And of course there is no other way as to drink it black, strong and hot. Or – total opposite: iced capp, sweet, milky and light 😀 But I do not call it coffee, it is cappuccino after all 😉
If possible – with a company of friend(s) or just a bunch of people to talk to 🙂
Option two (equal to one though 😉 ) – a coffee&book combo…
As to coffee itself – I knew I’d love it before I tasted it. I remember as a little (and then not so little) girl I’d always hover above my Mom’s coffee cup as it was brewing (she’d drink it what we called “turkish style” – boiling water poured over the coffee grounds). I loved the smell, could sit there and inhale it all the time. My Mom stood her ground though and I was not allowed to taste it until I was 16 🙂
Obviously – I have my faves. Main thing is though – it has to be strong. And by that I mean – 5 heaping teaspoons per 400 ml mug – strong. Nope, I do not drink it my Mom’s way (neither she does anymore, my Sister still does 🙂 ), I have my trusty one cup (more like one mug 😛 ) coffee maker.
Of course from time to time I enjoy coffee in a fancy cup… Like when I’m in a restaurant 🙂 There is a risk involved in ordering coffee there though – not everywhere it is “drinkable”- so to speak 🙂
I have my favourite brands (nope, not expensive ones 😀 The amounts I drink would’ve left me bankrupt looooong time ago 😉 ), occasionally experimenting with new ones, knowing that in case it turns out to be not too great – I can always do the salt&cinnamon trick (yup, few grains of salt soften the taste, and cinnamon… well, it just smells divine, does it not? ).
I stay away from all those k-cups or whatchamacallits. Not for me. I like to mix in a tsp of hazelnut vanilla coffee though. And when in the mood for something with a kick – I add a shot of Irish cream… mmmmm…
…and having said that – my mouth is watering, so I better stop now (although I could go on 😉 before I’ll think another Cup of Coffee is in order! 🙂
