buying coffee just now
« on: April 26, 2012, 11:35:32 PM »
Me: I’ll have a large flat white please
Girl: No worries – that’s one sugar, right?
Me: No sugar thanks
Girl: Dammit! I always want to give you sugar!

I deserve a medal for keeping a straight face.

I don't understand coffee orders that don't involve words like half-caf or venti.

As a tea drinker I wish that coffee shops offered a decent range of quality tea :/
Unfortunately no. All they usually have is bulk crap tea or Tazo.

What I wouldn't give for a high quality earl grey or a proper orange pekoe...
I swear sometimes I feel like I was born on the wrong continent for my palette.

Lovely story though miles, made me chuckle. :)
Cheers!

Lol, you should have at least told her you're married just to see the look on her face. ;)

As a fellow tea drinker I concur! However, this being England, we've got lots of tea shops too, just none in my town. :( It's either Starbucks, Costas, Subway or Sainsbury's Cafe, all do crappy tea.

Pardon my ignorance, but what the hell is a  "a large flat white?"

I ground my own beans (kona) and make fresk coffee every morning. I am not familiar with these terms.

or as my husband says "I like my women like coffee, ground up and in the freezer." ;D

we have an excellent coffe place that roasts its own and has this great blend of dark,light and medium roasts.  I'd personally love to open a tea shop here in the states but in central PA, not sure if it could make it.

Sometimes I envy coffee.  Its the first thing my wife wants to put her lips on in the morning.  :(

It would appear that after Starbucks now I have to have a cappuchino.(sp?)  That's a problem, since I can no longer stand coffee at work. 
I also have a hot tea craving - the aroma is what gets me there.  A nicely made tea can be a good night-cap...

Good tea is awesome. I hear the Americans are at a disadvantage in terms of what tea is available to them. At least Brit I hear going over to America say the tea is horrible. I'm such a tea whore that I buy only tea leaves and I stock up different types of tea, though I can't compete with my friend who has a cupboard just for her variations of tea.

This is an awesome tea-shop in Nottingham I visit when I'm in the area, they also have an online store and I believe they ship tea as well.

Seriously, some of the best tea I've ever had. ;)

On which note:



So that thing about how we shouldn't stereotype people? I probably am not helping myself here.



As for coffee, there's only one coffee I've ever tried and liked, I just can't for the life of me remember what brand.

prof elemental!  excellent.    Well, in the states, we can get PG Tips  :)  I generally prefer teas from http://www.republicoftea.com/  but since I am not currently flush with money, I get Bigelow's Earl Grey.
