Perhaps, countable nouns, nouns that typically end in "s" which you can count on your fingers, are easier to master than uncountable nouns like energy and gas. Here is a review and I've mixed in the idea of coffee culture. We have all heard at some time or other the cry for help, "There isn't any coffee." "There isn't much milk." These sentences are a demand that you go around the office and hunt some down. We say so much with little words like "some" and "any" and "much" and "many". And anyone who drinks coffee knows that coffee is rarely just coffee. It's booster fuel, a tranquilizer gun, a meal; it's that business meeting where you take the coffee and judge the company by how weak or strong their coffee is or judge the job applicant by how they take their coffee. Ice coffee in the summer because we can't go without. In Germany the words Coffee to go are pronounced like the country, so it's Coffee "Togo". Good coffee is like an exotic country. So much can be said about both topics, but there is only so much time.
My history of coffee is weakly based on what I read in Wiki and my own interpretation of events. How did you do on the "much or many" challenge? Did you know, much: money, passion, software, kindness, equipment, information, beer and research. (beer can also be countable if you count by the glass (beers), rather than the keg (beer). Many: ideas, and problems.
