaves out that in most cafes in New Zealand, you also have to specify which beans you want. There will also be a choice of several types of sweetener. NZ being a small benign country of no real significance, we can expend our mental energy on stupid things like that.

My girlfriend makes fun of me, because I screw up ordering her fancy coffees.  I get an americano when I feel fancy.  I can always remember the name and it's just super strong coffee and some hot water.

You have terrible taste if you cannot enjoy the smell of coffee. Any coffee.
