Favourite Coffee

I'm sure there are plenty of advid coffee drinks out there.. so what's your favourite?

i use to be a big fan of french vanilla but then got board of that. I've recently discovered Hazelnut flavoured coffee.. that's my new fav for now.

(btw, i don't drink coffee that often)

Something dark. Usually French Roast. I really dont care that much though, I drink it for the caffeine. Like this week, for example. Gotta love the midterms...

Anything that's not instant coffee.... unfortunately I can't be bothered with the effort of making proper coffee so I just drink instant unless someone else is making it

Ugh... flavored coffee.

I don't really concider myself to be a coffee aficionado, but sometimes I really wonder why people do such odd things to coffee. There are so many different varieties and flavors depending the cultivation and preparation of the beans. Why would anyone go and destroy that flavor with something else? For me, I like my coffee black and unflavored, usually brewed in a press-pot (cafetiere). I like the bold flavors of India and the snappy taste of Kenya. I like the smooth flavor Columbia and Kona. Simplicity at its best.

I like Irish coffee black. It really gives you a kick in the morning . After that I like caramel coffee they serve in my building's cafeteria.

I don't drink coffee, much, if I do it's usually just a frappacino type crap that I can grab and go.

The only coffee I used to drink was from a local coffee stop called Caveman Coffee. I'd get a Tool, a White Zombie, or a Zombombie, or if I really needed to get going a Nuke (5 shots of caffeine). All of these had white coffee bean, and what not, and were all very tasty, and got my body moving. The original owner bailed, and the last time I went to the place I left depressed and have not gone back since (used to be the type of place you could go hangout, have coffee talk about mountain climbing or whatever, and feel good leaving).

For me, it's coffee-flavored coffee, preferably strong enough to eat though the cup if you don't drink it fast enough. I usually put something cold in it to cool it off just enough it doesn't burn me. As long as it isn't frozen solid, I'll drink it.

I used to just drink Vanilla or Raspberry lattes- but Starbucks just came out with a Toffee Nut latte that I just love.
Also I occassionally drink (moreso in the summer) a coffee frappuccino. I don't care for regular coffee too much.

Anyways, I love coffee, for the taste and the caffeine.

when I was living/working in the US, I'd oft make a daily starbucks trip, and either get a Breakfast Blend or Soy mocha.

No starbucks where i am in Germany (and i couldn't afford it anyways) so now i drink the stuff i get from the supermarket - a mild lighter roast, fairly cheap, but drinkable.

mmmm...caramel lattes are my favorite. When I make coffee at home, it's usually a medium roast, with sugar and amaretto-flavored cream. Every now and then I'll drink straight black coffee for the caffeine, and only if there's no sugar...I just don't like the bitter taste.

As you said, Qazwsxedc, the HV varieties are becoming quite commonplace...but still enjoyable to me, for the most part. I think the world has generally gone "vanilla" crazy, though. With that in mind, my wife's new obsession is the "caramello" flavour sold by The Second Cup <br>
<br>

I find most of what Second Cup and Timothy's sell is decent-tasting. I like medium and dark roasts, myself, but usually opt for the HV or somesuch flavour, if given the choice.

Yum. Pass the coffee.

edit: just realised that you're either a brit, or canadian, Qazwsxedc. If the latter, where do you stand on Tim Hortons? (personally, I think it's hideous stuff)

I like the breakfast blend kind when I'm going cheaper. I like hazelnut flavored when I make my own. From a coffee shop I love Almond Amaretto. I'm not picky when it comes to flavor. A friend of ours has a coffee grinder of his own and grinds his own (my parents used to do that too) and he gets a high quality brand. I can drink his coffee black and LOVE it. Usually though I end up adding milk/cream and sugar to coffee I get anywhere else or make at home. I can hardly stand instant coffee without lots of creamer and sugar. ick that's almost a sour bitter taste.

True, but my stomach gets all torn up if I drink full strength coffee, so I mix regular and decaf. Since I cant drink that much caffeine in one sitting anyways, Ill go for the better tasting stuff.

Umm, coffee. I go in spurts where I like flavored, and then back to regular. I like a dark roast myself. I used to get this flavored stuff called Mackinac Island Fudge (sp?), and that is great. Then I got this other black cherry flavor that was good. If I'm out, I might get a Hot Caramel.

Flavored coffees are good every once in awhile. I hate to sound classless but Starbucks coffee taste like it's burnt. McDonalds has the best tasting coffee. Almost tastes like they add some kind of artificial coffee flavor to it. It tastes like what coffee is supposed to taste like.

Exactly. I'm not sure where Americans go the idea that super dark roasts are high in caffeine. Maybe from the grind for espresso shots????

IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!

So my favorite: gotta be one of...two (make that three)!

1) Torrefazione - Venezia blend. Delicious light roast.
http://www.titalia.com/site/products...p?productID=51

2) Maui Peaberry. Complex and light. Yowee.

3) Kona. Not the mixed Kona that has those horrific Arabica beans in it. No, I mean the rea thing: 100% Kona from Hawaii. Nutty, complex, smooth, with earthy tones.

Anything with carmel is great, especially a caramel macchiato.
But my current favorite - white chocolate rasberry mocca, yummm.

At home I drink just a normal dark roast. Although it's roasted at my local coffee shop. Dark, Strong, Thick, and Gross.

My fav coffee drink to get at coffee shop now is 4 shots of esspresso poured over whip cream with Irish cream syrup stuff.

Count me in with the "strong, hot and black" group. But, quite frankly, I find coffee-shop coffee extremely over-rated (and over-priced). Starbucks, IMHO, blows... and badly, at that. A bag of Eight-O'Clock and a well broken-in MR. Coffee beats 'em handily.
