Pouring down a calpis or pocari sweat after you've walked two blocks to Shinagawa station in the middle of summer sure hits the spot. Iced oolong is great too. Heck - I've never had anything bad fine out of a vending machine in Japan.

That having been said, whenever I've been overseas, at breakfast, I much prefer a flat white from the machine in the exec lounge at the Intercontinental Hotel in Adelaide. Never had a bad coffee served there. Heck - *any* flat white I've ever had in Australia has been outstanding - I've never needed sugar. Of course, the post-work beverages I've had there are for a different thread...

At home, however, I make do with a french press if making for both me and the wife in the mornings, or my moka pot for my afternoon hit. Just need to find a decent bean. Right now we're doing monsooned malabar, but I'm looking for a whole bean with a bigger kick and am looking at Stocking Mill and deciding if it is worth more than the local grocery (which is itself kinda expensive).

That's it, all this talk means I'm going to go and brew some more coffee in my French press.
