5 Favourite Coffees

Dr Tanya is our host for the Five Things and this week it’s coffee!
Now here’s the thing, I am a tea drinker, and if Dr T had asked about five favourite teas, I would have been stumped. But coffee…………. well!

I am not a fan of strong coffee (tea or chocolate for that matter) but I do like these!


My choice of beverage when we’re out is always Latte coffee. Some places make it better than others, but I still prefer it to tea, mainly because it always seems too strong for my palate.

This used to be my choice until I discovered latte. Maggie liked the froth on the latte coffee, even getting her own (read here) but she could tell the difference and turn her nose up at a cappuccino.

Now you’re talking.
This would always be my grand finale after a meal out in a restaurant. Black coffee with Tia Maria and thick whipped cream on the top.

Similar to the above but using Cointreau instead of Tia Maria.

You can use rum, whisky or brandy as well in coffee with whipped cream and brown sugar.

All liqueur coffees are extravagant and you have to drink delicately otherwise you get a white Rudolph nose!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Di I can’t stand the taste of coffee! After all these years it isn’t likely I’ll ever develop a taste for it!

    I like an Americano coffee best. I’ve tried a few others but I’d struggle to find four more that I actually like.

    I like the sound of the Calypso

    My favourite is Irish coffee 💜💜

  5. We’ll do a post on tea too.
    Tea is my preferred option too since my system cannot manage coffee on a daily basis. But the flavour and aroma of coffee are something else.

    My favorite is Cafe Americano, which is four shots of espresso and hot water. It’s not quite as bitter as regular brewed coffee. Back in my drinking days, I used to like Irish coffee, which was black coffee with sugar, Irish whiskey, and whipped cream. Now, I drink instant and actually really like it.

    Once I figured out what Tia Maria was, Calypso sounded really good…
