Well, guess what? I'm drinking my coffee black now.
Or anyways, I am when I get decent coffee. (Sorry mom, I don't really like your favorite coffee.)
I was already a fan of Seattle's Best Coffee, so I latched on to their stuff. And I like it just as much black as I do when they make it into a mocha for me. In particular, I like their Level 5 coffee, which seems to be their strongest.
Perhaps the most remarkable part of my change in taste is that it finally allows me to understand the differences between different coffees better. Before, I learned to taste the difference between how various places made their lattes. But I don't think I properly understood that part of the taste has to do with the raw coffee...that there was more to it than what milk and syrups are used.
My changing taste is definitely an adventure, and is helping me to better appreciate (and understand) coffee. I'll spend some time appreciating the Seattle's Best Level 5, but look forward to exploring other types eventually.
What's your favorite coffee? Any suggestions on where to take my coffee adventures?
