I can't reveal the thresholds for new cups of coffee ..

 

I'm all growed up: Latte Macchiato! I wasn't even sure there was a level beyond macchiato.

 

Yes, any form of validation during the waitout period has me like

I hate mochas, and I feel like I have been a mocha forever. I'm posting randomly now trying to get past mocha. ANYTHING but mocha, seriously! :-P

No, mochas are the absolute best! :D

nope - large, black, hot, no milk no sugar, no whipped cream, just coffee flavored coffee.

 

(a double shot of bourbon is acceptable to add to the coffee once in a while however)

I want to be caffeinated!

Me too! How many posts does it take? Now I'm anticipating about results coming out AND about becoming caffeinated! Always a reason to be anxious I guess! :-)

 You need to hit 30 posts to be "caffeinated" and then I think "Espresso Shot" kicks in at 60 posts.

Coffee, no matter the brand, should not be bitter.  If it is, something is wrong with the brewing process.

I get the sense that this is more of a fact than an opinion, but taken as both -- I agree.

 

Bitter is best.

I'm making my 1000th post here in hopes that I will, in fact, performatively become a Cup O' Joe! 

 

Edit: it worked!

I kinda wish there was a tea option... Don't drink coffee. But my blackberry sage, black rose, earl grey. and chai probably makes up most of my bloodstream!

I agree with you _kita.  I'm a tea drinker too.  I could totally get behind starting as an "Herbal" and working up to "Black Tea".  Maybe throw in some white, oolong, green tea too.  Chai tea latte please!

Try bourbon cream in your coffee. It's like Baileys, but just bourbon, cream, and sugar.

I do love coffee, but I find as I get older I can't have as much of it and I'm really enjoying tea. It must be a sign I'm getting older. lol

What's everyone's favorite coffee or tea to drink while studying for classes?

Just regular black coffee for me - pretty boring, right? :lol:
