Default Coffee Drinkers, let's chat about coffee

I thought it would be interesting to see the thoughts of others about coffee. I use to see my grandparents drink Sanka instant coffee. I dated a guy years ago who said to me that once I brewed coffee, I wouldn't go back to instant. I didn't lol! A former co-worker turned me on the flavored coffee (blueberry flavored coffee was the first one). Light and medium roasts are my preference. I enjoy hazlenut, snickerdoodle, cinammon, and pecan flavored coffees.

How about you?

I'm a diet Dr. Pepper girl. I will drink coffee occasionally, but not as a regular thing. I'd like to kick the Dr. Pepper habit, but the caffeine has me hooked.

Love my morning coffee. Taster's Choice instant. No flavor. Just coffee with a little creamer.

I like Kirkland brand usually but ran out and tried some Kroger Supreme roast and like that. I have a little coffee maker on my bedside table - I spoiled myself! Very convenient. Yes I protect the surface and have never spilled it.

Dang! I know my former co-worker would go for a bedside coffee maker! When she remodeled her house, that was the first thing she did was make sure she had a coffee bar!

I haven't had a Dr. Pepper since 2007, but when I did... usually a case every 2 days.

I've had that before but many moons ago, not bad. My husband will drink just about any instant coffee.

​Only an occasional coffee drinker, I am a tea drinker.

My DH hovers over his coffee preparation. If I was wealthy I would have a separate coffee preparation area in my kitchen ( or pantry - or garage ) for him. He is in the way when I want to access the stove, sink, refrigerator, and/ or the microwave.

I actively dislike the smell of brewing coffee.

But some of my family members enjoy it.

I dearly love coffee and used to work for Seattle's Best Coffee. And, yes, I know that they and Starbucks are linked. I don't like Starbucks hot coffee. I find all of it just a bit too bitter for my taste. I love the Seattle's Best lighter roasts. I love flavored coffees. But, not heavy on the sweetness. Just enough to get the flavor and a hint of sweetness.

But, alas, I can't drink coffee anymore. Or at least not more then once in a blue, blue moon. It gives me instantaneous acid reflux. It really stinks. Because I would choose to drink coffee over almost anything else. I like it hot or cold.

And, I have to agree. Once you go with brewed coffee, you never go back. It is a major different taste.

I can drink Iced coffee in teeny doses once in awhile. (But, not often.) I don't mind the Starbucks iced coffee that I have found at Walmart in the cold section. I do buy it occasionally.

I can't drink black teas for the same reason. Bad acid reflux.

It reduces me down to herbal teas. I can't drink green tea because it elevates my heart rate too much. *I liked that too. During cool weather, I buy an herbal blueberry tea. And, I really like that one. The trade off is that herbal teas give me dry mouth. So, everything in moderation. And, drink lots of water. lol, yeah, I know I'm a mess. But, for the most part, a happy mess.
