if you like it strong, i suggest going with an Arabic blend, although that can be a bit hard to find in the US. you can pick up a bag of it at your local Starbucks, but that'll be really expensive.

my personal favorite is to use the expresso machine at my house with a medium Columbian bean......

darn it, now i have to go visit the coffee shop. darn all of you to heck.

Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee (also the most $$$). The coffee I most often purchase is from Kenya but I try various types of coffees (I buy it from a specialty store). There are good and bad coffees everywhere.

I like flavored STRONG coffee myself

My absolute favorite is Millstone Vermont Maple

But the stores around here don't sell Millstone, so I am
enjoying the locally made brand which is good also.

The Southern Pecan flavor rocks!

And it is STRONG, just like I like it

This coffee wakes YOU up in the morning and says, "Hiya!"

Actually, I was referring to Mello Joy.

I just didn't want to use the name, because a lot
of people wouldn't know of it, but yeah, Mello Joy.

And to each their own, but I happen to like it

(I do, however, like CC's coffee also )

For Christmas we got a bag of Kona and a bag of Kauai from my parents who had gone to Hawaii on vacation in November. Hubby was home from Army for the Christmas holiday and made up a small pot of the Kauai. It smelled so good that I thought I'd give coffee a whirl again, which is what got me going. I have to doctor mine up with cream/sugar to cut the bitterness(or, and don't kill me for coffee heresy, those flavored creamers). However, I was still surprised at how much better the good stuff tasted compared to the stuff you get in a can off the grocery shelf. Of course, now that he's gotten me hooked, I have to find a good decaf version for evening, because I cannot drink the regular version after about 3p and then sleep at night. I'm no longer a professional student (at least in the formal sense), so I don't have to pull all-nighters to study anymore. :-)

what's wrong with creamers?? i personally find nothing wrong with trying to vary the flavor a bit. heck, i'll even go for instant coffee every once in a while. it doesn't have the same full flavor, but its still pretty darn good.

the only thing i don't go for is decaf. sure i enjoy the taste of coffee, but it just seems kinda pointless unless you need something to warm you up on a cold day. however, your situation is obviously a bit different than mine. unfortunately, i haven't had much decaf to really recommend a specific brand or bean.

Yap, green tea is the best, i could even say it's better than coffe, though you would have to drink like manly litres of strong green tea to get the effect of coffe, at least it tastes good. (Thinks of starting a coffe drinking habbit)

Yep, here in the Great White North, we need some warmth at night. When it warms up sometime in the summer, I can go back to (decaf) iced tea again in the evening. Since Millstone got mentioned by mjpb3 and my store carries it, I looked in that section to see if they had some decaf to try out. We got their decaf hazelnut and tried that out last night. Tasty! I couldn't tell a difference between the decaf and some of the other coffees we have at home, but then again my coffee 'palate' is just starting to develop.

I know this isn't exactly a coffee thing, but does anyone here get some plain cheerios and milk, then add coffee syrup? It sounds wierd but is pretty good.

Wish I liked cheerios. I'd go for chocolate syrup myself, though.

Yeah, I also built up a high tolerance during the college days. I used to be able to drink caffeine til 2am during finals week, go right to sleep without any problem, get up at 5am, drink coffee or Diet Pepsi the rest of the day, and repeat the cycle for 3 or 4 days til finals were done. Of course, then when I crashed I slept for the next 36 hours.
Ten years ago I could drink caffeine til bedtime and not have any problems sleeping. Now I don't know if it's a combo of getting a bit older, one of the medications I take interacting with the caffeine, or just having kids and being a little more alert for their cries that makes it a lot harder to sleep if I do caffeine after about 3pm.

