Tea v Coffee

Just reading a thing by David Mitchell in the Guardian about how he always wanted to drink coffee because drinking coffee is cool. No, no, no! Drinking coffee is not cool. The minute so many Tom, Dick and Harry's are jumping onto the coffee bandwagon that there is a Starbucks or a Caffe Nero on every corner, coffee has clearly lost any cool cache that it ever had.

I'm a confirmed tea drinker myself. The other day at work we were in another of an interminable series of meetings. There were about 10 people there, with the usual polyglot mongrel range of nationalities, English, Indian, Malaysian (me!) and ze French. Someone volunteered to do a tea run - all round the table he went: tea, peppermint tea, a nice hot cup of tea, oh tea please - even the Frenchman asked for tea. It was like an episode of Family at War, if anyone remembers that ancient telly series.

Coffee. Definitely coffee. Get yourself a Nespresso machine for your office and you will be addicted in a nano. Go for the Brazilian. Wonderful aroma.
