[Podcast Intro/Outro Five is Average by Meteo Xavier]
I’m finally catching up on the podcast now that I’m back from Japan, and I wanted to join in on the coffee conversation.
First, let me say that hot cocoa was the only hot drink for me up until I was maybe 23. I might really enjoy the smell of a coffee, but like Joe said…it would still just taste like dirt. Tea was a pretty similar situation. It wasn’t until I bought myself a box of tea and said “That first bag was bad but I spent $2 on this so I’m using the remaining 19” that I found I could drink tea if it was at least 30% milk and sugar by volume. From then, I started drinking tea regularly.
I tried the same trick with coffee and…still hated it. Up until I was like 28, at which point it transitioned to “something I’d drink if I didn’t have to pay for it”. It’s only been in the past year that I’ve come to drink coffee regularly, but I think of it more as a dessert drink…something sweet I have with pancakes or cookies or ice cream, or after a meal as a dessert on its own. But I guess that makes sense when it’s basically coffee-flavored sugar milk at that point.
You can listen to the last half hour or so of the last official Off-Topic Podcast to hear more about my feelings about tea (and soda). You’ll note the absence of coffee from the conversation as I still hated it back in 2012.
