I love it.
Recently, I've even been known to drink decaf. Oh, the horror.
I never thought I would see this day. I used to be a tea drinker. No coffee for me, thank-you. It hurt my stomach. I hated the taste and caffeine didn't really do it for me, anyway.
Until I discovered the Starbucks latte. I was so ashamed of myself. I wanted to support the mom and pops, the corner coffee shop. But nobody can make a latte the way Starbucks can.
Slowly, on early, cold, stressful mornings at the office, I found myself meandering toward the coffee pot and enjoying a cup here and there. No sugar, just creamer. Co-workers would make fun of it--'Want a little coffee for your milk?" ha. ha. At first, I watered it down. And then I would follow my cup with my usual English Breakfast. But soon, I liked the caffeine jump I got from the coffee.
Fast forward to a year later and now, each morning, I make a whole, big pot just for myself. I don't water it down anymore and I put less creamer in it. I actually like the taste. The creamy, strong goodness.
It's become my morning ritual and I SO appreciate my coffee.
What's your favorite coffee drink?
