I have more of a preference for coffee than tea so I feel the need to start a coffee thread rather than post on the tea thread. Drink a bit too much of it…roughly 5 or 6 cups a day. My brother invested in a mini coffee machine from Starbucks at christmas…fantastic, nicest coffee iv had in my life, I was like a insomniac I drank so much. O Briens black coffee is absolute muck…undrinkable for me. I was at this marketing thing up in UCD last year where Brody Sweeney was givin a talk, he was talkin about Starbucks and said ‘Starbucks has a excellent marketing team in the way so many people buy their coffee even though its horrible’ someone raised their hand and shot back ‘O Briens must have a even better marketing team if there able to sell even worse coffee’ Just thought id share that little anecdote.
Have 1 cup of day between 10am and 11am. More of a tea person but the tea here is absolutely shite. Like mine with milk and 1 sugar. No prefernce for flavours etc as I couldn’t tell one from the other but Maxwell house has always been the “full solid finest”
Can’t tell between them either. The gayest coffee I ever had was something calle a ‘vanilla latte’ or something along those lines. It was actually lovely but cost about three quid so as the fella said fuck that.
I have around 4-5 cappuccinos a week. 2 or 3 after lunch during the week and another on Saturdays and Sundays when I take a stroll out to get my breakfast/lunch. There might well be an element of funboyism to drinking cappuccino. I have a cup of coffee fairly irregularly - last one I recall was Tuesday morning.
I think the general rule in Italy is that it is ok to drink cappaucino once it’s prior to 10 am, any later than that is a sin.
There’s a machine at work that makes savage freshly ground coffee. Have one first thing in the morning, another mid morning and then one about 3 to get me through the last few hours, black one sugar.
Wouldn’t be a big fan of instant, i’ll drink it if I’m stuck but I’d put a drop of milk in it.
What do ye think of o briens coffee? absolute tripe i cant drink it. Never got into latte and cappacinos im what they call lactose intollerant so black coffee is my caffine fix, and about 3 cans of red bull:)
