Getting to know you: January 2019

Recommended Posts

I'm a coffee addict. I get my beans from a second generation Eritrean immigrant who lives in my neighborhood. He travels to new coffee plantations every year or so to arrange for the purchase of beans from the best slopes. He roasts it all in house in a small Turkish roaster he imported (particularly during rush hour because he discovered more people stopped if they could smell the roaster). And he's cheaper than major chains.

 

I don't understand coffee with milk, sugar, etc... I love it black. 

 

I brew a pot of coffee or espresso any time guests drop by. 

 

I homebrew beer and have added coffee to everything from pale ales to imperial stouts. I have a deal with a local roaster to trade homebrew beer for beans. He says it's "for science."

 

Seriously, I really love coffee.

Coffee? Yes or no?

Well, my Nephew and his wife bought a plaque for me that says "My blood type is coffee" Kind of sums it up.

No. I don't like the taste and caffeine doesn't do anything for me, so I never bothered getting used to the taste.

Never liked coffee as it is. Love coffee cake and Coffee Crisp, and similar things. I'm not against it, I've been trying it a little more with things like mocha with extra espresso, and my Coffee and Maple Glazed Bacon is phenomenal, if I do say so myself.

I think I’m a bit of a weird one with coffee, I do like it (black, like my heart) but a few years back a guy I was seeing said “you always have coffee breath” and I was so mortified, being thrown back to my school years and remembering that disgusting coffee-breathed teacher trope, that neither that relationship or my relationship with coffee lasted long after that. I will occasionally drink it, but it is not my life blood.

Missed you, buddy.

 

It's been an adventure.  Wouldn't recommend it.  House is very nice, though.  Ought to get into it sometime next week.

Just let me get there before you so I can decorate ahead of time, I hear proximity mines are in vogue right now. Though I do hear that proximity barbarians are all the rage these days.

No. Too many trips in the car as a youth involved carsickness and the smell of my father's coffee, so I associate it with heaving my guts out.

 

That said, I do have a chocolate fudge cake recipe that requires a small amount of coffee. It really does enhance the flavor of chocolate. And it does make a good basing material for terrain (coffee grounds, not the cake. Eat the cake!).

I'm surprised at how many nos there are. So I'll add mine. No, very rarely drink it. Lots of caffeine just makes me shaky and I prefer my water to not be brown. Don't care for hot drinks most of the time.

Yes, but I drink both Coffee and Tea.

I drink more Tea because too much Coffee makes me shaky, but I love my espresso.

And I also love hot Cocoa.

 

Let's just say I want it all!
