Coffee Complications

I have a special relationship with coffee. I imagine I would be bereft without it. An espresso is my favourite, a cappuccino just mmmm.

So imagine my absolute socially isolated embarrassment at having bought decaf. By mistake! I don’t believe in decaf…it’s like sucking out the core of coffee to make people feel somehow healthy about their decision. Not. For. Me.

I thought I did well, strength no. 4 (tick), ground to save me pouring in beans and pressing a button (tick), coffee machine cleaned (tick) and packet carefully opened. In went the coffee to the little thingy and I pressed it down with my pressy down thing before pretending to be a barista and attaching it to my coffee machine.

Whilst still pretending to be a barista, by pouring milk and sticking in the steam spout thingy, I looked wistfully over at my packet of coffee. The world slowed down. Noooooooooooooooooooooo (in a slow motion sounding no). It can’t be. It bloody well is. That says decaf. On strength 4 coffee. My head did not compute.

Probably due to the clear lack of caffeine I was about to drink.

You know when you are standing arguing in your head about something that you have clearly done. That was me. There was no getting away from the label. Other than blaming the company for making the words decaf a little too small. My fault though. Agggghhhhhh so very annoying. I am usually quite discerning about my coffee choice. How did this happen? I blame….anyone and anything other than myself….Ok I blame myself.

Is there any point to decaf coffee?

Asking for a very stupid…ahem…friend who now is drinking it (due to her not wasting things issues).

  1. My deepest sympathies…….decaf, there is no way to describe the sheer disappointment I feel on your behalf right now. I too love my coffee, so much so that I bought an stove top espresso maker. Because I need a couple of double shots of the stuff for work sometimes. I don’t understand decaf either, in my opinion there’s no point of decaf. 😎☕️☕️
