Just had my first 'real' coffee in probably 5 years. Oh man, that's good. Can't stop smiling. Feel wide awake. Oh boy, why did I give this up???? Oh yeah, sleepless nights, blood pressure, er, other stuff. Oh never mind. Weeeee!!!!!

A friend brought me to a local shop the other day and swore the coffee was great. I was skeptical, as I thought all coffee pretty much tasted the same. Much to my surprise, it was actually much better tasting than the coffee I usually have at work. I actually thought, "this tastes good, give me moar!!!!" rather than "gotta drink this to stay alert for the next 8 hours".
When you consider the cost of a latte, and how many people have to buy thier latte in the morning, why should you be surprised. I have been places with pretty good free coffee, and still people go to starbucks and pay out over 3 dollars. I was at LVH (las vegas hilton) this weekend and they were charging over $5 for the large latte. I paid (also got a croissant for almost $4), but now I know that there is a starbucks just down the street, I will go there instead.
