Cwoffee- a paean to the bean


A less gag-cartoony, more oblique approach to Tim Hayward's FT Weekend food column. This was a considered piece about coffee. The writer contends that whilst the coffee we drink has in recent times improved immeasurably, in some of his his more lasting memories involving coffee the brew itself was of variable quality (sometimes downright undrinkable).
An Italian I met recently bemoaned the Chain coffee stores' interpretation of coffee and how English people drank coffee in too large quantities, drowned with milk, a view echoed in this article.
