Are you a coffee lover?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
What's your favorite? Do you keep more than one kind on hand? I usually keep 2 or 3 but seem to have gone out of control. Just brought home 3 more bags and here's what I have:

Volcanic Red (recently found this brand at Sprouts WFS): Holiday Blend, Pumpkin Spice, & Organic Rainforest Reserve (shade grown-curious to know how that makes a difference)

Starbucks: Arabian Mocha Sanani & Italian Roast

Ross (yeah, they have coffee): Hawaiian Gold Kona & French Roast and Jamaica Blue Mountain Blend

Supermarket: Organic Peruvian Forest

I love coffee

I'm not a big coffee drinker - but I do love Frappuccino's - my favorite is Starbucks - Double Chocolate Chip Frap. YUM!!

Yes, I love all kinds of coffee too, but I cannot just pour a cup and set the cup down or my beloved cat will be right there trying to sneak a drink or at least totally check out the smell, so I have to use one of those slotted top cups like you get at Starbucks. But to answer your question, I prefer unflavored coffee with REAL CREAM and no sugar.

Funny you say that, I just got back from Starbucks with my friend. I had a Christmas special, Eggnog Latte. It was good. I also looove their Java Chip Frappucino. Mmm. I also had their espresso brownie. Yummy, but probably has about 10000 calories in it. I most likely ate my daily calorie intake there. So, yeah, my answer is yes, I LOVE COFFEE.

I love coffee...I have a Flavia Fusion machine and can make all sorts of coffee drinks with it...and tea, but I prefer the coffee. My all time favorite coffee is Dunkin Donuts, but unfortunately we don't have that here but we have Starbuck's and I love the nonfat Vanilla Latte!!!!

I just went to pick up Caribou Coffee's Reindeer Blend. LOVE IT!!

Personally I'm lean more toward Caribou than Starbucks. For some reason Starbucks coffee leaves my stomach upset. Although I did have their christmas blend and it was GOOD!

I love coffee. I get Lattes at Starbucks and I used to have Gevalia delivered each month. I got two boxes of French Roast and two boxes of Breakfast Blend each month.

I drink a whole pot, every morning - NO flavors, just as dark and strong as possible. I like my coffee, the same way I like my men - HOT and SWEET!

I drink coffee once in awhile. Mostly if I'm really cold or I'm super tired. I do keep coffee in the house for guests. If I drink it it must be flavored and loaded with sugar. Otherwise I can't stand it. I do love French Vanilla cappuccino's though.. yummy..

I don't like coffee. I'm a tea person.

I do like coffee, but we never make it at home. If I have it, it's at work or I pick one up from Wawa.

I'm not a very big coffee drinker. Once and a while I'll have it. I can only stand drinking it if I coat it with sugar. I like cappachino though. yum.

I don't like coffee but my family makes many, many pots of it every day. We've been through about six coffee makers in a few years, no joke.

Oh you bet we are! One of my presents when we were dating was a 4 pack of coffee beans from Starbucks and French Press

We love Jamaica Blue when we can afford it, currently adore Rocket Java which we get at Winco of all places, and in the house at the moment we have a Millstone Brand Kona, Trader Joe's Holiday Blend, and Trader Joe's Double Dark, Cascade Java's Uptown Blend, and a bag of something I got but didn't label

We like our coffee strong with good flavor...hence the bag of kona still sitting here, along with the Uptown Blend..both are too mild.

Oh..also for a medium strength like Columbian Peaberry.

I don't like coffee. I like hot chocolate and I love Irish Creme cappichinos.
post #18 of 29
Yes, I love coffee. I like my coffee on the strong side, with a little cream and no sugar. Dunkin Donuts is my favorite, along with Panera's and Starbucks and at home it's just Folgers. I just recently had the pumpkin spice creamer, and boy was that good! I occasionally have lattes too, which are very good, but I prefer regular coffee.

I like my coffee strong, no flavors, with cream and splenda.

I love coffee too - but just plain old Columbian. I don't care at all for the flavoured coffees. Don't hate me but I really don't like Starbucks nor do I like Tim Horton's.

I love coffee. Starbucks is my favorite. Although give me a cup of McDonalds on the way to work and I'm singing a happy tune! I think honestly that McDonalds has the best coffee, but at home, we drink, starbucks, Marques de Paiva(from Sams) or Millstone. We get it whole bean and honey will grind it for us. (I'm grinder stupid. It won't work for me ) I love it with 2 sweet and lows and some flavored creamer. Honey likes it strong so it works for both of us. He gets it his way and I can't taste the bitterness of when he makes it that way.

Well, do not worry. I just read in the Wall Street Journal that Dunkin Donuts is going to war with Starbucks on who can make the most and sell the most coffee! Right now, when I think of coffee, I never think about going to Dunkin but they say that is all going to change and that Starbucks is in danger of losing it's number one position.

I do not like flavored coffees.
I do like a good cup of medium roasted black coffee or a well made laté.
I am very anti-Starbucks ( I remember back when they were a mom & pop store in Pike Place Market, I loved their coffees and teas then).

As a former barrista, I am very picky about my coffees.

I probably drink about 3 cups in the morning at work, Maxwell house with cream and just a little bit of sugar. I don't have a coffee maker at home so I only drink it at work or if I go to Starbucks or the gas station I get lattes at Starbucks, my fave is a caramel latte and I get the cappuccinos from the machine at the gas station, I like English toffee the best

I was a Starbucks barista as well. When I took their 'Communicating Coffee' class, it dawned on me what they were doing. They said, "we roast our beans longer, to get a darker roast and fuller flavor". Then they showed pics of their roasted beans next to your average Folgers. Sure enough, Starbucks beans were MUCH darker... Well DUH! Thats the result when you BURN SOMETHING!!!

I LOVE coffee (thanks Starbucks ) I started out drinking all the 'designer' coffees with extra toppings, but I'm lactose intolerant, so I was a bit limited. I hate soy, though I can sometimes get away with skim milk. But I just don't like the way milk tastes. I prefer the darker, earthier (dry) beans from the middle east and north africa (i.e. sumatra, ethipian), but my all time favorite was the 10 lbs. we brought back from Jamaica a year ago! Mmmm....

If I go to Starbucks (I'm not 'anti', just not a fan) the only thing I'll drink is an Americano. I hate the way they label their sizes too, but just in case anyone ever wanted to know:

Short = 8oz. cup (rarely if ever advertized )
Tall = 12oz. cup (named that way per the previous size)
Grande = 16oz cup (means large in many languages)
Venti = 20oz cup (means 20 in italian, i.e. 20oz)

Also, don't know if they changed this, but when I worked for Starbucks (in the Sears Tower, downtown Chicago) if someone asked for 2%, we just mixed skim with whole milk. (thats cheating!!!)

Love their teas though

I enjoy one well made cup of coffe every morning. I measure out the water and the freshly grond beans. Add a bit of 1/2 and 1/2 and thats it. No flavroed stuff for me. My best is Sumatra or a blend with Sumatra in it. Even though there is a Costa Rican bean I like too (La Minita). Locally Alterra roasters in Milwaukee WI and Door County Coffee -I think Sturgeon Bay, WI have good beans. I like a darker roast coffee.
On the Dr Phil show last week he called all the fancy flavored pricey coffee drinks "Hot milkshakes" Gives one an idea of the amount of calories!!

310 calories in a Grande Caramel Machiato...

About the same as a Burgerking Bacon Cheeseburger or Whopper Jr. w/ cheese (but without mayo )
