How to Like Coffee


If you haven't said it, you've heard it been said--"This tastes like dirt." Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world and is imported to the United States from dozens of countries. Coffee is strong, versatile, caffeinated and...gross. Since coffee lovers can't seem to convince coffee haters through persuasive speech alone, here are a few ways you can learn to like (or maybe even love) a cup of joe.

  • Start with hot cocoa. Prepare a cup of hot chocolate and a cup of coffee when you get up in the morning. Drink the hot chocolate, but take in the smells the coffee produces. Do this several mornings in a row.

  • Make it weak. Purchase a mild-flavored coffee with low acidity and make your first cups of java with less than the recommended measurements. The result will be a watery cup with subtle coffee taste.

  • Add milk or cream. Many coffee drinkers learn to love the taste by adding whole milk, skim milk, half & half or cream. Milk is so popular in coffee that many people never break this habit. You will often hear baristas at coffee shops ask, "Would you like me to leave room for cream?"

  • Dump in some sugar. Adding generous portions of sugar may help coffee haters become coffee lovers.

  • Move gradually from heavily flavored coffees to regular brews. Cappuccinos are a good drink to start with because they have a very mild flavor. Vanilla, caramel or mocha (chocolate) are also good for covering up a coffee taste.

  • Keep drinking a daily cup of coffee. It is common to hear that coffee is an acquired taste. This rings true for most people. Don't give up if you initially resist the taste; it will grow on you.

Tips & Warnings

  • Drinking iced coffee is a good technique for teaching your taste buds to enjoy a regular cup of java.
