1-4, Red eye, black eye, dead eye, al pacino.

I'll take a 16 ounce 4 shot iced coffee americano with a shot of white chocolate and a shot of raspberry, coffee cubes please.

Room for cream.

What would you call that?

A mocha (with whipped cream) from Indie Coffee along with one of their wonderful waffles is good.

I like mixing my own mocha at the Open Pantry. Just put hot chocolate with some coffee and add vanilla cream. It's pretty good.

I wish UW Memorial Union would switch from Peet's to Ancora. Why pay good money for bad coffee? And Peet's needs a shot.

Peet's used to be a great coffee....I wonder what happened. Their roasting plant in Alameda went "green" in 2007. Maybe that has somethin to do with it?

No one beats Ancora in this town....no one.

Although, that last Kickapoo Ethiopian roast was pretty kick ass.

I like EVP's coffee. They have some pretty dark, smooth roasts (like drinking dark chocolate).

Steep 'N Brew is cool b/c they'll brew you a fresh cup. Even though it's lighter, the Icing on the Cake is yummy. It's got vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg notes.

A soy au lait with a shot is the cup for me. Extra-extra hot.

I took some Equal Exchange Sumatra camping with me last week. I still have some. It's lovely.

Picked up a 50oz travel press at Fontana for my trip to the UP this weekend. Made some nice iced coffee with Just Coffee Electric Monkey.

I gotta get me one of this 50oz presses.

I've been drinking nothing but iced americanos lately. Refreshing and 0 calories.

Thanks. Damn, I'm one of those "buy local" freaks. Anyone know who carries these in stock around town? I'd use this instead of a thermos!

You understand that I have been preaching the two shots of espresso in iced horchata as the ultimate summer drink.

Hear me now as I have advanced to the next level....two shots of cafe bianco (espresso albino) in a tall glass of iced horchata.

muy fabuloso! topped off with fresh whip cream.

take it to the limit and ask for coffee cubes. come on, i dare you.

Wow, it's still about coffee! I hadn't looked in here since page one. I just assumed that the thread had taken a typical turn and folks were now arguing about anything from fair trade issues to possibly the price of jeans.

But it's still about what you're drinking... Nice.

Maybe the perfect melting pot has a base ingredient of coffee? Bringing the lions and tigers and bears to live together in a nice little one room abode.

I'm sipping simple automatic drip. A mixture of EVP peruvian and Steep & Brew breakfast blend. I grind my beans.

Hey, that dunkin' donuts stuff ain't half bad, but why ruin it a non-dairy creamer?

I couldn't get over to the coffeehouse today so I picked up a bag of, get this, eight o clock columbian.

Livin on the edge.
