    No, just kidding.  It might be hard to obtain if you live in Muleshoe, Texas, but otherwise you can find it at Central Market, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, World Market and the like.  Or online.

    Or you could just hop down to Costa Rica where they drink it with LOTS of hot milk.  The milk is heated before the coffee is poured into the cup, and while I am not usually a fan of a lot of milk in coffee, this is different.  Extremely mellow, but makes an unforgettable statement that you will record in your memory book.

    And if you make it to Costa Rica and want to see the Volcan Irazu, it's pronounced EAR-ah-zoo.  I got lost looking for it, stopped at a gas station and accosted every local I could find with my pigeon spanish and they just looked at me like I was crazy.  

    Finally, one of them realized what I meant by ear-AH-zoo and pointed over my shoulder.  I was standing right in front of it.  Had it erupted, 500 years from now an archaeologist would have broken through the lava to my Pompeii- pretzel remains and said something like "Oh, look, another one.  But why is he so much bigger and uglier than the others?"
