Default How's the Coffee?

I take a couple family members ice fishing with me.....I didn't ask for help with fuel or anything. (I was going anyway so I don't see the need to ask, or expect it)


We get on the ice and lines down the hole and begin to catch a few dinks. I get the good old Stanley Thermos I've had for more than 20 years that's filled with coffee and pour me a cup. One of the "family" asked if he could have a cup. "Sure, no problem" I tell him.


First "Rooke" mistake.... He unscrews the stopper all the way out. No need to do that if you've owned one. I shook my head and explained the procedure and its to be used so you drop the stopper down the hole.


Second "Rooke" mistake.... After filling his go cup, he asked if I had some creamer and sugar. I shook my head again and said, "Do you see a Starbucks sign on my hat?". He got the idea quick. LOL


I've been drinking black coffee since I can remember. I mean strong, thick, dark, black coffee. The stronger the better IMO. I'd hate to see what my guts look like now.

So, this experience has me wanting to know of you that drink coffee, do you doctor it up with "stuff", or take it as it comes out of the pot? Maybe I'll have to add creamer and sugar to my fishing gear now.

Sorry, I'm a wimp.

I like some coffeemate in mine. No much, just a bit to take the edge off.
A couple of the guys I hunt and fish with do the black thing.
I get crap, that's okay.

What's good to ya, is good for ya.

I know what you mean. Way back in the day when I was working in the Utah oil fields when someone asked you if you would like a cup of coffee you took it they way that it came, that is unless you had the creamer in your pocket. I have had coffee that is so thick that you could eat it, other cups so thin that you thought that it was just hot water. Then there were the ones that put a half a thermos of whisky in it before they put the other half of coffee into it.

You always thanked them and got even with them with your own coffee in the next few days. Working out there where high temperatures were around 0 you didn't complain. And likewise those that you gave some coffee to took it with a smile on their face.

I take mine black 90% of the time and pretty strong. Not "cowboy coffee" strong with sediment still in the coffee can but definitely not weak.

Most I use is half and half. But rarely. Never been a fan of sugar in mine, don't like the crash. We did freeze sweetened condensed milk into 1 oz shots when I worked winters in the Duchesne Valley but that was for -15F and when I was 25 lbs lighter.

I can drink it just about any way. Black (as long as it isn't too strong or bitter), black w/ sugar, cream only, cream & sugar, etc.

As of late I have stopped adding both; cream and sugar and just use french vanilla creamer now.

I like my coffee to be cold.

And to be Red Bull.

I like my coffee black, nothing added. I like bitter drinks, started drinking coffee regularly when I was in my late 20’s early 30’s. Helped me to maintain my weight by skipping breakfast and just having coffee. If I get hungry and don’t want to eat I have a cup of coffee and the hunger goes away. That and exercise have kept me a consistent weight. I enjoy it and feel pity on those missing out.

I have to admit that a little bit of Irish Cream goes good in coffee

Red Bull?

I'm starting to think moving to Alaska was less voluntary and more disinvitation from the lower 48.

Not everybody is cut out for the Great North.

Burnt water is an excellent caffeine delivery system, but ugh, that taste.

I'll take sugary 9 volt battery bubbly water over it every time
