Dunno if this has been done, but...

Favourite kind of coffee? Instant and cafe type ones.

Im loving the peppermint mocha in starbucks at the moment, and instant I like nescafe espresso, though I have about 2 spoonfuls per cup :yes:

    I'm a tea drinker at heart but I love Vanilla Lattes from the big blue coffee company.

    Exactly, and pissing around with coffee too much is also wrong.

    Coffee needs to be fresh proper coffee, ideally organic and free trade and rainforest grown. But the flavour is the most important thing really.

    Totally agree. It isn't the same as coffee at all, its a different beverage altogether.

    I love a really strong double espresso, really dark roasted beans and no bitterness. Organic if I can and always free trade. Don't do starbucks, it is bitter as, the caf around the corner from the office does a lovely take away.

    Druckers Vienna Patisserie do the best coffee in Coventry without a doubt. (And the cakes are ok too - that's an understatement btw but since this thread is about coffee and not cakes...) You HAVE to try it if there's one near you.

    Cappucino, Double Espresso or a Latte depending on my mood...
    I agree, Instant Coffee is no way near as good but my favourite instant coffee is Nescafe Kenjara Mild.
    At work I've started making myself Coffee's which are roughly 50% coffee (yes real ground coffee) and 50% cream with 2 sugars.....oh my god they are addictive!

    I really like Turkish coffee but hardly ever drink it, think it's a location thing, as it always tastes better after baklava in Turkey/Israel/Harringay!

    Seems like a rare commodity in the UK though, its one thing I miss about living in Melbourne.

    But then Blue Mountain is about £20 a pack more expensive than even its closest coffee.
