There are times I add some coke into my sugarless black coffee, especially when I can't stand its bitterness anymore. That means, I actually can't always take strong bitter coffee. I don't know about you, but I'd love to enjoy all assorted tastes (sour, bitter, sweet, salty, etc) while I'm still young and alive. :D

That reads a little like "PF 2 the Horror Movie" :eek:
...as intended... :D

Medicol, I see nothing wrong with weird combinations. A few times, I've used a 50/50 mix of hot black coffee and beer. It actually tastes a bit like beef broth.

At the risk of derailing the thread, I now feel the urge to pass along another delicious desert drink that doesn't involve coffee but is close. Start with an individual-size pot of hot tea (real tea, such as Red Rose or Lipton's, or any other brand of an English Breakfast or likewise; not any of that weedeater crap like herbal blends). This presentation is for bartender purposes. At home, make however much you want in your usual pot and just add the booze. Anyhow, you then pour 3/4—1 1/2 oz each of Amaretto and Grand Marnier into a brandy snifter and balance it (sideways) on the open teapot for service. The customer then pours the tea into the snifter at the table. It's called Blueberry Tea, and that's pretty much what it tastes like.

Lipton is real tea?

No, it is odorless dark tea :D. Maybe it's the hot water I use with it that always creates a brown "concoction".

Actually, I'm not sure. I use Red Rose. (Remember the Queen in the ads... "Only in Canada, eh... pity...)

According to Dutch research the Lipton tea contains sugar granules coated with bubblegum flavor, which is why II'm skeptic (source: http://keuringsdienstvanwaarde.kro.nl/seizoenen/2014/afleveringen/23-01-2014 [Broken]rogram).

The Lady Earl Grey has become a household tea for me, but when we've been out drinking, my wife and I usually share a Starbucks Cold Brew the next morning.

In honor of National Coffee Day (Sept. 29), Yahoo Health rounded up some of the most surprising facts about the beloved beverage.
https://www.yahoo.com/health/30-things-you-may-not-have-realized-about-coffee-114146178.html

I drink a two or more cups in the morning (I've cut down), then maybe one or two during the day. There have been times when I'd drink 8 cups a day - large cups.

I drink it with breakfast, and many days, coffee is breakfast. I'll drink it at lunch, and sometimes dinner, depending on circumstances.

Hi, I'm a coffee lover and I usually take it with cream. My favorite flavor is Cappuccino:smile:

Special Agent D. Cooper taught me how to drink coffee:



Enjoy your coffee!

I've recently started drinking coffee in the morning. General advice is that 4 cups of coffee is a safe amount. I'm confused how to calculate that in terms of mugs full. I drink 2 mugs of coffee a morning. The average mug is 12 ounces. A cup is 8 ounces. So I guess that means a person can drink 2.75 mugs safely.

I guess I'm different.
I usually like my coffee black, but I add a touch of salt to it which makes it less bitter tasting.

This is a trick I learned from an old sailor when I was working as a deckhand on a ship as a summer job while I was an undergraduate.
(Coffee often sits around in heated coffee pots for a long time on ships. Things oxidize and make acids.)

Years later I read somewhere that salt blocks or interacts with bitter sensations in someway.
Could not really find molecular details.

Cut my teeth on double strength black coffee.
Never wash the coffee cup.

Navy coffee starts off with five gallon cans of grounds. The coffee is dished into ten gallon percolators by drudge workers who don't want to be there and don't like coffee anyway. Boil for a few days. When it's ready you simply cut off a piece with a carbide tipped tool provided and chew on it for the duration of your watch, 6-8 hours for us snipes. At the end of the watch you put it back in the pot. DO NOT throw it overboard. Some of the chunks have made their way onshore and small animals and children are at risk if this happens.
