Would you drink day old coffee?

post #1 of 87
Thread Starter 
Every morning dh makes a fresh pot of coffee. He dumps out yesterday's coffee, reguardless of how much is in the pot.

If I get up before him, I'll just pour it into a cup, put it in the microwave and reheat it, so he won't waste it. I don't think its bad, its tastes fine to me. Its JUST coffee, it might be a bit strong, I just add extra creamer.

Does anyone else do this?? Or am I just being REALLY frugal?? LOL

I'm not a huge coffee drinker and believe that with enough sugar you can make anything taste better, lol, so I wouldn't have problems with it

Now that bonus son is drinking coffee, we don't have any left to warm up

I like to wake up every morning to the smell of fresh coffee, so I make mine fresh, using my coffee pot with the timer set to wake me up at 5:30

But I use to drink a cup, left over from that morning, when I got home from work in the evenings.

Dh does it quite often. Sometimes I will have a cup, so he always makes enough for both of us. No point dumping perfectly good coffee if we have a microwave.

We do it all the time. We used to be coffee snobs - bought only whole beans, kept them in the freezer, ground them every day. Now we're old and lazy and, honestly, I taste no difference. We also sometimes pour it off & put in the fridge & use it for iced coffees, mocha shakes in the summer, or to add into brownies or chocolate cake mix.

Yuck, no way would I drink it after it has been left in the pot all night. I think it's gross.

No way.
After that long, the oils have separated from the water - you can see a film on top, and no amount of heating or stirring will force them to recombine properly. Not only does it look nasty, it tastes nasty.
