A Conversation for Coffee
Mary Started conversation Dec 13, 2000
the addition of anything other than alcohol to coffee is poison. people who add sugar and/or cream should not be allowed to even order/buy,attempt or make coffee. and to my way of thinking should be escorted out of the gene pool.
The addition of sugar to coffee is indeed poison. However you are rather narrow minded in your coffee cosumption and should experiment by adding new, inovative ingredients. Boldly go where no coffee drinker has gone before and reach caffine levels that would kill a normal man/woman. Smite the unbelievers with instant De-caffe! Go forth and filter!!

well - read somewhere that caffeine's main effect depends on the mobilisation of sugar in our bodies - and since people tend to have a relativly low sugar-level in the morning, adding sugar actually increases/permits the effect of caffeine.
(i've heard of some people who actually drink coffee for the effect, and not the taste)

People who drink coffee not for the taste?
Can you believe that some people feel that espresso is too strong? I will never understand these people.
Espresso can never be too strong. personally I frequently make my espresso machine explode because of the amount of coffee I cram into It
I greatly impressed a programmer friend a couple of years back by putting two sachets of "instant cappuccino" into a large mug, then making it up with strong filter coffee which had evaporated to 2/3rds its original volume in the pot. Yummy...
I once crmmed so much coffee into my espresso machine it exploded. That was good coffee.

I still fondly remember my first coffee experience.
Ah, yes... my friend was brewing. And he screwed it up. Oh, but for the best, I assure you! Yup, that stuff was blacker than the dead of night. Strong, strong coffee. And I don't like hot stuff, so I naturally had to let it sit for a while before drinking. Had about 3 cups of COLD, strong-as-Hell coffee.
It was bitter as Hell, but that's one thing I've actually come to like about coffee. The bitterness is a refreshing change from my usual beverages, those being milk and iced tea. Strong espresso and sweet desserts seem to go together especially well.
Which begs a new topic. What, if anything, do you like to eat when you drink coffee?
Germans like cake. I'm surprised the traditional "Kaffee und Kuchen" wasn't mentioned here.
Iced tea? Now *that* is sacrilege.

If iced tea is sacrilige, may I be burned as a heretic!

you'd expect us to burn you, and noone expects the spanish inquisition.
