This coffee break is brought to you by the lovely gentleman naughtynefarious. I’ve mentioned this before I think, I love memes for they give me something to blog about without me having to flex the curls of my brain as much. Similarly, this post is the kind of coffee that will be interesting to two of my friends, Zezil and Pot, one being a lover of coffee and the other a hater. So shall we have a go at the questions? Let’s see…
HOW MANY CUPS OF COFFEE PER DAY DO YOU DRINK?
I want to say between two to four but the real answer depends on how much writing and reading work I have for a day then the number can decrease or increase unceremoniously. Have you ever wondered why a cup of hot something is the perfect match for writing or reading? It’s an amazing thing that just occurred to me, as I cannot imagine myself diving into my most beloved words with a glass of soda. I can imagine me with Nutella, but not with soda.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CAFFEINE DELIVERY SYSTEM?
It shocks me, knowing other people take coffee other than orally. I like my coffee with the fixins though I try not to get a whole lot from the shops, not very healthy!
WHAT WAS YOUR BEST CUP OF COFFEE?
The best cup of coffee is the one made for me with the most love that it is not just coffee but an extension of a kind affection. I’m joking, of course. I’m not a loyal coffee drinker as I take to tea a lot like an old lady would, but there’s this coffee called Heaven’s Mocha from a corner coffee shop in the city that I happen to like and consume with every visit. It’s always best to have it with a book in tow over lazy, quiet weekends.
WHAT WAS YOUR WORST CUP OF COFFEE?
This is hard, because coffee is coffee, you know? Hmm… maybe the one in The Cordilleras, the first one I had early morning near the bus terminal. I’m freezing like fuck and the coffee proved to be disgusting but I had no choice but to revel in it.
WHAT DOES YOUR FAVORITE MUG SAY?
Would it be sacrilegious to say I don’t have a printed mug? I actually take my coffee on a white tea cup, yes, with the tiny green flowers around the rim. But if I have a favorite mug, I imagine it saying “Stop the coffee break and get to back work, you lazy fuck” or “You can’t live on coffee alone“.
HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR COFFEE?
Definitely in a mug and not thrown at me. With milk and sugar. I like making coffee for others, mind you. If I can, I avoid getting the ones from the coffee chains as one cup can pack a serious group of calories. I’d rather eat my calories than drink them, thank you very much.
WHEN DID YOU HAVE YOUR FIRST CUP?
I’m impressed actually, to learn that naughty nefarious remembers when he has had his first cup. I’d be lucky to remember when I had my last one! But what I know is that I’m never a big fan of coffee to begin with and the love affair started in college when I took to writing seriously.
HAVE YOU EVER GONE ON A COFFEE DATE?
Yes, several times in fact, and I’m keen on having more; and as I’m not required to say with whom, this is where I stop typing and simply smile.
