    More coffee mate, you think so? Not for me, as trust me what was there was STRONG [14.5g of ground beans], so even when topped up with milk, the coffee flavour was very prominent and shone through - I defo wouldn't want it any stronger, and so think 3 shots in the one cup (that size anyway) would be too much

    Ah I see, fair enough... I hate 'raw' cold milk, but when frothed up like that, especially the super-fresh/creamy stuff we get from the dairy, in the context of a milky coffee, especially with some chocolate added, I love it!

    At the bottom of the cup, I always use a spoon to scoop up the milky, 'coffee-infused choco-foam' - YUM!

    Weirdly am not a big fan of warmed or frothed milk. I think itís because I like espresso (through a machine) or Americano (through a dripper), and have always just used cold milk.

    I am a huge fan of crema though, and to break the rules to enjoy the occasional Cortado or Macchiato.

    Yeah, whatever you're into, mate

    I'm Italian, so a frothy cappuccino (or latte) with breakfast is near-mandatory, but in Italy frowned upon after 11am, after which it's espressos or macchiatos all the way until the following morning.

    I like all GOOD forms of coffee [read as made properly with freshly ground beans], even French press or the drip stuff you like. I don't 'do' instant though, or anything that hasn't been made in a proper machine by someone who knows what they're doing.

    I just have high standards with everything that I eat or drink!
