Discovered in Africa, I spread like a tide
To become a hot staple known the world wide.
A necessity to some, a treasure to many,
I'm best enjoyed among pleasant company.

Some like me hot and some like me cold.
Some prefer mild, others only bold.
Some take me straight, while some like to savor
My essence to which has been added a flavor.

So put down your cares and sit awhile with me;
I'll send you back refreshed and full of energy.

Really cute! I like it! You must be a genius! Do you have kids? Because if so, they must be super smart, too. Especially your daughter, if you have one.

I got it from the title. It didn't hurt that I'm sipping on a Tim Horton's Cafe Mocha either!

Great job! Fun and easy!

Very intelligently laid out. And in a poetic nature. It was very easy for me, but it did get my mind in gear. Keep up the superb work.

At last, this is something to percolate one up with. I'm well into my espresso, but thanks for that extra caffeine rush.

Jul 18, 2006

I GT it ... and I'm not a coffee nut, either. Diet CKE is my "drug of choice" ...
Thanx, GebbieRose!

Nicely written, but incredibly easy, since coffee is my beverage of choice.

WOW. I loved this teaser. I didn't get it right away, but when i read it again, i got it! Yay me! I prefer my coffee cold, and just finished up my favorite-a mint java chip frappa from Starbucks. MMMM!
thanks for a great teaser!

I liked this one. I was thinking 'tea' until my brain woke up and I remembered tea originated in China. Coffee, then, immediately sprang to mind.

I actually meant to say chocolate... I obviously need some of both.
c_rae*us*
Jul 18, 2006

Not difficult (especially for a major coffee addict like me!), but very fun!

My drug of choice is a S-bucks Venti Vanilla Latte Iced or Hot (depending on the weather)...mmmmm now I want one! Thanks for the "jones"!

Easy one but fun because of your clever wording. It passed my smile test!

I'm glad everyton else figured it out.Unfortunately, I needed the hint before the light went off.I really liked this teaser.
OldChinaHand**

It could not have been chocolate. The earliest record of cacao (chocolate) use was among the Mayans in Mexico and Central America dating back some 2,600 years.

Thanks for that. I learnt something new

You should try your hand at tea now...*slurp*

I was thinking wine at first but, of course that did not probably come from africa. Good Job, I enjoyed trying to get this one too.

Sometimes an easy puzzle is still fun; this was a great example. And, being a coffee afficionado, how could I not like this? Reminded me of "The Devil's Cup",a book I highly recommend.

i'm with octavian420's first thought. but i never thought of coffee

well worded, nice first effort

Jul 27, 2006

Had I just paid attention to the title I might have stood a chance of getting your nicely worded teaser. However, even tho my grandmother was a Mrs. Olson, you know, Folgers coffee lady, I don't partake so this one became luke warm for me in the answer department. Good job - made me feel kind of like the morning after the night before - duh!

Thank you, duh-head. We never know how to think about anything until you tell us.

I have never had coffee, but I still figured it out.

Yes, that's right, I don't know what coffee tastes like, I just figure it tastes like it smells.
emu77alu02us*
Jul 18, 2009

auntiesis, that is amazing that you've never had a cup of coffee! Good for you! Despite what health experts are now trying to say, it has never really been good for the body, esp the heart.
Great teaser though. I always thought it was discovered in S. America for some reason.
shannmoAus*

better watch out craniac you're gonna start a war so terrible that you will hate duh-head even more!!!!

I thought it was malaria after reading the first line. However, I soon realised the answer.

Jul 18, 2012

Though I DESPISE coffee, I found this teaser quite easy to figure out. I recall reading the story about the sheep herder many years ago as an example of the definition of the word gamboling.

Jul 18, 2012

It was an interesting fact. I needed the hint to get it. I did though. Didn't know it came from Africa. Nice quiz
