Ahh, that first cup of the day. There is no taste quite like the first sip – whether you do the full caffeine, half decaf, Americano or espresso. But I think the taste of coffee goes downhill throughout the day. (Might just be the office coffee). Until, of course, it’s a freshly brewed cup to finish off a fine meal. (Now I’m hungry, I digress).
For some of you, it’s been a long holiday weekend, complete with Black Friday madness. So to get your week jumpstarted, we salute the coffee bean with some of our favourite shots of caffeine from our kitchens and coffee shops around the globe.
The coffee counter in our kitchens contain a (not surprisingly) very similar set of paraphernalia — burr grinder, milk frother, French press and maple sugar for the perfect topping.
