    Coffee tastes disgusting and has bad effects on me so none.

    If I am using it as a tool for others then I tend to feed them rocket fuel.

    I generally think "speciality coffee" is way too sweet, and often times taste too little coffee. I do however try some of the seasonal flavors over at Starbucks whenever I'm near one because it's fun (and It doesn't happen often).
    Otherwise, if I feel like having a flavored one, I usually go for a Latte with either almond or hazelnut syrup.

    Otherwise it's all Regular coffee, Espresso or Cappuccino for me :3

    I'm on the opposite side of the spectrum. I drink coffee only because I like the flavor, not because of the caffeine.

    You aint no real adult :angry:

    This much there is ample evidence for.

    However the only functional effect coffee seems to have is to wake people up. I am one of those horrible people that can wake up from as much or as little sleep as I like and walk out the door 30 seconds later just fine. Similarly if I am tired I can usually push crashing out for a week, not that I have to though as I have a schedule which permits an afternoon or evening kip if I am so inclined. Equally caffeine has rather severe effects on me, and for all your distrust of me owing to my dislike of coffee I imagine it would be worse were I to profess a love of decaf.

    To round it off though I should also say I dislike tea almost as much and to do that as someone that at least pretends to be from the UK... I may have to leave under the cover of darkness this evening having now said such a thing.

    I love full bodied coffee.
    I do not have a preference, but it has to taste strong! :D

    I drink coffee for my headaches. It does nothing for me in terms of caffeine. Specialty coffee is hit and miss. It definitely depends on who makes it. However, I love caramel macchiatos.

    This is the sort of place I would spend a lot on blends.

    I usually just make a latte since I'm plain as hell-
    I tend to drink coffee for the flavour and take mine without sugar but I add hazelnut syrup if I'm in the mood for something sweeter

    It's definitely worth it--you can easily taste the difference between Folgers and organic coffees. I also like to use RAW sugar and organic milk or hemp milk.

    I don't care much for specialty coffees. Add a bit of milk and sugar and I'm set tbh.

    What exactly is a "speciality" coffee? If it means Starbucks then none, they got driven out of Australia because our tastes are too demanding for that sort of stuff hehehe
    If you just mean what kind of beans, there's a local roaster in a country town nearby that some cafés around here use, called Six8. Their beans are pretty good. I am not sure on the origin, I think it's Thailand.

    I'm not a coffee purist by any means, I take mine with tons of milk and/or sugar, but I can't stand any added flavors in coffee, and all those coffee flavoring syrups taste weird to me. They're fine on their own, but for some reason when you put them in coffee the combo feels a bit off. Weird.

    Plain coffee, milk coffee and chocolate cappuccino (Chococcino) are my favorites.
    But there's a lot more that I like too. Dad has one of those coffee machines from Nestlé on his office, it's cool to play around with.
    Also, American coffee is just WEAK. Come to Brazil and taste real coffee :P

    I'm definitely not your stereotypical "mamma mia" Italian kind of guy who constantly brags about Italian cuisine, how to cook properly and stuff (I love eating foreign food!) but if there's one thing that I cannot stand is Starbucks coffee. I like caffè ristretto in a tiny cup, not in a giant cardboard one.

    When it comes to flavour, anything that's strong will do for me - but sometimes I also like to drink ginseng coffee.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
