A/N: Double drabble.

The five new recruits took their seats around the boardroom table with the senior members of the Torchwood team, feeling excited and a little nervous on their first day. They’d already met the Captain and his PA, Ianto Jones, during the interview process, and they’d been introduced to the rest of the team on their arrival; only ten people so hopefully they’d be able to remember everybody’s name.

This meeting would get them up to speed with what everyone was working on, and then Captain Harkness would assign them duties. Each of them would be shadowing one of the existing team members while they learned the ropes, and all of them were eager to learn who they’d be working with, but first…

Ianto came in carrying a laden tray and began distributing mugs of coffee to everyone. Following the example set by the rest of the team, the newcomers thanked Ianto and picked up their mugs; the first coffee of the day seemed to be a kind of ritual judging by the way everyone took a deep sniff before sipping carefully.

Five voices groaned in ecstasy and the Captain smirked. “Once you’ve tasted Ianto’s coffee you’ll ever drink instant again.”

The End


Of course, Ianto's coffee is just a legend!
Or a well kept secret, given out only to the team ;)

Thank you!
One taste and they're hooked. Working for Torchwood deserves some perks and since both Jack and Ianto are off limits, coffee is the best they'll get
It's one hell of a perk though, as the recruits are learning.

Thank you!
