Cardamom and Clove by Willa Okati

Russ has a theory, you can understand how a man will be in bed from how he drinks his coffee: Black coffee men, in bed, they wanted it hot and hard and fast; Coffee with cream, whatever you want, man, that’s fine, but don’t expect me to call you in the morning; Sweetened coffee, cuddlers, handholders, enthusiastic and yielding and no challenge at all.

For this reason Russ is in a gay friendly coffee house and he is perusing the offer; nothing of the above is right for him in this moment, he wants something different, and there is Calen, with his Cardamon and Clove flavoured coffee… that Russ is not able to classify and he wants to find out.

Calen will be a surprise for many reasons: younger than Russ, he has in any case a dominant core like a Black coffee man that will entice Russ; on the other hand Calen is willing to switch like a Coffee with cream man but in the aftermath he will be as cuddling as a Sweetened coffee man. In few words, Calen summarized all the qualities Russ likes in men in one nice package.

Fast, nice and naughty short story, right for a coffee break.
