    Any other coffee lovers in the community?

    I drink it all day up till 5, then stop so my heart can slow down before I go to bed.

    I just finished up an Old World Espresso form Riverfront Roasters, it was excellent.

    I need to stop drinking as much as I do. Does the half calf taste the same?

    I'm actually getting a French Press this evening. Target has a Bodum on sale I liked, I knew if I waited till after the holidays I would be able to find something cheap.

    It only helps me if I'm having headaches.

    I have peppermint tea I drink at night. It helps with acid and indigestion.

    There's probly a little difference in the taste, but I've drunk mostly half caff for so long I usually like it better.

    Coffee lover ? Not really , a couple cups in the am to get me going , but you wouldn't like my interpretation of "coffee" lol
    2 heaping tsps instant coffee , fill cup just past 1/2 way with hot water , 1/2 the rest of the way with sugar , finish with milk. Looks like regular coffee lol.

    That's the way most of the world makes it. America, and the west in general seem to have an aversion to instant.

    It's all you can get at my Grandmother's house, so when I went there for Christmas I took my own.

    I was told drink less or lose weight, I lost weight.

    Just had four shots myself and am looking at the machine that keeps calling my name.

    Long night, we're dog sitting for my grandmother and the dog wakes up barking every couple of hours.

    It's 1115 right now here in Maine!!! I'm on my third cup!!!

    We just bought a Cuisinart single brew keurig system.. It uses the K-cups.. These single serve cups are very expensive!!! I use the reusable filter full of foldgers when I can, much cheaper, but not as quick..
    But I'm in no hurry, I'll get my next cup ready while I enjoy this one!!!:D

    Do you like the Kcup? I've heard good and bad things about taste.

    I tried one once, I was impartial.

    Definately not worth the price of the K-cups!!

    If I had it to do over again, I would get another Hamilton Beach 'single serve' 12 cup coffee maker.. Our last one lasted 5 years, a seal went and it started leaking.. I probably could've fixed it, but figured it was time for a new one..

    I do like the hot water for tea feature on the single brew!! I drink tea at night..

    I'm not a coffee drinker,..... I'm a guzzler. I drink coffee all day long (10-12 hour work days) and till I go to bed. Got one with me right now. I've tried the kcups but too expensive for the amount I drink. I brew 12 cups at a time and rarely throw any out.

    Yep, I like coffee.

    When buying machines I look for simplicity. Basically an on button of some sort and not much else.

    Some drips will get a little hot a scorch coffee with their plates. All you have to do is add a little water to the pot before you brew (If I'm making eight cups I put seven in the reservoir and keep one in the pot) and it keeps it tasting like it ought to.

    I guzzle too. Gets it in my blood a little quicker.

    I can't drink up till I go to bed, I stop at five and give my body enough time to get it all out.

    I don't feel alive without the stuff.

    Long morning.

    One of those days without coffee I just would have crawled back into bed.
