Blogroll Update: Our Freedom of Espresso

I love the name of this blog, Our Freedom of Espresso. Jersey has offered an introduction.

In her own words:

Just like Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, and the rest of the major religions, adherents to atheism and its non-theistic cousins  come in a variety of colors and shades. As is, coffee and coffeehouse have long been associated with the freethinkers' movement, giving rise to democracy, freemasonry, humanism, separation of church and state, both the New York and London Stock Exchange, and the not-as-important things like tipping, social gatherings without the presence of alcohol, and $5 coffee drinks.

As secularism and non-theism rise as dominant forces in the Western world, these forces clash with established traditions and religions who long have had an unrestrained hold on our culture and society. "Our Freedom of Espresso" hopes to be a blog about showing the benefits of freethinking and skepticism, while trying to show that there are as well many positions between atheism and theism that many blogs do not seem to show.

I love espresso - thick and strong like it is made in Italy. Yummy!

since you guys like coffee and I don't. I figured I would forward a little cool article I read about it.

Apparently @ starbucks you can order a Short Cappuccino, a Short Latte, and a Short coffee. The cappuccino I am told has the same amount of espresso as the one larger than it. Making it stronger. Anywho, here is the original article. Hope it does you some good. http://www.slate.com/id/2133754/
