Coffee, yes or no?

Since my college days, I've not been much of a coffee drinker. Of course, back then I'd make coffee with H2-Joe (caffeinated water).

But lately I've been very interested in cold brew coffee, as it significantly diminishes the acidity and bitterness and brings out more of the coffee's subtle flavors that get lost with hot brew. I made a gallon of cold brew concentrate, and I've really been enjoying it these last few days.

So I'm interested in your take on coffee.

Do you like it?

Hot or cold?

What brands and strengths do you like?

Do you take cream or sugar?

Are you a cup a day coffee kind of person or a pot a day kind of person?

How do you feel about Starbuck's?

Have you tried McDonald's premium coffees, which I hear are notably better than Starbuck's?

What about Dunkin' Donuts' coffee?

When did you start drinking coffee?

Do you ever add any adult beverages to your coffee?

Do you only drink it on weekends?

How do you feel about decaffeinated coffee?

Hot.
Cains.
Cream.
Every damn day.
Starbucks coffee itself is great, but their prices are insane and their stores are hipster idiot hangouts.
McDonalds coffee sucks.
Dunkin is decent.
Started coffee in late 20s.
No booze.
Every day.
**** decaf.

I'm 37 and I've never had so much as a sip of coffee. Love the smell though.

I'm also interested if anyone insists on grinding their own beans and how they go about doing it.

My wife is the real coffee drinker, and she only buys whole beans. We have a burr grinder from Cuisinart to do the dirty work.

So with it smelling so yummy, how come you've never even tasted it?

Do you like it? Yes.

Hot or cold? Hot.

What brands and strengths do you like? Not that particular. At home I make Starbucks Sumatra in a Keurig using the self-refillable coffee holder. French press makes a better cup, but with more clean-up effort. At work I drink Maxwell House from the community pot.

Do you take cream or sugar? No. Black.

Are you a cup a day coffee kind of person or a pot a day kind of person? Pot-a-day.

How do you feel about Starbuck's? It's okay. I make it at home, but it is too expensive to buy it out very often.

Have you tried McDonald's premium coffees, which I hear are notably better than Starbuck's? McDonald's regular coffee is fine.

What about Dunkin' Donuts' coffee? I don't see anything special about it.

When did you start drinking coffee? I was an off and on daily drinker since around 1980. Then I would drink it on a daily basis when home for summer while working. I've been a full time daily drinker since around 1990.

Do you ever add any adult beverages to your coffee? Never.

Do you only drink it on weekends? No, everyday.

How do you feel about decaffeinated coffee? Waste of time. I will drink decaf with dessert after 8:00 PM on occasion, but will often drink regular under those conditions too.

I grind my own at home using that ubiquitous Braun blender style grinder. At work I just pour and drink.

My parents are both the stereotypical "don't talk to me until I've had my coffee" kind of folks. I think that shaped my views on it when I was younger. Additionally, I was a bit of a precocious lad in my late teens and my first time through college. I didn't want to add any more habits than I already had.

I do not like coffee. However, the Keurig is worth it for the hot chocolate.

Do you like it? Yes

Hot or cold? Hot

What brands and strengths do you like? Not picky

Do you take cream or sugar? Need creamer, sugar not as important

Are you a cup a day coffee kind of person or a pot a day kind of person? I could drink it all day

How do you feel about Starbuck's? **** that place. Horribly overpriced and the employees are absurdly overenthusiastic. You're giving me a cup of ****ing coffee, quit acting like you just pulled my only child from a burning car.

Have you tried McDonald's premium coffees, which I hear are notably better than Starbuck's? No

What about Dunkin' Donuts' coffee? The wife has bought it, and I don't notice any difference from the store brands. Probably because of the creamer I put in it.

When did you start drinking coffee? When I was 19 and working in a hotel, everyone seemed obsessed with it. So I tried it and suddenly understood why.

Do you ever add any adult beverages to your coffee? I like some Kahlua or caramel schnapps in it on occasion.

Do you only drink it on weekends? **** no, I drink it every ****ing day.

How do you feel about decaffeinated coffee? **** you.
