    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.

    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 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!

    I Don'T Need Coffee; I Have Youth

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 :)

    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...

    I hate coffee so much.

    But I also love it. Every time I have to pull an all nighter for school work I drink lots of coffee. I go to school with a mixture of sleep deprivation and coffee jitters. "Wired." And I lot that feeling, even though it does make me nauseous. Last time I drank coffee I vomited...

    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!

    I don't see how people can be so happy go lucky after drinking a fresh cup of coffee. I have tired it once and one word to describe it is NASTY there was a very short point a years ago when I did get into and start to like it but and all I tasted afterwards was BITTER and then...

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

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
