Coffee Thread
« on: February 05, 2012, 12:46:22 PM »
I just took a gig at Starbucks as a shift manager and have been trying lots of new coffees lately.  Not just the crazy syrupy lattes that a lot of folks order, but darker/lighter roasts from different regions, etc.  I used to exclusively drink the Sumatra that Starbucks sells, but have recently become more open to some of the lighter roasts that they just launched.

I drink it black, but I occasionally like a flavored drink, like a mocha.  Also a big fan of really good chai.

A lot of people don't really like coffee.  My fiance thinks that the smell-to-taste ratio is just way off.  But I love it, all kinds of it.

What are your favorites?  I don't know as much outside Starbucks as I'd like to and I really like trying new stuff...so have at you.

Lattés are fine but I lean toward cappucinos. I love it when I work the wand perfectly and get a dense, fluffy meringue kinda thing going. Chai is so damn good too. I love herbal teas as well. Beyond that, I also love a good double shot of espresso if I'm chillin' on a non-drinking night and want a lil pep in my step.

OT: I only drink decaf, so I don't drink coffee hardly ever anymore. Starbucks coffee blows. If you like Starbucks and you think you're a coffee snob, you probably have buddy holly glasses and wear fedoras and v neck shirts.

I had read the original post twice to be sure but it clicked. ;)

A lot of the coffees I've tried are all very similar to each other at Starbucks.  They tend to taste a bit...burnt, I guess would be the word.  But they are good, to me.

I give no fuck about the place from which it came, nor what additions were made.

All I demand is that it be nice and lukewarm so I can chug it down and get some well-needed caffeine in my system.

When I started consuming coffee on a regular basis, my life got about twice as good. I'm not into soda or other caffeinated drinks. Caffeine really does make a difference.

You know, I don't like the taste of coffee that much. I'd rather just have a shot of caffeine and get it over with.

Espresso and Caffè macchiato is the way to go. But since I don't own an espresso machine I usually just drink filter coffee, Dark roast, of course. The reason being buying coffee out and about is expensive in the long run... at least in Sweden.

The moment I drink, I'm in the bathroom in 5 minutes. It can ruin my morning. That being said, I like macchiatos and a good cup of Joe with milk and sugar.

It is pretty expensive. At my pharmacy we usually make 5011 coffee runs every single day and it adds up REAALLYYY fast. Geez.

I always prefer black coffee. I never get the sugary drinks - cappuccinos, etc.

Not a fan of Starbucks though. In fact, I think I read somewhere that they burn their beans to give it a "certain" taste. If they're all that's around though, I can tolerate it.

I want to slap baby giraffes when someone puts sugar in their coffee, it totally ruins the taste in my opinion. I just put a splash of milk in mine that it's sort of dark brown-ish color.

This man speaks the truth. :tup

I buy lattés from Espresso House on regular occasions. I'm not sure if exists in USA? It's similar to Starbucks.

And when I'm working, I'm always working on filling my blood system with so much coffee that I simply call it coffein system instead.

I also hate sugar in coffee, totally ruins it.  I'm trying to get into short blacks, but it's a little too strong for me.  I'd rather use coffee as a stimulant than a drink, but a perfectly made coffee is amazing some days.

Yeah totally. Espresso's are good too, but those are just caffeine-bombs, so I guess I use those are a stimulant too. But coffee has become my main drink in the past couple of years.

Actually it's a common misconception that an espresso contains more caffeine than a cup of 'normal' filter coffee.

It has more caffeine per ml... but when you compare a cup of espresso to a cup of filter coffee then filter coffee actually has double (or more) the amount of caffeine (in mg).

aaand... I love coffee, I drink it black and when I have time I grind the beans myself.

Yeah I know but it's like saying a glass of whiskey has the same amount of alcohol as a glass of whine.

At least, I don't really know if it works the same way with caffeine, but I always thought it did.
