Double double


Today's Breakfast at the Flea™ is coffee double-double. Now, I understand there are certain hard-core coffee drinkers out there who think coffee is, by definition, black. I am not sure I can defend my preference any more than I can defend my whiskey preference for Irish brands over those Islay single malts. One is hard-core and one is not. At least I am not ordering my coffee with "one cream, one milk and one sugar" which a colleague of the Flea does to the confusion of coffee-shop clerks everywhere.

Since you mention Islay single malts I'll assume you've already tried Lagavulin and Laphroaig found them wanting. How about Oban? It's a little milder and not as peat-y (is that a word?) as the other two. It has a nice warm finish and is very smooth, to the point where even my girlfriend (who is not a scotch afficianado) can enjoy it, too.

Asbach brandy, from Germany, preferably IN the black brazilian treacle coffee... yummy!

Aliens? Invading aliens? Where?
