There is almost no one who can imagine beginning the day without the morning coffee and its intoxicating scent. After water, coffee is the most consumed drink in the world – more than 1.6 billion cups of coffee are consumed daily. Some drink it without sugar, some with milk; the Italians like to consume it with a slice of lemon, and in Morocco with different spices. Most people like their coffee with milk, sugar or flavors like vanilla and chocolate. There are various different types of coffee, and anyone can find its favorite one. But those who like it black are in minority, and there are tales about us. What do people believe about us who love a cup of black coffee, and are there any truths to that?
“We don’t understand other coffees”
Well, we’ll have to disappoint you. Preferring black coffee does not mean that we do not enjoy those other types. Most people who drink black coffee have also tried the cafe latte, cappuccino, espresso, mocha, and maybe even the Irish coffee. Most of us do like to make informed decisions. And we love those options – really! But going back all the time to that essential black coffee just means that we may love our complicated lives, but we like our coffee simple and strong.
“Minimalist fashion style”
When it comes to our clothing, it is mostly stated that we like a minimalistic style. There are numerous articles on the internet in which it is written that most of our wardrobe features clothing pieces in black and white. Is it like that? Maybe black coffee seems too “stern” for everyone, but that doesn’t mean we are too. Not liking unnecessary flavors and “details” in our preferred drink doesn’t mean that we don’t surround ourselves with all colors of life.
“We only drink it when we have to”
Most people think black coffee is something that is brewed exclusively when you need to stay awake when you have to study for exams or to complete a big project at work. Well, we have news for you – it’s not a caffeine energy drink, it’s a delight in a cup. People just don’t fully grasp what a charm black coffee is. We drink it not out of necessity, but out of pleasure.
“Those who love it want to be ‘sober’ from life”
It is said that fans of this drink do not like the chaos of life. But just because we like our coffee to be a little more “straightforward”, it doesn’t mean that our life is. We’re just a little more focused on substance instead of semblance, at least regarding our favorite drink. We don’t need coffee to “sober us up” from life, and no, we are not “sober” already. We just love its full flavor just like we love having a full life.
“We only drink it in the morning”
There is this view that black coffee is some secret way of waking up and focusing, not just in the morning but in times of crisis too. Well, that is not the whole truth. It is a great drink to have at any time, but we do have our preferences. Not every black coffee is the same; there are varieties of taste, aroma, and process of preparation. A good cup of coffee has the perfect taste and aroma that seduces. Although simple, strong and heavy, it fulfils all the senses, every time. Not just in the morning. But it’s not for everyone’s taste.
“Simple life asks for a simple cup of coffee”
Most say that people who love black coffee do not like this complicated world. They see us as artists, individuals; whimsical and quiet. They think we are practical and believe solely in logic. It is also believed that people who drink it are a little nervous, and have frequent mood swings. Well, they may have guessed one thing – most of us like to start the day with no chaos and no-nonsense. But it seems that is true for the majority of people on this planet, so… The truth is: black coffee doesn’t give us any superpowers (that is all us).
