Coffee is without a doubt my favorite drink. I prefer it strong, hot and black but do make an exception every now and then when real cream is available. I don’t really compare coffee and tea because I see them as separate drinks each with their own merits. The thing I most look forward to when I get out of bed in the morning is a fresh hot cup of coffee, but the first thing I do when I get to work is boil water for tea. Each drink serves a purpose and each ritual has its place.
