I am very pleased to know that Robert Anton Wilson thought quite similar about Coffee as a magic potion of some Sort.
“Javacrucianism also has the simplest theology in history, teaching one thing only is necessary for salvation, the American Coffee Ceremony—a variation on the Japanese Tea Ceremony. This is performed at dawn, and you must face towards the rising sun, as you raise the cup to your lips. When you take the first sip, you must cry out with intense fervour, “GOD, I needed that!” If this is performed religiously every morning, Javacrucians say, you will face all life’s challenges with a clear mind and a tranquil spirit.”
