Coffee Anyone?

I drink coffee from time to time--like at this moment.  However, I'm more likely to drink hot tea.

For about 20+ years, I drank a lot of coffee.  Then  I switched to tea as part of a plan to become healthier.

Since then, the "experts" have reported that coffee also contains those important antioxidants that tend to be found in so many teas.

I could stop drinking coffee and not really miss it, but I would miss not drinking tea.

I prefer my "coffee" to be carbonated so the caffeine goes into my system faster. That's why I drink a slug of Coke 1st thing in the morning!! It's a health food, right??    :wink:

Coffee for me please

There are those coffee drinkers that say I really don't like the taste of coffee because I put sugar and cream in mine. Well I guess they are entitled to their opinion, but black coffee tastes to me like what I imagine drinking liquid chalk would taste like. In camp or on the trail I drink instant. At home I drink Eight O'Clock Colombian Whole Bean which I sort of over grind into a fine powder for filtered drip brewing. I started coffee drinking when I was a kid (I had to get up at 4am for a before school paper route) and I wonder if that is why I like it sweetened and creamed.
The latest studies I've heard about claim that there is a carcinogen in brewed coffee that paper filters remove. Those of you that regularly drink percolated or French press brews might want to pour it through a filter to fill your cup. Coffee studies seem to go back and forth so I expect them to tell us soon that filters also remove all the good stuff from coffee as well. Instant or brewed, my coffee does seem to taste better from my Virtual Big Bend cups, but that might just be the view affecting my taste buds.

i might be just as tempted to drink my own urine for breakfast.  the smell is not as bad as that of coffee, with only problem being that it is not quite as hot.

Yep, coffee, usually in morning and at night, can go sleep after having cup. 8)

BAD COFFEE?  Is there such a thing as GOOD COFFEE?  It all stinks the same to me.

You need a cup of fine Kona coffee, brewed to perfection. That stuff you get in a paper cup from vending machines isn't coffee.

Bad Coffee??

There is no such thing as BAD coffee!!  

The old bumper sticker says "A Bad Day Hunting is Better than a Good Day Working"

A bad cup of coffee is a lot better than no coffee at all, although I really prefer good coffee!  :)
Funny... I have a story about that...

Good Thing...

Well, the great thing is that we can agree to disagree and I can still enjoy my morning cup of coffee.  At least in America that is, and I presume Mexico?

Oh, yeah, there is. That vending machine stuff is horrible and so can a pot made by someone who doesn't know what they are doing.
