I hate coffee
I also am not a coffee drinker. I always thought that made me weird but after reading this thread, I realize a lot more people don't or ( and in my case) never did drink it.
I was however a caffeine addict. What fix I didn't get from coffee, I got from a big bottle of icy coke in the morning. And all day long.
I've given up caffeinated products now, going on 2 weeks. I just felt like I could do without the caffeine stimulation and have started drinking Walmart flavored water, which has done wonders for my disposition and weight too.

I don't like coffee.
I got me a French Press yesterday and I LOVE it! Only drawback is that I can't just run in the kitchen and refill my cup over and over...... I wonder if they make a gallon sized carafe... Ha Ha Ha
Never drank a drop of coffee until I joined the service. When I was on deployments it wasn't unusual to suck down 10-15 cups a day to stay awake. I'll drink anything that has the word 'coffee' on it. Some of that military surplus coffee can be doubled for engine oil, which went down the tube pretty thick and was usually followed by a wince until your mouth was rid of any tastebuds. Now at my current unit, I keep it to 2 cups in the morning, as it has gone from a necessity to stay awake to just a social aspect.
I dislike flavored creamers/ flavored coffee and any other foo-foo style add ons. Just a cup-o-joe for me please.

Nothing better than grinding fresh coffee beans and a French Press to go along with it. I love it too!Originally Posted by echo1960
Same here. I don't like dessert coffees like hazelnut or what have you either. I do need something to take the acidic edge off, but nothing sweet.Originally Posted by speedbump
Having said that, I do like that sugar-free vanilla syrup Starbuck's has. But that's not a coffee drink, it's more like hot chocolate.

I love coffee! All coffee. No snobbery here. I love the smell of the coffee/tea aisle in the grocery store. I take it with one sugar and one milk. (Regular.) I would bathe in coffee, and sleep with it if I could. At one point I was up to 2 pots a day, and had developed a caffeine addiction. (Y'don't say!) So I've had to cut down to 2 cups a day. Best part of the day in my opinion.

I coffee. I'm not terribly picky about it -- I don't require some special bean or whatever -- but I do prefer brewed to instant, and if given the option I'll always get a flavor rather than just plain coffee. Right now I'm on hazelnut. Yum. Before that it was Irish Cream. The past couple of months at work we've been making two or three pots a day between three or four of us, and there have been days when coffee was pretty much my only sustenance. I must wean myself.
But I rarely *make* coffee; I usually buy it (in part because my coffee pot is now here at the office). My morning ritual is a cup from the 7-11 on my way to work. Two hazelnut creamers and two Splenda packets. Heaven.

I like coffee. I take it black, no sugar. I'm not very picky about the type just as long as it's not weak. There's nothing worse than a weak cup of coffee. After years of using a drip maker, about six months ago we bought an electric perculator for home. It makes good coffee and keeps it nice and hot.
