Main Question or Discussion Point

not my thing but maybe other people on here will be into it:

Why drink your coffee when you can inhale it?

Thanks to creative engineering by Harvard professor David Edwards, coffee addicts can now breathe their morning cup of joe (and get their caffeine fix) using a product called Le Whif.

Le Whif 'gives us the kick of coffee without the cup,' says Edwards.

How does it work? Users place one end of the stick, which is about the size of a lipstick tube, to their lips, then inhale gently.

Savouring that perfect cup of coffe as the steam hits your nose, the different oils hit the different tastebuds, the right temperature. Inhale a powder? I don't think so, just take a caffeine pill.

People who inhale their coffee probably don't eat donuts. :biggrin:

Pills are too slow acting. When you need to get that math problem done on time, you don't want to wait for a pill. :devil:

I need my morning espresso. I brew a 4-demitasse pot, and dump it into my mug. Love the smell, the taste, etc. I don't think I'll be inhaling caffeine anytime soon.
