It's been a long time be­tween drinks but Mary-Rose MacColl's ar­ti­cle re the ben­e­fits, and in­deed im­per­a­tives, of drink­ing cof­fee (Up­front, July 26-27) was par­tic­u­larly well re­ceived. A woman af­ter my own heart, and here's a lit­tle tip: If you try re­ally hard at home, sans cof­fee ma­chine but mix­ing a cou­ple of the in­stant va­ri­eties, in­clud­ing your favourite sa­chet va­ri­ety (this may take some trial and er­ror), I guar­an­tee you can make a not-too-shabby and much cheaper cup of Java. It may lack a fancy il­lus­tra­tion on top but you'll get more bang for your buck, and what does that mean? More cof­fee, of course.
