I have been visiting Middletown from Australia for nearly 40 years and I am always amazed at how Australians and Americans are so different when it comes to coffee. I admire many things about America but sadly coffee never makes the list.
Since the 1970s, I have noticed two things about coffee in Connecticut. Locals like it fast and they like a lot. Anytime anywhere in Middlesex County, there will be a coffee pot brewing on a kitchen counter, in a diner or any place where workers gather.
Coffee is poured hot, strong and by the gallon.
