Roll in to work, settle in for half an hour or so, and then head to the tearoom to make a cup of coffee. A good way to get one’s head in for a nice morning building databases. But that’s further down the list of Best Ways to Drink Coffee…
- A nice cosy cafe, without overly-loud music, tables a good height and not rocking, and nothing at all to do for a good few hours. Espresso.
- The office coffee machine, or ‘coffee printer’ — as it really does behave more like a noisy dot-matrix printer.
- Mocca-pot, or (secondly) frech press, at home with just-ground beans and a clean kitchen in which to make it. The choice of cup is far more satisfying here.
- A ”coffee bag” can be surprisingly good if all else fails.
Note that the muck they call instant coffee does not appear in this list.
