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?

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.
Yes, headaches, quesyness, irritability. Like a ****ing preggo!

I drink like 8-12 cups a day, if you count a cup as a coffee maker sized cup. 4 in the Milk, no sugar.

Hot or cold. I like both. I add quite a bit of milk so mine is never very hot.

I drink Starbucks in the morning usually. Italian, French, Pike's or Veranda. Seattle's best in the afternoon usually.
Their coffee at the location is very strong. I've read it has as much as 3X the caffeine as other coffee. I usually just get plain coffee or iced coffee Americano.

McDonalds ice coffee is ok - it serves it's purpose. But if you have them add a flavor it tastes like chalk.

Dunkin Donuts probably has the best iced coffee, but it can vary widely by location. If the employees or manager at one suck then it will be crap.

I will say this - it was hard to quit. I quit once for a month or so. The first two days I was literally immobilized. Like I was a heroin addict on withdrawl. Worse than any flu I've ever had. Headache so bad that no amount of Tylenol or aspirin did anything at all for it.
But then I ended up drinking it again.

Do you like it? Yes

Hot or cold? Hot

What brands and strengths do you like? I like roasterie but i'm not picky

Do you take cream or sugar? Sugar

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

How do you feel about Starbuck's? how do you feel about being poor?

Have you tried McDonald's premium coffees, which I hear are notably better than Starbuck's? Don't go to McDonalds

What about Dunkin' Donuts' coffee? I'm aware they have it, never tried it.

When did you start drinking coffee? Probably round 24ish

Do you ever add any adult beverages to your coffee? On the weekends i'll add irish cream or occasionally irish whisky.

Do you only drink it on weekends? Whenever I feel like it.

How do you feel about decaffeinated coffee? My wife can't have caffeine so on weekends that's normally what we got.

Yeah, I went to a Seattle's Best once and that's exactly what the guy did and it was awful... just as bitter as a hot cup of black coffee, and the sugar and cream couldn't save it.

Grind my own. Drink at least 2-3 cups per day. Black only.

Chai tea latte with 2 shots of espresso is the only Starbucks coffee I will occasionally drink

You should try some cold brew sometime. You may not like it. My wife was very skeptical, but she's drinking the crap out our cold brew now.

For a little, take about 1 3/4 c. coarse ground coffee and pour over 3.5 c. cold filtered water. Let it sit for 8-16 hours. Strain and refrigerate.

Then try a mix like I do: Cup of ice, 2/3 full of concentrate, top with milk or half and half. Sweeten however you like, I do 1 Splenda packet just to take the edge off the bitterness.

Report back, if you don't mind. If you don't like it, my apologies. But now you know.

Yeah, and sometimes they just pour hot coffee over ice. That's worse. Just diluted and nasty.

I always got bad headaches if I skipped a day, so in high school and college I'd rarely do that... went off of it completely for a while, which reset my tolerance to the point that one cup of coffee or a shot of espresso early in the morning will keep me up at night (as opposed to HS/college, where I'd drink a Mountain Dew before going to bed and sleeping for 12 hours straight).

So, the downsides suck enough for me now that I'll have some caffeine late in the week, usually on a Friday so I won't care if it screws up my sleep that night... and it keeps my tolerance down so it actually has the desired effect, and I don't worry about caffeine headaches. #gettingoldsucks

Really? I've never noticed any off tastes. But I feel the same way about Stevia.

No, it's not just you. Lots of people get caffeine headaches. I just don't have an issue with it.

I drink a shitload of caffeine all week and almost none on weekends, so it doesn't really bother me.
