There are no policies on coffee per se, but personally, I feel that buying fair trade coffee* works well in terms of the "try being nice to people" spirit of Pastafarianism.

However, there are no hard-and-fast rules on coffee (or really on anything - this is a religion with "Suggestions, Not Commandments", after all).


Edit: I too live on coffee.
:D


*BTW for all those interested, Fair Trade coffee tends to be a bit more expensive normally, but the cheapie house brand "Kirkland" whole bean coffee at Costco in Canada is Fair Trade. Not sure if this is true at US Costcos; check the label to be sure.

We do have commandments, a great many indeed, but they are all very easy to keep.

A mocha java may have a slight edge, since it is chocolatastic.

Coffee also goes good with cake, a bonus!

Basically, as long as it doesn't hurt you or anyone else, the FSM tolerates it.

Personally, I consider caffeine a sacrament, especially when combined with high-speed, long-distance driving.

I recently read that 3 cups of coffee a day cut your risk of Parkinson's by 40% and Alzheimer's by 20%.

It was a 'fashion' type magazine, though, with no sources, but I plan on searching for some asap.

I LOVE COFFFEEEEEE!!!!!!

Coffee drinking showed some type of an inverse correlation with depression as well (in women, specifically IIRC) in some relatively recent study. Again, I don't have the source here...

I'm currently developing a love for Turkish coffee (especially with cardamom) and need to get a pot. And Vietnamese coffee, iced with sweetened condensed milk... it :fsm_rock: 's!!!

Coffee, despite tasting wonderful, does unspeakably horrible things to my insides. Will the Noodly Lord look down moreso on me if I gain my daily overdose of caffeine from other beverages?

Woot!

Iced coffee, methinks, is the best...especially a java chip frapaccino. :D

I contend that coffee's worse for one's health than caffeine. I used to be a fastidious caffeine pill abuser in college, and there's better dosage control and less stomach growlies than drinking coffee. Green tea and its variations are my usual non-coffee method of continuous dosage, but not much good for overdosing.

Having a bit of trouble typing words in the right order at the moment. I just sent my friend off to buy me cofffffeeeeee, with the only prerequsite that it be black black black. (My coffee drink of choice).

He returns 10 minutes later with a necromancer... Basically it was a bucket with a lid on it. I'm now trying to decide if it would be better to just keep drinking more. or to end it here and face the consequenses of the coffee crash.

Lecture here i come. i warn you all.

Ok I just saw the post coffee and I thought it was very relevent to my current state.

So my point is, Coffee good...

I always stayed away from caffiene pills - they seem to me to be too "unnatural".

And I can't see how anything as good as coffee can be bad for you. :D
