Ok, I am getting ready to move across the country, so I have been emptying my pantry.

Completely unintentionally I ran out of sugar on Sunday. I have since learned to appreciate straight black coffee by itself.
I have been slowly working on abandoning all forms of processed sugar since I stopped drinking soda about 10 years ago.

But back to the point, I was in Manhattan a few years ago, working at a hotel. There was a little deli/coffee shop across the street on the corner, I went in to get some coffee. What do I find?

30 pots of coffee, not one of them regular coffee flavored coffee!



I tell you what, we came very close to SHTF right there. But a helpful employee directed me to the cashier, where I could find regular coffee flavored coffee.

which brings me to the point of this thread. I have come to realize that I don't know one single person that drinks regular straight coffee. Everyone drinks some kind of genetic freak flavored half breed wannabe coffeeish type substance.

Where did the human race go wrong? I don't know about anyone else, but I find this very disturbing.

Worlds best coffee in a Jar - I kid you not (AUS $17.00 per 100mg jar)



Not cheap but definitely worth every cent !!!

ETA: I swear its better than ANY cafe' coffee you will ordinarily part money for. If I'm not drinking this stuff, I'm drinking beer........

My point exactly, it's like trying to capture the freaking Jackalope.

And I have just come to learn that the person I hold in the highest regard in all matters, buys a different flavor every week.

My world is in shambles, and I am lost.

I buy (dark roasted coffee beans) ...grind the fresh beans every morning and have my cup of coffee; nothing fancy but the flavor is oh so good; not too bitter. I purchase my beans from Trader Joe's.

I personally do not like all the fancy flavors and extra hidden calories.....blah!

I remember when there used to be a lot of cafe's...that had coffee counters...where you could sit and have a decent cup of coffee and chat with people...now everything is so separate.

I'm totally in! Coffee for coffee. No sugar. Learned to love coffee working on the ski lifts in Vail, CO years ago. Up there early in the morning clearing the ramps for the incoming skiers later in the morning. Now several cups in the morning. I have had a guy tell me they like their coffee like their women hot, sweet, and blonde. I must like my guys hot, dark, and strong.
Yummm

I was in Kuwait a few years ago, when a co-worker of mine recommended I try espresso.

I admit I was skeptical at first, just the name sounds weak. I discovered the glory of all glories. In my opinion espresso is just poor marketing.

I think it should be called super-ultra concentrated coffee!

What's really fun is going to a coffee shop and asking for a large espresso:

Me " One large espresso please"

them " huh?"

Me " get the largest cup you have, and fill it with espresso."

them: 'huh?

me: "Just do it."

Mmmm, super-ultra concentrated coffee!

So why is variety a bad thing?

I like variety.

Also, I am not a coffee drinker. I can't stand the stuff and truly don't understand why other people like it.

My ISP here in New Zealand is run by your average, coffee driven, IT guy (& a good mate, too).

Being an adventurous guy, it occurred to him that the best way to get GOOD coffee was to do it himself, so he roasts his own coffee beans, grinds 'em fresh & delivers.

Please UTU me if you want the web address 'cause I don't want to break the ATS rules by advertising.

Cheerz!

Blasphemer!!



Seriously though, you are now on my list of people to watch.

There is obviously something fundamentally wrong with you. I enjoy variety as well, but some things were just fine the way they were. If it's not broke, don't try to fix it.

Hmm.

If I am ever there, I will absolutely check it out.
But right now, I think my odds of finding myself in New Zealand are less than 0.

I used to drink dry roast drip in the morning with cream and sugar, but I have found that my throat likes cold in the morning better( I wake up with a dry throat often). After a considerable amount of time, I found what I drink now. I used to make my coffee the night before and chill it over night, but it seemed so thin and lifeless. Now I take a 12 oz bottle, add one coffee scoop size scoop of instant coffee, 2 scoops (same size) of chocolate milk mix, and fill with 2% or VitD Milk, then shake. Its cold, thicker, tastes good and my throat thanks me for it.

I love to brew single cups; But my coffee must be bold, meaning...it is a matter of taste. I prefer Sumatra.
It boils down to what your taste preference is . ..
What this is about is....10 years ago we could not get Sumatra Extra bold without paying a large price. Now \we can. We have more choice now. I generally drink Black silk.---Folgers/; Are you looking for Coffee? or for Coffee?
I brew it at home...Sumatra Bold ... There were never any flavors like what we have now and they are awesome if you take the time to try them. . And when I want to wake up I use the Black Silk.. coffee..
Even though I am getting old I love a good coffee. and ...what we have now will kick your head in the ditch if you want it too... Try the Keurig Kcups with its awesome brews...
What happened to coffee? It is still here and well...even much better in flavor.;
20 years ago you got basic ground brew beans from nowhere.. How do I know

I am 62 years old and bought those beans from nowhere for a very long time..I drank coffee to wake up then,, now I drink it for flavor and to enjoy
.

I'm a big coffee drinker, since about 11 years old (I'm 62 now). I too take it straight: Coffee-flavored, no cream, no sugar, no other additives.

About 2 or 3 times in my life I've accidentally grabbed someone else's coffee and taken a big gulp of sugar/cream/powdered substance/hazel-flavored crap--and spat it out right there. Makes me queasy just thinking about it....

Nothing beats a large cup of Turkish style coffee !

Grind your own beans by hand in a Turkish grinder so you get a fine powder.. into an Ibrik, plenty of sugar and enough cold water to fill the cup. slowly boil and just as it starts to foam, slowly pour it into the cup, trying to leave the mud behind


Thick as soup, sweet as heaven and black as hell..

That'll get you chirping in the morning!

Putting cream and sugar in a good cup of coffee is like drinking good scotch with Pepsi, it just ruins it. Most decent grocery stores have a selection of coffee ground and bagged in store, try a few of those.
