    So how do you like your coffee in the morning? What is your favorite brand? What do you use to make it. Have you used the Keurig machine and do you like it? Personally I use a five cup pot that I have had for two years and I use half and half and some sugar.
    I have used the Keurig machine before but I am not sure I want to jump on the bandwagon and buy one for myself. Despite the fact the coffee aisle is slowly disappearing and all that is left is Keurig cup refills. I love Gevalia coffee. But its really cheap but its also the best coffee out there. Perfectly roasted. Better then green mountain and even dunkin doughnuts.

    Oh and any funny stories of missing coffee and mistakes you have made before you got your morning coffee. And where is the place you have had the best coffee ever?
    Mine was on a small airplane from Fiji to Australia. It was so perfect it needed nothing. No milk or sugar. It was locally grown coffee offered by the airline and it was the best I have ever tasted.

    Anyone own a coffee pot without a timer. I bought one to replace my old pot and forgot to check it had no timer. Used it for two days. On the second day came home to find the smell of burning coffee. I forgot to turn it off. It sits on porch all cleaned up but no longer used.

    Lots of cream, lots of sugar.

    My coffee maker is a piece, no timer, probably from the 90s. I often consider going to buy a new one, but ultimately decide that it's not a necessity.

    Best coffee I've ever had was from a hotel Starbucks in New Jersey, on my way into NYC for the first time. It was about 20 degrees, and I was excited, so the coffee was good.

    Kona coffee with cream and no sugar, if I'm having it at home.

    When I go out for coffee, I almost always have it iced with cream (no sugar).

    I make a latte macchiato (one espresso shot into a glass of foamed milk) for myself most mornings to start the day

    After that it's usually nothing but espresso the rest of the day.

    i usually have instant crappy coffee with milk and sugar twice per day at work. one around 11am, one around 3pm. if i'm travelling further afield, i'll buy a latte from Costa coffee or Starbucks or wherever for the commute.

    on weekends i have one with breakfast.

    Same here. I make a macchiato every morning, but usually with skim milk and a double shot of espresso.

    A spoonful of cream and sugar at home. At college, I like it black.

    I don't drink coffee. Had it once. Didn't particularly enjoy it.

    I use a regular machine with some flavored creamer and no sugar.

    If I'm getting coffee somewhere (it's only starbucks around here for "cheap" coffee), I'll get a venti skinny vanilla latte.

    A fusion of organic, fair trade, shade grown, artisan coffee with organic hemp milk and organic agave nectar in a reusable cup made from 100% recycled materials.

    I prefer instant coffee with a little milk. No sugar. I drink it throughout the day like water.

    None for me, can't stand the stuff. If I need a morning dose of caffeine, it's tea for me (new habit). English black tea is quite nice: Grey or Darjeeling preferably, but I have to somewhat shamefully admit that Chinese red is even better.

    And I don't add any milk or sugar generally, tends to obscure the flavor.

    Yes but what kind of tea do you like?

    I like my coffee like like I like my women - in a plastic cup.

    I only liked your post because I thought it could use another 'like'.
