James May bemoans the fact that we are abandoning tea in favour coffee, as pointed out by Blognor Regis. His theory is that this has betrayed our cultural heritage and is the reason why we don’t invesnt anything decent these days.
Not sure how that squares with the coffee house culture that thrived in this country from the 1600s onwards, the very time when we were laying down our industrial heritage. Perhaps it was just an effete London thing shunned by real men who were into spanners, grease and steam. And tea.
Whatever, if you do like your coffee, I recommend cold caffè latte by Emmi. Straight from the fridge, a 15 second shake, and you have the most delicious drink, especially the choco latte. Beautiful.
