Niffla thinks psi is psi but he won't know if it's the real psi unless he goes to ask psi :house:

I liked rhizo. I actually gave him a vape to help him quit cigs back in the day and he sent me some of his art, I still have them somewhere put up. I always wished I could help him and was always trying to get him to come to his senses. I hope he is doing OK :frown:

Coffee tastes like shit, caffeine addiction makes you believe it tastes good.

Honestly I hate phones altogether :shrug:



Yeah I'm not really a phone guy. Most things I could do on a phone I'd rather do on my laptop. Other than phone calls, which I hate anyway, and taking photos or videos. The camera is the one thing on this iPhone that's better than previous Android phones I've had. The slow motion video capabilities are pretty cool.

Then it just tastes good because sugar tastes good. :shrug:

As a caffeine addict, I think energy drinks and coffee both taste amazing. I don't need to add sugar to my coffee, I can drink it black.

But I remember when I first tried coffee and energy drinks, they both tasted like shit, and the sweetened coffee tasted like sugary shit. I drank them because I needed to, and only after a few weeks did I "acquire" the taste for them.

There's a reason that decaf coffee doesn't have a huge following or as wide of a variety as regular coffee, and its the same reason they make sugar-free but not caffeine-free redbulls...because the caffeine is really what our brains are after.

See I'm NOT a caffeine addict. In fact I never drank coffee at all until this year when my great grandfather passed away which left me with the keurig I got him so I said fuck it may as well not let it go to waste. So I've been trying a lot and yes most taste like shit. But some have unique aromas and flavors which, combined with sugar, brings out the more complex notes. Some coffee is very enjoyable.

That's some addiction justification talk if I've ever heard it...right up there with IPA drinkers talking about the floral vs piney vs citrusy bouquet that makes IPAs taste good. Its basically Stockholm syndrome for your palette. You think it tastes good because, relative to unsweetened and more awful versions, it tastes better. You've abused your sense of taste so much, that it thinks its got it really good when it tries a sweetened, less horribly bitter or sour version of what you've been exposing it to lately, and your brain that is processing it is saying "well this also sucks but I'm still going to activate that reward pathway, because its less shitty than last time, and I know that this general set of shitty flavors means that I get a hit of caffeine in a few minutes."

That was a long setup to come back around to IPAs. :dumblol:

Have you ever had a legit kona coffee bean freshly ground and brewed?


Edit: FALSE. the sugar just makes it possible to "see" those flavors because they hide behind the acidity. And not saying a fuck ton if sugar, literally just a teaspoon or so :ancientaliens:

I have had a ton of varieties, roasts, grinding methods, brewing methods, etc.

You have to remember, I drank coffee and energy drinks for 15 years.

My first coffee ever was a nice freshly ground Kona, because my dad was really into fancy coffee.

Tasted.like.shit.

Every time I would work up the courage to try it again, this time with sugar, or that time with cream,

Tasted.like.sugary/creamy.shit.

When I was in undergrad and living off an average of 4 hours of sleep, and hiking back and forth from classes to the library to my dorm in the middle of winter, a hot cup of coffee would help me warm up and wake up, so I started drinking it regularly even though it always tasted like mudwater.

After a week or so, I started to "appreciate" its subtle, nuanced flavors.

Now I love the taste of coffee, but deep down I know it actually tastes like shit.

I'm ok with that too, a lot of things that have subtle flavors and an "acquired" taste usually take some suffering, experimentation, and training your palette to look beyond the shit flavor that makes the taste "acquired" and not just "pleasant".

I think its confirmed that this is an unpopular opinion lol :highfive:

If I ever drink coffee black, it's definitely just for the caffeine and not the taste. It tastes like a drug, nothing's that bitter without being full of alkaloids usually.


I drink moka pot espresso like it's regular coffee. The pot is supposed to be 12 shots but it works out to be more like 2 coffees. Usually with just cream and no sugar.

I still love coffee though, its the bee's knees (even if that's my addiction talking) that much we can agree on :highfive:

I've thought about it some more and you are right in that most coffee tastes like shit but I still stand by there are a couple that have AMAZING taste. Try a brand called hula girl. I got some for my moms birthday this year and I got to try it with her and it was the beat coffee I've ever tasted:shrug:

Spelling edit*

Its funny you mention this again, because it really is a wildly unpopular opinion. I brought it up to my wife over dinner last night, and she got a little frustrated when I kept reminding her that acquired tastes require you to experiment with how to minimize the shit flavor so you can taste the more nuanced, pleasant tastes underneath, and train your brain to focus on the nice flavors and try to ignore the shit flavors in order to acquire the taste. She was trying to tell me that you can't just start with regular strength coffee, you have to ease into it when you're young with mostly cream/milk/sugar and a little coffee, and my response was "because without the stuff that tastes good or masks the true taste of the coffee, it tastes like dogshit".

And I hear you man, you're preaching to the choir, I absolutely love the taste of coffee, and I'm sure that hula girl is probably one of the best coffees I'll ever taste. But I stand by my assertion that its primary flavor component is bitter/sour asshole, and only after subjecting your palette to different shades of this shitty flavor, and experimenting with ways to reduce the dominant flavor with additives like cream and sugar, can you really start to appreciate the good flavors in coffee, and usually by that time you've trained your brain to correlate those flavors with the dopamine reward pathway associated with caffeine.

At this point, I'm always going to agree with you that quality Kona coffee tastes amazing, because I've trained myself to find the good in a product that tastes like shit to the uninitiated drinker.

Either way, if we were closer to each other, I'd take you up on a cup of hula girl and a good conversation. :pipesmoke:

I'm dead. You're gonna die insulting a woman's coffee :lolsy: 

And damn it I can't argue with your logic. But isn't what you like(taste) subjective? Because I like sour and bitter things to begin with. I actually like real dark chocolate and the bitter taste :shrug:
