55/365: Me likey Americano



Ever since I was a little kid, I always had this fascination with coffee. I would take a sip of my mom's coffee whenever I could because I thought it was delicious! I also loved the smell of coffee. But I never thought I would like my coffee 'black'. I liked the aspect of having cream in the coffee but I didn't really like the bitter taste of plain coffee. During college years and teenage years, I always had frapps and blended coffee drinks. Nowadays, I always get Americano with a little room for cream. It's cheap, it's less fattening, and I've grown to like the taste of black coffee!

Why is that? Why is it that as we get older, our taste buds change? I can't drink regular soda anymore because it became way too sweet. I rarely ever eat candy, and a lot of desserts are too sweet and I usually opt for the tart kinds. I guess it's kind of evolutionary in a way. As we get older, our bodies don't function the same way as it used to. Our metabolism slows down. Our body slowly breaks down. So I guess in a way, a change in taste buds is a way to enforce ourselves to eat healthier too. It kinda makes sense I guess. Most of the things I loved eating as a kid, I can't stand to eating anymore as an adult. But one thing has remained true, and that is that I will always love coffee in whatever form it comes in.
