Mmmm ... coffee

Coffee meme found at White Thoughts

Your first cup, when do you drink it?

We have strict priorities to be observed in this house. First bathroom (usually accompanied by two lady cats), then cats' breakfast must be served. Then I usually put the coffee on so it can brew itself while I take the dog out. I get my coffee a.s.a.p. after that.

 How many cups a day do you drink?

Unless I go out and have any extras in a cafe, I ration myself to three.

Decaf or real?

It's not really coffee without the caffeine.

Sugar, milk or cream?

(Soya) milk only, if anything.

Your favourite way of brewing?

I do agree that the Moka Express stovetop coffee maker produces excellent coffee and, they are the most common here in Spain still, but in practice I find them a bit of a fiddle and tend to use an electric filter coffee maker instead. I wish I could find another single cup version.

With whom do you prefer to enjoy your coffee?


Your favourite brand?

Cafe Coronas. It's 100% natural, distributed in Tenerife and it's cheap.

Where do you prefer to drink your coffee?

No particular preference, but there's definitely something luxurious and smug inducing about drinking a leisurely coffee outside in the square on Christmas Night, wearing only a light jacket or cardigan.

What does your favourite cup look like?

A plain white cup or mug.

Espresso, Cappuccino or Latte Macchiato?

This is Spain, coffee does come in many varieties, but we don't really go in for all these fashionable names and variations. People also don't seem to have set preferences and rather, drink different types of coffee at different times of the day; cafe con leche (coffee with milk) for breakfast; a small, black espresso after a meal; a cortado during a quick afternoon break and so forth.

Favourite occupation while drinking coffee?

None in particular, but it does follow that I normally bring my coffee to the computer when I begin what passes for work each day.
