Are you, or have you ever been an Islington latte-supping elite member?

I have been to Islington. I have had a latte. But not at the same time.

I have had a latte in Islington. It was very well made and resonably priced. I was quite relieved to find somewhere that had baked goods containing both sugar and gluten, to be honest - seems to be a thing round there.

I am not an elite member, as I had a ZX Spectrum, not a BBC.

I tried a latte once but not in Islington.

Did you say "thanks a latte" when they handed it to you?

I have drunk many cups of coffee in Islington and will again, but I can't stand latte.

Surely one sips a latte, in Islington.

Supping suggests a less refined action:

"Put on the pan, says Greedy Nan, let's sup before we go."

FLAT WHITES MATTER

Supping would suggest a pint of mild, somewhere north of Birmingham.

I live in Islington and had a latte about half an hour ago. I made it myself. I also frequently buy them near where I live. Am I elite?

A true elitist would definitely have their coffee with a plant based milk.

Crayola - 26 May 2021 09:43:38 (#14 of 89)

I had semi skimmed cow milk. HTH.

crackfox - 26 May 2021 09:43:47 (#15 of 89)

Cis milk

Arjuna - 26 May 2021 09:46:02 (#16 of 89)

Goats milk would still be acceptable, I only drink yak's milk

Only when Labour are in power.

I have been in Islington a couple of times and I believe I may well have had a latte - or possibly a cappa - there.

I don't think I fit the Islington elite in any other way by any stretch of the imagination, though.

bossab2 - 26 May 2021 09:50:21 (#19 of 89)

Bits if Islington are quite rough arent they ?

Crayola - 26 May 2021 09:52:52 (#20 of 89)

Yep. A couple of the UK's poorest wards are here. Where I used to be a school governor the area had the highest refugee population of anywhere in the UK as well, IIRC.
