Trila stated; "You're not putting enough 'stuff' in your coffee! By the time I add creamer, hot coco powder, marshmallows or whipped cream (or both!).....I can't even tell that it's store brand coffee!!! LOL"

Is there enough volume in the cup, for the coffee? Maybe rather than not recognizing the coffee brand - - -you've forgotten to add the coffee.:laugh:

Only Yorkshire tea

I, (like Trila), also like things added to coffee sometimes, such as cocoa, chilli powder, cinnamon, paprika

I probably drink about 10 cups of tea or more per day ...... only 1 coffee and not every day. No room after all that tea.

Depending how stressful the day is, it might be more than 10 cups (mugs actually, large ones :)

I cannot drink them everyone I have tasted is horrible apart from Douwe Egberts gold that isn't to bad.

If you are a tea drinker do you buy this cheapo coffee for guests? same with Coffee drinkers do you buy these cheapo teabags for guests?

What Teabags do you buy and Coffee? can you drink the cheaper brands or do you prefer quality brands?

That sounds like something the kids would buy from the ice-cream man bits and pieces and multi coloured loopy juice all in one LOL.

I have never had all that whipped cream and stuff in a coffee I just don't like the look of it, I am coffee sugar and semi-skimmed milk job done.
Some of that cheap coffee reminds me of that evil stuff which used to hide in jars and disguise itself as coffee but it was chicory and tasted like soggy gone off leeks mushed through a sweaty sock.

Nescafe is mostly wonderful, when I have been out for a while working on the garden or a car having a good Nescafe Original is just mmmmmmmmm so good.

Have you ever tried Nescafe from B&M stores? I don't know what it is as it is the same jar etc and it is a lot cheaper than other places but the taste is very odd like it has been mixed with some really cheap stuff, Can't put my finger on the taste but it isn't right.

We use PG Tips tea bags and keep a tiny jar of Gold Blend coffee for visitors who want it.

We never drink coffee and invariably it goes out of date with half a jar left and gets thrown away.
