We all know that I’m a coffee fiend. Recently, I asked readers to tell me their favorite hot beverage. You know. The one they curl up with when they’re reading a great book. Because I always have a drink nearby, and I figured my readers do, too.
Turns out that was a good guess.
More than 80% of the readers who responded to my question said their favorite beverage was black coffee. (Which, incidentally, is my favorite, too.) The remaining 20% enjoyed coffee with cream or sugar or both, tea, hot chocolate, and a variety of other beverages (some with alcohol and some without).
If you follow me on Facebook, you already know I post a lot of coffee memes. People enjoy them. Seems like coffee drinkers have a sense of humor around their favorite beverage, too. You can check out our favorites here: https://www.facebook.com/DianeCapriBooks
I write several different fiction series and very often I find my characters enjoying all the various coffees I like. One of my favorites is Cuban Cafe con Leche. If you’re a coffee lover and haven’t tried it, you’re missing out! You don’t need to make a trip to Spain or Cuba or even Miami or Tampa to enjoy this one. Recipes abound. Here’s one that works well: https://barefeetinthekitchen.com/how-to-make-spanish-cafe-con-leche/
How about you? When you’re curling up with a good book and it’s a little cold outside, what’s your favorite hot beverage?
