True. I'm cream and sugar, my folks always just black.
I remember the good old days when Starbucks was known as "Four Bucks".
I don't know how to order coffee anymore. I just want a bit of cream but the menus usually cover an entire wall.
I just stopped drinking coffee... a week ago... Not an easy thing I tell you!
Progress, isn't it wonderful?.
I've got a theory that whatever a country's national beverage, they like it straight and un-fannied about with, the Brits abhor tea with bizarre and exotic flavours such as we get here in France prefering it strong and plain with milk, but most French cafés would give you very short shrift if you asked for a cappucino, and a totally blank stare if you mentioned latte. Coffee here is black or creme, large or small, that's it, though I understand Starbucks is making inroads. I'm a bit contemptuous of the frothy coffee craze and all its flavours, I must say, it seems to me a move towards infantilisation, have a grown-up drink for goodness sake!
