Lyrics in English:

For a good start
of my little day
and in order to wake up
i have a coffee.

An arabica,
black and very strong,
i pull on my parka
and that’s it, i’m good to go.

Where are you going?
says my beloved one,
let’s have a kawa,
i just woke up.

Being ahead
and a bit pressed,
i change direction
and take another coffee.

At 15 to 8
we have to admit
the offices are empty
one can get bored.

But i stay calm,
I know to adapt,
before they all arrive
i have time for a coffee.

The day carries on
everybody can work away
till the time
of the coffee break.

My secretary comes in,
“strong, as u like it”!
Damn, i just took one,
but since this one is done…

A business lunch
near the path
it’s a great weather,
but i feel stressed

My colleagues mock me,
Relax, Rene,
take a good cigar
and a little coffee!

Once done,
my knocked-out colleagues
call a cab,
but i feel like jumping

I go through all Paris
and I see a bar
I order a decaf,
but caffeined again.

I arrive at the office,
my secretary says,
U were a bit late
so i got worried.

Oh, I throw her out the window,
she really looked for it!
Anyway, I have to go back home
but before that – coffee!

Waiting for the subway
I get attacked:
an old lady asks me,
what time is it, please?

Hey! I broke her head
and throw her onto the quay
I withdraw to my home
and serve myself a… guess what!

Daddy, oh my daddy,
I’m first in my class,
What the fuck!
Stop pissing me off!
He’s very idiot, this kid,
and he’s blubbering!
I lock myself in the kitchen,
there’s a bit of coffee left!

It’s been some days since i’ve locked myself in,
I’m alone in my kitchen and i drink coffee!
I should rather sleep,
The cops will get me,
So i nail the doors locked
and drink more coffee.

I guess this caffeine curve also goes well with the whole idea!

Enjoy your coffe day!

Biscuit Lover Mug

Hot or Cold Coffee mug

Finally, this simple cool clever mug automatically indicates its current state of mind when you pour a hot beverage into it.

In its dormant state, the mug offers a black “OFF” display, but once your hot coffee or tea hits the inside, it gradually transforms to read “ON”. A heat sensitive pigment changes the colour of the mug from black to white.

The main differences between espresso coffee and drip coffee are the fineness of the grind and the brewing time. The brewing time for espresso coffee is much shorter, made possible by espresso machines that generate up to 15 atmospheres (ATM) of pressure to force the water through the coffee.

A shot of espresso is made by forcing about 1.5 ounces of nearly boiling water through tightly packed, finely ground espresso coffee. If everything goes well, what comes out is a dark brown, slightly thick liquid with a small amount of crema (a foam, sort of like the head on a beer) on top.

There are many variables in the process of making a shot of espresso. The temperature of the water, the pressure of the water, the fineness of the ground coffee and how tightly the coffee is packed are just a few.

Espresso coffee is a blend of several different types of coffee beans from different countries. The beans are roasted until they are dark and oily-looking.

The beans are ground very finely — much finer than for drip coffee. The consistency is almost like powdered sugar. The more finely the coffee is ground, the slower the espresso comes out. Generally, for the best shot of espresso, it should take about 25 seconds for the water to pass through the coffee. Sometimes, the consistency of the grind is adjusted to control the brewing time.

Drip coffee is made by dripping boiling water over ground coffee, which is ground more coarsely than espresso coffee. The water filters through the coffee and falls into a pot. This process is slower than the espresso process, and hot water is in contact with the ground coffee for much longer. Surprisingly, a cup of drip coffee has more caffeine than a shot of espresso.
