    Don't really want to start a poll. Just curious about what kind of coffee you drink in the morning and how much. I am just being nosey. :D ;)

    I like Hazelnut. I buy a few different types of beans, mix them in the proportions I like and grind them fresh. I drink two 20 oz cups in the morning and heaven help anyone who gets between me and my coffee.

    If someone is pushing the line here as far as being a troll or making off topic postings, they'd better not do it until I've had my coffee! :D Even Pixel knows to stay clear of me until my coffee IV has run into my veins. *puppy*

    As in brand, or how it's prepared? The former is easy enough, whatever's cheapest when it's time to shop for more.

    Standard "10-12 cup" (typically about 6 or 7 real cups) drip-maker, and I'll typically go thru the whole pot in a day, or even need to at least start a second one. Coffee and smoking are my two unabashed vices/addictions. ;) And I take my coffee light and very sweet (borderline-low blood sugar).

    I was never a "morning person", even when I was working office hours -- typically I'd only start to feel like I was starting to get efficient around mid-afternoon, getting on to time to head home. That's why I loved driving taxi weekends, it fit in nicely with my "body clock" -- I'd start late morning or mid-day and quite comfortably go through till the wee hours of the morning.

    That was one of the very few advantages of unexpected early retirement, I can pretty well make ny own hours now.

    Well I like to drink a couple cups of the High-Test Dark Roast to
    get things fired up. What is it about coffee that reels us in? :eek: :D

    Take care

    Wow big c. Why didn't you tell me you were in the neighborhood? I mean you got a picture of my coffee pot through the kitchen window! :eek: I just like plain old Folgers. I usually drink 1 1/2 pots a day. A little sugar, a little cream. Summer and winter. Coffee IV? That's for amatures. Coffee water tower? Now that's the ticket. ;)

    I am wanting to try some coffee that is a little more exoctic than what I drink now. I usually get up at 5:30 and drink a whole pot which is twelve cups by 7:30 so I want something a little different. ;)


    PS I drink Maxwell House Master Blend. it is good goffee but.

    I figured that if we ever did get all the members of wilders together we might need a large coffee pot. ;)

    I'm on a diet of Fair Trade coffee, in order to support the small coffee farmers. So not only my coffee tastes good, it also feels good :)

    Yeah, a real thread about a real topic! You've hit upon a subject that is close to my heart, well brain cells actually, I don't have many and they need all the caffeine they can get. Seriously though, if you belong to any of the warehouse clubs such as BJ's or Costco I HIGHLY recommend trying some of their coffees. My wife and I are particually fond of BJ's Kona and Costco's Columbian Supreme. I actually read an article in one of my financial magazines, either Kiplingers, Smart Money, or Money that talked about how Costco goes out of it's way looking for superior coffee. Anyway, its a little bit cheaper way of getting an excellent brew, in my opinion.

    'espresso macchiato' prepared freshly ground 'monsooned Mallibar' beans in my Gaggia but I must drink it out of a traditional espresso cup. An art to prepare properly but worth it for the crema and wonderful aroma ;)

    I think you need to drink some more coffee. My play on words went right over your head.

    $2,000,000.00=the pocket change you were supposed to get me. :D

    My favorite is Millstone's Columbian Supremo but all the local stores have stopped carrying Millstone; I think they upped the price and the warehouse clubs ditch them when they do that too much. Now they've got this Sark's which isn't bad.. but not quite that Millstone either. I have a little grinder so I grind it just before brewing also... it's the only way to go!

    Hey Detox, BJ's still carries Millstone Wholebean Columbian, at least they do in our area, in fact I even have a $1.50 off coupon for it which I'm going to use next time I go ... that is assuming, of course that BeetleJuice lets me into his store.

    I like fresh ground Pea Berry or Tanazania Kilimanjaro. Mostly just Maxwell House Italian Roast will do me fine.

    As to brand, I'm not all that picky -- QUANTITY is what matters! On a typical Sunday, I'll do two twelve-cup pots between 5AM and when I go to work and, from work, multiple trips to the nearest Dunkin' Donuts as required!
