    1. Yes! Well, I assume they do. I actually don't drink coffee... *runs away*

    2. You are not alone. I don't drink coffee either.
      I'm rather fond of tea, though.

    3. Yes, I can attest that Turkish coffee is more like drinking a concentrated coffee syrup; one might sense a certain grittiness about it. I prefer to say one can feel the coffee "chunks" passing over the tongue; it is not for the faint of heart. I do like the black tea very much, even though, or maybe because of, all the sugar added. I disagree with my colleagues; I never thought the tea to be narcotic, just very pleasant and uplifting. Finally, two precautions: 1) Never lie down in a poppy field that is in bloom, and 2) Do not drink rhaki ("rocky"), unless you are not alone, and the drink is diluted at least ten to one with water, the way Turkish men drink this 200 proof "lion's milk".

  4. Türk kahvesi will certainly wake you up. For a language comic, was surprised to see just this one not written in its native tongue :)

  5. Haha! Where does Kopi Luwak fit in this scale?

  6. Beware of Polish Americano - a drop of coffee in 400 ml of boiling water. I still don't get why would anyone drink this. The most coffee hating way of doing coffee I've ever met.
