The Federal Government denying it's putting our soldiers in harm's way for the sake of oil. more than 100 people killed by a truck bomb north of Baghdad.

Stationed between the two flashpoints - Australian soldiers. us in the face right now is getting our combat forces out of Iraq with a realistic timetable.

about just why Australia went into Iraq in the first place. Iraq has not ever, from Australia's perspective or anyone else's, Iraq has not ever been about oil.

The Australian Coffee Association's Les Schirato is also Vittoria's CEO. He remembers 30 years ago they couldn't give the stuff away. When we would do coffee tasting at supermarkets and try and get people to taste our coffee, I always remember we'd give the coffee to little old ladies and they'd grab their throats and say "Are you trying to kill us?". How times change. Coffee, real and instant, is now a billion dollar industry and Vittoria's new $20 million factory

Cafes everywhere you look and at coffee colleges, master baristas pass on their expertise because Les Schirato insists a bad coffee ruins your whole day.

So what makes a great espresso or flat white? The first is good, fresh coffee. You then need good, clean water. So if you've got your little espresso machine at home use some still mineral water, distilled water or your filtered water. The machine has to be clean in the machine otherwise the oils will build up and that will give you a bitter, rancid taste.
