l> Kyle's verdict on the house coffee?  It's "mighty good."
__  Not "damn good?"  Looks like a pan to me . . . :-)
r> Is "Jo" (== "Java"?) synonymous with good coffee in the USA?
__  It's not currently popular slang; it went out of style decades
_   ago.  I believe they call it "Joe" in Twin Peaks to show how
    much of a backwater the town is.
__  It has, of course, come back into usage amongst fans of the
_   show.  Retro-slang, like.
