A Turkish Promise Involving Coffee

It has been said that Turkish bridegrooms prior to their marriage were once required
to make this irrevocable promise during their wedding.

The promise was to always provide coffee to their new brides. 
Here comes the punch line, drum roll...if they failed to provide the cups of coffee, it was grounds for divorce.  Operative word: grounds.


Can someone reading this please explain WHY?

Everyday I go to work I witness the same old thing. Cars lined up at the StarBuc$'s drivethrough window awaiting their morning fix.

I compare that to what I go through each and every morning. I awake (thank GOD!) and my one cup of superb liQuid heaVen is awaiting me in my solo cup hot and ready. No waiting, no lines to wait in, no wear and tear on the car least not we forget the gas wasted while waiting.

Yeah, everyday I go to work and I wonder out loud, WHY? Those of you reading this, do you have an explanation? For I sure as hell don't.


Happy Holidays, now grab some coffee

Happy Holidays from liQuid heaVen coffee. We would like to wish everyone a wonderful Holiday Season and an even better 2010.


You’ve heard: “Grab a cup of coffee to relieve a headache.”

Better make it two cups. Studies show that 200 milligrams of caffeine—about the amount in 16 ounces of brewed coffee—does provide relief from headaches, including migraines. Exactly how caffeine relieves headaches isn’t clear. But scientists do know that caffeine boosts the activity of brain cells, causing surrounding blood vessels to constrict. One theory is that this constriction helps to relieve the pressure that causes the pain, says Robert Shapiro, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of neurology and director of the Headache Clinic at the University of Vermont Medical School.

However, relying on caffeine long-term can backfire. When regular coffee drinkers miss their daily caffeine fix, this is often associated with a rebound increase in blood flow to the brain. Increased blood flow means increased pressure and, as a result, “withdrawal headaches” can occur. Shapiro counsels headache sufferers to limit caffeine intake and use it only to relieve headaches.
