Today is apparently the first ever International Coffee Day, which means nothing to me since I'm a non-coffee drinker (please put down those pitchforks). I'm open to becoming a coffee convert so I might as well kickstart my journey on this auspicious day with a bit of research into this brewed drink. Dear LH readers. What's your perfect cup of coffee?

Everybody seems to have an opinion on what makes for a good cup of coffee. It's a subjective thing but I've seen impassioned people debate over everything from what coffee beans should be used, the temperature of the milk (if you put any at all), to what cup it should be served in.
I've always been curious about coffee but never really had the compulsion to drink it. I figured I was getting enough caffeine from the copious amounts of Coca-Cola I was consuming. But given that I've scaled back on soft drinks recently, I need to find my caffeine fix from other sources, so I might just give coffee a go.
But where do I even start? With a mocha, cappuccino or a concentrated hit of espresso? I'm keen to find out what you think makes for a perfect cup of coffee. There's no right or wrong answer. Let me know in the comments below.
