Navy coffee was the ZOOM Energy Drink. I learned to drink it black in the Goat Locker where my dad usually stuck me when I went with him on sea trials.

"Here kid have a cup, this'll put hair on your chest". Those tattooed maniacs were so salty they didn't glance at their mugs as they auto gyroed them for pitching and rolling. Dump in the coffee then water and add a pinch no two of salt.

I tried off-brand coffee in the sixties. It was ghastly. It learned me.

I had a Kureg at work and did not like it. My coffee mug holds about 2 cups of coffee and the coffee in a Kureg was not strong enough. I drink at least 12 cups of coffee a day. DW drinks her coffee with half coffee and half milk and drinks more coffee then I do. We have a 14 cup coffee maker and really like Costco coffee. In the RV we use a percolator on the stove. It comes out hot and as strong as you want to make it. I also use instant coffee when I don't want to make a pot of coffee. I also enjoy a shot of Cuban coffee which I can make on the RV stove.

When my granddaughter Dalia was five, she'd stumble into my kitchen wearing an upside down smile. Jeezo, wotta grump. She'd pour half a cup of coffee, add 50% milk and several teaspoons of sugar. Fifteen minutes after drinking it, what an angel!
In Mexico such as prepared cup is called Cafe con Leche (milk). But almost unheard of for children.
My first decades here restaurant coffee was a cup of lukewarm water, a jar of Nescafe, a teaspoon, and 1/4 glass of milk.
USA experienced Mexicanos started referring to it as NO ES CAFE.

For storage, I need strong pressure proof containers, and a fitting to connect to a vacuum pump used to pump down air conditioners. Yeah it's a dream, but it sure would be nice cracking open a sealed kilogram of whole beans after a year's storage,

I have a 12 cup Cuisinart drip at home at make a pot of Starbucks Pike Place every day. My wife uses the Keurig. I need to start putting the Pike in a refillable pod and try the Keurig because I know when we hit the road the Cuisinart is going bye-bye. [emoticon]

For me, Starbucks House Blend decaf (my stomach thanks me for not sending caffeine) brewed in an Aeropress, with about 2/3 tsp of xylitol (tastes just like table sugar, but healthier) and a generous dollop of heavy cream.

I use Mr. Coffee. The coffee turns out fine in my estimation. I always grind whole beans separately for each cup.

I've tried instant coffee, but wound up throwing the rest of the jar in the garbage. Absolutely undrinkable. Years ago, I made my coffee "cowboy style" by boiling in a saucepan. It turned out very good. In addition, I never use tap water, but bottled water only.

My favorite commercial coffee seller had been Starbucks. I've always ordered a large latte. However a recent experience turned me away for now. The latte had a decidedly burnt taste and I had to return it. A new cup still tasted burnt and I traded it in for a slice of banana nut bread instead of ordering more coffee. [emoticon]

I remember for decades going to the store and wandering down the aisle with numerous bags of coffee beans..and the big old coffee grinder.
I think you poured the beans in and put the bag under a chute and set the machine for the grind you wanted. Even as a child I thought it was ambrosia. We were raised such that The Amish would be rated as Hippies, so we weren't allowed to drink coffee.
I have thus far not found the coffee that taste as good as that smell.
Sometimes a memorable smell resembling waifes by, but.....
If there are markets that still have one of those grinders and shelves of different beans, I'm going to buy what smells the best and grind it for what type of machine?
If I find the taste to match that smell, I'll trow out the Kerig and find the coffeemaker that doesn't screw it up.
Starbucks is a total turnoff.Smells like burnt rubber or something.
A coffee grinder of my own and the proper beans is the answer. Why can't I ever think of it when shopping?
