Today is the 245th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party.
I’ve had several questions asking which coffee maker I use. Based on a recommendation from Glenn Reynolds, I bought a relatively inexpensive Cuisinart model for use at stately Hoge Manor, and it has provided excellent service—and it makes good coffee. It’s available from Amazon.

That’s a finding of research done at the USC School of Medicine.
Drinking coffee was associated with a lower risk of death due to heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and respiratory and kidney disease for African-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Latinos and whites.
People who consumed a cup of coffee a day were 12 percent less likely to die compared to those who didn’t drink coffee. This association was even stronger for those who drank two to three cups a day — 18 percent reduced chance of death.

8 oz strong Kona coffee
1 oz fat-free half and half
1 oz Cointreau
I think so, Brain … but the coffee pot is empty every time I go to the break area.
If anyone is really bothered by a plain red cup, I suggest that he do what I do and buy his coffee from a shop that sells good coffee in the first place.
UPDATE—Speaking of coffee cups and Christmas, check out the selection available at The Hogewash Store.
I think so, Brain … but we use coffee as break fluid.
