I used to drink coffee, socially, in my late teens and early twenties. Then in '95 when Hubby and I moved to Sydney, I couldn't drink it anymore. I think coffee is generally made stronger here (and often not so well), so I had to stop drinking it altogether because it actually made me feel anxious!
In fact, the only time I'd drink coffee during those fifteen or so years, was on the odd trip to Melbourne. (Now there's a place you find mostly good coffees.)
Hubby has always enjoyed a good cup of coffee though, so for his birthday in 2009, I bought him a really good coffee machine. Put it this way: it grinds the beans and you can make a cappuccino just by pushing a single button. Even I can make a good coffee now. ;)
One morning late last year, the waft of freshly brewed coffee filling the air, I suddenly felt the urge for my first cup in a very long time.
And loved it.
Since then, I've indulged almost daily in a cappuccino or latte each morning (and I make a great bubbaccino for the 4yr old). It's a lovely ritual, if anything. A little time to just sit down with an excuse not to move for five minutes or so.

Are you a coffee or tea drinker? If you drink coffee, what's your fave? Cappuccino, latte, flat white, espresso, macchiato?
