I beat you by two years. I used to drink coffeemilk, (half coffee, half scalded whole milk) much like others would drink cocoa, at six years of age. My parents would also take me and my siblings to New Orleans Cafe du Monde where we would get the same thing in french, (cafe au lait) with beinets.
I started with milk and sugar, but we were camping one time and didn’t have any. I wasn’t sure I wanted to try coffee black, but my mom said to give it a try. She told me once you learned to like it black you wouldn’t want cream or sugar anymore. I was skeptical, but, well...mother knows best. I rarely add anything to my coffee (unless it’s a cup of inferior brew). I’ve become such a complete coffee snob that I started roasting my own at home about 5 or 6 years ago. That way I get the absolute freshest, top-grade coffee. I highly recommend home roasting if you are a coffee lover. It’s fun, and you get the best coffee you’ll likely ever taste.
