I’m a tea drinker. Although I like the smell of coffee, I don’t drink it. The same goes for wine and cigars. That won’t come as a surprise, since cigars aren’t really drinking material, but you get the general idea. Anyway, somewhere along the line I decided that learning to drink beer was challenge enough and coffee.. Nah. This has its disadvantages, though. For example, people will always offer “Coffee?”. Some will remember, some won’t, that you’re one of those people that don’t drink coffee. Then there’s the fact that the expression goes “going out for a cup of coffee” and the fact that you use this expression makes it confusing for people.
However, by far the main disadvantage is the following: I don’t know how to make a cup of coffee. Haven’t got a clue. Oh, yes, there’s the basic ingredients: Water and coffee powder. But I have no idea how much coffee to add to, say, four cups of coffee. So if you ever come over to my place and you’re one of those coffee drinking folks, don’t be surprised when I point you to our coffee machine (yes, we do have one), point out the accessories and ingredients and walk away.
Coffee’s not my cup of tea 😛
