    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 absolutely love the smell of coffee. I just hate the taste. So nasty. But the smell, oh, oh the smell is amazing. I consider coffee one of those trick foods. Where it smells amazing but tastes like ****. Yeah. That about all i have to write about this. Goodbyeeee.

    Mmmmmmmm

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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!
