According to this story in the NY Post (nypost.com), if you are under 30 you are more likely to get your coffee at a store than from a coffee pot at home.

Every morning I make a travel mug of Community Coffee Red Bag New Orleans Blend at home for my 16 minute drive to the train station and then have a cup of the office coffee when I finally get to my desk 90 minutes later. We have a Starbucks in our lobby but I refuse to give them my money.....

I make my travel mug of instant (folgers) with 2% milk, sugar twin and a small shot of hazelnut syrup in the morning and drink Earl Grey tea the rest of the day.

and I am most definitely over 30.

Until we moved yesterday, I got coffee from a local coffee shop directly behind my house - which was on my walk to work.

Now, I will be home brewing, as I am officially a bus rider, and the Coffee Bean is completely out of my way (and, if my experience this morning is any indication, not exactly employed by rocket scientists).

I guess I make my own because I am over 30. Folger's Mountain Roast, nice and strong to keep the hair on my chest thick, and it joins me at work in a nice 1-liter mug...

Since I am REALLY old, I stopped drinking coffee about 8 years ago as it was rotting the lining of my stomach.

Back when I was drinking, it was always store bought - usually a 7-11 or some sort of quickie mart coffee.

I drive-thru at Starbucks every weekday morning for (currently) an iced venti vanilla latte. $3.86, you know. Luckily I'm not one of those people who needs coffee all day, otherwise I'd be Broke.

On weekends, IJ, Mrs. JJD, and myself hit the neighborhood Starbucks for breakfast. IJ's a favorite of the baristas, so I think they would hunt us down if we stopped going. She usually goes with the iced tall decaf vanilla latte/triple chocolate doughnut-combo, but occassionally she changes it up with a banana chocolate chip coffee cake, or like yesterday she had a chonga (that's cheese/onion/garlic if you don't know) bagel with cream cheese.

I never drink coffee, but I do make tea at home with breakfast on weekdays.

I must be the only guy that drinks the free stuff that's supplied in the office.

A few months back they got a Flavia (myflavia.com) machine, though, so it's even better than it's been (and still free! Where do they GET all this money? Can I have some?)

Actually, sir, you're not the only one.

Fortunately, shortly after I saw with my own eyes the cashier in the cafeteria mix in contents of the decaf pot with the caf pot (a sin if there ever was one) my division started with our own coffee machine. It's not free-free since there's an agreement among us to supply the grounds on a rotating basis, so it's become this friendly competition as to who can bring the best stuff, which means more often than not it's far better than your average office coffee. Generally I spring for a couple of bags of Dunkin coffee grounds. One Hazelnut and one vanilla, just to have some variety within the variety.

That all said, in the winter there are days when I NEED my Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte fix.

To show what an old fart I am getting to be, while what you describe above is likely a delicious hot beverage, it is not coffee. The ingredients in coffee are roasted coffee beans, water, and heat. To a purist not even creamer or sugar are allowed (unless the coffee sucks). I like beverages such as you described but I am not sure what they are.

The only time I make an exception is in winter after 4 pm, Irish whiskey is permitted along with a dash of cream.

Oh, if only my old employers went that route. Once they consolidated locations, they'd put in a Keurig (keurig.com) machine in the break room. A nice assortment of blends (they went the K-Cup route) but it was $.50 a pop. And yet, still an improvement, as when they were in the converted Victorian house, the coffee there was decidedly... how you say, weaksauce? Guess the nurses (and most of the staff... out of maybe 50-75 people, I was one of four guys in the entire company) didn't want any hair growing from their chests.

As for now, I'd rotate between Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, Tim Hortons... basically, whatever's on the way and I haven't been to lately. There was a local place that had good stuff, but they were Just Another Victim of the neighborhood building that had to be built on an ancient graveyard. Guess they weren't the first coffee shop to go under. (Shame, as they had good wraps, too.) At first I'd go the light and sweet route for Dunkin Donuts flavored iced coffees, but now it's just plain ol' black. Doesn't really bring out the flavor all that much.

And yes, I am one of those weenies who'll drop over four bucks at Starbucks. But at least I'm not too demanding. Anything with milk is skim, no whipped cream, that's it. Methinks I should use some of these two-pot packets I got from the Target dollar section... uh, around Christmas?

But, at least that's how a Pumpkin Spice Latte STARTS!

I was more partial to the Cinnamon Dolce Latte, myself.

Uhm... I get coffee wherever I am when I want it. I have waaay too much at home now, because I had most of a bag of SBC I bought awhile back, and I had a really good coupon that was going to expire so I bought another bag, then the Zim Parents brought about another bag and a half left over from some function or another. Right now I'm mixing cinnamon in with the grounds and adding vanilla syrup to my cup. I figure that will last maybe a week and then I'll try some other concoction. And then I'll probably go a month without it because my stomach will act up.

Preach on brother, preach on!

The only quibble I have with your analysis is that my recipe for Irish Coffee calls for freshly whipped heavy cream rather than just plain cream and the rim of the mug should be lightly sugared prior to adding the liquid ingredients, usually Bushmill or the Black Bush and fresh brewed Kona.

In answer to the actual thread question, I usually drink the stuff at work because I'm way too cheap to pay for plain black coffee.

Well, we certainly differ on both of those notes.

McDonalds coffee is the most bitter, horrible swill that I have ever had!!

On the other hand, I love a good Tim Hortons coffee in the morning. I usually stop at one about 10 minutes into my 40 minute commute in the morning.

Once at the office, there are 4 of us who have a coffee pot and alternate purchasing it and making it. About 2 years ago they brought in a coffee machine and decided that they were going to charge cash for every cup. ($0.25 per cup) We decided that we could buy fresh coffee and make it better ourselves...
