When it comes to coffee I’m specific and unwavering. I like a very strong brew nearly bitter with a solid dose of half and half. In a good coffee shop (not Starbcks!) I’ll enjoy the occasional Cafe A’lait or a dry Cappucino.
No sugar, no milk of any kind and certainly not almond or soy milk! It’s extremely rare that I am without half and half in the house. I will skip my morning coffee if I’m out. I’ll refuse coffee at a friends house without half and half. It’s the only way I like it. Flavored creamers don’t even do the trick. I’ll pass.
Half and half and butter are the only dairy foods which are guaranteed not to send my tummy into immediate distress. The doctor says it’s the fat content in them. For cereal and cooking purposes I always have almond milk in the fridge. Do you see the disaster coming?
It’s been almost a year since I put almond milk in my coffee and got the harsh reminder of just how terrible it is. I ran out of half and half a few days ago and have been sans coffee. The need for a cup kicked in. I did the unthinkable and poured almond milk in it!
The twisted look of sheer disgust took over my face as I reeled at the taste. I managed to be gracious enough not to spit it out. I did what every good girl does. “Here Daddy, you taste.” Misery loves company, afterall. He is a black coffee drinker, so He never likes my coffee. lol He took the tiniest of sips before the same look spread across His face. That big cup of steaming hot coffee went right down the kitchen sink.
The coffee disaster of 2021. Perhaps this year I’ll learn and not torutre myself with this again next year.
