"Do you drink coffee?"
Do you drink coffee?
[Of course. Coffee goes sooooo well with DUFUing.]
Personally, I don't. I've tried to drink a cup maybe twice in my life and failed miserably both times. I was younger then, so maybe I hadn't developed a taste for it yet, but I don't have any trouble waking up in the mornings. It just never seemed like something I needed, but I know a number of people who just can't function without at least one cup of coffee.
[What a wimp! How do you "fail" at drinking coffee? Did you also fail to be toilet trained?]
Sp what about you, Loungers? Can you wake up on your own, or do you need that caffeine boost in the morning?
[I love to be highly caffeinated when laughing at the DUmmies. And now to the other DUmmies...]
Certified Barista and Coffeemaster. It used to be my job to love coffee. Best job I ever had, I'd go back in a heartbeat for the right money. The pay was crap.
[Am I the only one who absolutely HATES that pretentious Starbucks word, "barista?"]
2 cups a day (one at home and then a vanilla latte from starbux) it's ridiculously expensive - don't know why I do it.
[It's ridiculously expensive because you don't know how to use coupons. I recently picked up a half dozen FREE vacuum packs of Chock Full 'O Nuts coffee with coupons.]
Charbucks?! :puke: They over-roast and over extract to skimp on grounds. The end result is a bitter, sour tasting brew but I guess for a latte you might not really notice. I brew my own, even at the office (French press). I buy freshly roast from a local roaster for about $5 a pound.
[You're right about Charbucks. The first time I ever drank it, I thought they burnt the grounds by mistake. After checking out a couple of more Charbucks, I was shocked to discover that was the taste they actually wanted to serve was "Scorched."]
Nothing like a nice cup of coffee and reading DU first thing in the morning.
[Nothing like a nice cup of coffee and reading DUFUs first thing in the morning. ]
Drinker and former server. I was a badass foamer.
[Newsflash! You're still a foamer.]
No. I can't stand the smell of it.
[Actually it was the smell of coffee that caused me to become a drinker. I still remember the incredible smell of ground coffee from age 3 which led me to drinking the stuff.]
I like robust taste, but without too much brightness or earthiness, so I tend to steer away from most African coffees
We got a pound of Starbucks beans for christmas, and it really sucked - flavorless, weak shit.
[I was once given an expensive bag of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. Supposedly the best coffee in the world. But when I brewed the stuff it tasted like nothing but hot water with a vague coffee taste. Very disappointing. Anyway, copious quantities of coffee will keep me awake Election Night and the next day while DUFUing the melodramatics in DUmmieland. Hee! Hee!]
