Surprise! First good cup of coffee since days now
July 27, 2012 6:42am CST
May I should start the story from last autumn. We bought a can heating water. The perfect excuse for me to buy dry coffee, the brand I was using is Nescafe. I was drinking 3 in 1 - coffee, cream, sugar. We were spending lots of money lately about buying such coffee, just because it was more easy to be prepared. Just turn on the button of the can and in few minutes we were already drinking a cup. As you probably know, such mixes with cream and sugar doesn't have a lot of coffee inside, but are extra sweet. One small package was not enough, so I got used to make two packages in one cup. And was drinking around 10 packages a day, knowing it doesn't have much coffee inside each package. But lately I cut this expense and bought a package of normal coffee for boiling in small pot. One package of this coffee is enough for a week, for both of us and the price was very small compared with prices of this small packages I was buying time ago. But it looked like I forgot how to make such coffee really strong. I love the coffee really strong in the morning, I add some sugar and that's how it wakes me up very fast. I have been trying to do it like before since days, but it was never happening. The taste was weak even if I was putting lots of coffee in the pot. Today while I went down to buy a package of cigarettes, my boyfriend offered me to prepare the coffee. I got home and there was a hot cup of coffee waiting for me. I couldn't wait long before I try it, because usually I don't go out without drinking coffee first. And here it is - a great surprise. My boyfriend made exactly what I was used to drink long ago, but couldn't succeed to make last days. The perfect coffee for me was little sweet, but still bitter because of being strong. I am so glad my boyfriend offered this, because he promised to make it like that every day for future.

Good for you! Being a coffee addict myself, I know the pleasure of having your kinda coffee after days without (or settling for a not so good substitute). I also drink Nescafe 3-in-1 or the brewed one. I like mine with little coffee and cream. It is a morning staple; nothing really screams of good morning than the aroma of brewing coffee.

Oh yes, nothing beats the real thing. And I agree it's more economical than packets of 3-in-1. It's like they have the coffee, creamer and sugar mixed to suit someone else's tastes. Some variant do offer strong coffee, but they didn't taste as near strong as the brewed one.

True, I agree. I guess it's all because of the chemical taste of the coffee. As example if I try to put normal Nescafe teaspoon with sugar and cream it doesn't taste like 3 in 1. I don't know what they put inside each small package, but probably my proportions are wrong or they just use different recipe for different products to make us buy the one we want to drink.

People say that white chocolate is the worst chocolate you can eat because it is unhealthy. But oh lordie, when I tasted instant white chocolate coffee stored in sachets - my heart soared. It tasted so creamy and it was a purely delightful coffee. Now, I don't care what other people say, white chocolate coffee is definitely for me.
