I have measured out my life with coffee spoons
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room

where there is not love
my coffee still tastes bitter
with twenty sugars

O Coffee, you dispel the worries of the Great,
you point the way to those who have wandered
from the path of knowledge.

No one can understand the truth
until he drinks of coffee's frothy goodness.

Where coffee is served, there is grace and splendour
and friendship and happiness.

Abd al-Qadir al-Jaziri (1587)

There once was a pretty barista
With an equally pretty twin sister
As she served my espresso
She also said 'Yes', so,
Though it pissed off her sister, I kissed her.

I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops! Mr. Moto, I'm a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot and I'll pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!

They have silent discos, don't they?
AULD REEKIE, this one thing I pray,
Please: show me the silent café,
Where no blaring music holds sway;
Where biddies don't blether away;
Where a fellow less skilled than J K
(Ms Rowling) in keeping at bay
The distractions and noises that may
Make it harder to think what to say
(Let alone the most suitable way),
Can sit with a coffee and ca…
…ke, and write masterpieces all day.
