    I can't stand the crazy sweet coffee drinks either. I do like a plain caf au lait or a latte, and it's pretty much the only way I drink milk so I tend to make one myself at home in the morning.

    If it's Christmas or something I may make things Irish, and I've been known to make eggnog lattes as well, but it's with real eggnog made at home and I consider it a dessert. I like iced coffee too, but I make it at home with frozen leftover coffee cubes and milk.

    I like black coffee, or coffee with a dash of semi-skimmed milk. Do prefer iced coffee though, which is a pain in these parts as most coffee places have to add syrup, creams, etc, or it's with milk in the supermarket. No thanks. In the US it's like a dream, I float from iced coffee to iced coffee. I do like the syrupy coffee drinks too, but they aren't coffee to me, they are desserts.

    I would kill for an espresso martini right now.

    I gave up on fancy coffee drinks when they got to $4 and up. Now it's plain house coffee with room for cream-gave up sugar decades ago. And if you buy Starbucks ground coffee in the grocery store the empty bag is good at any Starbucks for a free 12 ounce cup of coffee. About once every couple of years we split a coffee milkshake (with real ice cream) in a town about 30 miles away when we're in the area.
    I'll likely end up drinking hot water the way the prices keep going up.

    I never saw this thread. All this hate for flavored coffee! I have a pretty cool coffeemaker that brews a single cup & grinds the beans each time. But thennnn I add a couple spoonfuls of some kinda flavored creamer like vanilla or caramel or whatever. There is plenty sugar in that stuff so no need to add more. I wish I drank my coffee black, but just can't do it, not there yet. I do starbucks maybe 6 times a year, like a mocha or something, but it's a treat, not a drink per se. A treat that makes me very alert and busy.

    Oh. I'll tell you people what's good in coffee. RumChata. We drank the hell out of that during the holidays.

    My big poodle likes coffee,but only the way my mother drank it. I put cream in mine. He never bothers it. My husband black,never touched it. Mother liked hers black but with two sugars. The minute she put her cup down that dog was hell bent on drinking it. Well,he is totally a French poodle and very firm on his likes.

    I gave up the mocha frappucinos when I saw the calorie content. Starbucks' regular coffee has a bitter taste to it. I just go to Dunkin or use my own in my Keurig. And diner coffee is the best. And NO SUGAR! Splenda or Stevia.

    Dry?
    I'm picturing a barista giving a customer a coffee bean to suck on.
    Someone tell me what is the difference between wet and dry coffee?

    the difference is the ratio of steamed vs. frothed milk.
    a classic capuccino is 1/3 steamed milk, 1/3 espresso, 1/3 frothed milk. the wet has more steamed than frothed. dry is the opposite.

    i'm a fan of the flat white. i discovered them through a kiwi ex bf and i've found a few places in ny that have them. it's like the really frothy bastard child of a latte, a capuccino and a cortado. coffee perfection.

    I love a good dry cappuccino. I also love a breve. Steamed half and half with espresso.

    Okay... I think I'm getting it. I'm learning! I guess I could say I sometimes like mine... dry.
    But.... where in all the lingo is the plain ol' coffee with cream and sugar (what I really like)? or black coffee?



    I'm so glad I never applied to work @ Starbucks. This shyt would irritate the hell out of me. I would end up giving the customers a cup and tell them to brew their own lol.

    Uh, late to the thread, but add me to those who hate flavored coffee. Black all the way here. In copious amounts. Never with sweetener or milk. If I they screw it up (and seriously, it happens more often than seems logical) or I accidentally sip the hubs, my whole face pinches tight and I swear I feel my stomach turn before I even swallow.

    Mr. Manning swears I don't bleed blood, but Colombian dark roast. And I can't do the ice caps and venti fraps or whatever. I don't care how hot it is. Nothing stops me. In the summers, I just switch to booze at midday. It's all a means to a cigarette anyway.

    I can't do black coffee, never could. But I can't do sugar in my coffee either. It's disgusting! No matter how much you stir it, it never quite dissolves and the last few swallows are beyond sickening. I'd rather add just a tot of sugarfree Torani syrup--usually French vanilla, that's all the flavoring I can stand in coffee. Either that or a dab of half and half and yup Bitter, stevia or Splenda.

    It has to be good coffee, too. None of this Folgers shit. I love Peets, especially now they've decided that okay, not everyone likes their coffee so dark roasted it tastes burnt.

    Espresso drinks, mmmm. A traditional mocha isn't heresy, but I prefer a cappucino with cinnamon.

    Best of all though...Turkish coffee. Rar!!!

    So good to know. Next time I go to the states I know I need to order a dry one.
