The Internet is for (coffee) porn

CoffecupI like coffee. I need it to wake up in the morning and I love the taste. But the bloggers over at espressoporn.com really love java. This week the site was dubbed "a strangely compelling – and highly caffeinated – photo blog consisting of little more than snapshots of steaming hot joe," by Newsweek. Chief blogger Andre is a Scorpio who is "completely obsessed with espresso and a horrible speller." Site visitors are treated to up close and personal visuals of thick espresso dripping into tiny cups. In addition to looking delicious, coffee is enjoying a sweet moment of vindication. After hundreds of years of being blamed for everything from impotency to pancreatic cancer (the latter was later linked to cigarettes, a habit of many coffee drinkers), recent research suggests coffee may be good for you. Salud!
