Now before you go turning up your noses at me and branding me a coffee snob, this is actually not through any conscious doing on my part. It’s just that I don’t crave coffee and I’m not one of those people who absolutely need coffee to function. If anything, I’m a tea drinker but even then it’s purely for comfort rather than caffeine or antioxidant properties.
My first cup of coffee ever, as a teenager, was a cappuccino from a common food court chain which doesn’t specialise in coffee. It was bitter and I proclaimed that it needed more milk and more sugar. In hindsight it may have been burnt, but who was I to know any better? My next cup of coffee wasn’t until many years later in my early twenties, and my coffee progression since then has been: caffe mocha, caffe latte, flat white.
Whilst I haven’t progressed to a piccolo latte or a macchiato as my coffee of choice, I do enjoy an occasional espresso... although more often than not it is doused over a scoop of vanilla ice-cream!
