On a rare occasion I'll drink coffee. Otherwise, no. Espresso.

I have been drinking coffee today for not-falling-asleep-at-work purposes. I had it with an orange. …that wasn't a very good idea.

as an offshoot, what do you have with your coffee? I prefer fluffy breaded products, perhaps custard donuts.
Personally, I like to have mine on its own. My dad dunks his biscuits in his tea, but me, I prefer to have a hot drink on its own

I drink my coffee black, and I usually have it with a healthy dose of Drunk Duck webcomics in the morning.

No joke.

I usually follow that up with a little CBR and then check my email, and I'm good to go for the day.

Seventy is also wrong, since real is impossible to come across anywhere outside working class Britain.

You can tell it's real tea when it feels like you're drinking tar.



The same simile applies to real coffee, though it should be a bit more acidic (like sulphuric acid.) It helps to not clean out the coffee maker for months and to let the grounds congeal in the bottom.

Of course this is not necessary with Kona, Turkish or true Brazilian coffee.

I've been told that instant coffee is “gross”. I don't know about that, but I don't like percolator made coffee because there's that taste that I don't like…

I have a huge bag of instant Nescafe that I got when I worked in Nestle Beverages. Can't stand the stuff. If you have an aftertaste with perculator coffee, time to clean the pot thoroughly though I love that taste myself. That and the scent of diesel exhaust on a misty morning… ah yes, the taste and smell of the Combat Arm of Decision.

I'm surprised at how many people here drink it black. Everyone I know puts all manner of sugars and creams and flavor shots into their coffees.

We black coffee drinkers know that putting anything in coffee ruins it.

In that way, it's a lot like people!
I am so happy to finally be back home

I'm on the road five days a week, and need a morning pick me up, but like a few others have stated, regular straight coffee gives me a stomach ache. So I cut it with half cocoa, half coffee. I may add some creamer if they have mocha or hazelnut. The places I go to have the real stuff in a chilled dispenser, not the little single creamer packets. The sweetener already in the cocoa is enough in this combo. When I have coffee on it's own, I tend to use sweetener… Splenda if I can find it.

As for tea, I like it hot or cold, sun brewed, microwaved, pot boiled, spiced, whatever. but it has to be sweetened and there can be no cream or milk of any kind.

“Real” in reference to a milk/cream substitute thingo for coffee seems bizarre. lol!

Like those genuine artificial leather shoes I've heard about… :)

————-

I had a whole heap of coffee the other day and it gave me a stomach ache. :(
I haven't had any since…

————-

I tried out those packets of flavoured coffee for a while, all different brands. The Nescafe cappuccino one is the best! But the last brand I tried tasted like hot sweet soggy wheatbix, it was disgusting. I finally read the ingredients and found it had virtually NO coffee at all in it and absolutely zero milk! The milk content was all replaced by some disgusting vegetable or wheat based “creamer” shit and to top it off it also contained some bizarre mix of artificial sweeteners that were nasty…

Yeah, it tasted less like coffee and more as if you let your milky breakfast go soggy, then pile on a few desert spoonfuls of sugar and whack it in the microwave for a minute and a half. Stir and serve. >_<

I put a little bit of creamer into my plain old Folger's coffe with a piece of fruit. Currently I'm using Hazelnut flavor “organic” creamer (fancy dancy sale creamer). >_>;;

I take my coffee with just a splash of coffee in it, you know, so it tastes like coffee (my damned testicles won't let me put cream and sugar in there). I usually have with some tobacco, smokeless if I'm at the workplace already.

On the subject of tea:
Sweet tea- Da Bomb
Sweat tea- Disgusting
Sun tea- Delicious, but only for the patient
British tea- Only good at 4 pm, otherwise very pretentious
Herbal tea- Berries and twigs
Russian tea concentrate sitting on the samovar when you're out of water- Just right
Handshakes and mustaches are the only ways to know how much you can truly trust a man.

The dispenser says it's real cream. Not that advertising has never lied, but it does have the consistency of cream… Perhaps some of the flavorings are imitation though.

It's Meijer brand and tastes like any other creamer.

I meant the specialty flavored creamers. I guess I'm too used to the “normal” creamers. Others I've tried are the Irish Cream and French Vanilla.

Ah ha, I see. I thought you meant “organics” was weird. ^^;;

And yeah, I agree that some of those flavored creamers are disgusting. But I have a sweet tooth and the Hazelnut flavor doesn't bother me much.
