Chapter Two of the Coffee Chronicles

So on the advice of Zdepthcharge (if that is your real name) I went to Max’s Deli and got a “real” cup of coffee, in pursuit of my quest to find another zero calorie beverage besides diet pop and water. They had some sugar free hazelnut syrup so I had her put a shot of that in to give it a bit of sweetness. The small cup was $2 plus change. I got outside and took a swig. I walked the 3 blocks home and put probably a quarter cup of Splenda in it. Okay, now it was sweet, but it still tasted rank. The only thing I could think of was to put a couple drops of licorice extract in it. I managed to finish it the next day after it had been chilling in the fridge all night. I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t like coffee, but I do like some coffee flavoured things. Well, at least I gave it a try and the next time someone asks me why I don’t drink coffee I can tell them this story.

  1. I’m totally with you on this. I love Iced Capuccinos, and coffee flavoured ice cream. And don’t get me started on the chocolate covered coffee beans!

    But coffee itself is bitter and gross. The only time I’ll drink it is when I’m freezing my ass off and it’s the only hot beverage around.

    Your mom’s right though. Tea is good, and there are lots of different types. I’m partial to a Twining’s Earl Grey. Mel picked me up some Lapsang Souchong which smells, I kid you not, like a campfire but actually tastes really good. I hear most people just add a bit to their own tea mixtures rather that drinking it straight.

  2. Well Toren, coffee IS for closers. At least if you were going to try it, you tried something better than the bean dust battery acid at 7-11.
    And if you try the Cormac McCarthy book, I can’t promise you’ll like it, but I can promise it will be a better experience than your coffee experiment.
    My real name is unpronounceable in human languages, but you can call me Craig.
