I really wish I liked coffee

(viewed 1466 times)

This here, for example, is finest Cuban ground coffee and smells absolutely incredible - a deep, complex flavour with chocolate, fruit and tobacco tones nestling amongst other, more familiar coffee smells.

It should be a wonderfully sophisticated, pleasurable and delicate drink.but I only enjoy coffee in "hot milkshake" form (ie: lots of milk and sugar) thus destroying the deliciousness entirely.

See, this is where I get annoyed with myself. I can appreciate good coffee at every stage up to but not including the drinking. I genuinely enjoy the act of making coffee, I can discern quality from mediocre from terrible coffees, I can even tell you where the best shops (in Norwich at least) are for buying your organic fair-trade beans from (and why it's important to buy beans and grind 'em yourself). I adore the smell of coffee, either fresh-brewed, fresh-ground or just in out-a-packet-into-a-jar like in this photo.

But I don't like drinking the stuff. Unless heavily laced with sugar, in which case it make no difference what you made it with to start with, becuase it just tastes of sweet and caffiene.
