One of my favourite things. I like “real” coffee and I like certain instant coffees, much to my daughters disgust, sorry Meaghan. I have a super dooper, ridiculously expensive, coffee machine with all the swish and gurgle and hiss, that makes a great coffee. I am besotted with Moccona Exotic No 4. Alas, Exotic No4 has disappeared from the shelves and I can get no information about it. I am inconsolable. I tried another Moccona but it is horrible. But, to add insult to injury I appear to have lost my coffee taste buds. Of course I blame Covid and self isolation.
I am unaware of ever having a bad coffee reaction. So many people I know have that “No coffee after 11:00am” complaint. Me, I drank coffee all day and all night if I was awake. I could take a coffee to bed and sleep all night. A coffee at my favourite cafe was THE event of each day. My only reason for living (seriously). Covid took that away. I ran out of Exotic No 4. I have been coping by alternating instant and brewed. But in the last few weeks I have had less and less of either. In the last two days I have found that I do not finish my mug/cup. Tonight I barely managed to take a single sip of a brewed. It tasted terrible.
I wish I was an alcoholic.
