... or tea? Now that I'm kind of stuck in an office situation, I sometimes get some coffee. Here in NOLA, they put a pinch of salt in the grinds before brewing it - they say it takes the edge off. Salted coffee isn't bad, though. So, anyway, I take my coffee with a decent amount of sugar. I find milk/creams in drinks very off putting. My hot teas I drink straight or with honey. my iced teas with a pound of sugar... mmmm sweet tea! (that's how we do it in the south!) But if I'm at starbucks, I go for the iced americano with a generous shot of vanilla syrup~ waaaay better than iced coffee and actually a refreshing drink. when i go in there, though, it brings back memories of my barrista days... and the fact that i can tell almost to the very second how long a shot took to pull (lingo translation: how long the espresso took to 'brew')... is not a skill one generally can put on a resume... So, how do you take your coffee?
