G'day All!

Thought I would pop in here being somewhat of a coffee drinker myself (especially mochachinno's coz then I get my hit of caffeine with chocolate which is another fave of mine)...although I do enjoy green tea with jasmine or peppermint tea or earl grey tea or caramel hot choc drinks...variety is the spice of life I say...

Dnise thats a beaut poem...love love love it sweetie!!! :)

And those bliss buns sound very delish Linda... :D

Ahem... *throat clearing*

Something to share...

This Chinese lady is not really an avid coffee drinker but she was rather pleased with herself for knowing how to order in German (as she's living in Austria) and she really likes a particular Austrian coffee...

This lady and her friend were at this cafe. She took the liberty to order because she's the one who could speak German better (as her friend was new in Austria and he's from Columbia).

A waitress approaches...

(This was in German and of course, in English as this 'girl' couldn't really speak fluent German yet! But I'll write it all in English anyway...)

Waitress: What can I get you?

L: *confidently!* I would like to have a melange (pronounced it as me-lang-e) , please and he will have a Murauer beer (an Austrian beer)?

W: *paused a moment* Errrm... you mean, melange? (She pronounced it as me-launch.)

L: *Burst into laughter (and feeling sooooo embarassed) corrected herself and...

*sigh*

You can imagine that this lady was ME!

So now, I can remember how to pronounce Melange properly now. And whenever I have my cup of coffee, it's always a cheerful thing as we had a 'cosy' moment already.

Coffee.... *sigh*... The aroma and the people that we share it with... enjoy enjoy ENJOY!! ^_*

I enjoyed that coffee story schmetterling...BIG smile :D

and I forgot about chai soulsista....I haven't had it for ages but I used to drink it all the time...I prefer the spicy not sweet type...and I love the ginger in it!

Right now tho' I am having my usual a heaped teaspoon of instant coffee with one level teaspoon of sugar and a dash of milk...

Always a real Italian cappuccino (please guys note the correct spelling...).

When you go into an Italian coffee shop, you'll be trapped in your senses by the scent of coffee and nice pastries...ah it is a delight...I miss it!

Yes, Lorenza, you are right about the fragrance of espresso in the Italian bars. But I am sorry I prefer the "Café crème" à la suisse, being Swiss, but the cappuccino is nice too, especially with the chocolate powder over it!

Vuoi mettere!

Dear Virginia, I only just now read that you love espresso. It's too strong for me. I love this coffee and tea meeting here!

Besos.

MMMMhhhhhhhh mamma che buono! I get now why you read a french book, write in english and probably speak Italian at home. Only Swiss people can do that! I am 'atypical" as Italian because I also speak 3 languages.... :D:
