For whatever reason, I can't really stomach it, but I like iced mocha just fine.

My uncle used to force me to drink iced dunkin donuts coffee every morning. Caused stomach problems and I was then locked in the back of a truck.

golly him, and golly dunkin donuts. I never even got to have any donuts because they are "for fatasses".

in our city center there is a coffee shop, The Coffee Club which if you catch it right you can sit and have an excellent coffee and smell the beans roasting.
A true coffee lover owns it and produces my Fav mix

I'm a coffee drinker, it's a "must have" for me. I usually drink 3 cups/day. I make my own coffee at home. I prefer fresh beans over ground coffee, but my Gind'n'Brew coffee maker died, so I'm back to buying Dark Roast ground coffee. I refuse to enroll into the coffee culture that lines up out the doors at Starbucks, or causes traffic problems at the drive-thru's.

Coffee in the islands is generally terrible, but most have elaborate espresso machines which I prefer over the nasty attempt at coffee they offer. Coffee was very good in Costa Rica though, we even brought some back with us.

I like it very strong.  But normally drink tea in the morning.  Today I'm having coffee which turned out to be disappointingly weak.

I'll use French press, Melitta cone, espresso machine, depending on my mood.  Usually it's the Melitta cone because it's fast and easy to clean up.

When I'm out I drink a white chocolate mocha (more of a pudding than a coffee). At home I drink the Azeera instants in the morning but I also have a De'Longhi coffee machine that I use when I have the time. I tend to use a vanilla coffee that I buy in St Lucia.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

The grounds are good for fertilizing the garden.  I don't mind the fiddly business.  I did have good instant iced coffee in Greece.  It was a really hot summer and I think it was Nestle.  Hit the spot.

We have Keurigs at my workplace, but never really got into the fancy flavors. I noticed in Home Depot the other day a new model Samsung fridge that had a Keurig built in, right below the huge touch screen display.
