No, I'm afraid you're quite wrong there. Coffee is the giver of life, the bringer of light, the sweet nectar of alertness. Coffee is that which availeth, it is that which soothes the soul in the hour of its greatest need (ie, when you've just woken up) and guides us on our path towards the greater wisdom which is our only reason for being.

It is well that we erect temples to coffee, and make our offerings to our mendicant brothers and sisters who tend those altars, for unless we maintain these shrines, we will be cast into the outer darkness of Folger's and crap of that nature.

For coffee sustains us on our journey from birth to death, and it is only through coffee that we can hope to exceed indolence and conquer malaise. Be not seduced by false idols, oh my brethren! The energy drink is a false harlot, she promises sweetness but she will only jangle your nerves and leave you jittery and yet oddly tired and lacking alertitude. The dew from the mountain is oddly green and sickly and bubbles strangely - turn away, oh my brethren, turn away! And tea is a nice old lady, but let's face it, she hasn't got what you need.

No, my friends and neighbors, there is only one beverage and her name is coffee. Sing her praises, grind her beans freshly, pour on the water that is almost but not quite boiling, decant her into a proper cup for pete's sake, adorn her with cream and sugar or adore her in her most natural form. Treat her with respect, and she will always lead you on into the light of reason and understanding. Shun the false idols, and turn back to coffee, before it is too late!

My must have coffee for long road trips is "Red Eye" or as it known now "Extreme"

I can only find it at T&A truck stops.

My friend told me that it's just regular coffee with a shot of espresso.

Coffee with a shot added is a very common "house special", and it often gets a cute name like "Red Eye" or "Shot in the Dark" or that sort of thing.

I drank one on an empty stomach, really just testing the taste against the Mana Potion, and forgot all about drinking it and went back to work. Within 10 minutes though I kid you not I could feel it, and got a pretty quick "up" from the drink.


I really wouldn't have put it that way...
