Coffee with my cream and sugar please. I will be sitting over here on a block of ice.

I love caffeine but I don't let the coffee flavor get in the way.

Maybe I should make brownies with caffeine and skip the whole coffee thing all together.

I really enjoy strong black coffee over ice. Goes down quicker.

I'm just weird, I guess.
You're not alone, constance. My hubby is the same way. He actually really likes coffee ice cream (as long as it's not too strong) and doesn't mind the smell of freshly brewed coffee, but can't stomach drinking it himself. This puts my grandma, a complete coffee freak, over the edge. I feel so badly for him when we go visit. She'll continue to ask him if he's sure he doesn't want a cup and acts completely shocked when he says that he doesn't care for coffee!

Constance, I am the same with tea. So that makes me a Southern who doesn't drink tea! I can make it, and it's pretty good from what the drinkers tell me.

I have tried, iced tea, hot tea, herbal tea, tea with honey. I just can not aquire a taste for it. And I hear green tea is really good for you.

I like my coffee black or as they said when we were in Jamaica "straight from the mountain". I like it strong, but not bitter (like Starbucks ). I like to be able to actually taste the coffee flavor.

I"m glad to hear you say that about Starbucks' coffee...I've felt practically unAmerican 'cause I don't like their coffee!

I don't like their coffee either. I found if I use half the amount of coffee of what I would normally use, then I can drink it.

Very few people who I know actually enjoy Starbucks. The few that I know who do like it are the ones who get their coffee loaded with so much other stuff that it is no longer coffee
