"Did you mean coconut milk? Coconut oil is like lard. I'm not sure I would want a spoonful of that in my coffee."
Nope, meant oil. Stuff turns liquid if you hold the jar long enough, it sits on top of the coffee and the little grounds get suspended in it. Makes Burley nuttier and my stems shiny.

I had no idea that it had a flavor. Ha ha, and I've been cooking with it for months in my fried chicken and fish. I may have to freak my wife out by eating it while cooking.

If you want something to eat get pure creamed coconut, Asian market should have it. It's a solid brick of pressed coconut for cooking, sometimes I break a piece off. The oil on it's own has a really light flavor that would easily be lost on fried catfish.

My first smoke of the day tends to be one of the stronger blends in my little assortment such as Dark Flake, Westmorland Slices, Condor Flake, Irish Flake etc as if I try a milder or 'smoother' blend such as FVF, St. James Flake, Golden Glow etc I don't get the full range of gentler flavours.
Why this is the case I really don't know but it's possibly because I am drinking white coffee made with much milk :roll:
Regards,
Jay.

It's always Burley and black coffee of some combo for me.

Today is Watch City Slices in an MM Country Gent with Ethiopian coffee made strong.

Likewise for me: a burley blend and coffee. I usually have a morning smoke on weekends and vacations; not weekdays. Today it's C&D Haunted Bookshop and a strong coffee with a little half-and-half.

My morning is usually a lighter fair such as Early Morning Pipe, or Picadilly and black coffee. That's if I'm doing office time, if I'm in the workshop in the morning, it's something heaver like Vintage Syrian.

I have an old Kaywoogie Bulldog, one of the first pipes I got, the same pipe I used when I got my first tin of EMP, one day about half way through that tin I left them on the kitchen counter, next morning I got up and went for a cup of coffee and there they sat, a union was borne. For the last 12 years I get up and have EMP in my "Morning Woodie" with a pot of Maxwell House Coffee

I am assuming burley is the popular choice for the nic hit?
Not for me ... it's the nutty/sweet/cocoa flavors that compliment coffee so well.

The hit of Thor's Hammer Snuff as I walk into work is ALL about the nic, though. :D

On weekends Dunhill EMP with a black coffee or tea, on weekdays after dropping the wifey to the work, on my way to the office I smoke whatever I packed the day before, just before going to the bed.
