There are so many factors that go into coffee:

* Type of coffee?
* Black or white?
* Sugar or no sugar?
* Iced or hot?
...

I know when i'm at uni - I take advantage of the Barista Bros availability via the vending machines. I've had iced choc and 'double strength' coffee and the latter is only good for when you're about to fall asleep (and that is probably 99.999% of the time). The morning coffee I mentioned in my previous post is hot, 1 sugar, and about 75/25 (water/milk).

I feel that the poll needs more options...Like a "I don't like coffee but I can think of worse things to drink"

Tea is way better than coffee ;)

What's your favourite type of tea? Perhaps some more recommendations for Heidi? ;)

Basically any black tea that isn't cheap and nasty 8) With a dash of milk of course.
One of my favourites is Twinings Australian Afternoon, but I do also really enjoy most T2 black teas :)  However I'm not a fan of tisanes - some are ok but I'm really a black tea kind of person.

If Heidi says she doesn't like tea, she just hasn't found the right type yet ;)

Can we agree that, as a general rule, berry teas are unpleasant?

Yes, yes we can. People who say they're amazing are just lying to themselves

Gotta say, I've made a strong transition to pretty much exclusively black coffee over the last year or so.

I think I've had one sip of coffee in my life. Very unpopular opinion but I just don't like it, even the smell makes me flinch when my parents make it in the morning.

My sister (7) loves to play pretend café and always comes and asks me if I want a cup-of-chino.

I keep mucking around at the uni café and changing my coffee order even though my usual go-to is cappuccino 😂

What do people think about Starbucks coffee? I remember when I was in Year 8 (like 4 years ago) I really liked their Caramel Macchiato (idk how to spell it sorry if it's wrong).

My mum makes filter coffee which everyone (and me) LOVES but I can't drink coffee because it severely impacts my sleep patterns and quality.

I learnt how to make coffee at school in years 11/12 but I'd be pretty bad at it now. I don't really like the taste of coffee and it used to give me headaches. Would only normally drink it if I had a late class (almost every week for my 6-8pm lecture last year)! If so, normally only a mocha.
