The Coffee Thread. Or: How to start your morning.

The place where no good punk-asses and aimless hipsters come to discuss a rather lousy comic.

It's usually two bowls of cereal in the morning while reading webcomics, so I guess milk.

I'd rather drink tea instead of coffee, but I don't really anyway to brew it at work. At home, I'm just lazy and drink water.

I've discovered that all coffee does is prevent me from sleeping. I still get tired as all hell and then can't sleep.

Sounds like Venture Bros. But I'm probably incredibly wrong. But I can picture that magical guy whose name I forget saying it.

I drink my coffee black, blacker, blackest. I like it strong enough to emotionally scar small children & knock small birds out of the air at 20 feet.

First cup is usually the cold leftovers from the day before, so I can get started on making the first pot for the department. The second cup is hot, but usually goes cold before I finish it, and I do finish it. If I have a third cup I end up acting like a 3 year old who ate a box of Ho-Hos, so I usually don't.

Other morning rituals include showering, washing my hair, putting on brightly colored Hawaiian/Aloha shirts, packing a light lunch, and worshiping at the alter of Yig the Father of Serpents.

This seems like a good place to cross post this question:

Postby Kerinbot on Tue Aug 22, 2006 1:37 am

What's a good "Irish Coffee" Recipe? Can we whip up something that comes out to Eight to One proportions, for purposes of posting a cool beverage on the "Comic Alcohol" wiki?

What I have been calling "Irish Coffee" when I make it, isn't really, I think. I make a good, hot, strong cup of coffee, then add Kahlua to taste and sometimes I put that reddi-whip in a can on top. Or sometimes I just add some heavy cream. (God, it's good).

But the actual recipe is probably something else. Incidentally, when doing a little research into this, I came across a site with info on Kahlua, and a list of the top named drinks made with Kahlua. We would be in good company, I think.

I thought i would share this list, as it's pretty funny:

B-52
Colorado Bulldog
Espresso Martini
Flaming Lamborghini
Baby Guinness
Mudslide
Quick Fuck
Toasted Almond
Toblerone
Mud Slide
Screaming Orgasm
Duck Fart #2
Dirty Banana
Frozen Mudslide
White Russian #3
Crispy Crunch
Fridays Frozen Mudslide
Pensacola Bushwacker
Paralyzer #2
Ultimate Mudslide
Kahlua and Cream
Mind Eraser
Paralyzer
Dirty Girl Scout
Girl Scout Cookie
Mongolian Motherfucker
Kinky Orgasm
Adios Motherfucker #2
Blow Job #4
Don Pedro

(from http://www.drinksmixer.com/desc292.html)
I'm going to go find out how to make a "Dirty Girl Scout" now...

I think a good name for an Irish coffee variant for us might be something called "Eight to One in the Morning."

Any feedback?

Alternative to Kahlua...

Postby Kerinbot on Tue Aug 22, 2006 1:45 am

If I'm out of Kahlua (which happens pretty often, as I don't go buy it very often) and I happen to have any Bailey's Irish Cream, I use that.

If you're in a really fancy mood, use both. I seldom have both unless I bought too much for a party, though.

Kahlua is the only liqueur that I like neat. (pref. very very cold). But it's great in coffee.

I don't need coffee to wake up, but I love the taste of it. In the mornings I usually just grab a bowl of cereal and some water or maybe a can of Slim-Fast if I'm in a hurry. Coffee comes when I have time to devote to it.

I like to drink coffee when I'm working on my comic, so I have fresh ground decaf Arabica coffee in a 16oz. mug with fat-free half and half and one tablespoon/two packets of sugar.

I guess all that 'light' stuff qualifies as a whole different level of pussy shit.

My understanding is that Irish coffee is coffe with a shot of whiskey in it.
My drink-making resources seem to confirm this, although this recipe calls for sugar and heavy whipping cream.

I am totally not a morning person, in fact, I think f/ dawn to 10 A should be renamed 'Hell-time' or 'The Damned Hours'

My mornings usually start with the half conscious and half blind wandering/stumbling through my house as my sons ask for something called 'breakfast'. I usually head toward the kitchen. I've found this is normally where this 'breakfast' is located.

Slowly, my brain catches up and the day starts


Coffee, though, has nothing t do with when. I drink Coffee f/ wake to sleep. Usually 1.5 to 2.5 pots, the leftovers starting the next days stuff. Black and straight (anything else and it's not coffee) When I have whiskey, it often ends up in the coffee.
