Can you actually get milk _out_ of coffee?

No. And that, my friends, is Entropy.

Yes. Leave said coffee at room temperature for several days until the milk splits from the other liquid(s). Not recommended though. :)

That's not truely seperating the milk and the coffee - the fats separate - but the milk does not - either in component or whole form.

Oh and No. Coffee is slightly acidic and breaks down the milk - brom then on you're buggered.

Milk comes from moo-cows, silly! ;o)

No, no, that's one of those lies country people make up to trick city people.

Milk comes from supermarkets.

No. Even if you squeeze the coffee beans really, really hard.

Yes, but THEY don't want those secrets to be revealed.

Coming soon to the Discovery channel:

" Lost Secrets of Atlantis and the Dinosaur riding Nazis who stole them! "

Are you sure that's not "coming soon to Channel 4"?

C4 would rename it " Celebrity Secrets of Atlantis and the Dinosaur riding Ironic Nazis who stole them! "

Surely it'd be 'I'm A Dinosaur Riding Nazi, Get Me Out Of Atlantis' ?

In reply to the original question, no or at least managing to remove the mixture that is "milk" from the mixture that is "coffee" would be almost impossible save for anyone who could be arsed to separate every single component of both mixtures and recombine all the pure, separate constituents of milk in their original relative quantities.

On a separate note do you know what the most expensive coffee in the world is? Apparently there's a particular type of wildcat which is capable of eating coffee beans whole, not mushing them up and pooing them out. The beans are then collected, washed and ground to make the world's rarest and most expensive coffee. Don't ask me how it tastes though. Would you eat washed and ground cat poo? So I guess Adam is partly right with the cow thing?!
