  1. Went to the mall in Laval and the atrium was decorated with this gigantic tree so I took a photo of it with my cell phone and brought it all the way back to Cafe Crem. Phewwww! That was a lot of work but worth the effort. Ho Ho Ho!!!!

  2. Oh, what an incredible Christmas Tree, I never saw such a one before! They even had to make a hole in the roof to make it fit!
    I saw some very big ones in Germany, generally on the big towns market places, beautiful too, but the decoration in the meanwhile started only half the way up, because of the thiefs! Sad, isn´t?
    A gigantic 1 point for Michael!

  4. See what a good shot of double espresso will do to one with a camera phone and a brand new mall the largest in Quebec with an atrium build with glass to accommodate this 50 foot tree and that is a guess. My friend Carlos is Italian and right behind me in this is his incredible cafe where I drive 30 minutes to have an official Italian Espresso for 5 years now.

  5. Italian Espresso is the strongest of all, isn’t it?

  6. Here’s some history Susan,

    The traditional tale of the origins of Viennese coffeehouses begins with the mysterious sacks of green beans left behind when the Turks were defeated in the Battle of Vienna in 1683. All the sacks of coffee were granted to the victorious Polish king Jan III Sobieski, who in turn gave them to one of his officers, Franciszek Jerzy Kulczycki. Kulczycki began the “first coffeehouse in Vienna” with the hoard. However, it is now widely accepted that the first coffeehouse was actually opened by an Armenian merchant named Johannes Diodato.

    Contrary to popular belief in some cultures, an espresso contains less caffeine than most other typical servings of coffee. Espresso contains approximately twice the caffeine content per volume as regular brewed coffee, at approximately 40 milligrams per fluid ounce, but only about 1/3 the content per serving.
