    I’m a coffee nut. I drink it almost every work day. And I like trying new varieties at home. 

    Do you have a favorite? Lately I’ve been drinking Gevalia’s espresso roast, and I love it. More specifically I drink it with Splenda and caramel macchiato creamer. 

    Share your favorites and how you like to drink them so the rest of us can pick up some new varieties worth trying.

    Sometimes, it is impossible to stay ‘alive’ without coffee. My favourite one is black one with sugar. No milk! I’ve heard though, that white coffee is healthier, since coffee washes out calcium, and milk restores it.

    I don’t drink coffee every day. So if a want a cup, I go to the nice place with really good atmosphere and coffee.

    My favorite one is latte created according to latte art techniques.

    Lately I’ve been drinking more tea. Every sip feels like I’m cheating on my coffee maker. :(

    My favorite is chai tea. :)

    I never developed the taste for coffee. I’ve been wanting to lately, but just can’t bring myself to give up my tea habit.

    I’m torn tonight. I did tea all morning. Half of me just wants to hit the hay early. The other half is creeping toward the coffee maker. lol

    No need to give up tea though. You can certainly do both. :)

    It’s mainstream, I know.. but I can’t write and work without a cup of coffee. I can’t say that I will not be able to do that, but this drink just inspires me. I love the smell of coffee ))) My favorite coffee drink it cappuccino. Latte is nice too!

    I seem to go through coffee in waves these days. I’ll go a week or two where I can’t get enough. Then I’ll stop for a while (usually out of sheer laziness in not wanting to make it). But with hubs and I trying to start a family, I’m thinking about switching to decaf-only. I don’t notice a huge taste difference like some people do, so I can start cutting out the caffeine while still enjoying the comfort factor of a warm cup of joe while I work. :)

    Jenn, I’ve started trying coffee. Black, no sugar seems to be the way I like it. Not sure yet. I like the French roasts better — less bitter, I guess. The only coffee I’ve ever had that was fantastic was Kona blend. Not ready to commit to an entire bag of it, but one little cup at a time is okay. :)

    Sometimes it’s tough to find the right blend and style for you. There are a lot of coffees I don’t like (Starbucks tastes like tar to me). There are a few I do. And I’m still trying new varieties all the time, hoping to find my perfect fit. Hubs tells me he doesn’t like coffee. But in truth, he’s tried maybe one kind, prepared one way. And coffee isn’t something you can judge like that. There are huge taste differences. He wants to find a caffeinated drink he can handle (other than soda) for late work nights. But for the life of me I can’t convince him to try coffee any other way. His loss. 😉

    I’m glad you found something you like. :)  Do you ever go to Target? While it’s not the best stuff in the world, they sell tiny trial bags of some of their Archer Farms coffees. It can be hit or miss, but some of them are pretty good. Their pumpkin spice blend (in the fall) is usually one of the better pumpkin varieties. But heck, you’re so close to King of Prussia, I’d bet you could find something decent over there. I know some folks who like Steel City for coffee, right in Pville. We’ll have to get together and check theirs out once we get past the snowy season and I’m back out your way. :)
