I'm drinking a lot of it. Like a half-dozen cups a day. Not because I'm constantly fatigued (although closing down a big outdoor shisha-slash-beer garden will do that) but because it's just what you do here. Everyone drinks coffee, all the time. Blazingly hot coffee, I might add, which doesn't seem like the ideal beverage for a desert city, but there you go.

The commissary at the paper also sells "mango chillers," which sound like a much better idea, temperature-wise, but there are no actual mangos behind the counter, so I'm skeptical.
