Double Shot of Espresso Straight Up:

Not the most difficult of drinks...you just make a double shot of espresso and put it in a demitasse. Then you savor it without sugar or milk. Perfection

Neat idea, glad to see something different, that dark mark in the b/g is a bit distracting, but what can ya do? Colors and lighting are good, 8.

Like the action shot, although the short DOF misses most of the fluid which detracts a little for me. I presume it's coffee but looks a bit like chocolate with the slower shutter :)

Can't put my finger on why I like this shot, but I find it quite appealing. I especially like the reflection in the pot. Wish it were a little sharper on the pot rim, but still a nice composition.

As a fellow coffee drinker, I second your description as fruit of the gods, and as I sit and drink the mornings first cup (peets, Major Dickason's blend) I declare this picture "Porn for coffee lovers." Great job and good luck.
