Learn to find and drink good espresso. Once you stop eating a ton of sweets, your tounge (and brain) become more sensitive to the natural sweetness of espresso and steamed milk.
I drink a cortado 9 times a day and it's absolutely delicious.
It's hard to find good espresso. But when you do - it's wise to never ever give it up.
Hm! Any other tips for me?
Haha depends on what you're looking for. I work in specialty coffee, so I've got plenty to say
Tell me anything you please! I like dark roasts especially, and always drink it black now. I've had expresso a few times and it was always good and really strong.
But hands down, my biggest advice of all time
CLEAN. Clean coffee equipment is EVERYTHING. You can have the best machine in the world, but if it's dirty, you're going to be drinking rancid, moldy, disgusting coffee buildup. Clean a cheap coffee machine, and you'll at least be able to get something satisfying.
For more than a year, my ONLY job was cleaning the coffee pots at the end of EVERY DAY. It's that serious of a job. Love your equipment, and it'll love you right back.
Now you may not like what I have to say first, but my biggest suggestion is - learn to like light roast. The coffee community has done it's research for a long time now and they all say the same thing - Dark roast is objectively bad. Many people have been led to believe that dark roasts are actually stronger, or higher in caffeine than light roast. But the reality is that it's lower in caffeine and actually higher only in concentration of dissolved solids which taste acrid. To some past smokers, the leathery, tobacco, smokey taste of dark roast is reminiscent of that habit. But in specialty coffee, they never hold up to something as delicious as a light roast Ethiopian coffee. Get a good roaster and they can take a light Kenyan coffee and brew it and what you'll get is something full of flavors like molasses, orange zest, and dried fruit, with a super buttery mouth-feel.
Hm! I didn't know any of this at all, actually...
What about the distinctive 'coffee' flavour in itself? I genuinely like it (surprise surprise), is there any brand or type of brew where I could get more of that?
If you're interested in buying small batches of roasted beans, my advice is something like Sensory Labs. They do smallbatch coffee roasts and then mail it right out so when you get it it's pretty fresh. After all, coffee almost completely loses its flavor after 8 days. 10 if you're lucky.
As for the coffee flavor - coffee flavor is actually i very very complicated mixture of lots and lots of substances. It's nearly impossible to isolate all of the volatile, delicious flavors in coffee from all of the acidic or bitter flavors which make it taste bad. Espresso is the closest anybody has come to "purifying" it's flavor.
It's also nearly impossible to find two coffees that taste exactly the same. Like grapes in wine, or hops/barley in beer, green coffee has completely different characteristics depending on the environment in which it was grown. It is then even more differentiated by how the roaster roasts the coffee, and how the barista brews it. Every single level of preparation can completely change it.
Large chains of coffee like starbucks create "repeatable" flavor blends by sourcing many different coffees for the blend. Their goal is to use many coffees so that when one is out of season, they can replace it without any major difference in flavor.
You really should write a book about this sort of thing old top. There are many many many coffee drinkers around the world and they would love to hear this kind of stuff; I know I do.
David Schomer has the most famous book on the topic - Espresso preparation for professionals.
Barista Hustle is also a very very good source for information on it.
There's lots and lots of really cool and interesting information out there, but a great deal of the world has written us off as snobbish. Even I'm just a 19 year old kid learning to be a barista. But it's incredible what kind of science I've absorbed just from reading about the preparation of one tiny drink.

The difference is that Ben Carson quoted HISTORY, which can be easily manipulated and mostly has to be theoreticized the further you go back..and trump quoted with SCIENCE against what the entire scientific community agrees on.
The nerd girl from big bang theory was like 100 said misquoted, she also doesn't have a phd in physics, but in neurosiences.
The anti-vaccine thing was a misquote. She isn't against vaccination.

Well no one admits when they shit their pants when in such situations. think about all those stories about people in the past in history, how many of them probably shit their pants but lived to tell the tale except that little detail they chose to leave out?
