Gone are the days when coffee was simply a black sludge inhaled in the morning to get out of the house on time. Right under our noses, coffee has changed from a "cuppa Joe" into a "decaf low-fat latte."Coffee drinks such as cappuccino and cafe mocha -- which combine deep, dark espresso with steamed milk, foam and flavorings -- are growing in popularity.The signs suggest that the coffee craze that's in full bloom on the West Coast has hit the rest of the country. Specialty or gourmet coffees are in fact cannibalizing the regular coffee market, says Bob Dechillo, a spokesman for the National Coffee Association, a coffee industry group.

I was recently "home-schooled" in the art of making coffee. My instruction occurred in my kitchen, using my Cuisinart automatic drip coffee maker and Baltimore water. I did graduate work with the French press coffeepot. My instructor was Erica Hess, who holds the title of coffee educator for Peet's Coffee & Tea Inc. Peet's is named after Alfred Peet, who in 1966 began roasting coffee in a small shop in Berkeley, Calif. Peet, who came to be called the grandfather of specialty coffee in America, died in September at the age of 87. Peet's Coffee is sold throughout the United States, including Whole Foods stores in Baltimore.

A FELLOW NAMED Dave Holmes stopped at a Dunkin' Donuts on Belair Road, the one just north of the Beltway, and stepped into line behind what he called "two real bruisers," men who might have been voted Most Likely to Serve (Time) by their classmates. "One guy's neck was as wide as I was," Holmes said. "Both of his arms were completely tattooed, and he had a buzz cut and a big nasty scar on his back. His buddy wasn't quite as large and had one or two fewer tattoos. All in all they were a pretty intimidating duo."

East European coffee house meets chic espresso bar in the charming new Le Mean Bean Cafe at 1741 Fleet St. Besides specialty coffee drinks, sandwiches and elaborate desserts, the cafe features borscht, stuffed cabbage rolls and other Slavic specialties. Little did I think when I ordered a "Far East veggie sandwich" that it would come with excellent pirogi (potato dumplings) on the side.* Starbucks, the coffee company based in Seattle, has an almost magical reputation as having started the specialty coffee craze in the United States.

Seattle-based Starbucks Corp., which reported slower-than-expected sales growth for July, saw its stock weaken yesterday for the second time in a week.Yesterday's 12 percent drop to $41.875 a share reflects concerns about the gourmet coffee retailer's ventures to extend its brand, rather than signaling a slowdown in consumers' consumption of specialty coffee drinks, analysts said."The businesses they're going into that are not retail store-oriented are ramping up a little more slowly than expected, and the costs associated with them are greater than expected," said Andy Barish, an analyst with BancAmerica Robertson Stephens in San Francisco.

Could it be that we're too late?Here we are rolling in from the Portland, Ore., airport, just in time, we figure, to see the flowering of America's next Great Place, the emergence of Portland as the city that's cooler, greener, smaller and cheaper than the last Great Place, which I believe was somewhere north of here, on the coast. Portland, we understand, is nourished by coffee, beer and books, neighbored by forest and rivers, a damp promised land.But our taxi hasn't crossed the Willamette River yet, and Khalid the driver is already deep into an explanation of how Portland has gone to the dogs.
