Drinking coffee is kinda my major hobby... the great benefit of being an actor is you have all this spare time.
My ideal is just hanging out with people - I think I am innately lazy.

I packed coffee once when I lived in Australia, and I just remember going
around every day with coffee up my nose and in my ears.

The powers of a man's mind are directly proportioned to the quantity of coffee he drinks.

Ah! How sweet coffee tastes! Lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine!

Coffee has two virtues. It is wet and it is warm. - Old Dutch saying.
Coffee is the common man's gold, and like gold, it brings to every person the feeling of luxury and nobility. - Sheik Abd-al-Kadir
Coffee is real good when you drink it, gives you time to think. It's a lot more than just a drink; it's something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.
- Gertrude Stein

A very good drink they call Chaube that is almost as black as ink and very good in illness, especially of the stomach. This they drink in the morning early in the open places before everybody, without any fear or regard, out of clay or China cups, as hot as they can, sipping it a little at a time.
- Leonhard Rauwolf
