As mentioned many, many times on this blog, say it with me, I am NOT really a coffee drinker. I just like a little coffee flavor in my milk :)
However, I am very particular about that “little flavor”.
You probably think that with all the milk in the coffee, I won’t be able to actually really taste the coffee and to some degree that might be true (you know how “bad coffee” can be saved with a little bit of milk?!), BUT, I argue that even though at least half of my coffee mug is filled with milk, I can exactly tell you if the other half, the coffee, is any good.
By now, I have also created a list of the places at which I will definitely, only-if-I-really-feel-like-some or definitely not drink coffee in the future. Seriously, some places brew a really mean cup of joe :(
It is definitely worth investing a little bit of money to get some decent tasting coffee and not buy the pre-ground coffee from the grocery store. Many people seem to be used to getting inexpensive, bad-tasting coffee, but this does not have to be the case. Buying coffee beans and grinding them yourself makes a BIG difference, for example, and coffee grinders are really inexpensive these days.
