My first coffee drinking experience was not a pretty one. But, 40 years later I now enjoy my coffee! Very much.
All things take their time to mature, glad to hear you’re a coffee drinker now.
I don’t think I started drinking coffee until a coffee shop opened in our remote-ish Michigan town in the ’90’s. I think it was a fancy mocha with whipped cream. It was lovely. Unfortunately I got hooked on fancy coffee drinks with lots of calories.
My favorite coffee story though is remembering my grandmother, kind of out of the blue, telling me when I was pretty young, to wait until I was 40 to start drinking coffee – that’s when I would really need it. 🙂
My first experience with coffee was watching the percolator every morning in my family kitchen. And tasting my mom’s coffee and being shocked at how sweet it was, this ‘adult’ drink that was so mysterious for so long. Then in college I worked at a cafeteria and fell in love with coffee over ice in the afternoon….
My first coffee experience was in Brussels at a cafe at Grand Place in Brussels. I was 15 and it was an Irish Coffee after dinner. I felt so grown up.
My parents were not coffee drinkers. However, back in the 80’s mom went through a phase of trying to be one by drinking International House of Coffee’s Suisse Mocha instant coffee that came in the little tin. I think I tried it but I can’t consider it my first coffee! It wasn’t until my college days at the University of Wisconsin-Madison when I sipped my first cup of good organic, locally roasted, small batch coffee! Needless to say, I’m hooked!
I tried drinking coffee every once in awhile since my late teens, but never developed a taste for it. I do enjoy the smell of it, however.
I do enjoy a slice of mocha chocolate cake or mud pie 🙂
If selected, I would donate the coffee to the office coffee club and let my coworkers enjoy a fabulous cup of joe, instead of making a Starbucks run.
About 10 years ago a dear friend was going blind, he needed to change his career, loved coffee, so he became a coffee roaster. My first experience with good coffee was from him. He asked me if I would be his guinny-pig and taste his samples, I said yes !! I was amazed with the flavor and aroma of fresh roasted, fresh ground, and the pour over brew. His business is doing very well, and I’m the lucky girl who drinks his coffee everyday.
I first started drinking coffee while helping at a summer camp for what back then we called “retarded” “kids” (half of whom were adults). I was 14, and was shell shocked at first. Having to get up at 5:30 am, and going to bed at 11:30 or so (how fun to hang out late at night with fellow counselors), I made friends with the perk pot in the office. That turned out to be one of the most amazing weeks of my life, as the campers were soooo amazing, and the whole experience transformative. The coffee habit stuck, but I’m a bit more descriminating in my coffee taste now. Heading to the market for a Fable pour over in a little while!
my first coffee drinking experience was when I was in college, and would hangout in the coffee shop next to my house. they had a pour-over bar and I was hooked. nothing beats that first cup of coffee in the morning, especially when prepared perfectly! I’ve been a pour-over enthusiast every morning for as long as I can remember drinking coffee. 🙂
Cool! I won! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Good luck to everyone in hopes you win coffee! Yum 🙂 – Maggie
Oh I love Saturday markets…looks awesome.
First coffee drinking episode? I remember thinking I was so grown up drinking coffee with lots of milk and sugar when I was in middle school…things haven’t changed much…LOL.
Love that you started drinking coffee in middle school… timeless, that’s you 🙂
I started drinking coffee in my early 20’s when I moved to Marin County, we’d go to a coffee house in SF called “Coffee Grind” the first time I had a mocha coffee there, I was spinning and so jittery, couldn’t believe it!! Anyway, I love my morning coffee now but I have to use my hand mixer to foam my milk, must have this!!!
Nothing better than a good cup of coffee to start or end the day!
