    Being an old Southerner, my coffee taste is primarily black with a touch of cream. The pinky was my way of saluting specialty coffee's, espresso and other coffee variations. No harm meant.
    I was more offended at the "PC" part than anything

    Starbucks and whatever mood I am in. I also have a Kuerig at home and have a variety from iced to hot to iced and hot teas as well.
    I do love the Flat white at Starbucks and I have them steam in cinnamon in to it. I love CINNAMON

    I ditched the Keurig for everyday use when I realized how wasteful it was... and I drink too much that one cup at a time was even more wasteful and just easier to brew a pot (or half pot). I got a Ninja Coffee Bar, though looking at the website it seems it's the last gen one without the built-in frother. That's fine, I never use the one it came with though maybe if I knew how I would.

    I still have the Keurig and use it from time to time in a pinch but the Coffee Bar has served me well!

    I have a subscription to Blue Bottle so I get a different single-source pack of beans every two weeks.
    how do you like Blue Bottle? I've been thinking about subscription services to try different coffees. I tend to like South American coffees (more toffee, smooth) more than Ethiopian type (more fruit, bitter), which is funny considering I like hoppier beers.

    I kind of wondered if that iconic cup with the swirls is actually real or a prop. It always looks the same.

    Just to add to the discussion, I'm often disappointed with coffee from coffee shops. There are a couple local places that make some reasonably good stuff. I can't stand Starbucks... I go for non-coffee stuff if I ever go there.

    I think the best coffee I've ever had was some homemade Turkish coffee. And, some of the homemade teas and chai have been pretty darn good too. (Next time you're in SF, Rene, check out New Delhi just off Union Square and get some chai... tell chef Ranjan I sent you! )

    Interestingly, my current favorite coffee I have several times a week comes in a packet. (I previously made single cups with a french press.) It's medicinal mushroom (dual-extraction) infused coffee from Four Sigmatic. The lion's mane stuff is incredible. It seems to get rid of the acidic aspect of coffee I don't really like, and keeps the caffeine jitters away. (I would never have believed I'd like coffee from a packet best... but I do.)
