    Can you go without it?

    Just how big a part of your life is coffee?

    Thinking more seriously on it, I really can't do without coffee.

    I get bad headaches if I try and cut it out entirely and I also find tea boring and healthy teas are, to me, merely hot, flavourless water.

    I don't recall Janeway's coffee craze.

    Is this another example of the Mandela Effect?

    I am off to have a cup of coffee while I ponder on this! :emoji_confused:

    I take my coffee strong, sweet and dark - just like my women.

    Actually, that's bullshit...

    I'm no where near as fussy as that when it comes to women... :emoji_wink:

    No, I've always been aware of her coffee addiction.

    I'm just trying to work out where that fucking crystal in Piccard's ready room came from... :emoji_confused:

    From what I have gathered, it only seemed to appear as something people were aware of in 2015, apparently.

    And now they are finally merchandising it.

    Before then, no reference books or magazines or internet entries had ever mentioned it's existence.

    What year did CERN start operating? :emoji_robot:

    These ads were very popular in the uk...






    They had a string of 'em until, I think, the couple got married in one final advert.

    I've never been much for coffee. I love cappuccino and lattes, but as far as coffee goes, I have to add milk and sugar, so I might as well just hit up a coffee shop for an overpriced drink. And since I live in a town with no coffee shops, it means stopping at a convenience store to get a cappuccino, which is just the instant stuff in a machine which is overpriced more than a Starbucks. I do find myself being more of a tea man, usually leaning toward Picard's favorite Earl Grey. However, since I also can't get on without caffeine, I typically live on Mountain Dew.

    I can’t drink coffee without cream. Starbucks coffee is awful, imo, but I get it cause it’s there. McDonalds coffee is better. But the best thing for me is green tea - straight green tea, no jasmine or lemon, the way the Japanese drink it. My favorite brand is a Japanese brand, Ito En.

    I completely forgot about green tea! I certainly love the stuff, and order it if I know the Asian restaurant I'm at serves it.
