So do you like more about christmas coffee than about regular coffee.

Whats christmas coffee? How does it differ from regular coffee? Well dear pit monkeys, Christmas coffee tastes like regular coffee but with a hint of cianmon.

You made up Christmas coffee and regular coffee is better anyway.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

Tea all the way
or for a festive drink, Mulled Wine.
or maybe hot chocolate :P

This. Any evidence to the contrary is obviously fabricated. Christmas coffee is like Santa - It doesn't exist.

Fuck this thread.

I think I've tried it about 2 years ago. It was alright, but it was no hanukkah coffee.

If you need a "seasonal" kind of coffee in order to enjoy it, you don't enjoy coffee.

No tea after 12? What kind of communist regime do you live under?


Coffee is nasty anyway. But cinnamon is the best spice. Though probably not in tea.
#17
just regular dark black coffee please. Occasionally a dab of maple syrup or a small spoon of sugar is ok too

Do you know why cinnamon is connected to Christmas?

I dont know but i am gonna make a very wild guess. Santas wife baked cinamon rolls for santa and elfs for food etc...

Yea, i know its really far fetched.

Nope, the word 'Christ' (which is Greek for 'Messiah') means 'anointed one' and it relates to anyone anointed to be king of the Kingdom of Irael.
Jesus was considered by many as the rightful king and also the 'prophecised' Messiah, the king who would effectively convert the whole world to Judaism, hence him being known as Jesus 'Christ' and the celebration of his birth being known as 'Christmas'

To 'anoint' someone means to pour annointing oil on them as part of a ritual, in this case the ritual of declaring someone as king, and in The Bible Moses is commanded by God to use 'sweet cinnamon' in the recipie for making holy annointing oil, otherwise known as 'Chrism'.
This is why during the Middle Ages, when cinnamon was becoming more available in Europe, people started to use it as a flavouring in Christmas recipies.

The recipie also contains something called 'Keneh Bosem' which has been identified by many Biblical scholars as being 'cannabis' and it is added in equal amounts to the recipie as cinnamon, so by rights, we should also be traditionaly using cannabis in our Christmas recipies.

Ever heard of Kopi Luwak? It's the most expensive coffee in the world and it's made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by civets, then passed through their digestive tract.

Yup, it's civet shit.

I had, but I thought it was a myth though.

Coffee is weird in that you have to 'get used to' the taste. Only comparable thing I can think of (off the top of my head) that is similar in having to get used to it is alcohol , and I actually remember finding my first beer and whisky quite nice though.

I can assure you it's quite true. But there is research being carried out to imitate the taste of kopi luwak without the civet's involvement because of the decrease in civet population.

Decrease due to environmental or other causes?

Hmm, well I grew up on unsweetened because my parents thought sugar was evil for most of my childhood, but even that, you can end up liking it after a sucking a few pieces.

Edit: nevermind I'll do some quick wiki research civet population

edit2: usual stuff, loss of habitat, hunting for musk glands/fur.

It is because of the bitter taste?

We naturaly have an aversion to bitter tasting things because poisonous substances often taste bitter, but like theguitarist just said, it's weird because bitter flavours are often something that we become accustomed, and even addicted to.

This is possibly because many poisons can have a stimulant effect in small doses.

Native Indonesians hunting them for meat apparently is the main cause. I suppose we can also add loss of habitat to that too.

I remember reading an article about bitterness, and it was suggested there's a neurological pleasure element to bitter tastes despite our natural aversion to it. Also there was a psychological element of enduring and overcoming the bitter taste, which was discussed through the example of a trend in US microbreweries to make increasingly bitter beers. I can't remember all of the article off the top of my head (was probably a new scientist one), but it's surprising how many bitter foods we consume and enjoy. There was also something about being predisposed to actually liking bitter tastes, which makes sense when you meet some people who hate coffee, tea & beer. Thinking about it, people I know who don't like those drinks & those who can't stand tea/coffee black also tend to dislike dark chocolate.

Do you get a headache from any other hot beverage?

Yeah, I think I may have read the same (or at least a very similar) article, it sounds familiar.

Hmmm, possibly some form of allergy?
Or maybe it's psychosomatic. I don't suppose you were ever hit over the head with a coffee pot as a small child?
