Shock horror - I just don't like coffee!


It's true I don't like coffee! I like the smell of it but the taste makes me make a funny face and say "bleurgh". You'll have seen in my blog The You Code that I learnt a few things about my daily choices and body language and my choice of not liking coffee meant that I was a wuss! A wuss yes that's right.

I drink tea and I love hot chocolate it's just I don't like the taste of coffee. I never have and until I read the book I thought I never would. I've tried at different times to get into liking coffee by having the odd coffee drink when I'm out, just to say I've tried it and I didn't like it.

Apparently though it takes 21 days to change my cycle of disgust. So I decided I would start this coffee challenge, and see if after 21 days I would continue to drink coffee and most importantly drink it out of choice. Spurs boy loves coffee and possibly drinks too much coffee a day. I think he'd prefer to order as he puts it a much more "normal hot drink" for me when we go out rather than hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows :-) We have a nespresso machine that I use only to make Spurs boy his coffee but I will try out in this challenge and try making my own.
I knew I'd have to start off with a very weak coffee to start off with and would need it to be very milky! Otherwise I'll be put off from the start.

Day One -1 very milky coffee with 2 sugars, finished it.
Day Two -1 very milky coffee with 2 sugars, finished it.
Day Three - Spurs boy made me an espresso and it was far too strong, he likes the nespresso capsules of strength 8+. I did finish it after topping it with milk though
Day Four - 1 nespresso latte strength 3, with 2 sugars, finished it.
Day Five -1 nespresso cappuccino strength 3, with lots of foamy cream, finished it.
Day Six -1 nespresso cappuccino strength 3, with lots of foamy cream, finished it. Also went to Starbucks and got a vanilla extra foam cappuccino - this was yummy!
Day Seven - 1 nespresso latte strength 3, with 2 sugars, finished it.
Day Eight - 1 nespresso latte strength 3, with 1 sugar. finished it.
Day Nine - Starbucks vanilla extra foam cappuccino, again yummy!
Day Ten -  Another Starbucks vanilla extra foam cappuccino, addicted I think!
Day Eleven - 1 nespresso cappuccino strength 3, with 1 sugar, finished it.
Day Twelve - 1 nespresso latte strength 3, with 1 sugar, finished it.
Day Thirteen - Starbucks vanilla extra foam cappuccino, again yummy!
Day Fourteen (today) - 1 nespresso cappuccino strength 3, with foamy cream, 1 sugar, finished it.
So far so good. Although I'm only having one coffee a day at the moment I still sometimes find the taste too much and that's why I've needed sugar to make it sweeter. I bought a vanilla syrup today that from tomorrow I will be using as I really like the vanilla cappuccino at Starbucks (you may have noticed).

I don't feel that drinking a coffee is a chore each day and in fact I've liked the routine of it, so maybe I was a wuss. I'll let you know how the rest of the 21 days go.

Do you like coffee or are you a wuss? Is there anything else you don't like that maybe in 21 days you could end up liking?

I don't like coffee either. People act like you have three heads when you balk at a cup. It's bitter and horrid.
