Tell us about your morning coffee routine. For instance, what time do you have your first cup of coffee or espresso? How do you make it? Do you take milk or sweetener? Do you drink it before you officially start your day or do you have it as you're already starting to get things done? Is it a solo or shared experience?
For the most part, I will have a glass of water when I first wake up, then have my first cup of brewed coffee with a little skim milk around 9am, generally solo, and generally as I am just starting whatever it is I am doing that morning, whether sitting at my laptop and typing or working at a client or starting a recipe. I never use any sweetener in my coffee. There is one exception to this: sometime, when I am in Italy and having an afternoon espresso, I will put a little sugar in it. I figure the I am on vacation so it is ok. :)
How much coffee do you drink in a normal day?
☑️ 1-2 cups
Too many to count!
In your experience, which country has the best coffee? Why?
While I love the taste and boldness of Italian coffee, I really do love American coffee culture. I love the 'ritual' of drinking a larger cup of coffee over a longer period of time. I love meeting friends for coffee. I love a big hot cup of coffee when it is cold outside.
When did you start drinking coffee regularly?
☑️ In my teens
In my 20s
In my 30s
In my 40s or later
