No contaminants in my coffee - just black, no sweetener. And I’ve never done any of that stuff the guy claims to have done in that video. :lol: ::hmm::

I used to like my coffee with contaminants. Then one day, I decided there was a better use for $3-4 than a two weeks' supply of CoffeeMate. These days, I will put milk or half-and-half in coffee, but only if it's hot and I don't want to wait for it to cool down. Maybe this makes me a wacko, but I find coffee best when it's no warmer than room temperature.

When I first started drinking coffee as a teenager, I used real cream, PET, CARNATION or whatever was in the fridge.

Dad told me that was “Sissy” and challenged me to drink it black for two weeks, no matter how badly I thought it tasted. I did that and I still drink it black.

Didn't start drinking coffee until I was 20. Cream and sugar for a while and then I ditched the cream but kept the sugar (I'm a sugarholic). Fast forward to the turn of the century when I dropped the sugar (trying to drop the weight I picked when I quit smoking). Now I seldom drink coffee. ::shrug::

In the Navy back in the early 70's we had those 30 cup percolators everywhere on the ship. By the time you get down to the bottom third of that it gets very strong (depending on the amount of grounds used) so I got in the habit of sugar and cream. Later after I came to shore duty we used the 10 cup drip coffee makers in the control tower and radar room so the coffee was much better. I dropped the sugar, but I still continue to this day to use milk or half & half.

I grind 8 o’clock beans every morning, make the coffee in my trusty Bunn coffee pot, pour into the Stanley black, and drink it from my Ithaca cup. Perfection. I will occasionally put some half and half, NO sugar, in my coffee

A couple of years ago I need a new thermos so I got on eBay and bought a good looking older USA made Stanley. Unfortunately, it had lost it’s vacuum and wouldn’t keep anything hot. So I decided to try out their lifetime warranty. I contacted them, they asked for my model number, sent me a brand new one with no questions asked. They did ask that I destroy the old one, so I did. With an AR 15! But, Stanley WILL stand behind their products.

The family story is that my Dad went into a diner ordered a black coffee. The waitress gave it to him with a little milk. He asked why. She told him he looked like he needed some nutrition.

He ended up marrying her. He drank coffee with milk for the rest of his life.

Coffee or tea with milk is called a Julie Andrews. Does anyone know why?

I started drinking coffee when I was a kid, with my dad at the deer lease, fishing, or in a duck blind. It was strong and black, no sugar. Dad called it “camp coffee”. ::woot:: I was never offered coffee at home where mom made it. :lol: So I didn’t know any better. Then when I got my first job after college I worked in an area next to the data processing center, a three shift operation that had a thirty-cup coffee urn. Usually when I got there the remains of the night shift coffee was what I got, before the day shift made a new morning pot.

Over 50+ years of marriage (and especially since retirement) my wife has “refined” my taste toward regular strength coffee. But I still don’t put any contaminants in it. Our daughter-in-law likes what I call “foo-foo coffee” with hazelnut, mint, or any manner of other flavors in it. I tease her about it - when we’re visiting there out of deference to me she makes plain coffee although I’ve never asked her to. :lol:

Ed It stems from Julie Andrews' stint as a nun, or white nun to put the coffee type into perspective; milk no sugar/white nun(none).

Cool story about your folks! ::tu::

Thanks Eric. Yes Julie Andrews is the white nun. So it’s milk no sugar.

My Dad liked to tell that story. He said he fell in love with her because she cared enough to worry about his health. Truth to tell she probably saved him from an early death.

Navy and coffee? Indeed.

I hadn't been on my new ship for long, and I didn't drink coffee. I had the 8:00 watch and the grizzily old Chief came in to the control room, headed for the percolator and it was empty. He really got on my ass for not having it ready when he came on duty. I thought it was BS for me to be required to make coffee since I didn't drink it, but you do what you have to do to get by. The next morning, I got that 30 cup percolator and I scrubbed the crap out of it with Comet (and wasn't real particular about how well I rinsed it) I made the coffee and manned my broom for a clean sweep fore and aft....The Chief comes in, sees the coffee is made and smirks as he fills his regulation mug. I had my head turned but my ears open when he spewed the first mouthful all over the room. He pops the lid off of the percolator and sees it is shining like new money. I thought he was going to cry when he explained that it took three years to properly "season" a new percolator....I just played innocent and told him, Chief, the inside of that thing was filthy, I couldn't make your coffee in a dirty machine....I never had to make coffee again, but I never got off of his **** list either. It was worth it as it still makes me chuckle 50 years after the fact. ;)

Great story Steve, as are ALL the others! I started drinking coffee when I was 17 and working at my Dad's Texaco gas station. WE have a restaurant up here called "Salisbury House" that more-or-less caters to the working man, and it was close by so we bought our food there if we didn't bring a lunch, plus our coffee. They served the strongest, best coffee known to man, and I had mine with cream and sugar, but one of my fellow employees was a rugged Native man who really liked his alcohol, so many days he would show up hungover. When whoever was sent for coffee came back, this man would grab his extra large cup of scalding hot black coffee and gulp it down in about 4 gulps. I watched in amazement figuring that at any moment he would be screaming in pain, but he simply finished the cup, threw it in the garbage, and said, "O.K., lets work"! I still drink mine with c + s along with 2 or 3 smokes, but as it was stated earlier, after 50+ years I'm gettin' kindda bored with coffee! Go figure! ::shrug:: 8)

One of my buddies had some kind of watch on the bridge, must have been a messenger or something similar. In the middle of the night the old man handed this kid his coffee cup and said, "Here, do something with this." He disappeared through the hatch and reappeared in about thirty seconds. The Captain did a double take and asked him, "What did you do with the coffee cup?" The poor lad gulped and admitted, "I threw it over the side, sir." The old man went ballistic and threw the book at the kid for several things including disobeying a direct order, destroying government property and I can't remember what else. He did some brig time and I don' think that he ever saw liberty again....It was the opinion of the engine room gang that the the young man did exactly what the captain told him, but our opinions didn't matter.

Well ole Chief Ernie Randell had mercy on me that day. Funny story we were going down to Africa to pick up some mine sweeping helicopters because the Iranians were mining the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf back in 1979 and we ran into a hurricane. Well the ship was all over the place and taking those massive waves and we had to tie our rolling chairs tied to our work equipment and and keep working. Well ole Chief Randell was having some trouble keeping his food down and I was just a young E3 dipping Skoul and sptting it in the trash can teasing the ole sea dog about upchucking in his trash can. I guess I was just a young guy and the ship taking those kinda rolls didnt bother me. Ole Chief Randell cut me some slack on that too. He must have liked me or something! :)

WE have a restaurant up here called "Salisbury House" that more-or-less caters to the working man, and it was close by so we bought our food there if we didn't bring a lunch, plus our coffee. They served the strongest, best coffee known to man...
Sounds like my kind of eat-um-up joint!
Yep, you said it Dan, the absolute best burgers, fries, sandwiches in town, and bacon and eggs to die for! ::sotb:: 8)
Fortunately, I never had to deal with cleaning up some salty old Chief's coffee cup...

Just FYI, long term consumption of very hot liquids can precipitate esophageal cancer.

We used to camp with another couple our age.

Coffee was made every morning in a coffee pot, not a percolator, by boiling the grounds in creek water.

At the end of that process, Dennis would drop an egg into the pot, all the grounds would settle to the bottom and not end up in anybody’s mug.

And there was one soft boiled egg for someone to eat when the coffee was gone.
