    I hate the taste of coffee. Why drink something you have to add milk and sugar to? But, I love to smell it in the morning when I wake up. Too bad my boyfriend rarely gets up before noon.

    Coffee isn't really all

    that bad when I am drinking it. Not great, but not terrible. It's that horrible aftertaste left at the back of my throat that I hate. No matter what I eat or drink after, even if I have gargles with mouthwash or salt water, I can still taste that bad stale coffee.

    But not tea. Just the smell of Coffee has

    even made me sick. Maybe hate is a strong word. I know there are people out there that may be offended but please don't be. There is something that may bother you like the smell of a skunk. Do you hate that? Maybe someone thinks it is a wonderful smell. I don't mind it that much...

    That Smell...

    make no bones about it.  i AM addicted to caffeine.  before i had my stomach modified i would make a pitcher of freakishly strong instant coffee on sunday night and put it in the fridge so that i could easily chug a revolting cup of iced coffee in the morning. ...

    A Long Line of Coffee Drinkers...

    I come from a long line of coffee drinkers - the kind that drown themselves in pot after pot each day.  It seemed only natural that I'd carry on this tradition.  Not to mention I always thought that once you got old enough that's just what you did ... drink coffee. I...

    I can not stand coffee!

    I have never tasted coffee, and I do not want to try it. I do not allow coffee in my apartment. The smell makes me ill. One thing I really hate is how society absolutely worships coffee. Coffee is always served at every social gathering, even when people do not want it...

    I Hate Coffee And I'm Proud Of It!

    Coffee is so addictive, everyone I know NEEDS to have their coffee or they get headaches or are in the worst mood. So I'm glad I can't stand the taste. Or smell. Although sometimes I wish I drank coffee for when I had to get up really early.

    I Hate Both the Smell and the Taste

    My first taste of coffee was when I was about 3 or 4 years old. I nagged a babysitter until she let me taste her coffee. I found it completely and utterly revolting. When I lived in Newfoundland, I tried to learn to like it, because it wasn't socially acceptable to refuse it when...

    Its not true.  I like coffee.  I have two cups a day.  An instant coffee in the morning for breakfast and an espresso after supper.  I'm not crazy about flavoured coffee and percolator coffee.

    Starbucks? No Thanks!

    I wish I could like coffee.  It is cheaper and better for you than soda.  I need the caffeine but I cannot stomach the taste of coffee and the smell brings about nausea.

    Not a Coffee Person

    I'm not a coffee person. I think it'd about the only hot beverage I won't touch. I'll drink hot chocolate, I'll drink any type of tea, I'll drink hot milk, but I can't bear to drink coffee. It's just something to do with the coffee I think that has me pulling faces...

    Hello Haters!

    I have disliked both the smell and taste of coffee for as long as I can remember. I have family members who like coffee, so I would typically leave the house when they would start brewing. I also have a lot of co-workers that drink coffee. The coffee machine is in the break room...

    mouth, skin, hair, and it makes me sick if I can smell it coming off drinkers.

    Coffee Stench

    The smell of coffee makes me want to vomit. I can't even be in the kitchen when my dad brews his because it stinks up everything. So, no, I haven't actually tried coffee, but if it smells this terrible to me, I doubt it will taste any better!

    Don'T Think I'M Crazy

    I love the smell of two things cooking, but I can't stand to eat them. One is hot dogs - it reminds me of Cubs and Wrigley Field. The other is coffee. It reminds me of home and the times I used to make it for my parents before I left for work in the morning. When Mom died, I...

    Too Bitter..

    But I don't like it with milk either.. If I drink a coffee.. Which happens about once or twice a year I drink it either black as it is or with a little bit of sugar. Coffee isn't my cup of tea, so to say :)

    Coffee Makes Me Sick

    When i was a little kid - five years old maybe - I had a really bad tummy ache, and my mother decided that a couple of sips of really strong, cold black coffee would help me throw up and make me feel better. It worked, but I have never been able to stand coffee since. Years...

    Scientific / Evolutionary Reasoning Coffee is

    bitter.  Add as much sugar or cream as you want, it is still bitter to the very core. Our taste buds have evolved, for a reason, to discern the difference between sweetness, sourness, saltiness, savoriness, and bitterness. Sour, bitter, and even some salty foods tell us that...

    Don't Like Coffee

    Drinking coffee is so much more than just a drink, it is a cultural thing. Whereever you go they ask, do you want a coffee? Or going out on a date "Let's go out for coffee something?", and in the work place EVERYONE drinks coffee. My first day I was told to help myself and...

    The Taste Is Unbelieveable

    I have only recently, and I mean within the last year, adjusted to where I can stand the smell. I almost like the smell now, it's very homey and comforting in a way. My mom LOVES coffee and I bought her a coffee pot that grinds beans and everything, so now every morning when she...

    The Smell Of Coffee

    The smell of coffee is just gross. I tried to ignore the smell when I tasted it but I really can't stand it. I always thought that when I grew up i'd enjoy it. Much like you do with fizzy pop and then alcohol.Maybe I just never grew up!

    Coffee addicts are zombies except it's "coooffeee... c-coooffeee..." instead of "braaains... braaains..." They're genuinely hooked on the stuff and most couldn't quit even if they tried. I tell them that they're addicted and they deny it (gee, what a surprise). "One cup every...
