Blue Cheese In Your Coffee, Sir?

Wednesday, February 10, 2010 17:15 GMT

TORONTO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some people take their coffee with cream, others take it with whatever weird stuff they find in the fridge.

Morning coffee has become an experiment in flavors for Mike Battista, who runs

Instead of taking his cup of joe the old-fashioned way, Battista tries adding random things in his brew to see how it goes down.

Things like curry, peanut butter, and Whoppers chocolate balls have proven to be successful additions.

However, some of his ideas have failed terribly.

Like the time he tried putting blue cheese in his coffee, which admittedly made him gag.

Ground up bananas also proved to be a mouthful of failure.

Battista says, “I started putting things in my coffee out of boredom and because I’m an adventurous person. I drink coffee every day, and cream and sugar gets boring.”

His daily experiments are often disgusting, but make his day “more exciting.”
