When I worked at Starbucks, there were a lot of early morning clients who wanted to order black coffee to get them started. We were required to ask whether they wanted the bold coffee of the day or the mild coffee of the day. Just about everyone responded with, "The bolder the better." What about you? Do you drink coffee black? And, would you prefer bold in the morning or mild? The interesting thing is that the bolder the coffee, the less caffeine it has in it. Because it is roasted longer, more caffeine is cooked away, but it has a less bitter taste. So, bold and less bitter, but with less caffeine? Or, mild and as much caffeine as possible?
