Black is the way to go haha. Thats how i roll too, but yeah, sometimes i like to dress it up. I think we are on the same page there.
I use to into coffee shops more often, mostly for the atmosphere, but the prices are insane.
We have a good selection around here, though its hare to find whole-bean at the bigger markets, i need to go to the smaller hipster markets for that haha. I think getting whole-bean is cheaper in the long run tbh, because you get a lot out of a grind, and, with the added bonus of pure freshness.
I've been thinking about getting a manual espresso press, they can be fairly cheap compared to the steam driven ones, still a bit pricey though, and really, its just a smaller cup of coffee haha. But, lattes are good and i want to be able to make one on demand.
I've done a lot of reading on caffeine, as i do with all my drugs, and the general consensus seems to be that when taken natrually in black coffee or tea, its pretty low risk - high reward for you. Even the AHA recommends it. But yeah, everyone reacts different and its good to take a break from everything once in a while. I tend to switch to tea for a bit when im feeling like im hoping the caffeine train a bit too much. Mostly because when i quit cold turkey, i get wicked headaches haha. >>472223>actually that reminds me mcdonalds coffee is actually decent>burger king coffee sucks
This is a very true statement. When i get mcdonalds coffee, i can get it black and enjoy it, but BK i have to get with cream and sugar to mask the rancid taste haha. >>472230
No onions and no coffee, idk man, you're missing out hard haha.
It is an acquired taste though, like scotch or whiskey. To each their own though.
