Cup of Hot Coffee

How to Drink Coffee
It's real easy. Order, lift cup to mouth, enjoy. Watch out as coffee is generally hot (in case you didn't know and were looking to sue us for millions of dollars because you spilled it on your lap). Good luck.

How to Ensure a Good Cup
Store at room temperature in an airtight cannister. For optimum freshness and flavor, coffee should be used within 2 weeks. Use filtered water. For each 6 oz of water, use 7 grams (2 scoops) of coffee. Adjust for personal strength preference. Always serve immediately.

How to make Conversation
This is also an easy one. Pick your target and say 'Hi'. What if someone comes up to you and says 'Hi'? Don't panic. Just say 'Hi' back. There are a million things to talk about: the weather, things you notice around you, your job, their shoes, just about anything. You might want to steer clear of politics and religion unless you're looking to pick a fight. We are not responsible for what happens to you when you venture past 'Hi'.
