It's always interesting to read about someone's evolution in the coffee world.  Maybe you can post a couple of the runner-up entries?

somehow made me think of the jittery kid on Southpark whose parents own the local joe joint.

My mother's thick black percolated coffee would have undoubtedly stunted my growth, had I consumed it at the same tender age as Amanda.  Of course,  I am now 8 feet tall, so it is hard to say which is the better way to go.
