Coffee training II

My experiment is coming along well. Over the last couple of weeks I've been steadily exploring the world of coffee and I'm beginning to understand why people drink this stuff.

I started with lattes, then mochas, before I found cappuccini. The cappucino I had in the SCR yesterday was actually tasty, even by the standards of other tasty drinks such as tea and hot chocolate! As I write this I'm drinking an Americano. I didn't actually realise it was black until the foam parted, but despite this it is more or less drinkable.

I've also been able to confirm what is already common knowledge - that coffee perks you up! I don't ever remember tea having this effect (although I'm probably immune to it by now). My preliminary hypothesis so far is that tea merely relaxes you and makes you feel better, whereas coffee gives you energy.

Another strikingly obvious observation I've made is that real coffee is much much better than vending machine coffee.
