My favorite at the coffee shops is what I call a "Hammerhead"... I ask for the biggest black coffee (French or Italian roast, if available) they have and have them add a double shot of espresso to it. That'll get your heart started in the morning!

At home I just brew a pot of Costco's French Roast and make it nice and strong. Since my sister in law gave me that huge cappuccino mug I only drink 3 cups a day now (I don't care of the pot says '12' - it's 3!). Sometimes use a French Press. Trader Joe's Italian roast is excellent - very black, but not as much acid as most French roasts.

Kona coffee by drip, mellow and rich, something about that Hawaiian volcanic soil that makes the best stuff on earth. Only coffee I can drink without milk or sugar.

Yet another coffee hater here. You guys can have it all. Even flavored it still tastes horrible to me (and yes, I have tried it with chocolate). Blegh!

Yes!!!! Thank you for being one of the few that like true coffee.
Please people, by no means does month or many month old roasted coffee pre-ground compare to fresh roasted coffee. Keurieeeg, come on, you have to do better. Convenience they have, but if you like convenience over taste than McDonalds has coffee.

Support the local coffee shops, there are plenty out there that make good coffee. They will have more expensive beans. But if they care about what they do, they will never be more then a few weeks roasted.

I prefer the "Poor (Wo)Man's Mocha".

l use my bodum tea kettle to boil water, then add:

1 packet of Starbucks Italian Roast VIA (Extra Bold) coffee
1 packet sugar-free hot cocoa mix
2 Mini Moo half-n-half creamers
1 packet of truvia

I use a 20 ounce thermos from Starbucks, which l bought over the holidays (the hammered gold one; it keeps my drinks hot for 12+ hours!).

For a Peppermint Mocha, I add less than an eigth of a teaspoon of Peppermint Oil, which you can buy at the grocery store for <$2 a bottle.

Enjoy!

Also, for tea drinkers, Harney & Sons (harney.com) has been my go to place for insane, mind-blowing tea for 2 years now. Incredible tea across all types, from specialty international teas to the most delicate Jasmine Green Teas to really unique blends and organic teas. They also have tea implements and gifts.

As much as l love coffee, I've also grown to enjoy and appreciate tea.

I hate coffee so I picked espresso. When I need that quick caffeine boost, its a small amount that I can finish in one gulp and quickly clean out with another taste

Starbucks tastes like they roasted it with a blowtorch. Thus the nickname "Charbucks". We know coffee here in the Pacific Northwest and Starbucks (Fivebucks) is horrible.

Espresso Macchiato. It's just enough foam to cut a little bite off the espresso without losing the flavor. If I can't get that, than a Chemex or pour over of some sort.

Black tea - hot with cream or cold with lemon....NO sugar. And then, if you are really really lucky, you take those 3-5 sips where the temp, flavor, and feel is perfection.....tea nirvana!

Latte. And by latte, I don't mean that weak dilute hot milk with a splash of coffee for flavor carp they sell at that mermaid place. I'm talking a 3:1 latte with real strong dark espresso. By the mermaid place's sizes, a "large" should have 5 ounces of espresso in it. But they put 2. And that, my friends, is an abomination.

French press, vacuum pot, or the Aeropress for a quick shot. Sometimes the "where" is as important as the "what"...I will take my coffee in Florence however it is made.

Coffee is defined as water at 212 or close to it, steeped over the grounds.

The rest of that junque is foo-foo coffee wanna be's. Want candy, eat candy, want a cream shake, eat a cream shake. Keep that garbage out of my coffee.

I have a La Pavoni lever action machine that I use on weekends or when I have time for it. In the morning I depend on my Capresso pump machine to get me a decent shot fast.

When I run out of ground espresso (can't seem to grind it right for the Capresso for some odd reason) I do use a SMALL French press or a moka pot, or a simple filter cone or Aeropress.

I also have a rare Beko Turkish coffee maker with 110V (most are 220v) for times when I want something exotic.

Since I don't smoke a pipe (not for years), this seems to make up for the blending of tobacco and pipes that took away too much cash over the years (and preserved my voice, which I use to make money!) I still hanker for a tin of bell's Three Nuns tobacco from Scotland.

We have hard well water, so drip makers conk out pretty quickly.

I do like Red Rose Tea, even though I have tried fancier ones.
