Alright /ck/, how do I learn to like coffee? I don't like being that guy in the group who orders a coke in the morning. Is there any particular thing I should start with, or look out for, or avoid? What about flavoured coffees, and milk/cream/sugar?
>>
Bump for interest. I hate the taste of coffee
>>
>>7038309
Start with a flat white or latte with two sugars. if thats too much sugar decrease. Once you've done it a few times move to one sugar and then eventually none. Once you've done that for a while move onto long black or americano if you're a pleb
>>
>>7038309

Drink tea instead
>>
Don't be afraid to drink flavored coffees or to drown your coffee in milk and sugar. You have to start somewhere.

If you dislike bitterness, make sure to buy "smooth" coffee. Using an Aeropress also helps with making coffee much smoother.

The fact you're ordering a coffee rather than a coke means no one should coffee snob you from that point, unless they're a hipster anyway.

I started with mochas and other sweet coffees and eventually the taste just grew on me.
>>
>>7038309
Start with mocha and flavoured coffee, move to coffee with lots of sugar and milk such as cappuccino or latte. Eventually drink espresso and watch womens knees quiver at you sophistication.

And remember, no cappuccino after 11am.

don't drink it quickly. add 2 sugars if you can't bear the taste but eventually you will get sick of sugar. if you feel compelled to put milk in it just buy ice coffee desu senpai
>>

I really like that Gevalia coffee. That and aeropress, I don't even need any sugar. Get aeropress though. Or french press. Regular coffee machines eventually makes coffee taste bitter even after you clean it a bunch.
>>
>>7038309
Start with drinking cappuccino
>>
There's some amaretto flavoured instant coffee that you can get which is delicious. Drink that with whole milk or cream, you won't need sugar. Start there
>>
Man up and drink it black. You'll learn to like it
>>
>>7038309
Its really an adquired taste. Not much help on actually drinking it as my dad groomed me from a young age to like coffee and wine. But when I started drinking it without sugar I just stopped using it then like two weeks later coffee with sugar made me literaly gag

>>7038541
If you need sugar in your coffee you dont really like coffee and might aswell drink something else.

it wasn't, it's every coffee I've had that had sugar on it since then, mostly happens when the coffee machine in my uni fucks up and puts sugar anyway

>>7038716
when you mix coffee and sugar you dont gat coffee taste+sugar taste, it's like thy mix to create a new flavour, it's that that sickens me

>Is there any particular thing I should start with, or look out for, or avoid?

Stay away from coffee that comes from a can or some sort of round container. (Only exception being a tightly sealed can containing coffee beans.)

>What about flavoured coffees

Chances are you will have a bad reaction to the bitter taste of black coffee. Flavored coffee is still bitter and it won't taste like hazelnut no matter what the can or bag tells you.

>milk/cream/sugar

The pleb thing to do with your coffee unless you're having an espresso-based drink: latte, cappuccino, mocha, flat white, etc.

There's a likelihood that other people in your group will do this too. Be ready for a good sugar crash if sweeten.

Everytime I drink coffee I get a bloated stomach, endless gas, and diarrhea.

feels sad manilow

This.

The Aeropress is so based and costs around $20. Better than a moka pot or french press and so easy to clean.

Hey OP, if you don't like it you don't have to force yourself.

That being said, I forced myself to drink black coffee so I could stay up and play videogames as a kid,, so before I knew it, I started liking it.

Not everybody likes coffee. Personally for hot drinks, I prefer english breakfast tea with some milk. Nice and mellow, plus it doesn't give me the shits or make me hyper.

I like my coffee cold with milk and sugar. Typically the stuff they sell at cafes or whatever as 'iced coffee' is pretty decent. Starbucks plain iced coffee isn't bad either.

Hot coffee can be really bitter and gross. Order a latte which is like 50% milk and typically not too bitter, add sugar if needed.

