Caffeine jolt

A bit paler than a Guinness.

I got into Frankfurt late last night, so it was a good thing that I didn't have any meetings until the afternoon. As a result, I was able to sleep in a bit (well, until almost 7:30AM, anyway), and stop by my favorite coffee shop in Heidelberg, Star Coffee. Sort of like Starbucks without the bucks.

On my first visit to Heidelberg about three years ago, I stopped into this coffee shop and asked for a cappuccino. When the young lady asked "kleine oder grosse?" (small or large), I said "grosse", of course. I wasn't prepared for a cappuccino served in a pint (well, 5ooml) sized glass. I really felt the need for a kick this morning, and this much caffeine will definitely get your cerebellum throbbin'.