Anyway, I'm having a fine time trying out all the coffee suggestions. Now I just have to learn how to make a good pot of coffee reliably. Sometimes it's a little weak (which is fine by me), sometimes it's a bit too strong. Ah well, live and learn. If one pot's really bad, I can always make another.

well for my family(this doesn't include me) they usually use 1/4 of coffee for 10 cups of water. which is ok if you aren't into strong coffee but for me meh I'll go with about 1 cup of coffee for 10 cups of water

Resurrection of threads can be fun....
I got this link to a journal article/continuing medical education today on coffee consumption lowering the risk of diabetes. Thought you all might appreciate seeing that coffee could be beneficial.
Coffee Consumption May Reduce Risk for Type 2 Diabetes

We've enjoyed Cameron's Chocolate Caramel Brownie coffee lately. Cameron's also makes organic coffee, and the birdwatcher blend is pretty good, too. I miss the Kauai, though.

I used to drink coffee by the gallons, but I gave it up.
Had to, caffeine kills my stomach. That means no Dew, Coke or Pepsi. Which is kinda astounding seeing how I'm up at 4:20am for work everyday.

That's OK

By step 8, I finally learned to live without it.
I don't even crave anymore.

My support group helps alot. We sit around and discuss various beverages and reminisce of the good old days of Jolt and college final exam cram fests featuring cases of Dew and coffee.

Every once in awhile, I will treat myself to a few italian expressos laced with vsop cognac though. Those seem to comfortably accompany post midnight Chess or GO matches.

Had to, caffeine kills my stomach. That means no Dew, Coke or Pepsi.
Yep, I had to cut way down on the Diet Pepsi in the last year for the same reason, but coffee doesn't seem to bother it. Sucks to get older....

Ugh, ack, Jolt. I tried that once, and decided if there was ever a beverage that belonged in Hell, that was it.

Try a match of Kingmaker some time. You may not finish the game before 5:40 am, but it'll certainly be good fun.

Coffee!!! My one source of sustenance during my long nights writing intermible term papers and studying for final exams. I like any coffee that is original blend. Starbucks I seek out caramel macchiatos and frappacinos. As for places like Mc Donalds I drink a standard 16-20 ounce cup of regular coffee and add some juice to it with cream and a whole bunch of sweeteners. My instant solution is iced coffee. Bring on the rush!

Waffle House (or IHOP) coffee == teh pwn

If I had my druthers, I'd nuke every Starbucks in existence (mainly because it's the main source of traffic jamming on my route to work ) hehehe..

hehe, i was beginning to wonder what ever happened to this thread. for those that don't know me too well, i probably drink more coffee in a day than most people, but my coffee intake has slacked quite a bit. that's probably due to me working 60+ hours a week over the summer and not having the time to hit up the maker while i was doing my job.

but since i've started back up in college, my coffee intake is once again increasing by the day. what makes it even better is that a good friend of mine roasts his own coffee beans as a local supplier for several local restaurants (beans imported from Honduras, i think). lets just say that he gives me a "discount".

How low to sink to the depths of their frame of mind

@Jae, Kingmaker huh? I'm curious. Thanks for the tip.

My girlfriend drinks coffee at any time of day. Sometimes it'll be 8:00 at night and the coffee maker's brewin'.

She doesn't drink the regular stuff. She's always drinking some aromatic, flavored crap that smells unbelievable.
Every once in a great while I'll regress and steal some.

I love the strong, bitter expresso the best.

We can drink coffee any time of the day here in WI because it's cold pretty much any time of the day, except on July 18th when we have our 1 day of 'summer'.
I don't really like the 'regular stuff' unless it has serious amounts of creamer and Splenda (Sweet-n-low is good in iced tea, but not in hot drinks). And I really dislike cheap coffee--too bitter for my newbie coffee palate. So, we buy the better stuff, including the mega-triple chocolate-for-the-chocolate-addict-super vanilla-roasted pecan flavored stuff, which I think is terrific.

Kingmaker--it's an Avalon-Hill game about the War of the Roses, and I heard it might be out of print, so it may take a little searching to find. You build your group of nobles (and therefore their armies), make alliances with your 'friends' to make war on your 'enemies' to suck up the nobles they have, and then screw over your allies to take their nobles, too. It's not a brief game at all, but it's great fun.

Meh. Coffee's not bad, but I'd rather have a big mug of hot chocolate.
