The scandal isn't about morals, as stories about pill-popping politicians usually are, but about taste: With all the wonderful ways to ingest caffeine, why pick pills?
Wilson blamed it on his schedule: "I love coffee, but I don't have time to drink it and I don't have access to it," The Hill reports.
We'd like to help you out, Congressman. Our curator, Corby Kummer, wrote The Joy of Coffee, a comprehensive guide to buying and brewing. Our coffee expert Jerry Baldwin has plenty of advice for how to make irresistible coffee at home; he even has a guide for how to get good beans at the supermarket. And if you lose your taste for coffee, there's always tea: here are recommendations for varieties from China and Ireland.
Whatever you do, please, lay off the pills--if not for the sake of your political career, then for your taste buds.
