Jonathan's thoughts on the Documentary series "Black Coffee"
The takeaway message from the series is: drink the pricey stuff, avoid the cheap stuff! Cheap coffee is bad for your body and mind in different dimensions and buying cheap coffee essentially supports the modern day equivalent of human slavery. Where as buying the good, pricier stuff supports development, education, small business, political freedom and health in the developing world.

- The cafe in Venice, Italy where Casanova used to pick up chicks
- Tip is an acronym: To ensure promptness
- England - old wives tale of coffee being bad for men's sex drive: Nothing moist but the tips of their noses, nothing stiff but their joints and nothing standing but their ears.
- There were actually hookers in the coffee houses and the men would say oh sorry I just had some coffee
- Coffee was a huge part of the reason that the slave trade existed
- The major coffee companies Maxwell House and Folgers would drive down the quality of the coffee
