    Haven't Had Any In a Week Or So

    I had just started drinking it because I was soooo tired every morning from no sleep.  But I decided I was going to stop drinking it and haven't had anymore.  I never really cared for the taste much and I put so much creamer in it anyway. I was only having one and...

    I have been told that this is very strange, but I really do love the smell of coffee.. the aroma is very satisfying however the taste, to me anyway is totally disgusting, and leaves such a horrible after taste in your mouth. So I will stick to my tea and enjoy the wonderful...

    Family of Coffee Addicts

    I'm the only one in my family (extended included) that does not drink coffee. Even my little brother (okay...so he's 20 now...) averages three cups a day. I think growing up with it is probably why I like the smell of it. It's comforting and reminds me of home. But I still can't...

    Ew Ew Ew Yuk

    why does something that smells so good taste so bad? I can't even sugar it up enough to make it taste good. I don't se the point in aquaring a taste for it when I've got coke, barqs, energy drinks and tea for my caffiene needs. Besides, I don't even like having too much caffiene...

    That First Cup of Coffee In the Morning...

    I'd love to be one of those people who can have coffee for breakfast or when they need a pick-me-up but that's a bit difficult when you can't actually stand the taste of it!

    Starbucks Coffee

    I LOVE the smell of coffee.

    It's such a nice scent and very relaxing. Unfortunately I don't like the taste of it. Too bitter to my liking.

    I Know I Am Home

    Noone makes coffee at my house. My 16 year old drinks it all sugared up, but not at home. I always thought that I would like it when I grew up. I am not sure what that says about me, but I still don't like the taste. About once a year someone will be convinced that they can fix...

    I like the smell of coffee.

    I would stand in the coffee area in the supermarket just smelling the coffee bottle. I drink coffee. I dont buy coffee if I have water bottles.

    Used to

    My first job was at Dunkin Donuts. I loved the smell of it but not the taste. Now I love both. Last year I had a cranberry creme brulee coffee! The smell was to die for all on its own but the taste was incredible!

    Omg....... I like the smell of coffee.

    Especially mocha lattes. But unless they're Starbucks or Duncan Donuts coffee, I won't drink it. I love the Starbucks Butterbeer. Its so yummy!!!!! It tastes like melted butterscotch candy. :P every time I drink it, I'm like " 'Tis tasty!!!!!" Lol. Its not weird at all.

    The smell of freshly ground coffee is soul quenching...but the taste of freshly brewed coffee?  Well, it's closer to soul-crushing...I know, I'm probably dropping a lot of jaws by saying that, but: EWW!  I can stomach Starbucks, if it's heavily sweetened and very fancy...

    It smells entixcing and gorgeous, but never is when I try!! It tastes bitter and I start wondering how someone could possibly love it. I like tea though, not the smell, but the taste.

    Never really liked coffee to be honest,

    I'm Blaming It On a Boy...

    I'm blaming it on my ex-boyfriend.  He was (and still is today) addicted to coffee. He's the kind of person that can't function without it.  So whenever we went out we'd go get coffee, or just meet at our local coffee shop to hang out and talk.  So the smell of...

    First Experience

    My mum loves coffee, and when I was little there would always be a pot brewing in the kitchen. She told me then that I was too young to drink coffee so I stayed away from it but it smelt like the best thing in the world! The smell was so unique and lovely, that I couldn't wait...
