    Diluted Coke, cause we ran out of Diet Coke (which I also dilute). Other times juice or water.

    Peace, Mike.

    Strong white tea, no sugar. Perfect.

    And one of the cheapest for how good it is.

    Last year it was rated best all-around coffee by the NY Times restaurant section (and I thought it was my secret).


    The best coffee I ever had was a bag of Colombian by Starbucks called "Estate Something or other". It was given to me.

    The best Colombian flavor you could imagine - and not incinerated like most Charbucks beans.

    Have never been able to find it since.

    Salem, mostly... Though the last time I was in Portland I had the best cup of coffee ever... It was a Mexican Mocha. It had cinnamon, cocoa, and crushed chili pepper in it. I loved the way it tasted, you couldn't taste the pepper until you swallowed it, then there was an interesting burning sensation in your throat. Very unique.

    Black coffee. Doesn't matter what kind. As long is it's strong and black and has caffeine.

    Right now I'm drinking Guatemala Huehuetenango -Finca La Providencia Dos that I roasted 3 days ago. It costs me just over $6 a pound for the green beans. Roasted to what I'd call "light city" to preserve the nuances, it's fruity, caramelly, and clean.

    Made in a French press, no sugar, no milk. Maybe a nice Havana corona on the side!

    Sometimes cheap, sometimes expensive, but usually Colombian. Black with a little sugar. No flavored junk... that's just a way to disguise substandard beans.

    To paraphrase Denis Leary, "What was wrong with the coffee-flavored coffee?"

    Cafe Mam Viennese through a drip filter, served with an innuendo of half 'n half. And if you find yourself in Salem, Oregon looking for anything, save yourself some heartache and drive either north or south for an hour. If you can't find good coffee (or beer) in Portland or Eugene, you ain't even tryin'.

    You use a Turkish powder in a French press? That is kinky man.

    Rocking some Guatemalan Huehuetanango in my Aeropress right now. Awesome!
