I'd do the K-cup thing, but I drink about an 8-10 cup pot of coffee every morning and the K-cup just wouldn't be cost-effective. I've become slightly addicted to the Starbuck's Tall Skinny Peppermint Mocha, but I can't drink more than one every few days or so. I'd rather have plain, black coffee with nothing sweet in it. Afternoons, I try to just drink green tea. The good news is that I've cut way back on the Diet Cokes! ;)

Love a few cups of black coffee every morning. My dad and uncle like to drink it in the afternoon as well. I never drink it after lunch.

I have now gone 2 weeks without a cup of coffee during the week. Trying to kick the habit during the week, I have to have sugar in mine and it's just added sugar that I'm trying to cut out. I have still had 2 cups on Sunday though.

Can't do it.....I've tried. I don't get people that drink coffee or tea with nothing in it.

I drink tea with nothing in it. It tastes like tea, and it's delicious.

Sweet tea tastes like sugar water to me.

Most places go way overboard with the sugar in their sweet tea.

I can agree with you there. I usually go for the 3/4 sweet 1/4 unsweet mix.

I started bringing a big thermos of coffee to work every morning because:

1. Only one other person in the office besides me (Bossy Mexican) drinks coffee.
2. Bossy Mexican likes her coffee so weak that it barely merits being called coffee. I explained that we can brew coffee that is a little stronger and she can put water in it if she wants it less strong, but that was a nonstarter.
3. Bossy Mexican is more or less raising her deadbeat son's five kids and she just can't afford to spend $5 to buy a month's worth of coffee for us, so that always fell to me.
4. Bossy Mexican always plays the little trick where she will leave like 2 milliliters of coffee in the bottom of the pot and then say she didn't brew a new pot because there was still some left.

That is fucking bullshit, so Bossy Mexican can handle her own coffee scene.

My ancient Mr. Coffee at home crapped out, so I went to the place across the street to buy a cup of coffee pretty much every day for the last month or so. I conducted a breakeven analysis and determined that I could substantially upgrade from the $15 Mr. Coffee and come out ahead after about a month when compared to going across the street to buy coffee every day. I picked up a Bonavita coffee maker and a burr grinder. The coffee is just as good as what you can get at your coffee purveyor of choice and you can get it without the heavily tattooed English major barista at Starbucks scowling at you because you do not tip her for completing the herculean task of pouring something in a cup. If you require caffeine in large doses to get through the morning, I highly recommend it.

Two points:

1. I don't think I've ever tipped anyone at Starbucks for pouring me a "large" PIke place. I purposefully always order a "large" vs. the bullshit tall/grande/venti. I don't think I've ever gotten the scowl but I didn't know to look for it. I'll pay attention next time

2. Do you also go fishing at 5AM before you head to work old man? I've never seen anyone under 75 carry one of those bad boys. I pretty much drink coffee from 8am to noon everyday but I always have to head to the cafeteria for my 3rd cup. Yes, it's way overpriced but I don't have to carry one of those bad boys to work either. In my mind, the coffee Thermos is to 75 year olds what the lunch box is to the 7.5 year old.

:D :D :D

My dad carried a thermos of Folgers everyday. I think it was a green Stanley thermos.

Ha. If you have a better and more cost effective solution, I'm all ears jackass. :D

When I graduated from college, one of my older relatives got me a stainless steel coffee thermos and a briefcase. Never used the briefcase, but wore out that thermos.

Have officially gone black coffee now. We'll see if the once you go black you never go back thing holds true here.

I've had a Keurig for several years now (no real complaints), but may consider going to an old school percolator. Have had several friends swear by them as making a much better cup of coffee than other means, and that got me reminiscing about how much I enjoyed them at my grandparents' home back in the day.

I mean seriously... unless you are going to work on the car line in Detroit, the steel mill in Pittsburgh, going fishing at 5 am or born before 1960 then you don't quailify to carry a thermos of coffee.
