    Re: How do you like your coffee?

    True coffee aficionados have been known to travel the world for a cup at the Airport Diner on Rockaway Blvd near JFK. They haven't cleaned their urns since opening in 1927. Don't dare allow a spoon in the cup for more than 5-6 seconds. The steel of the spoon melts into the coffee, and not because of the heat. Drunk pilots have been know to drink two cups for instant sobriety, and better than meth for staying awake during trans Atlantic flights.

    RA Heinlein, Navy Commander and writer, had five grades for coffee. In descending order--Coffee, Java, Joe, Jamoke, Carbon remover. Coffee is what you sip with cheesecake opposite an attractive person. The lower three grades are for the morning after, depending on the duration of the nocturnal gymnastics.

    I once had breakfast at an AF base near Balad Iraq. The dining facility urn had two labels--Strong and Weak. The strong was military grade coffee. The weak was what the senior NCOs drank. For you non-military people, senior NCOs in a hazard zone would get three to four hours of sleep on a slow night.

    On the subject of sleep, I once knew an old warhorse named Naily. He served three tours in Vietnam and would tell stories for hours. One was of his third tour. His unit had assembled and outfitted at Tien Sha (Danang).

    Before action, the unit received a long weekend leave in Tokyo. A bunch of the grunts pooled their money and rented the basement of a hotel. There was booze and hookers 24/7 til they departed. All the NCOs got rooms and slept for three days.

    I like it fairly strong and black. I grew up drinking it with cream and sugar in high school and then college but as I matured and drank good coffee that didn't need cream and sugar to make it palatable I began to use less and less of either. I prefer a medium roast Columbian.

    No self respecting broken down sailor would put any additives in their coffee.

    But here the topic will be only:

    black (without milk or sugar?
    with milk - and that may also be milk powder or cream etc etc
    with sugar - and that may also be some other kind of sweetener
    with milk and sugar
    With milk and a nice cream liqueur.
