Natural Decaf Kopi

::From what RPK and MGG have to say and if they are to be believed, it looks like there must be plenty of kopitiam and warong kopi talk about the forth coming UMNO Assembly which is to be held in September. Presently, there is plenty of actions going on in the divisions where divisional as well as 'factional' elections are being held. Not so very long ago, many had expected the UMNO meeting to be a sedate affair as the actors (those carrying out the duties of the President, the Deputy President :: the Acting President and the Acting Deputy) and other incumbents were expected to retain their posts. This may not exactly be stating it right, at least for the 2 actors, it may be better stated that the 2 actors would be elected unopposed to fill the vacancies of President and Deputy President. (Now have i got it right, still don't sound quite.) But now if what RPK and MGG are saying, the possibility of these 2 acrors being challenged looms. RPK claims that Ku Li will probably mount a 'challenge', this being his last opportunity to do so. RPK points out that as the UMNO Presidency is, actually speaking, vacant or unoccupied at the moment, Ku Li's attempt is not really a 'challenge'; still following me, as there is really no incumbent UMNO President presently. Many have thought before that Ku Li would take a shot at the UMNO Presidency before but earlier this year Malaysiakini reported that Ku Li had quashed talks of him challenging Pak Lah. Only time will tell, so lets be patient and await September, have another cuppa.

Now lets get away from the kopitiam talk and back to the original topic of kopi talk. Ah, yes, natural decaf kopi. As we all know too many cuppa of kopi with all the caffeine in them can only lead us, KopiTiam KokTalkers to problems like :: nervousness and insomnia, palpitations of the distressful kind, elevated blood sugar and cholesterol levels, shaky hands, insomnia, excess stomach acid and gastritis, and heartburns. So in order to reduce or remove these undesirable side-effects, makers of kopi, have tried to reduce the amounts of caffeine in our kopi and produced the decaffeinated versi (does take away some of the kicks but also the undesirables) but even these versi do contain some caffeine. The decaffeination process also removes organic compounds that can affect kopi's taste and aroma. So there have been attempts at genetic modification to have kopi plants producing low caffeine containing kopi beans. This has not found much flavour as genetic modification is presently frowned upon. Now it has been reported that where our scientists have not been so successful, Mother Nature has been able to do so. Scientists in Brazil have discovered three arabica coffee plants collected in Ethiopia that do not produce caffeine in their leaves or beans among a batch of 6,000 wild specimens originally collected in the late 1980s. So in the not too distant future, we may be able to conduct our KopiTiamKokTalkers' sessions in the warongs while sipping cuppa of natural decaf kopi and still get to sleep well and not have those tremors after many cuppa. Pregnant mothers who are kopi addicts will also not have to restrict their kopi consumption and need worry less about little juniors within them suffering ill-effects.
