Don't ask me why, but I'm slowly trying to start drinking coffee.... When it comes to hot drinks, it's still 80% tea with the occasional hot chocolate (something that also took me 25 years to like), but the past few weeks I've been working up to coffee.

Stages passed:

Stage one: hot chocolate
Stage two: choco-coffee (50/50)
Stage three: Wiener melange (half coffee, quarter milk, quarter hot choc)
Stage four (this week): cappuccino (with cocoa powder on top)

Not sure what my next stage should be. Coffee with milk and sugar? Or should I bravely shock my system by going straight for espresso? The worst part is: this isn't even decent coffee, it all comes straight from one of those big company vendor machines (Douwe Egberts). We *do* have an italian coffee-bar in the main lounge, but that quality shit ain't free. The vendor coffee is ;)

Espresso does not contain as much caffeine as filtered coffee (or even worse, french press). It does however contain almost all of the flavour in a concentrated amount.

Go from the freezedried/vending machine coffee to french press. The press will allow you to make the coffee as strong or light as you like it. And if you get ground coffee, store it in an airtight tin in the fridge.
