No sugar, no milk or cream,
just plain black and bitter coffee.
It's like bread or rice that I can't bare to miss eating every day.
It's like a drug but good for health.
It keeps me strong and alive.
When I drink it after full meal,
it eliminates the bloated stomach.
A cupful before workout is endurance.
Coupling it with bread already completes my breakfast.
Afternoon snacks with coffee keeps me going
all through the evening.
But sugar, cream and milk
may make coffee sweet and great-tasting
but only in the mouth.
By the time it reaches my stomach,
it makes me wanna vomit.
They just make bad combination.
I believe coffee is meant to be consumed black and bitter
and never sweet.
but because it's expensive, I seldom drink it
like when strolling in the malls.
So I settle for the cheaper ones available at the grocery.
And of all the commercial coffee brands today,
for me nothing beats Nescafe Classic.
And I have been drinking the Nescafe Classic Stick
ever since I found out that it gave the freshest cup
with the most flavor and aroma unlike those in glass.
Because every time you open the glass cap,
the flavor and aroma escape
so by the time I drink the last few cups,
I immediately taste the dullness.
Its great bitter taste is diminished
and it's no longer as strong and flavorful.
One Nescafe Classic Stick serves a cup
and my next cup is still sealed in the stick
with all the freshness of flavor and aroma.
There are times when I felt bitter already
because of consuming too many cups.
I took sweet bread or cookie but I rarely pour cream or sugar.
Coffee is best consumed bitter
but I can always pair it with something flat or sweet.
And one thing I've noticed over the years,
it didn't keep me up at night like other people.
I could sleep soundly right after drinking coffee.
Is something wrong with that?
Let me know.
