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?

So, lemme ask, if you don't use paper filters (including the unbleached) what do they use? How to they know if their temp is 200 degrees.

I would never roast green beans. Too much work. I would like to try a French Press though. I hear they make a really good tasting coffee.
I've got a couple friends that roast their own. They've become quite adept at it, started by using a specific style of hot air popcorn poppers.

Oh I started drinking it at age 13 or 14.

Drink it daily. A cup or two in the mornings 95% of the time only.

Have not tried MD's premiums. I do like Starbucks but not every blend of theirs.

Do you like it?

Very Much

Hot or cold?

Generally hot, not averse to a fru-fru candy ice coffee drink every once in a while, likewise coffee ice cream [Haagen Daaz 5] is my favorite flavor

What brands and strengths do you like?

Starbucks and Trader Joe's, also Taste of the Hill, which is coffee roasted at restaurants on St. Louis' Hill, a revered Italian neighborhood with lots of local restaurants.

Prefer the bolder or darker roasts, just feels more robust. Usually a Sumatra of some stripe, though I'm always on the lookout for a good Peaberry. No flavored coffees generally, though TJ's Wintry Blend [which has ground up black and red pepper, clove and cinnamon mixed into coffee grounds] is an exception of sorts.

Do you take cream or sugar?

Not usually, but not averse, if there's 1/2&1/2 around, I'll often indulge.

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

Pot a Day, insulated carafe is a blessing.

How do you feel about Starbuck's?

Too expensive in store, always on a lookout for sales or clearances for their beans/grinds, though. Will enjoy a cup bought for me thoroughly.

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

Just their iced 'candy' coffee, caramel mochiatto IIRC. OK, tough to differentiate with all the bells and whistles. I mean how do you differentiate qualities of sugar, cream and whipped cream?

What about Dunkin' Donuts' coffee?

Just beans at home, decent, unassuming. Could drink it for months without complaint, yet not notice when another roast was substituted.

When did you start drinking coffee?

In earnest? About 20yo.

Do you ever add any adult beverages to your coffee?

Never, adult beverages are generally a 'prepare for sleep' thing for me. Caffeine runs counter to that. Not a lot of interest in being buzzed and wide awake for hours.

Do you only drink it on weekends?

No

How do you feel about decaffeinated coffee?

Que? What is this, . . . de- . . . caffeinated? De, what?

The french press you just add the grounds like the old percolator days. I believe they have filters for them, but you eliminate the oils in the coffee been.

Thermometer I suppose. I also believer the good electric water kettles have temp settings. I know my Bunn coffee maker does not brew untill water temp reaches 200.

I really like panera's coffee. It's good quality and it's half the price. A regular sized coffee there is 2 bucks compared to about 4 at Starbucks.

Plus their bakery is infinitely better than Starbucks.

Yes Ive have herd that works. I read that its become popular on US Military remote outposts in Afghanistan. Kinda a hobby to pass time and drink something better than the swill furnished by uncle sam. Those guy have come up with some very unique ways to roast. Think I saw this late night on Nightline.

I forgot about Panera. I like theirs too.

I don't know how someone pays $4 for coffee at Starbucks. I pay $1.70 but then I only order the Tall size and not one of those fancy coffee drinks. The exception is the occasional Latte, which I treat as a treat. Like buying ice cream.
