Never noticed before, but the packet has a logo - "Rainforest Alliance Certified" with a picture of a toad.
Might be hard to find since Kraft now owns all the shelves.
In the evening, I do enjoy a good cup of hot chocolate, sometimes with Kahlua, though that can be quite sweet, a lot does depend on the mix. I usually go for a good shot of dark rum.

This is all fine, just leave the coffee alone.

Hot chocolate is actually really tasty! And I also love Capuccino. But just leave the good coffee alone, as Jim already said...

If they made coffee flavored Baileys I wouldn't need coffee.

By the way has anyone ever tried 2 oz Baileys and about 6 - 8 oz hot water, great drink for after shoveling snow.


Cheers
Doug

Now I'm becoming afraid to retire. It seems it makes your feminine side show through.

Had some spare time today and was curious if my Jura Capresso ENA4 would work with the the 1500W inverter. There is a button you can push to give extra punch for 30 minutes and with it engaged the machine did heat, grind & brew. The inverter starting screaming at me but it worked. Probably not going to take it along but nice to know we can...makes a very nice cup 'o Joseph.

I did something similar with a 200 watt inverter and a one-cup coffee maker ( claimed very low power ). I tested it out in the company car and making the second cup of coffee, shortly after the first, I melted the plug into the power outlet.
