How to taste

First, smell the coffee. You can start by sniffing the coffee when it is freshly ground, and then smelling the brewed coffee to compare the two aromas. Besides the obvious coffee smell, what does each aroma remind you of? A plant or flower you've smelled? Wood? Earth? Leave your mind wide open.

Next, taste the coffee. To get the fullest flavor, we recommend you slurp it, taking the liquid into your mouth so that it spreads evenly over the entire surface of your tongue and reaches all of your taste buds at once. Don't be afraid to make a loud noise.

If it's possible, it's best to taste several different coffees side by side, so the comparisons you make are as fresh in your mind and taste buds as possible. Prepare all the samples the same way, so they are consistent with each other. Take your time, and enjoy the process. The more you taste, the better you get at it.

Coffee is heaven (well, close).

It brightens up my day, despite its dark colour.
It keeps me awake when I went to bed late.
It is smooth as silk, it aroma irresistable to those who know.
It goes well with sugar. It goes well without.
It is lovey with milk, but is not absolutely necessary.

You can order it at Starbucks, or buy it in Walmart.
You can choose Arabiacca, or Columbian.

Coffee, my passion.
Coffee, God's dearest creation.

There are not many choices of quick drinks really

Coffee, tea, softdrinks.

That's about all.

What is Chai ?

Sorry this is a new word for me.

By the way, over here in China, the most I see is "Nescafe" instant coffee at the supermarkets. Or sometimes there is Yunnan coffee ( I live in the southwest ).

I DO NOT like instant coffee. I have a lot of respect for Nescafe as a business entity, and must admit it is a quickest fit for those craving for coffee.

I like those coffee that needs to be brewed. Takes 10 minutes to make it, and I am in heaven for the next half day.
