Coffee - no sugar - no milk - straight!

I used to get mine from Central America - straight from the grower...that was some good coffee...In Iraq, I served along side the Colombian Army - now that coffee was shipped from their families - whole bean in burlap bags - ground right there and pressed...now that was some great coffee!

To survive in this world - all one needs is a computer and a cup of coffee! Everything else will fall into place.

Coffee every single morning no matter what. Iced tea with lemon (and artificial sweetener or no sweetener) in the Summer.. Earl Grey in the Winter.

Tea.

I’ve never liked the taste of coffee.

Coffee. Black.

I’m on blood thinners, and can’t get a straight answer on whether & which tea could screw that up. So...tea, desirable and ritualistic as it is, is out.

So instead I’m a full-on coffee snob.

Ideal cup:
Roast green coffee beans in hot-air popcorn popper just until second crack is heard.
Cool beans.
Hand grind in ceramic burr grinder.
Heat water to 200 degrees.
Press water thru grounds in an AeroPress. (Kona vacuum brewer best but at $300 not happening.)
Wait a minute to cool.
Enjoy, robust & dark. No adulterating substances - this is coffee, not a milkshake.

I've started drinking more coffee when I'm out over the past dozen years or so (longer, actually, but definitely after grad school started).

Basically, free refills in diners for coffee, and tea is rarely hot enough when I'm out for my taste. Nothing worse than being served lukewarm tea. Also the water is cloudly because they don't flush out that little spigot as often as they should.

At home, it's mostly tea, although recently I've pulled the coffee pot (which we've had for "company" for 20 years) and have left it on the counter.

And McDonald's makes good coffee and a large cup is a buck. Nice.

Coffee in the morning. But only if I brew it. Sweet tea any other time.

Used to drink my coffee with two sugars and no cream. One pot in the morning and one pot in the afternoon. Have always hated the taste of milk, cream and most other dairy products. Moved to Florida eight years ago and got re-connected with sweet tea. Publix market makes the best.

Six years ago, started losing my taste for sweets. Gradually cut out using sugar in coffee and now just drink it black. One pot in the morning.

If we go out to eat or go to coffee hour after church, I just drink orange juice as other coffees, not fresh ground, taste horrible to me.

Give me my Columbian, or give me orange juice.

I do make an exception for my neighbor, a native of Jamaica, who brings me Blue Mountain coffee from her family's plantation in that country.

Still puzzled as to why I lost my sweet tooth for everything except sweet tea. Cakes, pies, waffles, pancakes, candy all taste awful now.

Restaurant tea service in the US is dreadful! So often just a cup of warm water with a tea bag on the side.

I have always loved the smell of coffee. It reminds me of getting up in the morning before we go out for chores. However, it never ever tasted to me how it smelled, so I never could drink it. So, I’m a tea guy. I especially like the tea made in Chinese food places.

Campbell’s Perfect Tea each morning. A lighter tea in the afternoon. Coffee mainly on weekends. Wine in the evenings.

Occasionally, you find that one diner that gives you a little teapot with enough water for a second cup. And usually it stays warm enough.

Problem is if I'm ordering a big breakfast (and if I'm in a diner, chances are that I am), I still need more to drink. Considering that a 20-ounce coffee is now "normal" for me, I need more than two cups.

I have agree with the comments that restaurant tea is awful. When out for breakfast, I order coffee.

I like my tea straight; I prefer coffee with a bit of sugar and no milk.

i've never liked coffee and tea is just .. meh. a cold bottle of water for me, thanks.

and strangely, i have no need for caffeine in order to 'wake up' in the mornings. i've often wondered if the morning ritual made caffeine a requirement.

Both......

Kona blend coffee mornings

Jasmine tea evenings

I bought a hundred bags of jasmine tea that was mostly green tea and barely jasmine. We have three bags left and then return to the good stuff.
