Poll question: How do you make your coffee?
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 09:44 AM by mutley_r_us
edit: In case you're wondering, I'm sitting here drinking coffee, and I felt like posting a completely useless thread. So, here it is.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

6. Every now and again I want some black coffee
but usually it's milk and sugar. Today, though, I got a bit adventurous and put a little whipped cream on top.

36. Phhst
trying to hide your terrorist coddling arabica coffee with milk and sugar doesn't fool us. As if calling it 'normal' at dunkin donuts makes it right... We see your 'Merican hating ways!

8. As my American Studies teacher sayd, if I wanted a cup of cream and sugar, I would have ordered one.
All that goes in coffee is coffee.

13. When I first started it was coffee, cream and sugar at a third a third a third ratio. Now
I don't use sugar anymore, but I still use a lot of creamer. I guess I like cafe au lait??

17. Army style
Take a packet of instant Taster's Choice from your MRE. Pour it between your lower lip and gums. Let it soak in like chewing tobacco and enjoy your caffeine rush.

18. I can't always afford to keep cream and sugar stocked
so I got used to drinking coffee black and that solved that problem.

20. I set the coffee on the counter, have a moment of silence, make the sign of the cross, and then...
...in my best Paul McCartney voice, yell

Do you, don't you, want me to make you?



THAT's how I make my coffee.

24. well, I put the coffee carafe in the sink and turn on the faucet and put water in it
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 03:59 PM by merh


then I open the cabinet and take out a filter and put it in the filter basket and then I grab the can of coffee and open it and put one scoop of coffee for every 2 cups of water in the filter, in the basket, and then I pour the water into the coffee maker and then I turn on the coffee maker and wait.


I don't wait too long, I bought a bunn coffee maker as a luxury christmas gift to myself, to replace the one that I lost when the wind blew and the poopoo flew :blush:







Oh and when it is finished, I pour the coffee in a coffee mug and add 2% milk.

:hi:

34. Shove handfulls of beans up my ass until I'm full, and then vomit a coffee-like substance
which I then titrate the coffee out of.

41. you oughta have separate categories for milk and cream
...because there's a world of difference in taste. I would never use milk in coffee. Real cream is first choice, half and half will do.
