If you didn’t already know, I like my coffee. Now as always, I am not a normal coffee drinker. It just would not be in true form if I was a normal coffee drinker now would it LOL. I oddly only drink coffee when I am out or travelling. I very rarely drink coffee at home or at someone else’s home. While I am at home or visiting a friends house, I then become a tea drinker? Work that one out???
Saying this, even though I only drink coffee while I am out and about I have noticed a very gradual change with my coffee purchases. Over the years the average price of a takeaway coffee has increased. Nothing surprising there. BUT it is the size of the takeaway cup that has me questioning things. The size of the average take away coffee has slowly decreased. To the point the other day that I had to ask the lady at the counter if she had given me the incorrect order or the incorrect size. My coffee was THAT small, I truely believed she had given me someone else’s or she had misheard my order 😱.
Now, I am not a coffee snob, BUT it is sad that I almost have to give in to the sheep and go to a chained coffee shop (see cartoon logo on the Zombie for which one). And even then, I have to order what I considered to be a large coffee and ask for a Venti. Isn’t large, large? I can hear you all shouting out COFFEE SNOB. BUT outside of America, Zombie-Buck coffees just simply aren’t the best. They are WAY too sweet and hardly ever taste like a coffee. I am guessing this is mostly because they use their own branded milk – overly sweet American tasting milk.
NOW – stop right there if you are about to slam me for American-bashing. I love America and LOVE visiting America. You just have to read past posts to see how much I love America – HECK, I have visited 47 of 50 American States. In my opinion, I just find America a tad too sweet favoured – food wise, but that is a whole other post and I will have to leave that for another day. As, I am currently out and about, and my coffee order has just been called – well they called out Fable – so I am guessing that’s Mabel.
