Ah, for the bad old days of non-pre-digested, percolated, Robusta swill. Even a drunk could order it, with one word. Try that at Starbucks today.

I like making my coffee using caffeinated bottled water :gulp:

@Roland: I usually handle all my dealings with Starbuck's with zero words.

I've never had a Starbuck's anything although it is tempting to go in and order a plain coffee.

P.S. LOVED the email "line" Expat 😊

I wonder if ol' Mississippi John Hurt's song was the inspiration for the name of the late 60's rock group "The Lovin' Spoonful". Their song "Summer in the City" has been an earworm to me lately.

For those who may not remember MJH, here is his "Coffee Blues":

Such a sad little song.
He finally comes home, and SHE spends the rest of the night in the bathroom!

I read somewhere that the Lovin' Spoonful refers to heating heroin in a spoon and injecting it.

I have the Ella Mae recording on my iPod.
