Are you chasing the bourbon with coffee, or chasing the coffee with bourbon?

Either way, I like your style.
I go both ways.

It was a regulation change: Caffeine and Carbonated Soft Drinks (July 2010). Sorry, I should have included that link for clarity the first time.

The general idea is that consumers should get only what they expect, particularly regarding things that raise health concerns. We expect caffeine in coffee, tea, and cola, but traditionally did not expect it in other beverages. Heck, we choose some of those to get the caffeine...

Alf, now what was it that you like to mix with Bourbon (not coffee) that you served me at the Niagara Rally. Not sure whether I liked your trailer or the drink more

It is the same here now and you do have to read the label.

Hi: emers382... I sure hope you're not suggesting I influenced you with "Drink".
I can't remember the mix but I know it wasn't sacramental wine... could have been Maple Wine though!!! LoL Alf

No influence with the drink, it was the maple, I liked it, but liked the trailer even more as you well know

UPS just delivered an aeropress to me. First cup already done.

Overall very pleased with it. My heavy-er glass french press can stay home now. If I can find a good coffee to go with it, it might even replace my Keurig machine. Maybe.

I like to leave the coffee/water mixture in the AeroPress for near a minute before pressing. I believe the instructions call for much less time.

I make at least two batches a day, each doing 2 cups, with the AeroPress. I have looked at more expensive machines, but once you have a method down, it really is quick and easy, and tastes great too.

I just roasted a batch of Sumatran beans. Love the flavour wafting in the air.
