How I Take My Coffee | nyxii's Blog
I take coffee in a number of different ways. Just like listening to the radio, I don't listen to just one station; I listen to whatever I feel like at the time..... Black, Milk, Cream, Regular, Black with Ice, Black with Sugar, Black with a Flavour Shot, Double Double (if I'm getting a hunger-headache), Regular with Flavour Shot. If it's excellent quality I usually take it Black. If it's instant coffee, like at someone's house, I usually need a flavour enhancer like Cream or Sugar.
My most recent coffee style, a Trinidadian guest at my establishment taught me. She said that people put some butter in their coffee if they're eating a muffin with it, instead of putting butter on the muffin. The butter melts, and sits on top, and you take a bite of muffin and a sip of the butter. I was shocked. I've been around coffee my whole, whole life (my life actually revolves around it in a very simple way) ... yet I was unaware of this apparently popular custom. (Then again, not very many Trinidadian people frequent my establishment so I never had occasion to chat about coffee customs or anything before.) I just had to try what she advised, and told her I would.
I really liked it. Now everytime I have it I'm reminded of her. What a woman. She had so much energy I couldn't believe she was almost sixty.
Hm... But actually, I think my favourite is Black coffee with Maple Syrup. Understandably no cafe around here offers that, but luckily I can cook my own coffee:)
