I subscribe to a blog written by Oscar Hokeah, who wrote a post describing himself as a coffee snob.
For original article by Oscar see http://oscarhokeah.wordpress.com/2011/08/06/quickies-bad-coffee-for-suckas/
In the blog by Oscar he describes how he likes a rich coffee that eases his headaches and a pleasure for him to drink.
My experience of coffee drinking are very different, I am foremost a tea drinker however the pressures of life mainly the final year of university have forced my hand.
I am now an occasional coffee drinker; it started with an uttered word of coffee instead of a morning a word that carries a shared understanding a feeling of amongst the group. To outsiders may be seen as ignorance but to us a bond of unity. That was how I become a coffee drinker.
Like most coffee drinkers I have a ‘taste’ of coffee I prefer, I like rich good quality without a bitter after taste. This is unusual for someone who hated coffee to develop so quickly, although for me what is more important than the taste is the container it comes in.
If the cup that it is drunk from is of importance to me, if the cup is too small it seems like a waste of money with little satisfaction. However if I am served a huge mug, it is overpowering the coffee tastes watered down rather than full of flavour. As well as this it is usual freezing by the end, this supports that mug size is vital.
Coffee sellers out there mug size is vital get it right don’t put your customers off before they buy or they won’t come back to your lovely coffee.
