I absolutely love my coffee! I couldn’t possibly function daily without it. It’s definitely my go to drink. I rarely drink other hot drinks other than the odd cup of tea but i really have to be in the mood for that. If i’m out it’s generally a Latte or a Flat White and usually always either Starbucks or Caffe Nero (Costa is just way too weak).
Usually in a morning i reach for the easiest which is Nescafe Azera. Before this i used to use the instant granules but since i started to use this i could never have a normal coffee again. This is the middle ground. Has the instant coffee hit and doesn’t taste dissimilar to a filter coffee.
Today whilst shopping in Asda i spotted some new coffee (well new to me!) and as it was only £2.50 i thought if i didn’t like it then i hadn’t wasted an exorbitant amount of cash. Well no, no thank you Asda. It’s way to bitter and harsh for my liking. On first appearance it looks like a filter coffee but does disperse well in water. It left a really horrible taste in my mouth so that will be resigned to the cupboard as a backup to my back up if ever i run out (in other words it’ll still be there in a couple of years).
Throughout the day it’s filter coffee for me these days. I only used to make it about once every weeks but since coming back from the States where it’s the staple drink (and they always seem to get it right!) i have found myself making some if not every day then every other day. My go to blend is the House Blend from Starbucks. I love it. It’s a smooth, rich taste and you don’t need too much for a nice deep cuppa. I don’t actually like it too strong but it’s easy to add a bit of water if you’ve added too much coffee. I used to use a cafetiere but these days i use my trusty peculator, it’s just really easy.
Occasionally if i really want filter coffee but i’m pressed for time i’ll get out my drip feeder. This means i can get a good cup of coffee but fairly quickly.
Right, time to take 10 minutes to sit with a bit of TV and this beaut before i have to make dinner!
