It both tastes and smells like $#it. Might as well brew up the sweepings from the stable floor.

#3 Bacon with liver has the same problem.

#4 Coffee stimulates both taste and smell receptors. Besides all that, it is just plain good.

#5 Bacon does NOT have the same problem. Liver...........blech!!
AA when it comes to coffee I AM a h8r and proud of it!! Mocha, latte, iced, cream, anyway anyhow I just can't take the stuff!!
And believe me I've tried. Everything from the gourmetest of the gourmet, to the stuff in styrofoam cups from the building site coffee truck (and at 20 degrees with a humid breeze off the harbor MAN did I want to like that stuff) I just can't stand it.
Oh well to each his own 8^(

#9 Shipman, I've heard of that stuff from my UK friends.........umm, I don't think so ;^)
Tiny, why would you spoil good brandy like that?
Scooter, NOW you're talking! I love a good cuppa!

#10 depends upon whether you filter it thru your bandana or not. if you've got a clean bandana ... it tastes fine :-)

#11 Don't make it in coffee maker, or---at least, clean the later daily---and it'll taste fine.

#12 I still throw a tiny pinch of salt in the grounds - brings back memories of engine-room brew.

#13 That's why ice cream is made in many flavors. Different people have different tastes. I really like a strong cup of coffee in the morning out on the porch while watching the wild life. There was a Great Blue Heron in the pond this morning trying to catch frogs. Also, I love it around a campfire.

#15 Mr. Wife is just as happy I like neither coffee nor beer, as it leaves more for him.
Interesting article, lotp. :-)

#16 Coffee means the outdoor life for me- while we are camping my wife makes me a big mug of coffee every morning. At home in NYC it's Dilmah tea every day.

#18 Tea for me, or hot chocolate (the real stuff, not mix) as a treat in the winter.
