Do you sip…or inhale?

Aloha kakahiaka!  (Good morning in Hawai’ian)  Here in Ruidoso, New Mexico we just say “howdy.”  Happy Tuesday morning and greetings to all you coffee fiends.   That’s fiends not friends.  I know how you really feel about coffee!  The purpose of this blog is to unite coffee lovers, especially lovers of Kona coffee, and perhaps learn a little about coffee and all the benefits of coffee at the same time.  Brazil released coffee-scented postage stamps in 2001. The scent was supposed to last for three to five days. For a country that has tried to use coffee for other things, like plastic production, stamps seem quite normal.

Coffee shops and coffee sales have done relatively well in general, even during this time of economic murkiness.  That, of course, proves that we may penny pinch and save on a lot of life’s luxuries but coffee seems to be one treat that we won’t go without.  As we all know, coffee is often the first drink of the day or an excuse to meet up for business meetings or social gatherings.  It has been said that even traditional tea-drinking countries such as China and India are being seduced by the caffeine elixir.  However, this coffee craze has prompted some to find alternative ways of getting their caffeine fix.

One such endeavor in the news recently was the idea of Aeroshot.  It has been described as a caffeine inhalant and comes in the form of a canister.  The idea is that you put the canister in your mouth and inhale.  The fine powder dissolves in your lungs to give you tour caffeine fix.  The product is the creation of David Edwards, who is a Harvard Biochemical Engineer Professor.  He is reported to claim that it is safe and has about as much caffeine in it as a large cup of coffee.  But you don’t inhale coffee into your lungs!

It seems that there are some concerns about Aeroshot – particularly in terms of its effect on teenagers – and so the Food and Drug Administration is looking into it.

Perhaps it’s just as well to go back to the old-fashioned caffeine source – a good old cup of good coffee.
