I don’t like to run out of coffee! I don’t drink much, but I do like at least one cup a day with breakfast. I drink it black, but not overly strong. A l’Americano, I suppose. Drinking it this way means the flavour is very important, milk or cream changes it and it isn’t the flavour of the coffee that is the main taste. Consequently, I’m fussy about my coffee.
We usually buy Fairtrade from our local Sainsbury’s, and alternate the choice so that I don’t get bored! Ethiopian, Colombian, or Costa Rican, (the latter because we know someone who had a coffee plantation there). We also buy from Waitrose or M&S, and here online, but not Tescos or the other supermarkets as we don’t have one nearby. However, we did run out, and it was just as we went away. The only chance we had to replace it was at a Motorway Service Area. Of course, we should have done it on the way ‘out’, but thinking that it wouldn’t be a problem we decided to buy it on the way home.
Disaster! (Well, in coffee terms)
The only Service Area that was open didn’t have supermarket – the only place to buy coffee was Starbucks!
This should be a good thing. Should it?
What a disappointment!
This was the only coffee available to purchase
Yuk! It was horrible, and I thought a total waste of money. It’s practically tasteless. I nearly threw it away, but then I had a stroke of genius. (LOL, only in coffee terms……)
I mixed it!
In a ratio of one third of the above to two thirds of this
Incidently, I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it again, my absolute favourite coffee is this one. Yum, better order some more now that I’ve thought about it!
