I'm actually astounded it took me this long to come up with this particular question to ask the forum. I can't imagine there aren't too many people on here who don't drink coffee on the forum. Unless they prefer tea, water, or other.

Personally, I used to be someone who liked hot coffee because of my grandpa. He used to let me order coffee and put half and half in it with lots of sugar as a kid. And it wasn't until a few years ago, I owned a coffee maker from a garage sale. (Then I won a second one in a raffle, but both coffee makers are pretty standard, and nothing too special about them in comparison to the ones that make espressos and lattes and etc.) Eventually, I discovered my love of iced espresso vanilla lattes, and mocha frappes. And I haven't went back to hot coffee ever since. :coffee: Funny enough, someone on here got me started on the Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccinos years ago too. (However, I don't really drink those now because, I want my cold coffee to be more bitter.)

Anyways, here's some questions below. Feel free to answer any of them or none of them at all. ;)

Do you drink coffee? Why or why not?
How did you get started drinking coffee?
Do you like your coffee hot or cold?
Where do you buy your coffee from? (Do you buy any from cafes or Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Tim Hortons, Gas Stations, or other?)
Do you like your coffee sweet or bitter or in-between?
What kind of coffee grounds do you use and why?
Have you tried instant coffee?

Related to coffee, I wanted to see if anyone could give me some advice about making your own iced espresso lattes. I've looked up multiple youtube videos about how to make your own at a cheaper price. (I won't lie, ice coffee can be expensive to buy at a grocery store depending on what brand you buy.) But everyone says something different about making their own iced espresso coffee, which is really frustrating.

So I'm wondering if I should buy dark roast coffee grounds because, I want my coffee to be strong enough to be both bitter and sweet. Whereas, I've tried medium roast coffee grounds but, it seems to get watered down whenever I make regular coffee with my standard coffee maker. OR if I should try buying vanilla flavored coffee grounds instead because it'd achieve the vanilla flavor I want. I know I need vanilla syrup, but I wondered if the vanilla flavored coffee grounds was worth a try or not?

Also, can you achieve a latte without an espresso machine? (I'm debating about buying one sometime next year if it's something I need to make one.)

And please be kind. I don't have a whole lot of experience with making my own coffee. Or know much about coffee besides drinking it from various places on the run.

I do drink coffee. I mainly drink it because it provides me with energy. I can go without, but I'd be a little groggy and sluggish. If I go long enough without coffee, I will be able to adapt without any of it, but I will go through withdrawals, but eventually I can adapt.

I actually went a long time without drinking coffee regularly. I didn't drink coffee during my undergrad at all. I started with the lattes as I begun grad school, but didn't get really hooked until I relied on it heavily during a maintenance manager course I did for a position I was holding in the Army sometime ago; I was going off little sleep and long hours. I just needed the instant energy, so I grabbed some from the back of the class. I didn't care about sugar or cream, I just needed the energy. Ever since, I was hooked.

I prefer hot coffee and I typically buy from a a local small business, but I'm not opposed to the chains if I have to have a cup.
Even though sweet has its perks, I don't drink coffee with sugar for health reasons. I'm just a stone cold coffee drinker.

I don't usually brew my own coffee, but weak coffee I toss out. I don't do instant coffee. I prefer a medium roast, but I can go dark roast. I definitely seem to believe that coffee gave me a bit more kick in order to push through two degrees, couple of jobs and interns, and 9 years of military and counting.

Do you drink coffee? Why or why not?
Yes, I do. It helps me to start a day or focus at work.

How did you get started drinking coffee?
I was in the second year of my training as chef, where my kitchen head chef offered me a cup of espresso. The taste back then was terrible.
But I had a very tricky encounter when I was a small kid. Cold coffee instead of cola. Terrible!

Do you like your coffee hot or cold?
Most of the time hot, sometimes like in summer with ice cream. You should try espresso with a bit vanilla ice cream and Amaretti cookies!

Where do you buy your coffee from? (Do you buy any from cafes or Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Tim Hortons, Gas Stations, or other?)
I check if that brand's from Italy, since I really appreciate their culture of coffee. I never buy from Starbucks or something like that. Only when I am out in a restaurant. After the main course.

Do you like your coffee sweet or bitter or in-between?
It must have a bit of sugar inside!

What kind of coffee grounds do you use and why?
The common ground coffee. I don't have a coffee machine with those filters and I am too lazy to buy one.... I consume most of my cups at work. At home maybe once or twice a week.

Have you tried instant coffee?
Yes, but the taste is nothing compared to the real one.

So, I don't usually drink coffee, but I've been staying up for OctoberKast and I felt I needed a little something something. I just want to say that Starbucks Breakfast Blend tastes like water squeezed from wads of trash. I'll never understand how people enjoy that stuff. DafontShowboxAdam4adam

Do you drink coffee? Why or why not?
I have in the past. I stopped because I have never cared for the taste of it.

How did you get started drinking coffee?
Working Overnights got me into drinking Coffee. I realized i get the same caffeine rush from drinking soda or tea.

Do you like your coffee hot or cold?
Confession... I have never drank Iced / Cold coffee in my life... Probably never will. Hot Coffee doesn't taste good to me so i couldn't imagine cold coffee would be much better.

Where do you buy your coffee from? (Do you buy any from cafes or Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Tim Hortons, Gas Stations, or other?)
It depended on where i was at the time. USA, Typically Dunkin Donuts, though i have tried Starbucks as well. When i lived in Mississauga Ontario, Tim Hortons...

Do you like your coffee sweet or bitter or in-between?
Like i stated early I never really liked the taste but I always went in-between.

What kind of coffee grounds do you use and why?
...?

Have you tried instant coffee?
Nope...
