I drink my coffee black. Almost exclusively. The only time I add cream is when the coffee tastes bad, but I still need caffeine.
Today, at my girlfriend’s request, I ordered an “iced cinnamon coffee” at a particular pastry shop. The server asked if I needed “room for creme.” Since my girlfriend also takes her coffee black, I said no.
The beverage we received was closer in color to creme than it was to coffee. Apparently, at this establishment, iced cinnamon coffee consists of ice, cinamon, coffee, and a large portion of milk.
Then why was I asked if I needed room for creme?
