I'm substituting tea for coffee most days of the week for temporary health reasons. (This morning I'm having cardamom/black tea with some green tea mixed in.)

Do not want flavouring in my coffee. Strong, black and unsweetened is how I like it. Occasionally I will add a crumbled cinnamon stick, but no syrupy nonsense. I do have milky flavoured drinks sometimes (with or without coffee), but I don't really count those as 'coffee'.

Both tea and coffee are delicious <3 Good luck with the substituting!

I drank plain coffee (as opposed to Frappucinos) for the first time this spring at an evening temp job, mostly because the work was monotonous and getting up to get coffee gave me something to do. Of course, it didn't take very many cups before I decided it was, in fact, much better with a bunch of creamers and sugar packets dumped in (say...3 apiece). The job ended and I haven't had any since.

That's kinda funny... sorry. xD

Anyway, when I said "plain coffee" I meant coffee with sugar and creamer- just no extra flavors. ;)

I also prefer my coffee black, unsweetened. It doesn't wake me up or put me to sleep, but it does make me hella-jittery and I do not sleep as deeply if I have been drinking it.

I have tea daily, often multiple times a day.

As for creamers, I don't use any of them at all- I use milk and raw sugar (or just milk).

...Cafe Latte creamer? That... makes no sense, considering a cafe latte is just coffee with milk... am I missing something here?

Anyway. I'm so sick to death of coffee from my one jub I basically never drink it (tea for me, please). When I do, I prefer it light and sweet.

Ikr... xD But there's a CoffeeMate flavored creamer called 'Cafe Latte' o.o

I love both coffee AND tea! :)

I know, right?! But there's a CoffeeMate flavor called that. o.o

I adore chai lattes and thai iced tea, but I have yet to develop a taste for coffee.

Hazelnut makes everything better. Okay so I don't really want hazelnut-flavored curry, but it's still an awesome nut!

I get a decaf soy latte at Starbucks every now and then--sometimes as much as once a week, rarely more than that. Sometimes I go months without one.

I am not a coffee drinker and never have been, but my daughter introduced me to the soy lattes a few years ago and they hardly taste like coffee to me. I can handle the small amount of caffeine that might be in a decaf, but I would never drink regular coffee (or tea). If I go to Starbuck's or another coffee shop, it's usually on the way home in the late afternoon or early evening. I've had one in the morning maybe once or twice.

I said I liked the "cafe latte" creamer, but I doubt I've ever had it, actually, I was thinking more of the flavor of my soy latte that I get at Starbucks. I've tried a couple of the soy creamers and made regular coffee at home to put them in, and they were all disgusting--the coffee, the creamers, the whole deal. I just don't like coffee at all.

Thanks for sharing! My entire family loves coffee- we all started drinking form the time we were babies(yes, coffee in baby bottles) and now we can't live without it. XD When I make a cup of coffee, I always have to make one for my eight year old sister too. :)

My parents were very heavy coffee drinkers. I don't know why I never picked it up. While he was away at college, my son became a coffee drinker, so maybe it skipped a generation. :)

I like to have coffee at about 11am.

I'm weird and only ever drink coffee late at night. There's a 24 hour coffee shop here and my friends and I meet there late at night (usually around midnight) to vent. It's always surprisingly busy!
25th-Oct-2011 11:12 am (UTC)
Aww...that sounds like a nice tradition. x)

I rarely have coffee. The times I do, it's usually decaf. Caffeinated coffee gives me the caffeine shakes. I made the mistake of getting some Starbuck's coffee once, because I needed something hot, and I thought I was dying or having some kind of hypoglycemic fit or something. I later read that even the *small* Starbuck's coffees have more caffeine than large cans of energy drinks.

Wow, it's crazy how some people are affected like that and others not. I'm sure a multitude of factors contribute though. :P
25th-Oct-2011 09:07 pm (UTC)
There was a time, long ago, when even a large Starbuck's coffee would not have affected me at all, I was so addicted to caffeine. It was a time when I was using caffeine pills to stay awake for my job, getting migraines, and taking migraine medicine with caffeine in it, not knowing until later that the excessive caffeine was *causing* the migraines. Or at least, making them more frequent than they normally would be. I had to swear off caffeine completely for a year or so, then slowly wean my way back onto it, but I try to avoid anything more caffeinated than tea. (And heck, the iced tea I make is half-caff.)

Hmm, sounds like me with the headaches... X__X I get them frequently, and I just end up taking tylenol with my coffee. T__T
25th-Oct-2011 09:11 pm (UTC) - PS
The worst part of trying to stay awake using caffeine is that caffeine has NEVER had a waking-up effect on me. But I just kept thinking, "Well maybe I haven't had enough to get that effect." But it just never happened. Even when I get the caffeine jitters, I've been known to almost nod off.

One good thing about that, though, is I can have as much damn caffeine as I want before bed, and it won't be a problem for getting to sleep.

Thank you for sharing. (: For me, it's always different. It often does nothing though!

I can't see it, but if that anonymous "PS" shows up, that was me. Didn't realize I wasn't signed in.

coffee is only coffee if it is just plain coffee not any kind of fancy flavours in it . I havent seen anybody personally yet who drinks flavoured coffee, instant coffee is just okay, although preferable it filter coffee.
12th-Oct-2011 07:27 pm (UTC)
In my part of Europe we hardly have flavoured coffee, but most places have variations such as latte, cortado, mocca, cappucino and so on. So going to Northern America and seeing raspberry coffe and hazelnut coffe felt very exotic for me.

Oooh, interesting! Thank you for sharing! XD
