I have been known to be hooked on Tim Hortons coffee. On occassion, I will drink a Starbucks, but I tend to find their blend a bit more bitter and a lot more pricey. Remember those days of Maxwell House (or other brand) Instant Coffee? I used to have to have at least one cup of coffee every morning to get me going, but over the last few years have cut that out of my daily routine. I only drink it now and then for pure pleasure, when the craving hits. Curious what kind of coffe other people are 'hooked' on, and how much of it do you drink? How do you like it prepared? I am a double cream, double sugar person!

mmmmm, coffee!! at home, I just drink mine with a little bit of sugar in it, or sometimes just black. It's plain Folger's coffee and it's very good! However starbucks specialty coffees are very good! I love lattes and right now i reccommend the holiday coffees to you all! Even if you don't like coffee, you will like these. My favorite is the peppermint mocha, my mom's is the eggnog latte, and my best friend's is the gingerbread latte! They all rule!!!!!!!

Oh my gosh, the holiday coffees do sound delish! I haven't been to Starbucks in forever, so I had no idea they had the specialty coffees out. Maybe I will try the peppermint mocha!

We're always looking for new flavors to add to our lattes, but meat? When a chef from Rippe's Steakhouse in Seattle had the bright idea to coat filet mignon with spent espresso grounds from the local coffee house, she had no idea it would become such a phenomenon. Said to have a mild coffee taste, this coffee covered filet will be a hit at your next barbeque!

Well, much better to flavor the meat with coffee, then to flavor the coffee with meat! LOL

I can't stand coffee. I don't like it at all. I don't care what you put in it, I can't stand it. I love the smell though.... oh it smells pretty.

Yes, the smell! Especially when coffee is freshly ground, that is the best smell!

He he! Honestly, its just that Tim Horton is a Canadian phenomenon and Starbucks an American. My favorite...Mocha Grande at Starbucks with lot of whipped cream! Sometimes, I substitute it with irish cream flavor!

Read this. A post I made earlier and a discussion I started was in error about Starbucks. My deepest apologies for not checking earlier. Usually the friend who sent it to me checks things. The link is http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/starbucks.asp

I like the very light taste of coffee. If it gets too strong i puke. If i drink coffee its definitely going to be with lots of cream and lots of sugar. I usually avoid drinking coffe though. Its not good for your health. Coffee absorbs mositure from your body. It dehydrates you. Coffee drinkers generally have constipation because their system is dried out. my grandfather was hooked to coffee and he had serious trouble of constipation. He had an extremely dry skin..which was partly genetic but still Think about it and dont get addicted to it. Its BAD FOR YOU in the long run.

I love Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino. It is just so cool, creamy and sweet. I reward myself with one every Wednesday when I go grocery shopping at the Dominick's that has a Starbucks. I get the cold one because it gets too warm walking around inside for the hot one. I also like the Pommegrante Frappuccino. When my friend and I are going to be walking around outside, we get the Peppermint Mocha Cappuccino. At the mall, we get Gloria Jean's. Again, the cold one because it is much to hot at the mall for a hot drink. Every once in a while, we may go to Caribou Coffee instead.

coffee - coffee
I like Tim Horton's English Toffee, I love almost all the specialty drinks served by Caribou Coffee, Gloria Jeans, and The Coffee Bean. I do NOT go out of my way for Starbucks. Bleck! I don't know why people pay money to buy their Joe there.

I am not really a fan of coffe I am more of a tea person, and not any kind of tea mind you, my favourite is always green tea any time. But when I do take the occasional coffe it is usually a Mocha Latte from Starbucks. Cant explain why but I just like Starbucks more than any other cafe.
