About me

Mine’s a long-black, although it hasn’t always been. There was a day when my only black drink of choice would have been the soft variety with too much fizz. Thankfully my sister took me to a café where she made it quite clear ‘You can’t order a coke. Seriously? You’re having a coffee’. And out came the coffees.

It would be great to say that that very first taste was the best; my moment of coffee truth, but before my sister could say ‘So what do you think…’ I had already poured three sugars, stirred, knocked it back and was sitting there thinking ‘was that it?’ not that it wasn’t a potentially good coffee – the years of sugar-numbing soft drinks had just paid its toll.

Fast forward several years of weaning myself off the sugar, a few more decent cafes around London, quite a bit of travelling, tasting amazing single origins, and I am fixated with the black stuff. I’m still partial to a sugar fix now and then, and will quite happily indulge in one with ice and a bit of cream, but given the choice I’ll always go back to black.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m not the biggest coffee fan I admit, though Esquires here did a very nice Gingerbread latte at Christmas that I could’ve dived into head first 🙂
