Thread: Coffee Discussion

Hello all! I'm new to the forums, I'm not new to the biz. Just wanted to know how do you like your coffee? Do you drink the pre-ground, swamp water, gas station java OR do you grind it fresh? I myself happen to own a grinder & won't have it any other way. Nothing is worse then when one of my co-workers makes bad pre-ground coffee.Heyyyyy, What's Up There! (Frank Rizzo-Jerky Boys)

Any gas station coffee around here...haven't been to the local Dunkin' Donuts since they kept screwing up a "large cream and sugar" coffee order. I personally like the Green Mountain coffee the best. This reminds me..I gotta clean out the coffee cups from my car...The comments made by me are my opinions only, not of the Fire and EMS services I am affiliated with.
I have lost my mind..has anyone seen it? it's not worth much..but it's mine

Pretty much any coffee is good coffee to me, unless a probie makes it...I have no idea how they screw it up so bad sometimes.

Coffee out of the can. Flavored creamer is a must. Im partial to toasted almond or cinimon vanilla made by Coffee Mate.
If Im on the road, its either Dunkin Donuts or 7-11. The 7-11's around here have a blueberry cream flavored coffee that is fantastic. Add vanila creamer and its the best coffee Ive had anywhere

The only time that I drink coffee is when I am working nights. Then it must be Cowboy Coffee...Weak of heart need not apply!YGBSM!

Hot flashes and mood swings
I have a friend who's coffee is like mud, so we appropriately named it "Hot flashes and mood swings" You definately will be feeling these after drinking the sludge

It doesn't matter to us as long as the new guys have it made before our shift starts and that the pot is always hot and full. We also teach them that it's the first thing they do when they get up in the morning before the rest of the shift gets up.

Isn't this the only way?

About the color of tar, and not too far off on the consistency either!

Hot...thick....and black....like my women.
Sorry, just kidding, no offense!
I do like fire station coffee, the stronger the better. A good cup can be eaten with a spoon and fill cracks in the road!!!

Let's be real.
At 0300, when it's 10 degrees, you were fourth due so all you got to was sit on a 2 1/2" master stream (so you're soaked), does it really matter? I would drink hot water strained through dirt at that point.
But under normal circumstances, it's hard to beat Dunkin' Donuts coffee. (I'll bet that didn't surprise anyone).

Good one George!!!
No, not surprising at all.

When I am at home, I prefer the fine ground coffee from the supermarket. If I am in the area of one, it is either 7-11, WaWa, or Dunkin Doughnuts.
But it has to be black.

Two cans of Pepsi and a three chcolate covered dounts was his morning ritual. For night tours, it was two cans of Pepsi and a package of Hostess Suzie Q's."The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters.

I like things simple, so I'll take mine black. I drink it at work mostly, but I usually stop when I get the shakes.
