I wonder why smoking a pipe makes coffee taste so much richer and good? Cigarettes or cigars don't have the same effect in my opinion.

I think it's alchemy. But whatever it is I wholeheartedly agree. There is something magical about a cup of coffee and a nice bowl in the morning. I can't wait until it warms up a bit so I can get back to my morning ritual on the back deck.

I always try to drink something while enjoying a pipe, whether coffee or water. There is definitely a 'more than the sum of its parts' situation.

I beg to differ on cigars not going well with coffee. Give me a strong dark roasted coffee late at night with a strong madura or dark fired stick on a warm night anytime. Or, a light breakfast blend of coffee with a Connecticut.

I like it with pipes also... that's just a given.
Why they go together? Like tobacco, coffee comes in earthy, citrusy, hints of spice, fruity even... lots of flavors that compliment the flavors of different tobaccos.
My other beverage options are usually fruit juices, water, or Mountain Dew. :puffy:

Yep, I like Mountain Dew and homemade limeade with a pipe. As far as alcohol goes I like scotch with a pipe. I usually smoke something little stronger than my daytime OTC with scotch. A strong burley blent like Old Joe Krantz or a balkan like Plum Pudding goes really with a little Johnny Walker or if I'm splurging some Dunhill Nightcap and Glenlivet. I also occasionally smoke a good cigar with scotch. CAO Brazilias are good. I used to love Rocky Patel Edge but the quality of those started to drop. I rarely smoke cigars now because it got to be such a crapshoot as to whether your cigar would be smokable. Many times i have paid ten dollars and up for a premium cigar and the damn thing wouldn't draw or I had to deal with runners. Pipe tobacco is more reliable in my opinion and more economical. But I do like a good cigar sometimes. Maybe I'll try one with a good cup of coffee. Thinking about it now, I never did smoke a cigar with coffee.

I don't drink alcohol, so it's always coffee or Mt Dew for me as well!

Coffee made the cigarette taste better. Pipes make the coffee taste better. I haven't smoked cigarettes in years either. I feel your pain.

I agree. Coffee and pipe tobacco (or cigar) compliment each other well. Lately I've been drinking tea and learning the various tea blends. That also goes great with a pipe, sometimes even better than coffee.

I used to love a good Virginia in the morning with coffee, but currently I'm really loving Prince Albert, Granger or Carter Hall.
In the evening I whiskey in many different forms and I smoke tobacco in many different forms.
During the day, it's water or Red Bull and Codger blend.

Coffee for me, when they thru me out of GA, they took away my Southern card and now I can't even buy Mtn. Dew. Scotch, it is an acquired taste. I have never acquired it. Now give me a good red or port and I'm all over that with an English blend savored real slow.

It works both ways. The pipe makes the coffee better, and the coffee brings out the flavors of the tobacco. I love a pipe and coffee. I also enjoy a pipe with hot tea, or rum.

Unfortunately Can't do without my after dinner whiskeys(scotch, preferably single malts) and pipe / or Cigar.

Btw,now as I'm thinking on pairing a cup of coffee or tea with a pipe can't stop wondering am I supposed to drink this beverage tidy or cold since it won't keep warm during the whole half an hour bowlful

I used to have Dunhill's Early morning pipe whilst I drank my fresh coffee! I should get some more of that one day and go back to it!
