Cornerview: Coffee in East of England


England is well known as a tea-drinking nation and I am a little embarrassed to admit that the majority of people around here drink instant coffee. I am somewhat of enigma to my friends when I brew fresh coffee. I love it. I enjoy quite strong coffee with a little cream, no sugar. I think I developed my love of (real not instant) coffee when I lived in America, and I'm still addicted now.

So, a word of warning. If your ever in England and someone offers you coffee outside of a coffee house, you're more than likely to be served coffee from a jar.

I love playing tea party with fake british accents! And I love coffee even more...my major vice...i'm co-dependant upon it. Where in the states did you live?

Hi Michelle, I like the sound of your tea party, that made me laugh. I lived in NH for about 4 years. I will be doing a post soon telling a bit more about myself, like what Victoria did. I just have not got around to it yet.
