I am not a coffee person.
I have never gotten a taste for the world's top beverage of choice. Sure, I've been inticed by the strong warm smell of freshly brewed coffee, but I just can't stand to drink it. Its taken me years to be able to drink even mild herbal teas.
My sister is a different story. If given the chance, she could drink a whole pot, and I have to say that I'm a little jealous sometimes that she has that ability to get that extra boost in the morning, while I slug along. I've had little sleep the past few nights with busy days and I would love to be able to get up and start my day with a nice warm drink and a little caffeine kick.
That being said, in my family's house being a non-coffee drinker does not get you off of coffee making duty if you're the first one up in the morning. I've known the EXACT ratio for that coffee pot for years. I can do it in my sleep (and I often am still a little asleep).
Maybe someday I'll get into the habit and enjoy it. For now I'll just admire those girls who can sit in Starbucks or grab a cup and walk around the mall.
So now I throw it back to you:
Are you a coffee drinker?
Just a little jump start in the morning? Or are you downing cups throughout the day? Do you like something with a little chocolate like a cafe mocha? All black all the time? I'd love to hear what gets you going in the morning!
