    Where Do You Get Your Morning Coffee?

    If you drink coffee.... where do you normally get your 1st cup?

    I drink about one cup of coffee a year. Usually with desert after a big dinner.

    Soda? Different story. 2 or 3 a day usually.

    But that coffee made from beans plucked from goat crap? That stuff rules.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Well, not exactly "free stuff at work", since I own the business, so I guess I'm paying for everybody!

    I drink two big cups first thing in the morning at home (while reading Redszone ). I love coffee! I need it as soon as I wake up.

    I've pretty much cut all caffeine out of my diet due to men's health reasons. I don't drink pop, and have a cup of coffee just prior to going into work (3rd shift). It's usually either Folgers or Maxwell House (those individual bag you brew).

    I drink lots more water anymore.

    But I do like coffee. It just doesn't like me anymore.

    I can't get coffee at the mini gas marts anymore (Starvin Marvins, Gas America, etc). Too darn strong. Really screws up my stomach.

    The most rot gut coffee I ever drank - I call it the "Mail Pouch" of coffees - was Chase & Sanborn. Talk about wiring out one's stomach.

    I took one sip of coffee in 1979. It was on a a first date with a guy I should have never gone out on a second date. The coffee was terrible and as it turned out, so was he.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    I can't drink coffee on an empty stomach anymore, precisely for that reason. I kept noticing that I was feeling pretty crummy on the mornings I had my coffee before breakfast...so I cut that out, and things have settled down.

    Still drink it, though. Right now I've got a couple of bags of whole bean coffee in my cupboard--the Whole Foods store brand, and some Italian roast thing.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Typically I make my first cup at home (Old City Coffee + French Press = happy me). However, in the afternoon I do usually have to go to the dreaded Starbucks.

    One 24 oz. cup of Speedway "Premium Blend" each and every morning.

    Keep adding sugar and vanilla creamer until the stirring stick stands up by itself.

    Good stuff.

    One 20 oz. Speedway Colombian each morning for me. Four sweet-and-Lows and three pre-packaged half-and-halfs. Buy 6 cups and I get the 7th cup free with the convenient (stores of Speedway...) Speedy Rewards Card.

    BTW sugar ruins coffee IMO, it's not suppose to be sweet. Nor taste like ice cream, it's suppose to be thick, bitter and smack you in the head like like a hook in a Pixies tune.
