I spent Christmas this year with my brother, sister-in-law and my two nephews. Among some other nice presents, they got me a coffee grinder.
I’m so happy now because trying to chew those hard little beans every morning was making me pessimistic about the coming day. Now I can munch on all the coffee I want!
I noticed something weird though when I was at their home — they don’t actually chew their beans! Not at all. Instead, they boil them in water. Then, they discard the beans and suck on the water! I can only suspect they must have learned such an elaborate and complicated custom from a decadent Frenchman.
If so, what will those clever, but decadent French think of next? Maybe bath water you don’t heat with your own body? Where will it all end?
