Coffee that's been all gussied up with fancy stuff can smell alright. Most of it just smells like self-hatred, the stink of people that don't want to be where they are, when they are, distilled into a slurry of stimulants and shitty bean tea. It's mildly depressing, tbh :-\

Dunno what the taste is like, really, though. Been long enough I've forgotten and it smells too bad to try anymore, nevermind other issues with it. I tried coffee at some point in my youth and was just "holy fuck the caffeine isn't worth this when there's leaf tea and soda" and never looked back. By the time I was 25 or so I'd sworn off drinking caffeine at all, ha (the first week of that was hell. The second or third was better than I'd been in years). Get a bit from chocolate occasionally, but that's all, been cutting back on that, too.

Coffee [...] Most of it just smells like self-hatred, the stink of people that don't want to be where they are

That's the point, bub.
*takes a long drag off my coffeecup*
That's always been the point.

The coffee smell grosses me out. But I've heard many people say they like the smell... is that some type of double-think, or do they really like it?

I honestly can't believe there's people who dislike the smell of coffee. You have to be making this shit up.

The smell is the best part. Coffee never tastes as well as it smells. You weird noseless mutant you.

I mean, you're not wrong. The smell is indeed the best part, and coffee does tend to taste worse than it smells (least from what little I remember and what folks generally say).

It's just that that changes nothing about my previous post :P

Ahem.. scented coffee tastes worse than it smells.

I personaly like my coffee plain, no sugar, no milk/cream and no added flavours (hazelnuts, caramel etc) and I find both its smell and taste quite comforting, especially if i'm drinking it hot. Having said that, I agree with dragdeler, I hate the culture of drinking coffee at work and if they are going to waste my time, I'd rather sip my coffee in peace, at home and with no one over my head.

Dear meatbags,
while I am in no way offended by your deadly sins, they are not an all-you-can-eat buffet.
Your excessive gluttony is giving me diaboletes, and I am getting tired of shooting my veins full of insolence instead of using it to torture your eternally damned souls.
What's worse, the magnitude of your greed is threatening to destroy your planet, and with it, my continued influx of new sinners. Bad for business, that's what it is.
So please, you fat cows, could you attempt some moderation with the materialistic components of worshipping me?

Kind regards, your buddy, Satan.

Dear Satan,

if you can't keep up with the simple demand of securing new stream of customers sinners, we will be forced to find a new fallen angel to worship.

Regards,
The sinner lobby

Dear sinner lobby,

I didn't fall. I was pushed.
