I drink coffee in the daytime but am a bit fed up with this instant stuff and am looking for something better(hence post), evenings I won't budge form a mug of TGtips(tea). So what oils the wheels of your gray matter then?

Anything they have in the coffee sho or in the union, i usually drink mocha. But ive actually switched away from drinking alot of coffee and tea during the day and have been drinking fruit juice and im feeling better for it.

Me too, love/hate thing with coffee, need it in the morning though. I hear Americans don't drink much tea, could be the same problem as when I am here on the continent. The bistro's either serve wine or coffee but the tea is always awful. One small point, glass of wine 2francs 50cts(I don't drink) whereas coffee is 3francs(Swiss) well coffee is imported I believe.

Yeah also there is a surplus of wine if the news is to be believed so thats why it would be cheap, dont drink wine so i wouldnt know prices, alcohol consumption is limited to beer and of course being scottish whisky and not often preferablly as they both cost to much(still feeling last weekends pissup with one of the guys back from basra), what is it with people drinking things we know wont do us anygood, we are all a bit crazy i think.

But seriously fruit juice is brilliant, i cant remeber the brand im drinking at the moment but its great, its the apple but its not the clear concentrated stuff but the nice dark stuff. I can tell when ive had to resort to drinking the usual mocha with two sugars in the morning doesnt set you up so well.

In the US, the two best tasting brands of coffee are Chock Full o'Nuts (yellow and black can) and Eight O'clock, which is usually bought as beans and either ground at the store or at home. Percolating coffee can make even mediocre brands like Maxwell House and Folgers taste good. (When you can smell the coffee, it's done) I have lived in cities where the tap water was so bad it was worth buying bottled water for coffee, too. The real secret to good coffee is to take the time to enjoy it while it's hot, and maybe share the time with a dear friend.

I have a friend who showed me that if you add a very small amount of salt it teasts better, and yes I didn't believe her till I tried it, just a few gains though.
