Ok… so I am a little bit of a coffee snob. I like good coffee. Rich coffee. Smooth coffee. I don’t like it bitter. I don’t like it too sweet. But more than anything else, I don’t like to put a lid on it. Why? BECAUSE YOU CAN’T TASTE IT! So much of taste is smell. Put one of those teeny-holed lids on and say bye bye to the nuances of the drink that you just spent as much as $5 on. Considering that coffee has more flavor depth than wine, why do we sip wine from goblets and coffee from a paper cup out of a peep hole within a plastic lid?
Europeans think Americans are insane for taking our coffee to go and sipping it as we drive. And I get it. Watch the video for much more of my thoughts, plus a few interesting facts on the topic of coffee.
