    I tried to make myself like coffee years ago but never figured out what all the whoopla was all about. Now if it has chocolate in it and whip cream and you can't taste the coffee I love it but it makes my mouth run a mile a minute and that is just not me :cool:

    I just fixed a cup of good French Roast, fresh ground and using a single cup drip filter. Yeah, I do like good coffee, black, no pollutants (sugar, milk, cream, chocolate, etc.) added!

    no, you're not the only one, jw; I like the smell in the coffee aisle of the grocery store but beyond that I think the taste is too acrid. I'll go in with you on a chocolate shake, though!

    @brokensword well we missed out cuz I just looked up when National Milkshake day was and it was Sept 12 of this year...............darn :(

    Chocolate Milk Shake Day

    Date When Celebrated : Always September 12 th

    Chocolate Milkshake Day is an opportunity for chocoholics to savor and enjoy. The weather may have cooled off. But, our appetite for chocolate, specifically chocolate milkshakes, hasn't cooled off one iota.

    What a great day this will be! Simply combine a little milk with some chocolate ice cream, add some extra chocolate syrup, and mix it well in a blender. That's the fix-ins for mix-in up a big, tall glass of chocolate milkshake.

    On a diet? Not today. A lot of people celebrate Chocolate Milkshake Day with not one, but two or more chocolate milkshakes.

    Bottoms up!
    Maybe next year!

    I don't know how I do it but then I have never had any kind of stimulant to use to miss so I guess I don't know what I am missing. For one thing I don't do 5am get out of bed mornings and never have.
    When I was a kid I switched high schools in my senior year cuz the new one had free study halls where you didn't have to show up.
    I signed up for morning and last period ones so I came later and left earlier upload_2017-9-29_16-14-32.gif

    I have been enjoying a very nice pumpkin spice coffee we have at work. I usually like to drink my coffee light (meaning lots of cream) this coffee is so smooth I can drink it black :coffee:

    Love coffee.
    For best results, buy ethically picked green beans and roast your own!
    The taste of coffee with beans that have been roasted less than 2 hours prior is like the difference between fresh and frozen peas.

    I'm an early riser, most my life I've been hard wired to wake up at 4am, even if we have company and I stay up till midnight, 4am, BAM, I'm awake and ready for breakfast and coffee. My wife thinks I'm nuts, but I just love mornings!

    I find the smell of a newly opened bag of whole bean French roast intoxicating.

    We get up around 5 every morning. Neither of us is a night person. It has to something really good to keep these eyes open after 10p.
    Make the coffee watch the crazy news while sipping.
