My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics
I’m not a huge caffeinated drink consumer. More specifically, I’m not a huge coffee drinker. I am often curious of how people like their coffee. A person’s preference with the smallest things are a bit of a window into their likes and dislikes with other things in life. I recently asked my friend Karleton how he liked his coffee and he stated “black with 2 Splenda”. This morning, he crossed my mind while I was preparing my cup of coffee because he’s always drinking a cup first thing in the morning. So I decided to try it the way he drinks it. You know what they say, “the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice”, right? I opted for “the blacker the berry the sweeter the… coffee?”. Yeah, that shit was far from the sweet taste I prefer. I like my coffee with cream and about the same amount of sugars as Karleton. There I was coughing and scrambling for a few more bags of Splenda than the two I had originally put in my cup. That bitter taste was enough to awaken the dead and then some. Because I was drinking a 21 ounce of coffee, I obviously added more creams and Splendas than I usually would if the cup was a 6 to 8 ounce cup of coffee. I added a slight bit of cream, just enough to change the coloration to a brown tone almost the color of my own skin. I took a sip through my straw and boy was that taste of sweetness a relief. Yes, I drink my coffee through a straw because aside from the fact that I like to savor the taste of something I so rarely consume, I also like to avoid discoloring my teeth. So sue me. My dentist approves.
How do you like your coffee/tea? How does the way you make your coffee, speak to who you are as a person?
