So you would think that being in Central America the coffee would be awesome here in Belize...NO Being a poor country you have to pay an arm and a leg for good coffee here. But, I have the hook-up from back home ( ) and get Starbuck's coffee Yesterday I got my office to but me a coffee pot, so this morning I brewed my first pot and got my fix

Any other coffee junkies? How far will you go to get your fix.

I'm a coffee addicted, but while in America I just couldn't find a real coffee... What you guys have is not coffee... i prefer to call it "tea coffee"... So weak. Maybe that's why americans drink almost half a liter of coffee at once... Here in Brazil if we drink this much of our coffee... We'll die... It's so strong and GUD!

my dad buys premumium green beans from all over the world... he currently has 70 pounds of un-roasted coffee beans chillin around our house. Then he roasts em up and grinds em up and its the freshest best tasting coffee ever. Its also cheaper than buying the gross stuff at wal-mart.

I'm not a coffee addict, but I do love chai and green tea. One of my duties when I worked for a particular horse trainer was to make her coffee every day, and she liked it poisonously strong. LOL It looked like oil or almost tar. Put me off coffee forever.

Yea, you can fool me though, I know you still get your fix everyday! But switching to beer sounds interesting, though I am not so sure how much work I would get done!

Sorry Jake, but maybe this is the only thing you didn't learn about us... We hate espressos!!!
Maybe you got confused cause we drink coffee plain and simple in 50 ml cups. That's what we call cafezinho "short coffee" and it happens cause coffee is served at the end of the meal and you won't find the item "a couple of cafezinhos" in your bill. So, if it's free it has to be only a little bit, got it? Anyway, this is really a national instituion and if a Brazilian sees you drinking coffee in a large american cup he/she will look at you as if you were a drug addicted!

Brazilians also drink coffee every morning most of the time mixed with milk. It's a very important part of our breakfast.
