Say, what's your favorite warm beverage?
« on: January 18, 2006, 04:00 PM »
Hot chocolate?  Coffee?  An espresso?  Cappucino?  A latte?  Hot tea (because you're a "hottie")*?  Hot apple cider?  Warm milk?  Something else?

I only start this (seemingly-inane) topic because I got me one of them newfangled Tassimo single-cup coffee makers, and I'll be damned if it's not the most-kickass invention of all time. 



(Funny article, where that pic comes from, by the way.)

I'm enjoying some lovely hot chocolate from it, even as we speak.  Because you see, it's not only a coffee-maker, but it also makes most of that other stuff I mentioned, too (with the exception of the cider and milk), provided you've got the "t-disks" for them.

But anyway, it's great.  I find myself using it more for hot chocolate than anything, but I've also liked the tea.  The cappucinos and lattes (what's the difference in those two, anyway?) aren't too bad, either.

I'm really not too much of a coffee drinker, I guess.  On the rare occasion when I will have some ("yes, have some")*, I load it up with so much milk and sugar that it can hardly be considered "coffee" anymore.

What about you?

I like sweet tea (warm or cold), coffee (black with sugar), apple cider, and hot chocolate.

How big is that piece of machinery, by the way? It looks bigger than my microwave.

My favorite is from 7-11:

24 oz cup, 1/2 Regular Cappucino, 1/4 Hot Chocolate, 1/4 Milk and stir.... YUMMY!  ;D

That machine is beastly looking...

Hot chocolate for me.

That is one snazzy piece of machinery there Cosby. I'm in the same boat as you, when on rare occasions I do drink coffee I need at least 3 creamers cup things and 6 packs of sugar.

That machine, it's really not that large.  Around 12" tall, 11" wide, and 10" deep. 

I guess it's about the same size as the average human head.

This thread, by the way, is kind of practice for me for when I'm entertaining guests.

I'll say "would you care for a warm beverage?" 

And they'll say "yes, yes I would."

And then I'll say "well, what would you like?"

And then they'll say "well, what do you have?"

And it will go on and on until eventually, by process of elimination, we've determined what exactly they'd like to drink.

So what I'm kind of doing here, is using you guys as a test market to find out what all kinds of warm beverages I should stock for my Tassimo.

Coffee, cream, one sugar.

Although coffee with booze in it is good too.

I like Hot Cocoa or "regular" coffee with maybe a hint of milk and sugar (none of that fangled "fancy" coffee for me).

I hate coffee.  Hate it.  Tastes like crap and gives me the runs.  Which is a shame because I am not a morning person and could really use the caffeine boost in the morning.

However, I don't mind hot chocolate for those cold days or tea with honey when I'm sick.  I guess I don't drink a lot of hot/warm drinks.

I don't drink coffee which has caused some odd looks, especially when I worked at Lowe's and coffee and cigarettes were a given on break.

I like my hot chocolate in the winter though.

I understand that there's a difference between hot chocolate and hot cocoa, just as I also understand that there's a difference between a latte and a cappucino.  However, I don't understand exactly what those differences are.

Anybody know, or shall I pull up Wikipedia?

Hot Chocolate for me as well.  I'm not a coffee drinker and tea is a rarity for me.

I really like coffee with a flavored fat-free creamer and 2 Splenda packets

But my real question is if you can make a Hot Toddy in that there machine?

I like coffee in the am with no sugar and a flavored cream.  I also like Irish Breakfast Tea, hot chocolate, cafe au lait and a hot toddy now and again.
