Suffice it to say that I have always quite enjoyed a nice piping hot cup of coffee. Cold coffee is exceptionally good too, but I practically inevitably get my share of the most Delectable of brews hot.
I really wish I could have gotten into the habit of drinking it black, but I get too violently ill if I have it that way, so I need milk. Unlike many people, who find flavored coffee Unpalatable, I quite enjoy it. At the Coffee Nut Cafe’, in Long Beach, where I usually get my daily cup, they have quite a wide variety of flavors, including cherry, raspberry, and blueberry. I’ve gone there so regularly over the course of the past five years that the girls who work there have gotten to know me. Gentle Brew, where I go less frequently because it’s slightly farther down the street, also has quite an impressive array of coffees. I go there once in a while on weekends to get breakfast too.
There are only two coffees I’ve never been able to handle. They’re Sanka, which today’s young people seem never to have heard of, and Starbuck’s. As far as I’m concerned they’re both quite nasty. The only difference I can see is that Starbuck’s is trendy, has an unforgivable political affiliation, and offers a variety of flavors. Sanka is just plain and inconspicuous. They’re both completely Unwelcome anywhere near me.
Sanka/Starbuck’s: real coffee::Cold weather:hot weather
I’m only expressing my opinion, but it’s quite an exceptionally intense one.
