Do you enjoy drinking coffee?

Do you enjoy drinking coffee?

Hot or cold?

What kind?  Are you one that tells a barista some very long order that describes the type of coffee, temperature, flavor shots, and so on?  I often make my own coffee after grinding a blend of coffee beans.

Do you drink your coffee black or with cream?

Do you use sugars or sweeteners, and if you do is sweeteners, artificial or something like Stevia?

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I wondered what Americano coffee is.  I might look up its typical blend of beans.

@ChrissyRyan
Dear Chrissy:
         An Americano is an alternative to brewed coffee, it is made as an espresso with hot water added to make it less strong...   
When I order an Americano I ask for "room for cream" which allows me to add cream and sugar...
... just exactly the way I like it.

My Barista #5 at the next door coffee shop knows that is how I like it so when she brings me coffee or when others get coffee there to bring to me she makes sure I get what I like.   
That is a big advantage to living in a very small town and frequenting my next door coffee shop on an almost daily basis.
HUGS,
Danielle

As most of my friends here on the forums are aware, I drink a lot of coffee. 
I am usually out of bed at 5:00AM or so and have a couple cups of coffee at home as I get a shower, get dressed and get ready for work....
... then I get to the coffee shop next door to my office around 7:00AM and have several cups of coffee or espressos and visit with my acquaintances and friends there.... then next door I go to open my office and for sure a friend or acquaintance will bring me coffee, or if not, I will always have pot of coffee going for my clients and myself during the day.   

I know that I probably drink too much coffee and I try to drink more DeCaf particularly in the afternoon.
I like my coffee light and sweet, I usually sweeten it with Splenda or one of the other "fake" sugar alternatives.... that makes my toothfairy Dental Hygienist sweetie happy with me.... and I want her to be happy!!!

Danielle

I cold brew coffee all summer. There's always a pitcher of cold brew in my refrigerator during the summer.In the summer, I have an iced coffee most days of the week.

Hot coffee in the winter. I grind the beans manually and then use the pour over method using a Kalita coffee dripper. I drink less coffee in the winter than the summer. Maybe only a couple times a week.

I prefer medium-roasted beans. I avoid things like any sort of French Roast or a Peet's Dickason's Blend.

I don't drink coffee in the mornings...I use it mainly as a pick me up in the afternoon.

I always take my coffee with milk.

Occasionally I'll treat myself to a latte at a coffee shop.

You tell me....LOL

I like a 'flat white' its the most popular type of espresso in NZ, like a cappuccino but without the froth on top just the crema - but fine frothed milk mixed in. At my favourite coffee shop I order their 'Elegance' blend - it is a rich choc-lately tasting coffee - its to die for.

I'm definitely in the same camp as Sonja. I love the stuff.

I don't have a particular way of having it, sometimes I do cream, sometimes not. Usually I have saccharin in it instead of sugar but sometimes I do brown sugar, raw sugar, honey, and even molasses on occasion.

Lately I've been roasting my own since I bought a roaster to prepare research samples. I got some beans from Burundi that are just incredible. They get fermented in the pulp for a day or two and then washed, this gives them a bit of a fruity flavor that I've never found in coffee before. That's definitely a coffee that needs nothing added, but it's still really great if you throw cream and sugar in.

OK - Colleen - You might be my one and only person to explain to me this.

The coffee beans that get 'pooped out' and then called the best in the world.....
Can you explain anything to me about Why? What? When? How? I almost can't bare thinking about it and yet I love coffee so much I think - should I.....

Civet coffee?

Honestly I've never had the opportunity to try it. They wash the beans well and brewing will kill anything nasty living in it so there's no real threat of infection or whatnot.

Anyway it's different because the civet cat's digestive tract causes some chemical changes in the beans, which are really just seeds. They absorb some of the flavor chemicals which makes the beans taste different than before they get uhh, "processed"

Oh Yeah!  I used to be able to drink it all day and evening but now I'm down to just breakfast time.  I like a medium roast with a hint of sugar with creamer to lighten it a bit.

Yes that's the one - Thanks, I just looked it up but the wiki article points out its sold more on the story of its origins than the taste - which some labelled BAD.
 OH well....thank god I don't have to go there....

I drink one cup of rather strong coffee in the morning.  One cup a day is all I drink.

I don't drink coffee at all. I like the smell, but can't actually drink it. (I don't like the taste of tea either for that matter.)

Actually... I'm just not fond of hot drinks in general. But even the iced versions of tea/coffee I avoid because I dislike the taste.
