And maybe some other stuff too, but for now, have one thousand words of coffee.
Well, this wasn't as funny as I thought it would be. But good nonetheless. You have my thumb, if for no reason other than for a pleasant read.
Yeah, I wasn't really going for a funny spin, though I can see how it'd be possible.
Wow with this short slice of life well written I wonder what you can do with long time fics.....
Golden Delicious, I guess that your coffee was too strong, bitter, and/or there wasn't enough sugar in your coffee.
I don't like too strong coffee. But I like not strong and not too much bitter coffee with sufficient amount of sugar.
That, my friend, is fully possible xD
Okay, I officially overuse that smiley.
A nice quick story. I love it. I wish I could love coffee though.
Applejack Daniels with Dash.
Damn, now im in the mood for coffee.
I didn't think it was actually possible to be poetic about something so simple as a cup of coffee, but you sir have opened my eyes. Well done!
That was my goal xD
Wow....twilight sure loves her coffee
Very nicely written fic. Like someone else said, practically poetic about something so magical yet mundane as a morning cup of coffee. I hope this continues.
I registered to this site just to say I love this story. So yeah, can't wait to see more akin to this.
Despite not drinking coffee at all, I find this pleasing. Kind of like the smell of coffee.
I, personally favour my coffee black as tar and strong enough to stand a spoon in, but too each their own. Ah, Blessed, Blessed Caffeine...
Unless Pinkie Pie wants some. then it's decaff. All the way.
Pro Tip: Don't start sentences with "and" if you can help it. It's in the rules; it says so in the book.
I'm a bit disappointed in Twilight's choice of brewing methods here. First off, the best coffee comes from fresh-ground beans. Pre-ground beans lose their flavor much more quickly, even when stored in a sealed bag or container. Then there's the brewing itself. Drip coffee is only decent at best, when made with a really expensive, high-end machine. The cheap machines are usually downright awful and burn the coffee.
For the connoisseur, there are two well-established methods for brewing coffee, with a third method having popped up more recently. There are of course a multitude of other processes out there that are rather extravagant and very expensive, but these three are affordable and still provide some of the best results:
Siphon Brew / Vac Pot was one of the earliest methods of brewing coffee, and is still one of the best. Many consider it to be the gold standard. However, the size of the brewer determines the number of cups made, and you cannot make any more or less than what it was designed for. Most models I've seen range from 3, 5, 8, or 12 cups. It also requires the user to pay a bit more attention.
French Press, another long-established method, typically comes in at a very close second. It's a bit less involved, but sediment getting into the coffee can sometimes be a bit of an issue.
Aeropress is the new kid on the block, and is somewhat similar to the French Press. Some folks are of the opinion that the resulting coffee is even better than the Siphon Brewing method.
One of the essential factors here is that the water is just below boiling before coming into contact with the grounds; this allows for maximum flavor extraction, and the reason for this is rooted in some fundamental principles in chemistry regarding molecular behavior and heat energy. This same rule, that water should be just below boiling, also applies to tea, and just about anything else that gets mixed with hot water; just a heads up for Rarity's fic.
That said, you admitted to not being a coffee drinker, so I'm not surprised you wouldn't have been aware of any of this. *dons hipster glasses*

Good to know?
I never knew there was so much to learn about coffee.
Coffee, the thing that moves me in the morning when my mind is clouded by sleep and my body is still not fully operational.
Love the stuff. writing this when i just woke up, i didn't had my coffee, i don't have anymore it really is the worst possible thing EVER.
Um..machine coffe? Those sux.
The best way is still the good old one, where you just make it yourself. Only machine I use is to freshly grind the coffe beans (or I use the grinded mix from previous evening).
you could make a sequel with spike
