A slow, steady hearbeat is imperative for proper sight picture.
Years ago I went up into the Blue Mountains and bought some beans from a local who was roasting them over an open fire, stirring them in a large pot. mmm. Jamaican Blue Mountain is about the most expensive you can buy ouside Jamaica.
The locals sell what they call "rat-bite" coffee. Beans with small rodent nibbles on them. They say the rodents only nibble on the beans that are at the "peak of perfection" (ripeness), hence, the perfect bean. True story.
Now I drink anything with caffeine in it.