I would avoid instant coffee or bad coffee from diners, etc. as they tend to taste like shit

I agree, and I think that applies to shit coffee too. If I make a french press way too strong or I happen to have cream that needs to be used, I'll add a dash of milk or cream, but I've never added sugar to coffee. I wanna try Middle Eastern style coffee with sugar and cardamom though.
>>
Try brewing it pour-over or French press style.

just keep drinking it. you'll either develop a taste for it or you'll become addicted and get withdrawals when you don't drink it, in which you'll develop stockholm syndrome and learn to like it. ;^)
if you need training wheels, like cream and sugar, for a while that's fine too.
>>
You like it or you don't, you don't "learn" to like it

I used to hate the lattes my mom would sometimes let me take sips of when I was younger, tasted awful, never wanted to drink coffee, never did

Got to college, had some coffee there just for the hell of it, absolutely loved it, no learning process needed

>>

but that's just not true. especially for coffee
>>
>>7039893
Except it is

Do you think your body is seriously simplistic as "if I try it enough times, I"ll magically start appreciating it?"

No, of course not, that's absolutely absurd

I went from not liking coffee at all when I was younger to instantly liking it the first time I had it when I was a young adult

"Learning" to like coffee is just dulling your sense of its taste if anything, not actually appreciating it

Its like how people say beer is an acquired taste, it simply is not, you mature to like more bitter things naturally, and you either genetically like it or don't, you can force yourself to palate it all you want, that's not acquiring a taste as much as it is forcing yourself to palate it
>>
>>7039917
>"if I try it enough times, I"ll magically start appreciating it?"
that's literally how it works desu senpai
>>
>>7039893

signed.

Coffee was shit tier until I started university. I forced myself to drink it, because I wasn't getting enough sleep and wasn't functioning properly, and coffee fixed that.

Now I'm a grade A addict, and probably couldn't stop even if I made a concentrated effort. I genuinely enjoy the taste, although the dose I get in the morning doesn't give me that perk I used to get from drinking it.
>>
>>7039917
>Do you think your body is seriously simplistic as "if I try it enough times, I"ll magically start appreciating it?"

Yes. It really does work that way. I'm not saying that's the only way to appreciate a new food, but that method certainly does work.

I remember reading a blog about two foreigners wanting to eat natto while visiting Japan. They both hated it on their first try, but decided to force themselves to eat some every day. Day one involved vomiting and being unable to finish the entire serving. In the middle of week two they were unable to buy any natto for some reason, and were surprised to find themselves craving it.

how does the aeropress impact caffeine content?
I like drip coffee because despite its acidity and bitterness, it allows for inhumane levels of caffeine if u have a cup of coffee from 5 scoops of ground beans.
>>
>>7040348
It doesn't. Don't believe anyone that tells you it makes "near espresso" or a "coffee concentrate"
>>
>>7040369
>>7040348
If you want "smooth" coffee, make cold brew. Please for the love of God do not buy into the AeroPress meme. Just get a regular French Press. Much easier and makes a much better (and stronger) cup.
>>
>>7040317
I don't know, how is it?

Keep wincing while "learning" to "enjoy" your coffee, kid

If you're afraid of looking like a child by ordering a coke while everyone else gets coffee, you should try ordering a nice craft beer. You'll look manly as fuck.

Coffee is for women and hipsters.

>>7041061

Now I'm even more confused by this, "I go somewhere with a group of people for drinks every morning and am pressured into buying something I don't want" deal.

Yeah, a beer first thing in the morning makes more sense than a fucking sugar water...

Artificial cocoa flavor after-taste tastes like coffee to me. So much so as a kid I wouldn't eat chocolate ice cream. I found really good cocoa mix improves the flavor of coffee though. Maybe I'm insane

>implying a long black or americano is better than an espresso shot

Ditch the sugar, I was not a big fan of coffee until I stopped adding sugar to it, same goes for tea. Espresso has a sharp flavour, which is natural since it is a focused hit. I find that watered down version of that just accentuates the bad parts and makes it take longer to drink. So lose the long blacks, try a latte. A good latte too, not one from a gas station, any cafe or decent restaurant will have a proper setup to make a good coffee. The difference is like buying a burger from truck stop and one from a restaurant.

>>
>>7040391

You are unbelievably retarded.

I drank scotch many times before I started to enjoy it. Now I never don't have a bottle around. Same with beer and coffee for me. Some will like it faster than others, but you can absolutely condition yourself to appreciate something.

The only things that are immediately good in life is pleb shit.
