This email seemingly also was not sent where it should be sent to. So I send

Where I first smelled coffee - at home, of course. My parents usually both
drink a cup of coffee in the morning and one or two in the afternoon, as
long as I can remember. They always use coffee powder, not beans - so
nothing special. I tasted coffee some years ago and retasted it from time to
time, but I still do not like it. Nevertheless, I like black tea (don't know
what type etc.) with some milk and some sugar, of course not too bitter, so
I only let the teabag swim in the cup for about a minute or so. Adults often
say about coffee when I tell them I dislike its taste - don't know how to
translate ... but it's something like "you'll learn to [like its taste] when
you're older" if you think closer about it.

Yes, me too.

;) How nice of you to want to prove that I'm not too small... I meant "tall
classmates", yes. Most are between 1.75m and 1.80m I'd guess after paying
more attention to that today.
