I'm not allowed coffee very often, only when we have trees to chop down as I'm intolerant to it. It's like giving me speed.
But when i am allowed a coffee I like a freshly ground organic, fairtrade highly spiced coffee with some nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and allspice with a generous helping of soft brown sugar!
NOW will someone get me down off this roof please?
No I don't, I am sweet enough!
Seriously, I found sugar to be addictive, starting at half a teaspoon, progressing to a teaspoon, and then found I was having two teaspoons. This was in my teens, and I quickly worked out that this was not a good thing. Since then I have not taken sugar in my coffee. This cuts down not only my sugar consumption but my coffee consumption so I see that as a win-win situation.
I add the tiniest amount of sugar to my coffee. I don't want to change the taste much, I just find that a little sugar takes the bite out of it and calms down the acids. I have no proof that it actually does anything to the acids but I think it does, or at least it does so for me.
I have percolated coffee or a pod coffee at home, (I have 2 different pod coffee machines), & I have a coffee every single morning at home, after my breakfast, then when Iím out for the day, I usually have another coffee, but I have never had sugar in my coffee nor in my afternoon tea.
