I loved the old, can't be reasoned with, mysterious in its judgement Borg. It was practically written as a force of nature, sometimes peaceful, sometimes unstoppable destructive with their only hope begging for help from an actual god.The borg should be unstoppable
I didn't care for coffee at all until a brief period where I was the only non-Italian in my section at work, after which my mornings started to look like this picture...
The green one is the sneaky one. It seems mild when you take a bite, but then it hits you like an 18-wheeler five minutes later. The red one advertises the fact up front.From what I understand red is the spicy one (colour via the chilies), yellow is medium (and coloured via tumeric ) and green is mild.
Might go for red. Spice must flow!

At least if it's prepared by actual Thais.
Dried red peppers is the authentic choice, but scotch bonnets if you just want to see through time.Can you get proper dried red peppers where you are? Because they really, really help add the Scovilles!
Have a go with lemongrass - grows from seed as easily as lawn grass... just likes a well drained quite open soil - plenty of sand/perlite. Hardy down to -10 I think (sorry - that's obviously in centipedes!)My only issue is that I'll have to adapt a few ingredients.
For example, I'm allergic to shellfish, so no paste, or fish sauce. So I'll have to use soy or perhaps Maggi (which is stronger) for that hit of salt.
Lemongrass too is next to impossible to source, so unless I grow loads and keep it in the garden I'll have to use lemon zest.
Every thing else is sorted though.
