Coffee has always been a part of my life. Growing up with my coffee-drinking grandparents, I was always around it and would even drink coffee from Papa's cup, and he drank it straight black. Granny on the other hand, she filled her coffee cup with milk every morning, took her pills with most of the milk, but always left just enough milk in her cup to pour in coffee for the right balance. She also liked iced coffee which Papa never drank.
I always thought I liked coffee like Papa, straight black, until one day, in college, when I went to my first Starbucks. Yep, I was about 18 before I went to Starbucks for the first time. It's incredibly overwhleming for someone who has only ever drank coffee black or those little Starbuck frappucinos that you can buy in 4-packs at grocery stores. And, because those were the only things I knew, I remember ordering a caramel frappucino. Fast forward now 7 years later and I'm no longer intimidated by Starbucks or other coffee shops. I still order frappucinos, but only because I really like them. But I also order coffee, lattes and other coffee-related drinks. I like my coffee the most with just flavored creamer. No extra milk, no extra sugar, just flavored creamer like hazelnut, amaretto or the classic vanilla. I also like my coffee to be a medium-dark roast. I want it to be strong enough that I know I'm drinking coffee. And yes, sometimes, mostly in the winter, I'll have a cuppa decaf at night while watching my shows.
