    Nearly twice the caffeine of an Arabica bean, it'll definitely get your heart started.
    Oh, and after actually *drinking* this, let me take back my recommendation. It's still Robusta, and it still tastes just like Robusta beans. Ick.

    Why wouldn't you want to bring this? And share it?

    Of course you should bring it.

    Please don't make me Twitter I'm too old for that.

    From my reading this afternoon, the "Aerobie AeroPress" ($25ish) is the best thing since multiple orgasms. It reportedly compares favorably with the (ultimate yuppie scam) $11K Clover Coffee Maker. Amazon, here I come.

    After Defcon, it's coming to the office with me.

    Where's the Jamaican Blue Mountain that's won in years past? Does this mean that Kona wins by default?
