Thumbs up Can't stand it - coffee

Can't stand coffee myself, never could. Even in the Navy when I worked mid-watches and everybody else around me lived on the stuff. I was also low man on the totem pole for about six months and had to frequently make it for our shop.

Here's a tip, never make somebody who doesn't drink coffee - make the coffee.

To speed the operation, I would just open the top and dump new grounds in over the old. Only when the lid could not be closed would I dump out the old filter & grounds. :p

Thumbs up Coffee Bad

I guess I'll put my two cents in. I've never been able to drink coffee either. I've tried it a couple times (surely it must be good--everyone loves it) but with zero success. :o My preference in the morning is a tall glass of O.J. (but with no pulp--can't stand pulp!).

For a caffiene fix I usually go for Dr. Pepper.

Kudzu tea? I think I'll stick with my java. But who knows? There are all kinds of tea. You might have an idea for a goldmine Kathleen.

This coffee business.......

I visit Turkey (Istanbul) quite a bit and as a hardened tea drinker I've had the misfortune to be offered Turkish coffee in private homes. One can't refuse of course. Their coffee is like treacle but one only drinks the first two thirds of the tiny cup the rest is mercifully left alone. Assam tea brewed for five minutes, a little milk is the business. Some people put milk in the cup before the tea but these barbarians are in a minority.

Regards from the UK

Istanbul

Chris,

My wife and I were in Turkey about seven years ago. It was a marvelous experience. She enjoyed the coffee, but was thankful that they barely filled the cup.

Did you get to the 1000 year old Turkish bath? That alone was worth the trip. I would not get one anyplace else.

How is your trip going?

Alan

Chris,

I got a kick out of your post. I'll probably never get to Turkey, but if I do I'll remember.

More ramblings from the UK

As regards the trip Alan things progress slowly. It’s my elder brothers idea I’m hoping to tag along. He’s been over your side of the pond many times so is fairly savvy as regards living in the US as well as ‘driving on the wrong side of the road’ etc. Ed is sending me some mapping on CD which will come in very useful. It’s beginning to look like early next year as regards time scale.

The Turkish baths I’ve had number quite a few as well as being tied in knots by the Hamman masseurs. I’ve only ever used the ‘locals’ baths which are still very traditional some of the tourist ones are a bit ‘dodgy’ If anybodies coming over this side of the pond on holiday see if you can fit in Istanbul, its Europe’s best kept secret and also its safest capital city by far.

Regards to all……..
