Nuclear Monk: Porous Horace: I take my coffee like I take my women - in polite company anally.
Mid_mo_mad_man: Black in a foam cup. Costing no more then a buck.
untaken_name: If you wanted a cup of milk and sugar, why'd you order coffee?
hlehmann: 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.
johnny queso: 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.
Strix occidentalis: Tempted to try the one with honey and cinnamon sometime. Most days, I just use my AeroPress to approximate an Americano.
Mister Peejay: I like my sugar with coffee and cream.
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.
BigNumber12: 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
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.

What you seem to be describing is a Kaisermelange./loved the coffee shops in Vienna, big-name or notthen 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.
Rik01: 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.
Trillian Astra: Coffee with chicory. Splash of half-n-half.
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.
DarkVader: untaken_name: If you wanted a cup of milk and sugar, why'd you order coffee?To flavor the milk and sugar. Duh.
