Not so, an Americano is an espresso with added water. Quite different.

I prefer coffee with my milk rather than milk with my coffee.

I put in (precisely) 5ml milk, then pour in coffee to the "fill line" in my mug. Milk with added coffee tastes much better than coffee with added milk.


It also saves having to stir.

I feel stirred to say that I always add milk or cream after. However, with instant coffee, who the heck cares *what* I do with it!

Beemer,

After reading that thread, I must say those people have absolutely no serious issues in their life.

Now if we want to argue the correct methodology to practicing our beloved instrument, now that is worth a discussion.

Of course you can have my coffee when they pry it out of my dead cold hand.

Like that thread stated we need to give Bennevis a blind taste test to confirm milk first.

Thanks for posting that thread Beemer!

I wonder how long we can keep this thread going, on coffee no less. Who would have thought...

No need. grin

Like everything I say (well, most of the time cool), it's based on strict scientific principles.

When you add hot coffee to milk, you don't stir. You don't even shake à la 007. You don't need to use any cold metal implement at all, which might give your beverage an unwanted metallic taste.

That, in a nutshell (which has no metal), is precisely why coffee with milk is always better than milk with coffee. Because it's just pure, unadulterated milk with added coffee, untainted by anything.

I agree. I always pour the coconut milk/cream in first, then the coffee - no need to stir anything. People at work do that opposite, and then use those plastic red straws to stir, throw it in the wastebasket, which then ends up in a landfill, and then birds eat it, and can't digest it, stomachs fill with all this plastic crap and then end up starving to death ... Watch "A Plastic Ocean". It's pretty sad.

Fascinating, I never stir my coffee, I just pour the milk into my coffee in my 20 oz. stainless steel mug, put the lid on and drink. The less steps to my coffee in the morning the better. On weekends I drink about 48 oz. of coffee with 12 oz. of milk. During the week 32 oz. have to cut back a little bit. It makes for playing those fast scores easier.


Have to tie this thread into music somehow.

Coconut milk has much more saturated fat than cow's (or any other animal's) milk, but - apparently - it's "good" saturated fat.

So they say.......

Yea, I don't let the saturated fat stuff scare me too much. I started going that way when I changed my diet and followed what's called Wheat Belly. Fat is good for you smile

So that's the diet I'm on! I highly recommend it. It's modus operandi is how uncivilised it is.

I highly recommend it too. Not a diet, just a new way of life smile I've been following that since the fall of 2014. I'll never go back to eating how I did before. I'm always amazed by the success stories that Dr. Davis posts.
