    Ok, we've set out a few hobbies that everyone likes, for example Photography (It's amazing how many photographers there are here) and I decided well, if no-one likes coffee. Meh. I'll let the thread die.

    But hopefully there will be some people (at least) that enjoy coffee for the aromatic tastes or the culture of the bean.

    You can tell, by now, that I happen to enjoy coffee for the taste and culture, are there any other people like me?

    Folgers; no cream, no sugar. I need 4-6 cups before noon, or my brain stays in neutral all day. :D

    Re: Coffee Craver, Java Jockey, Latté Lover?

    I love coffee too! My favorite coffee of all time is here http://shop.cafedumonde.com/coffee.html . My everyday coffee is Triple Shot Soy Latté and without coffee I could not function at all.

    aaaahhhhhh.....coffee....

    I grew up drinking coffee. My mom used to give me a little bit in an espresso cup when I was a wee one. The scent of beans alone puts me at ease.

    I'm sipping my morning coffee right now as I type this. :D

    I love either French or Dark Roast in most cases. I like it brewed kinda strong, almost thick (anyone who's had coffee & chickory will know what I mean). I use some Coffeemate nondairy creamer, and some Splenda. I like mine bittersweet.

    I'll get around to espresso in a bit. ;)

    I like the coffee culture of sitting on a sidewalk, sipping your drink as others walk by down the city streets laden with other yuppies :) But I don't drink coffee per se ;)

    Mine's more like sitting by myself, TiBook in place with headphones on while sipping on my latté. ;)

    But yeah, sometimes it's almost a ritualistic thing with some people. I like to sit & sip, while talking about life with someone interesting. :)

    coffee is the only must have thing in my day. Now tht I've gienup cigarettes, I can actually taste the stuff and its even better. Id your lookng for new coffees, give portland brew a try. Also, you can pick up bags of chickory at a good resturant supply store if you live outside of New Orleans

    I enjoy all types of coffee.. from any starbucks mocha-cha-cha-chino latte-o-rama, to the regular run of the mill cup of joe.

    My current favorite is Green Mountain Coffee's Pumpkin Spice (although its a seasonal selection.. I will be devistated when it is gone). I take that with a little cream and splenda. Delicious!

    Oh man, that is some good stuff. I haven't had any in a while though, maybe I'll order some soon for the holidays? :D

    I don't drink a lot of coffee, but I do get caffeine headaches when I don't have any at all. Addiction? ;)

    i've been enjoying coffee more and more. i like french vanilla and breakfast blend coffees with plenty of cream and sugar.

    i've like a few of the latte and mocha type things but when you get into those fancy espressos and cappacinos i'm not to knowlegdable as to what it is your actually ordering.

    its nice too have coffee when your working on something..or during class is great. but better yet going out to the cafe's and sitting talking with some friends is definitely the best way to have coffee

    it's so expensive though! she must've gotten a good price out there. at the stores here it's 25 or 30 bucks a half-pound! second only to jamaican blue mountain.

    haha the beans have got their claws in you!
    :D

    Yeah, Kona is definitely expensive...so good though.

    I'm damned curious to try the most expensive coffee in the world, which is actually produced with dung. It sounds a bit nasty, but it's acclaimed as the best.

    And yeah, I've got a caffeine addiction going on. I usually have just one cup in the morning, and maybe another in the evening or some tea. I don't want to drink too much, as it dehydrates u easily. ;)

    Trader Joe's has some Kona coffee that's 1/3 of that....I've been still working on some Café du Monde stuff that eye gave me this summer.

    Anyone interested in doing a coffee exchange program? Pick a favorite of yours and send it to others who send you their favs?

    Of course! I'm the only one drinking it, except when we have company, and with all the crap going on in the house, we've not been doing dinner parties....

    So I'll make some every other week or so, if we don't make it to Mishas.

    yeah i've heard about this - they feed the bean to some kind of cat and then recover it after it's been...disposed of...and then grind and brew it. there's no way i'd ever try that!!

    It does sound pretty gross, but it's raved about. I'm up for trying almost anything.

    i know i'm going to sound like a total coffee snob, but from highschool all the way to just a few years ago, i worked in so many coffee shops that i almost turned pro -- so it's hard for me not to get carried away. i've made an effort in the past few years to cut back on caffiene, so i'm down to just one cup in the morning. but you better believe that one cup is made from the best damn beans i can find.

    i get mine from a roaster in Ithaca, NY who import all their beans straight from the source (they've got a selection of blends from all over the world) and roast them no more than a day before shipping to you -- you'd literally have to grow & roast your own beans to get a fresher cup.

    and i would ABSOLUTELY be down for a coffee exchange! do we have any volunteers to organize? should we just collect names & addresses draw them out of some sort of digital hat?

    true dat! and while a decade or so making coffee for a living will teach you a lot about what you like, you also have to deal with a lot of customers who tell! you! what! they! like!!!! ... if you know what i'm saying. so i try not to be "that guy" when i talk about coffee.

    "I NEED A DOUBLE TALL SMALL MOCHACHOKABLABLACCINO WITH LESS FOAM THAN LAST TIME BUT MORE FOAM THAN THE OTHER GUY WHO MAKES THEM, YOU KNOW WHO I MEAN, THE TALL GUY? AND COULD YOU PUT IT IN TWO CUPS, ONE WITH SOY MILK AND THE OTHER WITH REGULAR MILK, BUT NOT SO HOT? BUT NOT, LIKE, COLD, EITHER. AND WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG? THE TALL GUY NEVER TAKES THIS LONG."

    (by the way, that drink is called a "sneezer" behind the counter.)
