'Can I get 20 creams and 10 sugars?': 25 Coffee drinks so strong and sugary that they could propel you into outer space

'Can I get 20 creams and 10 sugars?': 25 Coffee drinks so strong and sugary that they could propel you into outer space

Once you work at a restaurant that serves coffee, you realize just how weirdly people take their morning beverage — loaded up with creamer, sugar, and flavoring. When I worked at a restaurant, I always was weirded out by people who would order a small coffee, and then add 10 sugars, 15 creams, and 5 pumps of flavor. It would cost extra money , and there would be literally a tablespoon of coffee in the drink after adding all that other stuff. But there were regulars who ordered their drinks like…

'Two cups... made me transcend the space-time continuum': Guy shares his TIFU learning moment, says it was a 'terrible discovery'

'Two cups... made me transcend the space-time continuum': Guy shares his TIFU learning moment, says it was a 'terrible discovery'

Breakfast time is not the best time for kitchen experiments, as one unfortunate dude learned the hard way. As he shared in a r/TIFU (today I f***** up) post that gained thousands of comments, he shared his brewing experience with us, so that we may absorb his wisdom. Basically, the OP did a lot of research on coffee, and kind of fell down a rabbit hole, leading to them purchasing an expensive new toy to make coffee with. But the OP clearly didn't do quite enough research, as they explain in the…

'My car's double parked and I don't have time to wait': Karen gets roasted like a coffee bean by an off-duty barista

'My car's double parked and I don't have time to wait': Karen gets roasted like a coffee bean by an off-duty barista

There are some moments in life where the stars align and you get to live out your dreams. Such was the case for one off-duty barista. As the OP shared, she had a day off work, and stopped into a coffee location to grab a quick drink. She wasn't alone, there were tons of customers, and the baristas working the restaurant seemed overwhelmed. But does that ever matter to a Karen? No, absolutely not, never ever! But the OP wasn't working, and spotted a chance to get some incredibly satisfying reven…

20 freshly brewed coffee fails that you won't want to sleep through

20 freshly brewed coffee fails that you won't want to sleep through

Coffee is love, coffee is life. For a beverage that is so acidic and low-key tasteless on its own, it's great with some cream or sugar. And it's clearly addicting, because many people drink it every single day. I, too, will continue to drink cold brew (humankind's best invention, don't @ me) every single day . Although there are many failed ways to drink coffee, a few of these are quite innovative , too, like the restaurant who gives out coffee ice cubes in lieu of iced coffee . But TBH, I woul…

Controlling Fiancé Demands Woman Make Her Own Coffee to His Preference, She Returns a Year Later to Tell of the Fallout

We'll start this one off by saying that there's no problem with being particular about one's cup of coffee. But, according to the age-old rule of “staying in your lane”, let other people have theirs how they like it too. It's not up to you to determine what it is that makes someone else happy, even if you feel particularly knowledgeable on that particular subject, you're just going to come accross as a know-it-all douchebag. Screenshots of both threads are attached below the original thread and…
