It is not known exactly when people started drinking coffee, but there are theories.
I am a coffee drinker. Always have been. When I was young my Mom would make hot chocolate for my brothers and sister, but I had Mom's version of Café au Lait... heated up milk with instant A&P coffee stirred in.
And I'm with Juan, I don't like flavoured coffees. I like my coffee to taste like coffee. With lots of cream, probably from my Café au Lait days. My family and friends know not to talk to me in the morning until I've had my coffee.
I also like my Coffee.. crisp (Canadian joke)
