Coffee is a pleasure year round but it takes on a particular importance in winter. Warming your hands around a huge mug, taking in the aroma before you take the first sip is one of the best things about winter.
Today, for 5ThingsTuesday, I am listing my favourite kinds of coffee and I invite you to do the same.
Nothing beats a good cappuccino. It doesn’t matter if you have it from a fancy cup or a takeaway cardboard cup, the taller the better. It’s a grand finale to a good dinner and a great accompaniment to a snack.
This tastes almost the same as a cappuccino but with less froth. You get more coffee for your money this way.
This is not the go to for sophisticated coffee aficionados. I sometimes suffer from gastritis so the greater milk content of a Latte takes the ‘bite’ out of the coffee for me.
4.Cold Coffee with Ice cream
This is the first kind of coffee that I started to like as a child. We used to get it in cafes, in tall glasses with straws as well as long spoons for the dollop of ice cream floating in it.
I developed a taste for this during a short stay in Insadong, a business district in Seoul. Corporate types as well as teeny boppers had it instead of cola drinks with their burgers and fries. There was a sugar syrup available to sweeten it but I preferred it on its own.
