I do not drink coffee at all. I am a Leaf Tea person!! However,I have coffee trees in my garden which produce a very good crop each year.I have harvested and roasted the beans, which I then give to my coffee-drinking friends.So far they all say how lovely the coffee is!! I must admit,that I simply ADORE the aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans,and fully understand why fresh made coffee is often used in Display Homes to put people at ease!
I don't drink coffee myself but I keep two cafetieres and a decent ground coffee - I think it's an Italian brand, the name escapes me! - for guests and workmen. My parents are big coffee drinkers and quite particular how it is made, so it's mostly for their benefit but it does mean I don't have to offer instant rubbish to other people!
I'm not a coffee fan. I used to keep ground coffee (usually from Oxfam, so fair trade) and a caffetiere for guests but the coffee kept going stale between visitors so I've pretty much given up. We have instant, or lots of nice tea.
I only drink ground coffee and cannot drink instant coffee yuk... I drink herbal tea rather than drink instant coffee.
When I have visitors I buy a very small jar of instant just in case which goes solid in the pantry with lack of use.
flat white in winter, ice coffee in summer when we are out.
my favourite time for the wonderful smell of coffee is when the weather is grey, light rain, and the lights are on a cafe, early morning or evening.
