    The world’s favourite mind altering drug.Safaried to the African bush last week and, at his son’s suggestion, brought instant coffee as a gift for my Masai Laigwanan (chief) host.

    When I grew up, coffee was considered an “adult” drink. Not sure why, just was.

    I don’t especially like the taste of coffee, but I had migraines for 35 years and would never go without a cup for the caffeine in the morning.

    I tried a little bit of my mom’s coffee (milk and sugar) when I was 6. It tasted awful, and I’ve never had any since then.

    Coffee doesn’t keep me awake, but tea will keep me from sleeping.

    Had a bad experience with coffee when I was a kid. Have stayed with tea since. And Diet Coke, lots of Diet Coke.

    My $.02: I always loved the smell of coffee, never liked the taste. Realized it was because Mom & Dad just drank Folger’s. I have ONE cup per day, to start the morning – Sumatran or other dark roast, with some chocolate creamer. YUM.

    I can understand not liking tea if all you have is tea bag tea. A good loose tea, if you can get it, is one of the great delights of the world. We drink a combination of China Yunan and Russian Caravan.

    I can’t stand either one. I’ve tried a few but they all seem like swamp water to me. I come very close to being physically ill with just a sip of any tea I’ve ever tried.

    They do have coffee now in “tea” bags. Awful stuff, though… tastes like instant coffee. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++I like coffee black and strong, and even though it is pricier than I would like, I do like the stronger varieties at Starbucks and other venues of their ilk. I also like tea, plain and strong as well. I do especially like the richer flavor found in most loose teas, and if I use a tea bag, I often double up the tea bags. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Richard mentions “A History of the World in 6 Glasses” (about beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola) and I also recommend it. It is wonderful. I happen to relish all SIX of those beverages. Each is a delight in its own fashion. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Last comment for now…. interestingly, for my own palate and tastes… I almost never drink a beverage hot (not coffee, nor tea), and prefer almost every beverage over ice or at least cold. Even from when I was just a tiny kid, I disliked warm beverages (even hot chocolate). Iced coffee and iced tea are wonderful! As of course are beer, wine, spirits, and cola.

    I don’t particularly like the taste of coffee, so I stopped drinking it back in the 80’s. I love tea, but it is getting hard to find the loose teas. My favorite is Earl Grey.

    As a cancer fighter, I drink both coffee and green tea, both of them being strong weapons against leukemia.

    Coffee skipped a generation in our family. My parents and my wife’s parents all drank coffee prodigiously. Both our kids drink coffee. We never touch the stuff. yech!

    I’ve never acquired the taste for coffee. I like tea on occasion, but it’s rare.

    Finally the tea lobby is heard. I’ll enjoy a nice cuppa in the morning (splash of milk, no sugar). Not that much of a snob to boycott teabags, but I will definitely say NO to those fru-fru faux “teas” that have unpalatable “mint” or “herb” or other such evilness. In the afternoon, I switch to iced tea. Again – none of this powdered swill. Again, no sugar – just plain tea with plenty of ice.

    A friend of mine was very proud of the fact that, till the day he died, he had never had even one cup of coffee. Made his life miserable during WWII, as all the Americans had to drink in the field was coffee. When he got detached to a British unit, he thought he was in heaven — tea drinkers! Yeah, well… Turns out that (1) the Brits were still going Victorian in the field, taking their china tea services with them, and (2) what they were serving the Brits for tea was some thick black sludge about the consistency (and probably flavor) of crude oil. The only way he could tolerate it was to fill that little depression in the bottom of the china cup with a layer of sludge and cut the rest of the cup with hot water.

    There really are not people who eat baker’s chocolate alone. So, there is a difference in your comparison about black versus sweetened coffee. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++That said, I never say anything negative about folks who put additives in their coffee (milk, sugar, cream, etc). It is their choice to enjoy coffee however they wish. The same is true for tea as well. For me, I personally DO NOT like milk/sugar in my tea or in my coffee. So I drink both “straight”.

    I still remember in the movie “Airplane”, the little 10 year old kids talking about coffee…

    Boy: Excuse me, I happened to be passing, and I thought you might like some coffee.

    Girl: Oh, that’s very nice of you, thank you.

    Boy: Cream?

    Girl: No thank you, I take it black, like my men.

    And it was filmed here in Minneapolis!
