He doesn't like my coffee?

April 25, 2008 1:19am CST
Yesterday two foreign colleagues came to have a meeting. This was a circular and personal meeting, once with one person for about one hour. When it came to my boss's turn, it's about 3 o'clock, and two people had already talked. So one of my colleagues walked up to me and said the two foreigners are too sleepy, they need a cup of coffee to refresh. Luckily i've thought about it and had already made coffee. To my surprise, after the meeting, i found one cup of coffee had be drunk out, while the other's not. It seemed that the drinker had one taste and then never touched it again. I didn't attend the meeting, but i can imagine his diamay, maybe shrug his shoulder and frown. What do you usually make your coffee? Do people like yours?

People tend to be picky about their coffee. I like mine very strong but many Americans don't. People don't like mine at all here. For my in-laws I have to add extra water to water it down. It's too funny. In turn their coffee doesn't wake me up at all. Don't fret it. Maybe the person wasn't even a coffee drinker to begin with.

He may have liked your coffee but may have been talking through the meeting and by the time he got round to drinking it it was cold, that happens a lot. At least one was appreciated and drunk. Ellie :D

They don't drink cold coffee? One of my colleagues say that some foreigner can't get used to hot Chinese food, they like cold ones. Maybe coffee's not in the list huh? He's too busy working, yeah, that's probably. Thanks, i couldn't thank you more for your encouragement. I just want to find the reasons and improve next time:)
