    Default ..in abomination = ..tastes vile

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    This coffee is in abomination.
    This coffee tastes vile.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Yes, but it's "an abomination."

    Hi conungursvia,

    Thank you for your affirmative reply as well as for your proper amendment.
    I was misled by the the phrase “to hold something in abomination”.

    Thank you again for your backing.

    Regards,
