interview without coffee
 n.— «The order by Major Dan Taylor breached the Geneva Convention and the crackdown which followed at an aid camp near Basra led to three soldiers being charged with abusing civilians. But Maj Taylor was only dealt with at “summary level,” which means he was spoken to by senior officers—a process known in Army slang as “interview without coffee.” The officers concluded that he was guilty no more than “misguided zeal,” the court heard today.» —“Officer not punished over Iraqi crackdown order” Ireland On-Line Jan. 21, 2005.
