    Hey Rene! Not sure which i like more, this forum section or that forum icon picture. Made me smile lol.

    I'm sure you will get 1,001 questions about Apple so I'm not going to ask anything about that.
    Every time i see an article about new iPads, MacBooks or iPhones there is always that iconic cup of coffee in the picture.

    Now I'm not sure if it's just tradition to have it there or if you actually drink a lot. I did see you that you mentioned you hardly sleep so maybe its' needed ^_^

    My question is what's your favourite coffee or drink?

    Im personally a tea drinker and like to relax with some on a chair outside. Thanks for your response!

    Oh I got to answer this too! We have a local shop here called (early stages of franchising with locations in DC, NYC, Chicago, Boston and of course the original 4 Philly locations) la colombe. One of their signature drink's is called the Black & Tan (NO not the alcoholic kind), half draft iced Expresso & half iced Latte. Yes they have iced latte and express on draft! OR they can make it for you the old fashion way! It is a wonderful drink, and gives you just enough of a morning kick with the expresso!

    I tend to like variety, so I don't have single favorites as much as ranges of things I move between. For coffee, I love good espresso and latte. Blue Bottle in SF is awesome, as is Bitter + Sweet in Cupertino. They do a Red Velvet Latte that's amazing. I also really like Philz, which does pour over. They have a great mint mojito ice coffee.

    I have a subscription to Blue Bottle so I get a different single-source pack of beans every two weeks. I also live near a David's Tea so I typically buy 3-5 packs of loose-leaf tea a month as well. This month I got organic Earl Gray, Guava and Mango, and great Gaimache.

    Awesome! Thanks for the reply Rene ^_^

    I don't have a subscription or anything, just a habit of purchasing some every month.Earl Grey Tea is also quite nice but my favourite would have to be the local stuff near me called Rooibos tea. Sometimes i even plash out with some 'Green Tea'.

    I think I've only had about 2 cups of coffee in my whole life. lol But like my dad says, its never too late to start haha.

    As long as the coffee is fresh, hot, and not strong or bitter, I'm good...

    I just discovered the flat white, very good. A bit stronger than a latte, it's perfect!

    I love Davids Tea but my espresso of choice is a ginger vanilla latte that one of my local cafés in Boston make.

    This is actually one of my mothers favourites. Every time we go to a restaurant, it gets ordered. Maybe one day ill start to love coffee. The taste just doesn't work for me. Maybe i haven't had the right stuff yet to properly enjoy it. Or, maybe its an acquired taste. Any suggestions for a 'Light Coffee'. So one that dent have a strong taste that i can get started with?

    I need to try that.

    I like trying beans from Whole Foods (checking the roast date on the bottom to get fresher beans). I prefer South American beans to the African beans. The flavors are more caramel, etc., than citrusy flavors that make it more bitter.

    Good beans I can drink black no problem, but most of the time I put a bit of cream / creamer in it to take a bit of the edge off. No sugar though.

    At Starbucks, if they have Clover, and you're a complete coffee snob, try the Clover! It's a giant machine that makes one tiny cup of single origin coffee, but it's ridiculously fun to try!

    no matter the brand, it has to be dark roast. I want it to taste like coffee, not flavored water!

    Dark and strong. I really like Starbucks Pike Place roast. It's a medium blend but it actually tastes like coffee. I also have a French roast for home. My Keurig has a "strong" setting that makes it acceptable.

    Amazing, after the reading the first posting, my little pinky on my right hand shot up. The only way I could get it back to normal was to reboot my PC. I hate it when that happens.

    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 figured the pinky reference was in regard to drinking coffee, but the overall wording threw me off so I wasn't sure. (Laughing) Anyway, I appreciate the follow up.
