I hate coffee - can't see how anyone can drink it in any substantial quantity. Cup of tea for brekkie though is the way to start the day,

Like my photography? Buy some here....

I drink big mugs with two teabags worth of green tea brewed in them. It's nice but on an empty stomach it's liable to make me really nauseous

I'm easy and drink either, but do like to start the day with tea. Coffee just doesn't go a with a bacon sarny somehow.

Normally, I prefer to grind my own and all, but if I'm short on time, Dunkin Donuts coffee is pretty good. But, I've been drinking less and less coffee lately. I haven't had a cup in about a week.

Tully's Kona Blend for me this morning. Plenty tasty!

I have one of the Keurig machines that takes the K-Cups (because it's usually just me drinking the coffee). It works out perfect.

How I start my day...

Starbucks French Roast, très délicieux .

For a midday pick me up I indulge in some theobromine, though it has to be of the < 70%.

Cool.

Here's mine:

Sprite (that was sitting on my nightstand all night, and is now warm and flat), Coffee, Sprite, Green Tea (cold), Water, Coffee, Sprite, Green Tea (cold), Coffee, Water, Black Tea (hot), Water, Coffee, Green Tea (cold), Water, Sprite (which sits on my nightstand all night).

...with 20mg of Percoset every 4 hours mixed in there (therefore, no alcohol).

One of my favorite things is to see a young person discover coffee. After all, there's nothing else that affects your life the same way as coffee. And until they really get used to it, they act like Christmas morning. (Plus, they associate it with doing something "grown up" as well.)
Welcome, kids, to the undisputed greatest thing in the universe.

Coffee is the meaning of life.

I can't stand the taste of coffee; Any flavor you shove down my throat, doesn't matter which one...I would rather go back to that one day when I was a child tasting glue from a bear-shaped bottle in an arts & crafts store thinking it was honey, over drinking coffee...

It's why I hate going to Starbucks with my cousin Justin (Though I still get their vanilla bean frap, because I'm a sucker for vanilla-flavored stuff)...

From Wikipedia
There is a possible association between theobromine and an increased risk of suffering from prostate cancer.

Theobromine can cause sleeplessness, tremors, restlessness, anxiety, as well as contribute to increased production of urine. Additional side effects include loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting.
All good stuff.

Omg I came back from Panera a while ago with a cafe mocha and it was really loaded with espresso so I'm talking without any punctuation whatsoever and I think it's worrying my mom a bit because I jitter a while after I have one of those and I probably won't fall asleep til 3am tonight and then I'll wake up at 7:00 and complain that I didn't get any sleep even though it's really my fault for getting a cafe mocha in the afternoon. o_O

I've given up coffee in the morning in favor of tomato juice. It does me a lot better. Once I got used to not having caffeine in the morning, I became a morning person. I go to bed at 10:00 now.

Now that is coffee, the best in the world. I usually drink the Mocha Gourmet, although the store quite often runs out of it.
I think I'll have one mug (with the 2 pods) now.

I have a Senseo. While I do think that the pods are actually pretty good, it would really be nice if it had an option to use your own coffee as well. The pods aren't good enough that I don't want my own anymore.

Mmmm! Coffee. How could I live without coffee.

Starbucks coffee.... tasteless bile. Go find a small roaster. In Hillsboro here, that would be BJ's coffee.

BJ's "Roastmaster" is the perfect coffee. I'm sure you could find something good where you are, but it won't be Starbucks.

Going to Starbucks to get good coffee is like going to McDonalds to get a good burger. How many friends have I converted?

The world is full of crappy tasting french roast. I used to feel that way, until I found out that there is such a thing as good french roast.

Another thing that has been good is that a lot of African coffee has been on the market in the last year or so. The price is pretty good and the quality is excellent.

Likewise. Pretty much (I never ate glue).

If you want to try something new, ask for a "Chai Creme Frappuccino" (sometimes, oddly, called a "chai latte frappuccino") I get it double-strong, but be warned, it's like getting punched in the face with Chai flavor. I've actually had it hurt.

Somehow being a guy and ordering a "Chai Creme Frappuccino" doesn't work for me. It could give me a desire to listen to Whitney Houston and sing show tunz....

Yes, I'm sure of it. It would be a prerequisite. I would have to turn totally, unequivocally gay first.
