Nuclear Monk: Porous Horace: I take my coffee like I take my women - in polite company anally.


Ok but get it right:

I take my coffee like I take my women: anally, in polite company.

Mid_mo_mad_man: Black in a foam cup. Costing no more then a buck.


Bad coffee is like ordering a steak at a dive bar.  You can't explain why you like it, you just grab the salt shaker and enjoy it.

To flavor the milk and sugar.  Duh.

A cup of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe with just a bit of half & half for me.

Sweet coffee is a lady's drink.  The only thing worse is when people add those palm oil & high fructose corn syrup based, hazelnut "flavored", preservative infused, coffee "lighteners" to their coffee.  That shiat's disgusting.

Never understood the appeal of coffee. The flavor never lived up to the promise of the smell. Until I had an espresso. Bitter and smooth and not so big that it gets lukewarm.
And as a lover of dessert there is no more perfect dessert than an affogato. Simple and delicious.

I don't drink coffee, but will drink espresso.

Also  love Kaluha.

I make it myself, right back there, with a little lemon twist. It's good; you should try it.

Strix occidentalis: Tempted to try the one with honey and cinnamon sometime.  Most days, I just use my AeroPress to approximate an Americano.


Yup, this. It looks divine, or at least interesting.

/Cardamom or salt in coffee...that's interesting...I may try it today

I have gotten some strange looks when I order a 12 ounce black in coffee shops.

At home, about twice a year I will load up my mug with 4+ heaping tablespoons worth of sugar.
For the first two thirds of the mug it is good, then it turns way to sweet.
Just for something different.

The rest of the time it is dark roast plain black coffee.

Foams milk or half&half without trouble and has worked well for over a year now.
Expensive coffee capsules, though. You're not saving much over Starbucks.

I like my coffee the way I like my men:

Ground up and in the freezer.

Bought my Mom one of those 'capsule machines' by error from Walmart and was going to take it back, even though making one cup at a time was a good idea. The little coffee inserts were too expensive.

However I did find, of all places, on 'As Seen On TV' -- an infomercial sales spot, reusable inserts, with metal filters. I bought a set. So you pack one with coffee, drop it in the capsule slot and PRESTO! You have a cup of (cheap) good coffee. You get five in a pack, so you always have a fresh one to use. Dishwasher safe.

I would dearly love to visit a coffee shop which has a wall of bags of coffee you can buy and be able to buy a cup of one of those exotic brews instead of just the generic store brand. I don't want to pay $50 for a pound of coffee I've never tasted. I'd be willing to pay $10 for a cup of some rare brand though, just to taste it.

I rarely go to coffee shops anymore because all they ever serve is their own brand.

Oddly enough, one of the very best cups of coffee I ever had was instant. Of all places, it came from an early Kentucky Fried Chicken. They had, behind the counter, a dispenser that seemed filled with beans -- which was only a photograph behind the glass. Inside they filled it with their custom instant coffee and it measured out the right amount of power per cup. They added hot water.

The darn stuff was great! I was stunned. They don't carry the same stuff anymore, which is a shame because you couldn't tell it from real coffee. None of the many instant coffees I tried over the years even ever came close to being as good.

It tasted better than the Starbucks coffees I've had.

Also: Fark off, Foodbeast. In Vienna, a "Melange" is just espresso and foamed milk. That's it. What you seem to be describing is a Kaisermelange.

/loved the coffee shops in Vienna, big-name or not

ten foiled hats: abhorrent1: Stupid farking hipsters. Just give me a damn coffee.

There was a hipster-esque coffee shop I used to stop by on my way to work.  They were actually very nice people, but before they got used to me they'd look confused when I'd order a large coffee.

"Okay, what kind, espresso, latte, frappuccino...?"
"No, man, I would've said so.  One.  Large.  Coffee."
"You mean just..."
"One.  Large.  Coffee."

/was some damned fine coffee.


Word.  Every time I'm forced to go to a coffee shop I'm the only person in their drinking black coffee.  And no, I'm not tipping for somebody to pour me a cup of black coffee.

I hate coffee shops.

Cafe Au Lait with beignets at Cafe Du Monde is the PERFECT way to have coffee!

then you might laugh at this;  in 2009 I picked up a few phrases of german for a trip to Austria but all my coffee phrases were informed by viennese coffee culture.

four years later, I'm connecting through Stuttgart and ask for 'eine großer Schwarzer.'  The exasperated Deutsche had no idea what I was talking about and yelled at me.


/I clarified in english.

bearcats1983: We discovered "flat white" coffee last time we were in London. I guess it's more of an espresso, but it was damn good.


It's very common in Australia and New Zealand. I think it was invented in Melbourne. If your barista has an Antipodean twang, you should be able to get a good one.

Ah, service sector employees in the German-speaking world.  I've never met your like.

There are shops that sell exotic and rare coffees, and brew them to order. It's a niche market, so they're few and far between - most likely in large metro areas - but you can find anything on the internet these days. If you're ever in Santa Monica, I know of one downtown.

Do you think the instant coffee you got could've been Nescafe? Theirs is pretty damn good, when made strong enough.

Dark and bitter with a hint of sweet, please...just like my women.

Make that sweetened condensed milk and you have a Vietnamese coffee.

I like coffee-flavored coffee. If I wanted a hot milkshake...  no, I don't think that would ever happen.

Molavian: untaken_name: If you wanted a cup of milk and sugar, why'd you order coffee?

Because I ordered coffee, not some burnt to shiat hipster drink.


Hipster? I think you mean "trucker". That particular saying is a trucker's saying, not a hipster one. Not unless hipsters have been driving semis for 40 years. Also, burnt coffee is the fault of the person who made it, not the person who ordered it.

Shame to waste good coffee on such a frivolous purpose. You can't polish a turd unless you put in a whole lot more time. effort, and energy than you really should on such a thing. In other words, just buy a polished rock, don't spend the time to polish turds. It's just not worth it.
