I drink coffee now. I have to admit, I never liked coffee. It tasted bitter, had a rancid aftertaste in the mouth, and even gave me stomach upset at times. I never really enjoyed it much. Until...
I tried making and cooking my own coffee! It was always instant for me when I was younger. Decaf or caffeinated, they all tasted the same to me. But I have always wondered what people see in coffee that they keep asking for another cup after another cup.
I recently read up on coffee and found all of its beneficial properties. As well as the right way to enjoy it. And how to make that perfect cup.
And after getting convinced that coffee is, in fact, good for the body and tastes great, I studied the 'art' of cooking coffee! Starting off with a drip coffeemaker and a tub of Folgers I got at the local grocery here, I made my first cup. And it didn't take me more than one first sip to change my entire belief about it.
Now, I enjoy coffee twice a day. It starts and ends it! Yes, I am a late bloomer! :))
