I have spent some of the time pacing up and down, wasting too much time surfing the web (a dangerously addictive habit if one let's it get a hold!), re-scheduling work again and again, and......going out for coffee whilst shopping for some clothes for the up and coming holiday to Edinburgh. I like authentic cafes, where one can simply take a seat and have table service take all the strain. However, occasionally Costas, or preferably Marks & Spencers Cafe have to do, and it was whilst queueing in the latter today that it struck me. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO COFFEE?
I like mine with a little warm milk or cream, or sometimes a nerve jolting double espresso, but that should be as far as it goes. I blame the humble cappucino for the demise, as people started to get all fussy and ponsy with their frothy tops and chocolate powder needs. Now we have frappachinos, soya lattes with cinnamon, mochachinos, frappelattes and syrups, nutmeg, squirty cream and marshmallows.........aaarrrggghhhhh! Please lets have the return of coffee....black or white, maybe the queues will move more quickly as well!....Cheers, I'm going for a beer!
