It rises to the top?

I'm wondering why any heathen would add cream to their coffee, gads min.

A splash of 4% fat milk, to take the edge off any bitterness, thanks.

No, I've never wondered

No because I always add the cream first so it doesn't have to be stirred.  Plus it usually means I add way too much cream.  Plus I only drink coffee when its a free sample at the back of the grocery store.

Same here. Even half and half is too heavy.

This reminds me, though, there was a time when I did put half and half in my coffee. Then, when I would pour out the last drops from my French press, at a close range, it would bead up on the surface for a split second just like in the video.

So now I know the physics behind it. Neato.

shiat, I just had a total flashback to my youth. Reach For The Sky, the story of Douglas Bader. I saw that film, probably about 30 years ago, and the actor playing the man himself asked for coffee and cream.

I wouldn't let that man's opinion influence my own, however.

Cream? I haven't seen cream in 20 years. Half & half is about all you can get these days.

Stop paying for such shiatty coffee, and you can afford to skip the cream/sugar/other crap that doesn't belong in coffee. To be honest, these days I'd rather drink the whiskey and coffee separately (although that's harder to do on the commuter train).

Heavy cream, or whipping cream is readily available.
We have a local fancy dairy that puts out a whole milk that always had a plug of buttercream on top..
Always a treat to drop that plug in fresh a Cuban style espresso

You did what in your coffee?  That's disgusting !

Didn't watch the video, but cream rises to the top because it is less dense than water.  I'm guessing the hot coffee destabilizes the emulsion, and then the water/protein bits fall into the coffee and the fats just melt away and disperse.

/what do I win.

Thanks to the meme, I need to go find and watch The Voyage of the Mimi.

Yep. Add-ins go at the bottom so you know how much you added. Then pour a little coffee, swirl to combine, then top off.

Any self respecting coffee drinker would not call what I drink coffee. I don't even call it coffee....it's melted coffee flavored iced cream. And I like it that way!
