Hi, everyone!

There’s a question waiting for you all, and I’ll admit I got the idea from someone in the comments last week.

Ramble of the Day

Last week, someone made a very good point in the comments about how we should talk a bit about coffee since it says “Hoddle of Coffee” at the top of a page where we all gather on weekdays. I have rambled about my coffee curiosities before, so I won’t get into that. Instead, I’ll keep it a little bit simple for today, and I’ll pose a question: How do you drink your coffee, and if you don’t drink coffee, what is the beverage you usually drink instead?

(I had to include the second part of that question; I know quite a lot of not-coffee drinkers.)

I don’t drink coffee all the time; it’s mostly a taste-based craving, not a caffeine one, so I can limit my intake. If I’m making some at home, I usually drink it with a little bit of foamed up milk or black. If I’m out, I’ll settle for a latte — hot or iced, depends on the day. Café au lait is also a favorite, when available, and I’m good with cold brew, again, if the weather calls for it. I generally have a preference for beverages that aren’t particularly sugary.

There you have it. I’m looking forward to reading what you all like to drink.

tl;dr: Coffee, but not sweet.
