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?

Anything over a quart gets me into trouble.

Hot or cold? Mostly cold. Thai iced coffee is great stuff and I buy the flavored Starbucks double shot stuff, too.
What brands and strengths do you like? See above.
Do you take cream or sugar? Yeah, like the smell of coffee, but don't care so much for plain/black.
Are you a cup a day coffee kind of person or a pot a day kind of person? Gotten away from caffeine everyday... maybe once or twice a week.
How do you feel about Starbuck's? Works for me.
Have you tried McDonald's premium coffees, which I hear are notably better than Starbuck's? Nope
What about Dunkin' Donuts' coffee? Nope
When did you start drinking coffee? After college... a roommate had an espresso machine, which got me hooked for a while.
Do you ever add any adult beverages to your coffee? I've added coffee to home brewed beer.
Do you only drink it on weekends? Usually late in the week.
How do you feel about decaffeinated coffee? Meh.

I really only have one iced coffee at breakfast. Goes fine with toast and eggs.

I think the chai you're talking about is actually tea. The iced chai latte at Starbuck's is freaking insane. I have to force myself not to have one. They are so delicious, but so bad for you. A venti has like 60+ grams of sugar.

Hot
100% Colombian (pretty consistent profile across brands).
Straight-up, no additives
Used to grind beans, but don't do that any longer. The bean grinder is now a spice grinder.

There is some vile coffee out there. I remember a few years ago I bought Folger's Classic Roast and threw it out after one pot.

No, Thai... coffee, ice, add cream and sugar until it tastes like candy. It's the perfect drink for a spicy Thai meal.

I take mine with 2 sugars and some creamer. I'll drink it black if I absolutely have to...but I prefer my coffee with sugar and cream.

I think it could be argued that cold-brewed coffee actually tastes more like real coffee than hot. The reason is that traditional hot-brew methods destroy flavor compounds.

Once I make my cold-brew concentrate, I'll fill my cup with ice, add one packet of Splenda, fill about 2/3 with concentrate and top with milk or half-and-half. It's very tasty, and infinitely more refreshing than hot coffee, if you ask me.
Maybe I have just had bad experiences with it, but I have never liked it. It just does not seem right to me. Maybe I will try your way, the stuff I had was store bought.

For those of you who are pot a day drinkers, do you get really bad caffeine withdrawal if forced to skip a day?

For the poll: Hot, little bit of milk, pot a day, D&D is good, Starbucks is overpriced and over-rated, no booze in it, no decaf.

Not here. The hipster's hangout mostly at the locally-owned shops.

Starbuck's is a place for suits to network...

The most important part of iced coffee is that it's cold brewed. Some place sell hot-brewed coffee that's been allowed to cool and poured over ice. That will yield a pretty bad tasting cup.
