For many years people have told me that coffee "is an acquired taste" and that I "will get used to it." I've never found these reassuring and have frequently asked in response, "Why would I would to get used to a flavor I already know I don't like?" To this day, no one has been able to answer that question.
Now, why am I rambling on about coffee? A few moments ago I saw a picture taken during Pope Francis' pilgrimage to the Holy Land and the expression of the Holy Father's face led me to wonder if doesn't share my dislike of cofffee:

For the record, I have no idea whether or not Pope Francis likes coffee, but given that most of the world does, I suspect he does drink coffee. But probably only because he hasn't yet discovered Dr Pepper.
