    Love coffee but take it very weak. Always went for only a half shot latte which I had to explain every time I bought one. (Went on for years). Costa staff seemed to understand that I wanted weak coffee more readily than anywhere else. There are now loads of smaller independent coffee shops near home and I have found one which allows me to order cup/glass of hot milk with the coffee shots served in separate wee jug!!

    We had coffee machine at home but it gave up the ghost about 18 months ago. Now we use one of those wee moka pots. Class.

    If they're the Cadburys ones then they are very nice.

    Loved the 'new to the coffee game' in the op.

    Tbf I mostly drink cups of black instant coffee because that is all that is in the work kitchen and I resent paying 2-3 quid a coffee outside (although tbf instant coffee is what I thought coffee was until I went to uni so no hardship). Having said that, there is a guy near me with a wee Arabic bakers/butchers who does a lovely coffee so I get one from him in the morning. Was at a market the other day though and had an Americano (2.75 ffs!) and it was * delicious

    Head to Costa and get an Iced Latte every morning before heading into work.

    I order ahead on my app and love it when there is a big queue when I walk in and moonwalk past everbody and pick up my drink. The look on some of their faces is priceless.

    Anyone who likes coffee, should try Vietnamese coffee. The Pho restaurant chain does it, but I’d imagine any Vietnamese restaurant will too.

    I’ll have a latte now & again, but not massive on hot drinks.

    If you drink black coffee, you need yer hard drive checked.

    Costa for extra shot cappuccino and no sprinkly gear. I can’t have more than 1 a day or I’m ready for lift off literally and have to catch myself sometimes because I’m running about as if the world is ending. And when the coffee kick leaves. Uuurgghhhh.:35:

    Gold Blend man at home, and as a few others have said, McDonalds coffee is actually a lot better than many coffee shops which is surprising considering their food, which is their main business after all , is generally *.

    That's quite similar to myself actually. I don't drink petrol or freshly cut grass but I love the smell of them.

    Hate the smell and the taste.

    True Fenians only drink green tea.
