I drink a fair bit of coffee and keep trying new ones. Most of it has been instant coffee seing as it's the most readily available to me. I've just bought some "Kenco - Columbian" coffee, i've had the Costa Rican and Kenyan.
Purely for curiosity reasons -
What coffee do you drink/recommend?

My family has an expresso machine, so I usually make an american expresso, which is basically 4 ounces of water and a shot of expresso.

Using "Kenco - Columbian" atm, although i did prefer the "Costa Rican".

I personally prefered to drink "Nescafe - Goldblend" but my gf was givin me a hard time about it due to thier stance on "fair trade" :rolleyes:

(yehh i caved :whip: )

Almost every Canadian is TOTALLY addicted to Tim Horton's coffee. There's just something about it...... You can also buy it for home brewing and that's what I do.

Never tried expresso before...hum....

Here's what you should do: Get a grinder, and then try as many different types of beans as possible over a few months. Even ****ty coffee is okay, and does it's job, and at the end, you'll know what you like.

I prefer to keep a number of different roasts on hand depending on what I feel like or the time of day. I used to drink espresso drinks a few years ago, but I'm back to 100% black coffee. I love the stuff, and am completely addicted. It doesn't help that I'm the town with the 2nd highest density of coffee shops per person in the nation (after Seattle, of course).

ReelBigFish
03-05-2005, 12:13 AM
you mean the flavored beans? none. well maybe a couple per cup but i dont think anyone counts those and they never caused me any problems. but already sweetened in a can are prolly pretty calorie dense.

I've never had anything bad from them. The Kenya Estate is my favorite, and I also like the Kibo Chagga.

When I'm doing a dirty bulk, I'll drink anything with caffeine regardless of sugar or fat content. When cutting, black coffee or green tea is all I touch. I just need about 6 cups of green tea to wake me up. lol

My new coffee of choice is either a long or short macchiato. Used to be skinny latte.

We also used to be big on Starbucks and Gloria Jeans, but our local coffee shop across to my uni is the go these days.

I like an Americano with an extra shot of espresso.

What else is a really dark, rich coffee drink?

Colombian Supremo - Colombian Supremo Coffee is made from the finest Arabica beans hand-picked from the mountains of Colombia. A seriously dark, rich and robust coffee.

I've tryed a few different variations on columbian coffee and they tend to be dark, rich and strong tasting. Does the job first thing in the morning.
