Coffee Pet Peeve

Let me start by saying I hate coffee.
I try it once or twice a year , when I see my wife enjoying it so much.
I feel like Im missing out on something.
But, every time I try it, I just think it taste like crap.

But what annoys me, is when I see my wife carefully adding here sweetener and cream ( or milk) to the desired amount, when we are out to eat.

And then, the waiter ( or waitress) comes over and fills up the half filled cup to the top, obviously screwing up the sweet/ cream ratio of the drink.

It annoys me so much, and its not even my place to be annoyed.

Maybe Im just easily irritable .

Does this bother all you other coffee drinkers out there ??

Bothers me, I also use cream and have it down to a science. When I see them walking around with a pot I cover my cup with my hand.

Larry, are you a super taster? Because to people who are, sweets taste too sweet, and things like coffee taste too bitter.

I personally love the aroma of coffee and hate the taste.

Im kinda the same.
When I smell coffee, I can understand why people like it.
I can even tolerate a hint of coffee flavor.
But when i take a sip, of what my wife seems to be enjoying thoroughly, I wince, make a face of disgust, and complain how bitter it is. then my wife yells at me for even tasting it, cause i do the same thing every time.

I just feel like Im missing out on something.

That being said, she does the same thing when I have either hot and sour soup, or something with cilantro in it.

DH doesn't like coffee either. He did mention that he likes how it smells each day when I make it for myself.

I stopped drinking coffee on a regular basis in my late 30's. Had a headache for a week. Now we might drink a cup or two on Sunday.

I made a huge mistake a couple days ago. Got a latte grande with chocolate sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream from the place across the street. Then we went out for rum and cokes in the afternoon. Neither one of us are used to caffeine, so it was 2 am before we fell asleep!

Coffee *is* bitter. That's why so many people add sweeteners and flavors. I never drank it before I met DH because my parents drank it black and it never occurred to me to add sugar. He started drinking it in middle school when he had an early-morning paper route.

I add sugar and, at home, hazelnut creamer to my coffee and yes, when I have it seasoned just right, I stop wait staff from refilling my cup. I also only drink at most two cups a day, so I don't usually need a refill.

I can't drink coffee black, I need creamer (vanilla) and sweetener. I love coffee and cream flavor, but on its own it's overwhelmingly bitter to me. I can't deal with red wine or dry white wine either.

I don't drink my wine with cream

I've found that since I've not been drinking coffee much, it tastes wonderful witha scoop of ice cream!
