    I've Never Liked the Taste

    I've never liked the taste of coffee. I've even tried the flavored ones and it was still too bitter. I do love the smell of the beans though. When I'm grocery shopping I always make sure I walk down the aisle with the whole beans so I can smell them. And when I walk by, I walk...

    Seattleite Against Coffee

    I am from the Seattle Metro Area, AKA Coffee Capital of North America, but I really don't like coffee. I mean, I don't like the taste. The smell is just fine. The taste is nasty. Any time I taste it, it reminds me of the time I drank sour milk. It makes me cringe. There are...

    I Just Don't Like Coffee.

    I don't like coffee flavor. I don't think it does anything for me, I simply don't like the taste. To me it's as preferable as spinach. Which is not preferable. I also don't like it because I have to serve it all day. And I often spill it. Which is not pleasant because it is hot...

    It Doesn't Help

    You to loose weight, it actually helps you gain it. I hate the taste of it. Coffee is actually not good for you at all. It's worse then soda you put so much crap in it. Half and half, creamer, milk, I feel sorry for that cow. I drink it once in a year maybe not even that and...

    Not Because I Don't Like It

    I really don't have that much against coffee. I sort of like it, but I only like it black. And it's just too strong then. I get a pulse of 120 for the rest of the day and become totally crazy. Nothing I like very much so I just skipped to tea. Tastes better anyway.

    I'm Not But....

    I do love the smell! I have never drank Tea or Coffee - I hate the taste of both of them, yuck! I really don't get what the big deal is with them and how so many people love them so much!! I could sit and smell coffee all day though, I adore the smell, just don't make me drink it...

    I'm a Quitter

    I have been addicted to coffee since I was 18. Even as a child my favourite thing was to dip biscuits in black coffee. My absolute favourites are black coffee, vanilla latte, caramel apple, bounty, cinnamon spice, white chocolate mocha and regular mocha. I love the taste...

    Quirky

    One of the quirky things about me is that I can't stand to drink anything hot. I hate coffee, hot tea, cocoa, warm milk, sake, even hot soup. There is something about trying to drink something warm or hot that I really don't like. The only one of the above that I even try anymore...

    Depends...

    I like coffee drinks from Starbucks.  And I like Mocha's, French Vanillas, Lattes, etc.  And I like cappuccinos and iced  cappuccinos.  However, I hate regular coffee, with no flavor shot or anything in it.

    It's Gross

    Just the smell of it disgusts me. It stains your teeth, stunts your growth, give you nasty breath, why drink it? If you need to wake up have an energy drink or something. Coffee is gross. Ick.

    I Don't Need Any Help Stunting My Growth..

    I try to only drink coffee when in a social situation that calls for it. I never wanted to drink it when I was younger, because I'm short enough - didn't need anything further stunting my growth. Also, my parents are so hooked on coffee that they will have a headache all day if...

    Nope

    No. I'll drink Hot Chocolate, and I'll drink tea. I won't drink coffee though. It always leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, so I don't drink it.

    Grandma

    When I was probably 11 or 12, my Grandma made me try her coffee.  Her coffee was ridiculous, she put so much in and it was so black that no one in my family would drink it.  But I got forced into it.  I have since tried regular black coffee, and of course Starbucks...

    I don't get how people are addicted to coffee

    and how it keeps you awake. All I know is, it's boiling lava hot every time, and when I take a sip, the burn surely wakes the hell out of me. #coffeeburnmealive
