Not a coffee drinker

Not a coffee drinker

Coffee smells good but tastes bad. I understand it’s an acquired taste, by why bother? There are so many other delicious drinks to be had.

And if you think I’m alone, check out this quote from a recent Telegraph Article:

“For many it is the first highlight of the day, just when you need it most: the scent of freshly brewed coffee wafting through the house first thing in the morning.

But scientists claim to have solved the mystery of why coffee never tastes as good as it smells.

The act of swallowing the drink sends a burst of aroma up the back of the nose from inside the mouth, activating a “second sense of smell” in the brain that is less receptive to the flavour, causing a completely different and less satisfying sensation.”

Also if anyone is wondering, the above-pictured drink is actually foamed milk, honey, and cinnamon. My drink of choice at any coffee shop.
