You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

What is this "awful strong" of which you speak? I know not this term in relation to coffee.

I know I've gone overboard when either I have to start chewing it or the spoon's melted.

Almost in full agreement with you V but I do confess that Greek/Arabic coffee is just a little bit too chumpy even for me. The art of coffee making was perfected by the Italians IMHO. French not strong enough, Spanish nice try but not quite a cigar, Italian just right.

I guess they discovered the perfect brewing temperature for those little pots was created when they put the tanks in reverse...

Well lets face it, the Italians are past masters at generating a load of hot air so steam would not be a big stretch. Hell, I'll forgive them for the five reverse gears in return for the art, the architecture, the cuisine, the coffee, Sophia Loren and beautiful though unreliable cars.
