Could It Be The Coffee?

Every morning, about this time, as I sit in the den at the computer, I begin to feel hotter and sweatier than when in the steam room. Could It Be The Coffee?

I drink two very giant mugs of coffee every morning as I type/blog/answer email etc. This is good coffee, made in one of those electric filter coffeemakers. I use good Turkish (Israeli) coffee. Then I add some milk and just a bit of sugar.

Then sometime after starting mug #2, there's a heatwave.

During the day I don't drink coffee, just water, so it's not like I'm a total/true coffee addict. On Shabbat I drink a large mug of instant coffee.

Even though my hair is pretty short, I feel like I've just been shampooed, all wet. And even when I walk too much during the day, I don't feel this sweated up, f'shvit'd.

I can't drink coffee during hot weather for exactly the same reason- it makes me feel to hot

Maybe I should cut down...
The first mug doesn't do it. Or I can cheat and have the second mug later in the day...

"Turkish (Israeli) coffee"? Pick one.

There are two rather interchangeable Turkish coffees I buy here in Israel. One is Alladin, and the other is packaged identically. They're vacum packed. So, for a coffee expert, I may sound terribly unsophisticated. Sorry
