Becoming a coffee drinker...

When I was little I hated milk and honestly I still think it is kind of gross. I am talking about all milk, cows, almond, coconut… I am just not a fan. My nana believed that all kids should drink at least one glass of milk a day. Her plan to get me to drink my glass of milk was to serve it warm with a lot of sugar and a splash of coffee… she started giving me this when I was 4 years old. As I got older I would ask for more coffee and less milk, which resulted in me drinking very sweet black coffee by the time I was 13!   

I drank coffee with sugar until I was 20 when I started to watch my sugar intake and since then I have enjoyed black coffee, at least a cup or two, everyday ; )

How did you start drinking coffee? How do you take it?
