My Dad drinks coffee all day.  I swear his taste buds are dead.  He drinks this crap from Aldi and says it's as good as DD or Starbucks coffee. :lol:

Anyone ever have Turkish coffee?  Never mind hair on your chest, that stuff will put hair on your back!!!

I haven't, but that sounds like something I need to check out.
The stuff is like mud.  There are plenty of grounds in the bottom of the cup.  :lol:

But it taste pretty good, provided you like it strong.

I'm kind of a Mountain Dewaholic but I do love my Starbucks now and then. I can't drink coffee too often because it gives me bad reflux. The iced stuff not as much. It's a bit more watered down I guess.
I don't care for iced coffee either, but a coffee frapacino!  :drool:

I confess, I do like those, too.
I salivate just looking at this picture. :)

I said that I haven't given Starbucks any of my money since the '90s, but I buy the Frappucino, bottled, from the grocery store. So I'm still good- I'm not giving it to Starbucks, I'm giving it to Kroger! :lol:

But yeah, those things are ridiculously good.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a coffee with a kick??

I am on the road often, I drink Dunkin' Starbucks, and alot of local shops in various states, but nothing picks me up.
Wakes me up per say.  The caffeine does little to me. I was wondering if someone knows a brand, a technique, a method to get that boost.
At home about half the time working, and make my own. Open to flavors, styles anything. Love coffee, but my 2-3 cups don't do much for me.

And NO I'm not talking booze, looking for any legit methods- Booze is a rarity for me now.
Try a "red eye." It's drip coffee with a shot of espresso. I like the stronger taste the espresso gives to the coffee too. I order this when I drink hot coffee.

Im not picky, but I drink my coffee black. Strong, and dark, I think at home I have some kind of french roast at the moment. There is a roaster in town Ill get whole bean coffee from time to time. I use only a french press, there is a small pot that is on my stove 24/7 to boil water, its a gas range so it really doesnt take much longer than a normal coffee machine.

I like drinking coffee cold in the hotter months- I just brew it in the french press, wait for it to get room temp, and pour it over ice. Even when I want hot coffee, I dont like it real hot, I have to be able to "gulp" it down
Same here which is why I almost always order shots over ice. I need to get the caffeine into my system the quickest way possible and until someone invents injectable coffee, I am forced to stick to iced coffee. Even in the dead of winter. Iced.

Espresso. Black. No sugar.  Period.
Four shots over ice is my poison every morning. It's the best way to enjoy that wonderful coffee taste.

I have to good fortune of being friends with a master roaster. I actually hang out around the roaster with him on thursday mornings before heading to the office, and occasionally will eat a bean or two. The smell sticks to you all day.

However when it comes to coffee, my favorite is DD's. They've got it figured out. And with a glazed donut, you need no sugar with your coffee.

At home I enjoy coffee, Appalachian Morning it's called. A mixture made by the roaster. I enjoy spiced chai as much as coffee

I live about 4 miles from a Starbucks roasting plant.  I love their french roast, and that's what the wife and I usually drink.  We buy it at Costco when it goes on sale...works out to less than $5/pound.  We switched a couple of months ago when we ran out of the french roast and couldn't replace it at a good price.  The new coffee is a lighter Colombian roast. with a nuttier, milder flavor to it, which is OK, but not great.  The Starbucks is back on sale so I just bought a bunch and am looking forward to opening it up soon.

The darker the better, please.

Germany serves "eiskaffee".  Black coffee poured over a scoop of ice cream in a parfait glass.  It's is delicious!

That does sound good! I don't have much of a sweet tooth but I sometimes get coffee ice cream and drizzle chocolate over top. And sometimes, when I can find them, I get coffee hard candies.

I LOVE the flavor of coffee. And the smell of it. It's euphoric. I swear.

Hot and full of creamy, artificially flavored vegetable oil!

Although, now Coffee Mate makes "Natural Bliss" which is just cream and junk.

You can make a really good ice coffee using that. It involves whisking it together with sugar/caramel syrup and ice cold water. I can't tell you exactly how because I don't know. My sister makes it and it tastes exactly like the canned ones from Starbucks.
