Why I usually drink my coffee black

I usually drink my coffee black with no sugar, but today decided to put a little milk in it for some odd reason.

On my second cup I filled almost the entire cup with milk, topped it off with coffee, then wondered why my coffee was already cold when I got back to my desk.

DOH !

I only use cream in my coffee, but back when I used to use sugar, I once poured salt into my coffee. :iconpukel:

The coffees i drink here are either Douwe Egberts (named something else in Oz, i forget what) or Cart Noir (thanks to another member on Ozzu).

There was a place i used to drive past when i was working in Australia which sold the nicest lattes ever. It was just a small local store, but the coffee used was amazing. I asked the owner of the place one morning what the coffee was and he went on to say what it was and that he had some on sale within his store. The stuff was called Zenith. Nice coffee.

I drink a lot of hot tea, I usually have one with breakfast and another in the evening. I get my tea from a place in Colorado called the Tea Table over the internet.

Oh, I disagree entirely. I don't mind their espresso drinks, but they regular coffee is sub-par at best compared to many of the other places around here to get coffee. They also tend to be ridiculously overpriced.

Indeed - I have been a Starbucks patron ever since starting at my current job (the Starbucks is only 5 mins away - yes, in the UK, your nearest Starbucks can sometimes be more than 5 minutes away from your current location [I think it's the law in the US that a Starbucks must be within 5 minutes walking distance at all times]). I always go for the triple shot wet latte, however I recently tried their brewed coffee and it stank. Never again.

Having said that, I do prefer UK Starbucks to those in the US. I think it's the milk. Milk in the US is strange.

On a recent trip to Niagara Falls, Canada, there literally was a Starbucks within 5 minutes walking distance of any other Starbucks, often less.

Even in my hometown, you can walk out the doors of a Starbucks and there's another Starbucks in sight. It's kind of sickening, really.

I was cleaning out my car the other day, and there was a glob of thick, black grease on the floor under my driver's side seat. Although it was most likely grease from the seat hinges or something similar, there's a good chance it may have been McDonald's coffee.

The problem with their coffee is that it sits on the burner all day (and thus is burnt by the time I ever get it), and they keep it way too hot -- unnecessarily hot -- so that I have to wait 10 or 15 minutes to drink it.

McOffee? It's horrible - well, it has gotten better since they introduced the "fresh" ground stuff, but its still not too hot. Luckily, I'll be picking up my Gaggia espresso maker sometime in the next few days (thank you wedding list :) )

I like creamy beverages at Costa (mocha flake etc) but I'd hardly call that coffee. Serbia is big on coffee, but most people have it traditional turkish style, boiling honest-to-god roasted ground coffee beans in water. Very retro, I know. I don't really like the taste of coffee though (love the smell - nothing beats the aroma of freshly ground coffee!!! mmmm warm and spicy.....) and it's the only ice cream flavor I dislike. I can drink it mixed with milk, chocolate, cinnamon, cream and other de-coffee-fying ingredients............

I love milk tea, british style. especially earl gray. mmmm bergamoty..... :D

For some reason I want a coffee from America, I have been told it's very strong and very tasty. :P

Where can I buy US coffee lol?

I don't think strong or tasty have anything to do with "American" coffee. It just depends on how it's made. Most coffee beans aren't grown in the U.S., so there really isn't a whole lot of "US coffee", unless you're just referring to coffee that's brewed here, but that's largely a per-basis kind of thing, not really cultural.

Now, I have a friend who makes coffee so strong that it's like drinking black sludge. But that's just because he's crazy. ;)

Can you get Maxwell House? Any blend is a good blend. And they are now using 100% Arabaca beans in all their blends.

Yep, we get Columbian coffee here in the UK. That reminds me of something a TSA officer asked us at the airport in LA last week - he was checking our passports and noticed that we were from the UK. He started going on about how he loved Torchwood and the BBC, and then he said "Is that the only TV channel you get in the UK?" I felt like asking him what a TV was :lol:

hahaha reminds me of some hotshot US soldier that came down to Bosnia in one of the international missions. the guy walks into a pub and starts a conversation with some of the local girls, saying 'yeah, I know all about yugoslavia, I saw this video, 'death of yugoslavia'... you girls know what a 'vi-de-o' is?'

to which the girl closest to him gave him a confused look and said 'No..... here we have 'D-V-D'.....'

I wonder if he felt sufficiently embarrassed......

Coffee is the nectar of the Gods! I love the stuff. Except when I inadvertantly pick up my wife's mug and take a big swig of the syrupy crap she drinks.

Black, no sugar, please! :drink:

I can't imagine if there's no coffee around. I recently bought 2 packets of coffee beans that is steeped from the supermarket. And I made it with 2 teaspoons, a packet of creamer, and 85% boiling water. It's amazing, it really helps me to do whatever I want. For example, if I'm feeling tired, and restless, it actually lets me sleep. If I'm feeling busy, and needs to get things done, it gives me the alertness I need. Unlike some coffee, I drank it, I'll feel too strong, and can't help. I can write a page of article about coffee, really cuz I love it.

I used to visit starbucks often, not now anymore. It I guess I'm losing its taste somehow. McD coffee is quite ok for me. It isn't too bad, and too good. Nescafe?, o.k this is my dad's favorite-all time. Not mine.

As far as Starbucks goes, I refuse to drink from a place where I have to learn a new language just to order something. Plus I like just coffee and as far as I know you can't just get a cup of coffee there.

I prefer the black coffee as well without any milk or cream actually.

If you think 1 starbucks within 5 minutes walking distance is bad, you should check out the Northwest. It's overrun with Starbucks' here. There are numerous spots I could mention that have multiple (not just 2) starbucks stores within minutes of eachother. I know of one location in Hillsboro, OR where there are 2 starbucks directly across the street from one another.

Right now I'm working in Boston temporarily and the company I am working for has one of these and I think it's pretty much the greatest thing ever. I had never seen one before but it comes with all of these little cups of different flavors (that are free here of course) and it's pretty much just a 1 touch system.

I've gone through a couple everyday the last 2 weeks nearly.

What is the point in having so many starbucks so close together? I would have thought it would have been better to spread them out over a larger scale.

Try visiting Seattle. So many Starbucks it is not even funny. If you can't find one in Seattle you must be blind and have no sense of smell.

I've been switching between coffee, iced tea, water, and soda throughout the day lately.

I open the fridge to refill my coffee cup at least once a day now.
