D'you know, I've never had coffee before. I wonder what about it makes people so dependent upon it. Is it necessarily more energising than caffeinated tea?


It's warm in the winter without making you sleepy like hot chocolate. And it's everywhere free of charge if you work for some companies. ^^

I'm a supertaster, which is why I hate coffee.


how odd - i never made that connection. i'm a taster (but not, i think, a supertaster) - i can handle about 1 cup straight, then i have to add milk.

also not a huge fan of really hoppy, bitter beers. now i have a reason for just going back to lagers!

and Istancow - coffee does generally have more caffeine than tea. have a table:
Coffee
Type of coffee Size* Caffeine✝

Brewed 8 oz. (237 mL) 95-200 mg
Brewed, decaffeinated 8 oz. (237 mL) 2-12 mg
Brewed, single-serve varieties 8 oz. (237 mL) 75-150 mg
Brewed, single-serve varieties, decaffeniated 8 oz. (237 mL) 2-4 mg
Espresso, restaurant-style 1 oz. (30 mL) 47-75 mg
Espresso, restaurant-style, decaffeinated 1 oz. (30 mL) 0-15 mg
Instant 8 oz. (237 mL) 27-173 mg
Instant, decaffeinated 8 oz. (237 mL) 2-12 mg
Specialty drink (latte or mocha) 8 oz. (237 mL) 63-175 mg

Tea
Type of tea Size* Caffeine✝

Brewed tea
Black tea 8 oz. (237 mL) 14-70 mg
Black tea, decaffeinated 8 oz. (237 mL) 0-12 mg
Green tea 8 oz. (237 mL) 24-45 mg
Iced tea
Instant, prepared with water 8 oz. (237 mL) 11-47 mg
Ready-to-drink, bottled 8 oz. (237 mL) 5-40 mg

*Sizes are listed in fluid ounces (oz.) and milliliters (mL).

✝Caffeine is listed in milligrams (mg).


(sorry, it didn't come out real pretty - but you get the idea)

I'm too stubborn to learn to drink coffee - I find it's a waste of time to cringe through the coffee flavor albeit milked and sugared down than to just get a cup of tea.

I like this thread though. Very informative.

I think the very first coffee thing I had that made me think "WAIT A MINUTE, this might be worth something" was coffee flavored chocolate.

Basically it was just all down hill from there.

*stares mournfully at empty coffee cup* I try not to drink it in the afternoons/evenings even though I'd drink it all the time if I could.

Sometimes, when I've told people I don't care for coffee and never learned to drink it, they say, "You have to put in a lot of milk and sugar until you get used to it."

To which I reply, "No. No I don't. I don't have to do any such thing. There is no law in the land saying that I must."

To which they say, ".... oh. Yeah, I guess."

(Tiramisu, however, with just that light hint of coffee bitterness, is divine.)

It always bugs me when people get pushy about things they like and I don't.

I get told I 'just need to give it more of a chance' after I explain why I don't really want to watch a show because I heard it's really violent, full of rape, or otherwise about things I have zero interest in getting invested in.

My reaction is much the same.

I can respect that some people are that way about foodstuffs (hell, I can get stubborn about some foods too) so I try not to be too much of an ass when they tell me they don't like stuff.

I never understood people saying that coffee is an acquired taste....force yourself to drink it enough and you'll like it.

Why force yourself to drink something you don't like? Especially when it's not offering any health benefits. It's not like forcing yourself to eat vegetables, at least they're going do help your body.

Funniest, though, are the people who claim to 'love' coffee, then add a bunch of cream & sugar. Um, if you're adding that much, I don't think it's the coffee you love.

So, back on topic, do you suppose it's one of Abby's duties to make coffee?

*squints*

This is great because I literally just said that I love coffee with sugar and cream that is a taste I acquired over time and you're talking around me like I'm some hysterical anomaly.

Do I respond defensively with a list of all the sugary creamy drinks I don't love nearly as much as my morning coffee or do I just heap verbal abuse?

I suppose I do try to avoid verbal abuse. I guess I'll have to content myself with pointing out your shitty behavior.

I've noticed that when I ask, "Is the movie violent? Is it something I'd be all right watching?" and they reply, "Oh, it's not that bad," it always is, and I always end up walking out furious.

These days there are so many online reviews and previews that I can usually find out for myself if it's going to be something triggering. And these days I spend my time with people who say, "Okay," when I say "Not my kind of film." Life is too short to waste listening to the other sort.

Since, on the 9th, Abby said, "Oh no. I didn't make the coffee..." and fretted about bad marks, and in this strip Blue is shouting for her coffee, I'm going to hazard a "yes" on that.

That's what underlings are for, after all, when you're a top executive.

As far as I know, it's because bitterness is highlighted for supertasters. (Which is also why supertasters are apparently known for not liking greens.)

If I had an underling this would be their only job. Coffee, whenever I wanted it.

Also maybe carrying snacks.

Ah, coffee. What a godsend. More potent than tea, but it goes so well with sweet bread. I'm currently experimenting with cold-brew, and I like its bite. Quite good taken in small doses, with a splash of milk and a pinch of sugar. Mmm.

I'm a fan of coffee, with a bit of sweetener and creamer. Being the fine parent that I am my toddler has apparently developed a taste for it too Confused

Not a beer person very much at all, but if you try to take my coffee... it won't be pretty.
