How do you take your coffee?Breakfast
Sep 27, 2002 6:35 AM
I like mine black, hot, and strong, and never order the fancy drinks or Espresso.

How do you drink your caffeine and in what quanity, etc??

Dont like the dehydrating effects of caffeine, but im still habititated to coffee,; I limit myself to 1 cup of caffeinated, and unlimited decaf.

Espresswhat? Coffee wasnt meant to have cute names or fancy-drinkware.

Can tell its friday with the topics coming out.
Espresso is fancy?!?velocity

It's the simplest, purest, tastiest possible way to drink coffee.

I don't put anything into my coffee...Spoke Wrench

and I don't want anybody taking anything (like the caffine) out of it. I think that it's kind of like cookies. If God had intended for there to be 10,000 different kinds of cookies, He wouldn't have given us chocolate chips.

I'm constantly being surprised at how long it can take some people just to order their coffee. I went into Einsteins one Saturday morning just to buy a couple of bagels to take into the store for breakfast. That was a mistake that I'm not likely to ever make again!

with half and half. But a grad school classmate liked to put the non-dairy creamer (Coffeemate) in his coffee because he said the emulsifiers did a great job of keeping his cup clean.... ewwwwww

Was at starbucks once....Steve_0

I decided that I didnt need to return after I was reprimanded by a 16-year-old girl for asking for a 'small' coffee. I suppose I shouldve known the smallest coffee they sell is a 'large' (or tall, or whatever it was).

I'll spend $4K on a bike, but $3 for coffee, thats crazy. nmDave Hickey

Usually tea, coffee only after dinnerms

Coffee on a cold stomach makes me sick. I drink tea in the morning and throughout the day -- black with nothing in it. I prefer loose tea to teabags, but use teabags at the office. Preferred types -- Prince of Wales in the morning, Darjeeling in the afternoon, Hu Kwa (a smoky tea) on winter weekend afternoons, a good Jasmine in warm weather. I will have coffee, usually black, but with cream if it is very strong, after dinner at a restaurant or a dinner party.

I had a bad caffeine habit (primarily soda oriented) that affected my riding negatively. I don't drink coffee much anymore, and can't abide the weak acidic decaf most folks make.

I developed my coffee habit in Germany, meaning I like mine strong, rich, sweet and creamy (like Turkish coffee).

If I decide to indulge I have a couple small bags of the really high zoot stuff stashed away for a weekend. I maybe drink a cup once a month now.
Fresh, hot, REALLY strong, with some cream. 8-)OffTheBack

I confess: I'm from California, and I like soy cappuchinosMe Dot Org
Sep 27, 2002 8:03 AM long as someone else is foaming the soy. Yeah, it's healthful, but soy milk just tastes better.

When getting a refill on the road, I drink coffee black. At home, I use a Melita filter.
Strong and dark, just like my women!look271

(my wife is Cambodian-quite nicely toasted =) Anyway, if you can see through it, it ain't coffee. Expresso is nice, too, but you can skip adding the creme et al. I drink mostly the real stuff, but mix it with decaf if I anticipate drinking alot of it during the day (most workdays.) I tried doing the full non-caffeinated route, but even after I weaned myself from the caffeine, I felt like s%^T, so back to the real stuff and life is good, once again.
Bitter and murky, just like my women. nmfbg111

Is there any other way to drink it but strong and black?

A colleague (nearly) fills her mug with cream; then puts in about 3 tablespoons of coffee.

Gotta be Peet'sGator
Sep 27, 2002 9:47 AM
Lemme tell you, drink any of the Pacific island varieties of Peet's and you'll NEVER go back. It rocks. I like Sumatra w/ a bit of half-and-half. It's super caffinated, so one cup is more than enough.

Had a friend who loved the Costco Starbuck's beans (excellent value) with non-fat condensed milk. It's a great idea--rich, sweet and low-fat, BUT, if you are the slightest bit lactose intolerant, look out. After a mug of that concoction, I almost turned myself inside out one morning. Ugly scene.

home roasted, ground and brewed into an insulated carafe. We buy green beans from Sweet Maria, a business in Ohio, and roast them ourselves in our small batch roaster. We grind with a good burr grinder (the only way to go) and brew with a good drip system into an insulated carafe, no hot plates! From there into a warmed thermos and off to work. One quart a day keeps the doctor away!
