    THIS is.

    52oz of over-caffeinated goodness.
    Also perfect for icing down coffee on a hot day :D

    Why is coffee served so fucking hot?

    Maybe my mouth is just oversensitive somehow, but I have to wait literally 30+ minutes sometimes for it to be cool enough that it is not painful to drink...

    That's just the non-metal leaving your body.

    (Clearly there is progress to be made.)

    Then drink iced coffee. :shrug:

    No one says you have to drink hot coffee. I love all coffee, but I usually prefer iced coffee over hot coffee (but this also depends on what kind of coffee I'm drinking).

    I don't like it when people serve their coffee scalding hot either.
    But I either like it hot, but drinkable, or ice cold, and regardless of the time or season I prefer hot to cold.

    Yup, It's my Coffee Keg :D :coffee:

    Well, It needs to be hot in order to brew, so it makes sense to serve it that way. Iced coffee is always a way to go, Dunkin Donuts Iced Vanilla Latte = :yum:

    If you're going to cool your coffee, keep in mind that coffee deteriorates with exposure to air - start with brewing it strong and icing it down.

    This is what I usually do, especially at home.

    Sometimes I'll just order it iced, but most places charge you more money for less coffee when you order it iced. Ordering a regular hot coffee and a free cup of ice = win.

    Major bump on a super dead thread, but I've been getting so into coffee lately I can't let it lie.
    An excellent coffee shop opened up in my rather small town a while back and in the past year or so I've been getting my fix there. They have knowledgeable employees who are passionate about making good coffee and it's some of the best I've had. I don't so much drink coffee for the caffeine as I do for the taste and to sit back, chill, and enjoy it.
    In the past few months I've been investing in coffee gear to brew my own (Grinder, Chemex, etc.) and reading into the techniques and sciences behind brewing a great cup. It's fascinating to me and I enjoy the challenge of trying to get every variable just right for that perfect cup (which hasn't happened yet :lol:). I enjoy most any coffee as long as it's fresh and well-brewed. I've been enjoying a medium roast Ethiopian Yirgachefe this past week.

    Bit of a late reply (4 years lol) and off-topic but if you like Kona Coffee you should try Real Ale Coffee Porter. They brew their beer with the coffee. Sinfully delicious in the winter.

    I think the quality of the bean doesnt really matter, the most important thing is that you grind immediately before packing the handle. Also important is to have the machine pre-warmed

    Just got back from Kona, hawaii and the coffee there is just out of this world. It is quite light but it just doesn't taste / feel like other coffee. I brought back a lb of pea berry and a lb of just regular 100% kona and I'm thrilled. It is not an everyday coffee but it sure is a nice change!

    I'm a coffee addict and I make my coffee ay home in a regular filter-coffee maker.

    I especially love that first cup of fresh coffee in the morning :agreed:
    When going to bed at night I already look forward to my 1st coffee the next day :hbang:
