Anonymous said: Well, a ristretto is like a "shorter" shot of espresso. Less water and a faster extraction, so you taste the oils (and stuff) better. It has a fuller flavor. (by the way, do you know how to taste coffee? Basically take a sip, put your tongue on the roof of your mouth so the liquid gets to the sides, then put your tongue on your teeth and swallow. This way you can taste the bitter, the acid, the sweet...
Oh that sounds really good! I love having just a shot of espresso although I don’t have it much- I prefer to have a long black so I can get nice and warmed up while drinking! And awesome, thanks for that! My coffee tasting is limited to when my dad and I get a different blend. We make them on the stove coffee maker though so you get a really good indication of the flavors from the strong smells! I will have to try a ristretto at first chance though.
Anonymous said: You like coffee right? Because yesterday I had a ristretto and I. tasted. heaven.
Oh wow! What is a ristretto? It is the way the coffee is made or a blend or the type of bean?? I am very very curious because it sounds amazing.
parliament-of-owlets said: I am a hardcore coffee addict haha. For me it really depends on the type of coffee, the lighter roasts and espressos are best with nothing added and the in betweens go best with a dash of soy milk. At least that's what I think. Simple is best.
I love that mind set! Plus soy milk gives the coffee a really unique flavor :)
i-just-have-a-lot-of-feelings said: Hmm... coffee. It's a tricky thing. I don't like it bitter but too sweet and it makes me cringe. My favorite purchase from Starbucks is either the Caramel Frappuccino or the White Chocolate Mocha but I make a mean home brew; those French Roast beans, I grind them until they're SUPERfine, and then fill the cup up 2/3 of the way, the rest is Hazlenut creamer and one pack of Splenda (tho reg. sugar is fine as well)... :)
Oooh french roast beans sound lovely!
Hmm I hope you remember this! The coffee project (hey, that name might stick!) is where you should come into my ask box and write how you like to drink your coffee. Maybe you like it hot and black in the morning, but sweet and cooler and white in the afternoon. Maybe you liked whipped cream or vanilla cream or certain flavors. Maybe you don’t drink coffee at all! Maybe you just like the smell…
Either way, drop in and tell me and if you wish to escape for a while and see how other people drink their coffee, then drop by here for a new brew idea.
Share your coffee stories! How do you have your coffee in the winter? What about summer?! Do you have a sweet tooth or do you like your coffee rich, black and bitter? Come rest your feet in here and tell me how you take your coffee.

lammastide-deactivated20140112 said: i like drip coffee, medium roast, black, in one of three mugs, depending on my mood: one has a sun bear sitting on a trapeze on it; another was my grandfather's; the third has an octopus built into the bottom so it surfaces while i drink. i don't know why i'm so particular, but i'll usually take whichever one i'm drinking out of to campus with me so i can sip from it during class :).
Ooh I love being able to drink coffee in class! So much better than high school :)
reichenbastard-archive said: Coffee: usually hazelnut flavored, but always slightly milky and on the strong side. At least one teaspoon of sugar or it tastes too bitter and if it's going to be Iced, it must be near freezing cold (again, repeat all day, every day)
Hmm sounds lovely!! And your tea message you sent sounds lovely too, although a little strong for my tastes ;D

Wow! That’s one sweet coffee :3
