Why is it so impossible to just buy a simple cup of nice coffee. You bascially have a choice between stock Nescafe instant stuff out of a machine which takes absolutely awful, or a rather confusing choice of 15 fancy things with all sort of muck in them.
I have eventually ascertained that a 'latte' is about the nearest thing and so I have bought these from both 'Roccoco' and 'Cafe Library' or whatever they are called now. Don't get me wrong, in both cases the coffee itself was very nice but you have to fight your way through the froffy milk on top before you can get to it. This also means that for £1.15 or whatever, the coffee reaches only just past the half way mark, the rest is milk and air.
I just want a cup of coffee with a splash of milk in it, does everything have to be so damn trendy???
