    Default Coffee, Anyone...?

    Well, my job now has Starbucks Coffee in the cafeteria. Since all I have to do is head to the lower level to grab a cup, I can't stop drinking this stuff. So far, I tried a bunch of their coffees and the ethiopian sidamo is my favorite.....

    " I am cornholio......are you threatening me???"

    Hehe :D

    As I type this I am enjoying a mild with a shot in the dark (shot of expresso).

    We drink the stuff everyday. We bought their coffee maker and buy their coffee 1/2lb per week. I generaly drink 1 cup a day, but on the odd day I may buy one at work.

    Within 5 mins walking there are 4 Starbucks 1 of them in the Atrium of the building I work at.

    I find coffe is like wine they each have their taste. AMJ was our fav till discontinued. Now we drink Komodo dragon.

    They use quality beans and brew the coffee at the right temperature.

    Coffee is not just grinding beans and pouring hot water on them.

    I know a few people that take coffee straight. They swear that once you get used to just coffee w/out any thing else, you will never drink it any other way..

    That Chantico is some good (and powerful) stuff. I've had it a few times and have yet to finish that small cup.

    I know a few people that take coffee straight. They swear that once you get used to just coffee w/out any thing else, you will never drink it any other way..
    I never drink it any other way. Good coffee does not require flavorings, milk...etc. I do enjoy iced-coffee but again, just black. The only fu-fu coffee I enjoy is Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte which is only available in the fall.

    I can do one small cup in my sleep, have done two, but sits in the gut like lead. I can neither confirm or deny the fact that I am a complete Chocoholic! :p

    I love coffee, have 2 grinders... one of the nice Kitchenaids that has the glass hopper for the beans storage... I need more now, but usually i fresh grind my coffee daily. when im out i like dunkin donuts regular with french vanilla however it sometimes is to sweet depending on who's working. at home just sugar and whole milk, not cream, not french vanilla.. ect. Id like to try coffee black but im so damm used to the sweetness of milk and sugar it tastes bland, even with good beans..

    Why ruin a good thing??? Black all the way and the stronger the better. I grind my own beans at home also and have a hard time enjoying any preground anything.

    I also will drink coffee all day.
