If I wanted to blat out the taste I would rather cover it in cold milk and ice and blend it with syrup, cookies a banana, chocolate chips and cover it in can whipped cream ?????



You're right...you're right.

I do take sugar in my espresso, but not because I like it...oh no...oh no. I take it because I'm a sophisticate and it's a sophisticated thing to do.

Would you also consider this to be applicable as an explanation regarding your wife-boarding habits? :shock: ;)

Not really. The latter is merely a harmless fetish. 8)

I was in a coffee bar in Naples with my friend, chatting about life as you do when I noticed him putting six spoons of sugar into his coffee. I told him that I didn't know he liked sweet coffee and he said 'I don't, who said I would stir?'

sugar..dont be absurd. i am, however, partial to the odd bit of chilli ground up with my morning filter. the odd peppercorn or cardamom pod doesnt go amiss either.
