ask me anything meme - day 20  
I love today question because I love the subject of it!
I absolutely adore coffee and I am an addict. If I don't get caffeine into my body I have to deal with headaches, but I don't care, honestly! It's not like any other addiction that hurst you and who's around you, so I'm not going to stop drinking it! Ever! (But if I have to I just have to deal with a day of headaches and that's it!)

You love coffee, but how do you like it? Black or with some fixings? orangerful

When I talk about coffee I talk about Espresso. That's the way I drink my coffee, a shot of espresso, no milk, no sugar, no extra flavor! The only other way I drink it is as a Cappuccino as in 1/3 coffee, 1/3 milk, 1/3 milk froth... So, when I am at Starbucks I either order a double (their Solo is too weak) or a tall Flat White (the closest thing they have to a Cappuccino because their Cappuccino is infact a Latte Macchiato).

I started drinking coffee when I was quite young, but I guess it's common in Italy and I've always had the same as my parents had, so that's why I like to take my Espresso that way. :) I can add some milk to my coffee, but never sugar... It tastes awful to me!

How do you guys like your coffee?

I'm not a big coffee person, but I do like Cappuccino.

Do you like Tea better? What do you usually have for breakfast???
Miss Ashley: [tea]imagine_peace on October 21st, 2016 02:55 am (UTC)

I had a cappuccino in London once that I think was more like how a cappuccino is supposed to be, but being American I was not prepared for that level of actual, proper caffeination. I was shaking for hours afterwards.

Basically, I like it to be hot chocolate with a hint of real coffee in it. I have an insufferable sweet tooth.

You're not the first person that says that to me... so weird because you have these Americano Coffee that are huge...

I know that when it comes to Espresso there is the lungo version (more water) or the ristretto one (less water) and the lungo contains more caffeine...

Weren't you weirded out in London when you saw the Starbucks menu (mainly for the sweets) was different? My first Starbucks was in London and when I got to Florida I was looking for cupcakes lol!

Hot cioccolate with coffee is good... do you like your hot chocolate to be very liquid or super dense... I like mine like hot pudding LOL

I generally order a mocha or something with caramel in it, if I'm getting coffee. :) I want to experiment and find a good instant brand soon (if there's such a thing).

Mocha was my to go coffee when I first discovered Starbucks... Mocha and lemon cake... lol what a weird pairing...

I had very bed experiences with instant coffee but I think we used Nescafé on the boat and people seemed to like it... there is also a cappuccino version... :)
Meredith: Wes - gunsxfirefly9x on October 20th, 2016 03:36 pm (UTC)
Lemon cake... *droool* I just bought a lemon yogurt, should be interesting. XD

I've had mixed experiences. I quite like a "Greenblend" one, but they don't sell the small containers any more, and there's no way we'd get through the bigger one. Nescafe is all right.

That lemon cake is so good... But 500 cal per slice! 0_____0

I don't drink a lot of coffee, but I take mine with cream and sugar :)

That's how Eric takes it :)

I hate coffee, just the smell of it alone makes me nauseous. I accidentally tasted one because the cups were mixed with my actual drink and I spent the next hour throwing up. And it was just a sip! So yeah, coffee is something I just cannot stomach at all. My sister is the one with the coffee addiction and I've seen her during withdrawals when she doesn't have her morning coffee. It is not a pretty sight. So I'm glad that I'm not addicted to the stuff.

I was, however, addicted to soda a long time ago during my teen years. I would drink several cans/bottles a day. However, when I was told how unhealthy it was for me, and I quit while I was still in high school. I went cold turkey, and haven't looked back. I even tried tasting some soda recently and it just tastes really weird. So yeah, a good choice on my part.

(Though I suspect quitting coffee is different than quitting soda, because I didn't have headaches or was irritable like those who attempt to ween themselves off of coffee.)

Luckily when I don't drink coffee I just have to deal with the headaches but never the other problems... I don't need it to wake me up or give me a boost... I sometimes drink it before bed...

The flavor is definitely not for everyone... And that's awesome if you think about it... You and your sister have a complete different relationship with it. She loves it, you hate it... And you are sisters... Humans are so cool!

I can't drink soda instead LOL. It makes me cry... I can't even drink sparkling water for the same reason xD I don't even like the taste of coke or any other thing. I'm glad I don't like it because - as you said - it's definitely not healthy... On coffee studies change ideas all the time LOL! You did a great thing stepping away from soda... I wish Eric did too, but he likes it too much... He drinks the 0 cal stuff that is even worst because of all the chemicals... :(

Black! But, I'll add some sweet cream for special occasions!
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 20th, 2016 08:45 pm (UTC)
High Five for no-sugar-in-my-coffee team :)

Do you ever put caramel or other things in it?

*high five*

No caramel, BUT... I like bulletproof coffee. Some folks think this is gross, but I love it & so do many other weirdos like me.... I like to blend a Tbsp of coconut oil and Tbsp of ghee in my coffee! Mmmmm froth!
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 23rd, 2016 03:38 pm (UTC)
Wow! that;s sound interesting... I'd like to try it!

At least once, right!

How do you guys like your coffee?

You might find this shocking, but actually I don't drink coffee at all! I'm a tea person through and through: I drink mostly green and white teas with a splash of honey in it. On the rare occasions when I drink black tea, I might add a dash of milk to my cup as well.
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 23rd, 2016 03:40 pm (UTC)
It's very interesting to me how people tend to like either coffee or the... I think I don't know anybody who likes them both! :)
orangerfulorangerful on October 22nd, 2016 01:00 am (UTC)
I tend to do a couple of spoon of sugar and some half/half because I grew up eating coffee ice cream so i think I like my coffee to taste the same LOL! So not healthy
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 23rd, 2016 03:42 pm (UTC)
You only live once :D I think there are things that are more unhealthy than that so you should be okay... Unless you drink like 20 massive cups a day! :D
