I'm not sure the word "addiction" is fair as it implies the addiction makes my life difficult... However I confess I drink this a LOT! It has nearly stopped me from going to stay with a friend (she doesn't have it) and I don't drink coffee when out if I can get back home quickly enough to make this heavenly deep, smooth, strongly reminiscent of waking up in Paris, special twist of its own, unique, irresistible, aromatic and deeply satisfying, absolutely perfect blend of coffee. I do not like drinking it in public. People talk through that intense personal moment, they tread on the mystique of the magic as the aroma rises, the deep nuttiness awakes my tongue, the hot darkness coats my mouth and fills me with the intense joy of being overtaken by the scintillating excitement of the Grande Intenso!
