How Does IAB Take Their Coffee?

Submitted by: skypirate 1 week ago in Lifestyle


Cream? Sugar? Dark roast? Light roast? No coffee at all? 

Strong and black on my end.

A splash of creamer (usually flavored) to take the edge off, every morning.

Coffee makes my throat swell up. It seems to be a minor allergy at best. I mean, it never killed me. But I end up coughing and hoarse soon after.

Tea is where it's at for me.

I prefer my coffee to be tea.  I cannot stand the taste of coffee, never have been able to.  I don't like the taste black, white, latte, cake, chocolate or biscuit.

I went through a long phase of trying to wean myself on to coffee, drank it black, milky, sweet, straight, half and half with tea even.  Nothing.  Could not get my taste buds around it.

I suspect I'm a 'supertaster' that recently seems to have cropped up as a way to define people that can actively taste and dislike whole ranges of flavours other people seem to like or tolerate.  I cannot stand grapefruit, tonics, most cruciferous veggies (although I try to eat some) coffee etc.

Sounds likely. Try putting ordinary blue food coloring on your tongue. Taste buds don't absorb the stain. The less blue you see, the more taste buds you have. 
People also differ in what tastes they can detect. My wife loves cilantro; it tastes like soap to me. We both like my coffee, fortunately.

scheckydamon Do you remember Chester on Gunsmoke? He claimed that the biggest mistake people make with coffee is to throw out the old grounds. 
He said, “You add a little fresh coffee every morning and let her boil. Shoot, you don’t make a cup. You build a pot. You don’t really get a good pot until you’ve been using it a week. Then it’s coffee.”

squrlz4ever I speak from painful experience. Both the coffee and the women. Also Welsh, but just the women, because I'd be prepared to give Welsh coffee a go.

Draculya Can't say I've experienced the women (almost had a thing going with a cute Vietnamese-American, but we wound up on different paths). Love Vietnamese coffee, though. When I go out to get pho, the coffee's part of what makes the meal so great.

“Iced Black Americano.”  A double shot of espresso, in a glass with ice, fill the rest of the glass with cold water and stir.  Quick, strong, effective.

I gave up coffee entirely about... 20 months ago? I have a half-cup now and then, not even once a month. Caffeine is bad for me :/

When I did drink it every morning (never past noon or I'd buzz all night!) I'd mix 2/3 real coffee and 1/3 decaf and make it really strong. Some sugar and heavy cream: ice-cream sometimes.

Just found this one.

“Guy walks into a bar and orders a beer. He sees a jar full of $100′s and asks about it. Bartender says, “it’s a manhood test. Put in your $100 and if you can pass all three tests all the money is yours. Test one, knock out the bouncer with one punch. Test two, go out back and pull the infected tooth in our pitbulls mouth. Test three, go upstairs and sexually satisfy this old hooker, she’s never been satisfied.” Guy slams his beer, puts his $100 in the jar and walks over to the bouncer and BOOM!! Bouncers down… Guy slams another three beers and heads out back. They can hear dog barking and growling and the guy is yelling and screaming. There’s things being broken and just general mayhem and destruction. Guy walks back in the bar and he is torn up and bleeding from head to toe. He slams another beer and asks, “Ok, where’s the hooker with the infected tooth….?”

When I was quite a bit younger than I am today, I loved the smell of coffee and coffee flavored things (like ice cream), but hated the taste of coffee itself. But then I turned 21 and at the end of one of my family holiday meals, I tried some coffee & bailys. Got me drinking coffee. Nowadays, when I make it at home, it's dark roast with nothing added. When I get it at a coffee shop, I get a dark roast and add half&half/cream about half the time.

I don't drink coffee, unless a need an urgent pick me up. I hate the taste and the after taste. I love the smell though.

I usually drink black tea, and about half the time I put a teaspoon of sugar in it, and the other half, no sugar. I also usually have 2 - 3 teabags because I like my tea like I like my women; strong!

Sumatran wet-processed coffee, 5 parts light roast to 1 part half-city roast. 5.5 dry measure ounces of freshly-ground beans to 30 liquid ounces of water, pour-over.
I drink it with 5 ounces (preheated) of half-and-half to ten ounces of brewed coffee in a 16 oz cup. No sweetener.
I usually travel with my kit. When I am unable to make my own, I go without. I'm compulsive, but not obsessive.

popsicle01 It doesn't seem elaborate to me until I describe it. I'm on automatic pilot in the morning.
I could never challenge fancylad's title. My wife kindly describes my customary appearance as 'disheveled'.

Black with a couple of ice cubes, I don't like how hot some coffee is.

The darker the better.

I also enjoy a Shot in the Dark...expresso shot in black coffee...for those mornings...

I love the smell of coffee, but I hate the taste, so I don't normally drink it except when I am dead tired. And though, I do like frappuccinos from Starbucks, I know that shit is diabetes in a cup and doesn't count as coffee.

1. If I'm making coffee inside my treehouse
Trader Joe's Kenya AA coffee beans ground in a manual grinder and brewed by the pour-over method. 21 grams of coffee to 315 grams of water for a 12 oz mug. Served with 2 tablespoons of half & half, no sugar. This makes a damn good mug of coffee, if I do say so myself.

2. If the local Starbucks has allowed me inside the store despite the stupid No Squirrels policy (curse you, Starbucks barista with the ring in her nose!)
A tall whole milk misto, which is about as close to what Hemingway drank in Paris as you'll get at Starbucks. It isn't on the menu, but most employees know what it is. No sugar, thank you.

3. If the local Starbucks won't let me in and I'm all out of coffee in my treehouse
Whatever I can find in the bottom of the Starbucks cups in the dumpster out back behind the store. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
