    I’m fussy and rarely drink coffee when I’m out because at home I can make it just how I like it.
    On the rare occasions I do have coffee out I ask for either a single or double shot of espresso in a standard size cup and about half the amount of hot water that they would usually add to make an Americano (they usually just bring me the hot water in a little jug and let me add it myself )

    I know
    I usually just drink water when I’m out - it’s much simpler

    Just water (I’m teetotal)
    I keep a jug of chilled tap water in the fridge and take an insulated bottle out and about with me.
    Boring, I know.

    I like cappuccino but cant find anywhere that can do it as i like. I dont like having half a cup of froth and prefer the froth to only be about an inch thick. As a result its latte every time for me.

    Americano when out. Given up on messy grounds at home and use the Kenco Miilicano now.

    Tastes as good with less mess.

    Depends on what blend you were using... (and some would say whether it was pre-ground or grind yourself from beans). Millicano is OK - better than Nescafe Azera. The Waitrose own-brand is surprisingly good if it's on special. Lavazza Prontissimo is a bit stronger and more espresso-ish.

    Most of the Taylor's of Harrogate is good for cafetiere use - but I prefer to play at being George Clooney and have different blends for morning, afternoon and after-dinner.

    Up til I got pregnant, I'd drink Almost Any coffee.

    Now it's mostly tea, but (!) coffee when travelling.

    Whyever not enjoy different coffees at different times of day?!
