    No, Thank You?

    I adore coffee.  I'm an addict.  I need it in the morning and during the day and sometimes I drink an expresso or two before going to sleep.  I sleep like an ox or a rock or whatever. Needless to say that I prefer the coffee to be as it should be.  Strong...

    Reheated

    One of my first jobs was at a restaurant/cafe. There was always a pot of regular and a pot of decaf coffee that we just reheated until it was all gone. Then we'd be able to make a fresh pot. Back then, that was the only coffee I'd ever tried. I didn't drink any Starbucks or...

    My Former Roommates

    Ewww yes!!!! I bought one of those programmable coffee makers because I once had a roommate that thought you should mix equal parts water with your coffee.  He was very sweet and would always make me coffee in the morning but after a cup of his coffee I would literally shake...

    I Was In The Army

    We drank what was presented to us.  One particularly nasty offering prompted me to ask the cook how he made this brew.  He matter of factly told me he just kept adding grounds and water.  Never cleaned it, never changed it.  For months.Stuff kept me up though.

    As Far As I'm Concerned...

    Some people have called me a "coffee snob." I do not protest to this nickname, however I wouldn't say that I'm super particular. My biggest rule when it comes to coffee drinking is this: A pot of coffee can only be brewed and consumed in one hour....no more. After one hour coffee...

    Oily Coffee

    I've had this on more than on occaision. I guess it's to do with how long the coffee has been filtering for or where the cups are kept, the milk is kept. But oily coffee is the worst. It's like....coffee tasting oily water with added milk.
