Coffeestuff: Sweet and Creamy

I ordered two coffees from Dunkin Donuts this morning: a large and an extra-large, both with double cream and double sugar. I watched the girl behind the counter pour a quarter-cup of half-and-half into both cups, then put eight heaping teaspoons of sugar into the large.

Wow, I thought. That’s a lot of sugar.

Then she put ten heaping teaspoons of sugar into the extra-large cup.

The extra-large, of course, was mine. Yes, there was still room for coffee in the cup, but a comment from a co-worker who likened my beverage to a “coffee milkshake” got me wondering if I could convince the Dunkin Donuts/Baskin-Robbins down the street to put three scoops of vanilla ice cream into an extra-large cup and then top it off with coffee.

Or I could just stop drinking coffee altogether.

  1. You and I have nearly the exact same coffee preparation scheme. For me, the coffee experience combines both the acidic tang of the coffee itself, the caffiene buzz, the sugar jump and the carbohydrate fuel of half and half. To me, it is the ultimate Union of Opposites: dark, enlivening coffee and cooling, soothing sweetness, both battling for control.

    I do notice that my mood for the day can possibly be dictated by tasting my coffee….

    At least I only drink one tankard a day.

  2. You know, as much as I might disagree with your regular desecration of the magical java juice. A coffee milkshake sounds frickin’ awesome.

    Apology accepted. 😉

    You are clearly a man of exceptional taste, Sam.

    Now, please don’t take this the wrong way, but I’ve got to ask: how big is your tankard?

  5. I say you just skip the regular coffee altogether and just order a coffee milkshake. If you want it warm, microwave it. 🙂

    I think there’s a trip to the combination Dunkin Donuts/Baskin-Robbins in my future.
