apologies if spelt wrong!
I tried espresso once and (no offence intended), but I thought I was dying. Lordy that was strong coffee!! I honestly thought my teeth were melting!
My dad makes tea every 20 minutes ALL DAY!! He has a small ceramic 'bucket' (actually a huge mug), because without it he'd make it every 5-10 minutes. It's so strong it'd melt a spoon, and that's the way I've drunk ever since I was about 3-4 years old!! When we know my parents are coming to visit we have to buy extra milk!! Mine is even stronger coz I only have skimmed milk now (diet, and other milks make me feel sick as I've been on it so long now).
So you could say it IS genetic in my case!! Certainly in my Dad's we're thinking of asking for an intravenous drip for him if he ever went into hospital. He gets sick, headachy and very irritable if he has to go more than two hours without a cup!!!!
I doubt I will ever see Portobello Road again! Central London is a bit away for me now!
But we have an American Coffee house a 30 minute drive away. When we want to splash out, we go there for cappacinos! They may not do my CPH any good, but boy are NICE!!!!
