And the bulk of the coffee drinkers I know are retired navy, who will drink any dark sludge as long as it has caffeine. Do people in Europe treat coffee as something beyond a simple vehicle for necessary caffeine intake?
Using purely personal experience, I only ever drink tea at home. But if I’m having dinner in a restaurant, or just having a quick stop somewhere for lunch, then it will only be coffee, never tea. So the coffee thing is more about the taste after food and never for the caffeine intake.
