My name is Rory Street and I'm a coffee addict, my last coffee was 2hrs ago, a smooth tasting full blend Illy Italian Coffee and I am busy thinking of my next cup.
Coffee addiction is something that affects a lot of people in Britain and even more in the USA. I usually find that after I have been on coffee for a couple of months and need to lessen my dependency on it that I usually have to switch to tea. Funny enough tea has more caffeine than coffee however the caffeine is a lot more gentler for you than coffee. Don't ask why, because I really don't understand it. But switching to tea and then gradually moving onto a caffeine free drink such as Rooibos tea (Afrikaans for Red bush tea) seems to work wonders.
Coffee quality also plays a strong part. I used to be an avid Star Bucks coffee drinker until I discovered the joys of Illy coffee from a little coffee shop in Windsor called Claremonts, next time you are in Windsor site seeing I heartily recommend it. Claremonts isn't to far from Windsor castle you can find it on your way from the castle walking along the high street opposite Windsor Parish Church. They don't just do coffee they also do tea, pastries, smoothies, hot chocolate, sandwiches and a great egg benedicts among other things.
Illy coffee is a nice smooth blend of coffee which makes it so different to coffee you get from the main chains who usually use mixed blends which lets down the flavour of the coffee I have found. I used to have my coffee with sugar but after I discovered Illy coffee the taste was so smooth I didn't need to anymore. I have tried drinking coffee without milk, last time I was in the USA they didn't seem that keen on adding milk to coffee, for some reason they thought it ruined the taste unfortunately I still can't bring myself to do without it.
