I must admit that I am kind of a “heavy” coffee drinker, since I really love the taste and the smell of a good coffee blend. Drinking coffee is part of my daily rituals. I like drinking wines as well, but coffee is probably what I drink most in a day, apart from water. I am not really a “tea person”, as I drink it only when I am sick or cold.
Back to coffee now. I drink one or two cups of coffee in the mornings, strong and dark, and one in the afternoon. I don’t take coffee with milk that often, because I heard coffee + milk is not really a good combination and it fats that way more… And because I can not get to taste the real coffee if it is mixed with milk.
Coffee is good for waking up in the mornings – it increases blood sugar a bit – they say it burns fat or just substitutes eating something when hungry (and you are on a diet) – lowers the risk of diabetes – is full of antioxidants etc.
When I was younger I was drinking different types of coffees like Cappuccino, Mocha, Latte etc. But since recent years I prefer it black, like the Turkish or Greek one, or long espresso, Americano (espresso with added hot water), filter coffee… and always NO SUGAR added.
I must say here that I am not advertising any of the brands mentioned below in the text, just giving you examples of what tastes I like.
Turkish or Greek coffee are cooked in a specific way, in a tin jar like on the photo:
