I'd like to think one could get a decent cup of coffee in Hell. Though I fear only black coffee would be available! Below is a close-up of the Devils, scroll down to see the whole painting.

Coffee Break - devils in art by Nancy Farmer

This painting was the start of a demonic little series, based on the principle that if you have to have Hell, then Hell must be staffed with workers - your average devil - and workers have to have coffee breaks, etc...
For the full story (and to avoid repeating myself here) have a look at 'Devils' Tea Party, and then at 'Bathtime', where the dammned have become just the furniture - usefull objects for the slightly-better-off class of devil - sortof demonic middle management. I'm not finished with this subject yet...
