With a little help from my friends, who have a coffeemaker, I have begun to drink straight black coffee.
My coffee-connoisseur friend’s recommendation was to do it cold turkey. For those of you who wish to drink straight coffee, my advice is:
a. Do it cold turkey, it actually works. and:
b. Stop thinking of it as a Starbucks beverage like a mocha or a chai tea latte. They’re not even in the same family. Think of it as a particularly strong type of tea. Savor its bitterness for its own sake.
