So I was drinking black coffee the other day and my coworker says that's disgusting! I reply, well that's how I like it! The more bitter the better!! She continues with... That's some Boston stuff right there. All y'all like that black coffee. I digress because everyone I know likes it done regular (cream and sugar).

When I think of Black Coffee drinkers I think of Seattle Washington! It fits the vibe. So in this fun little poll, which city do you associate black coffee drinkers with the most? I like these little food polls.. it United us.

So sound off! Which city is the ultimate black coffee drinkers in your mind?

I've always thought of New York as a black-coffee-and-plain-bagel type of town. For Seattle, it's probably more of a "don't ruin the flavor of the coffee with milk" type of mentality though.

May be a bit nitpicky, but I associate Seattle and Portland with espresso, which for the sake of this discussion may be different than a black coffee culture.

A very normal "Dunkies" order in Greater Boston is a "lahge black". Short, straight to the point. No Blonde Roast, no Guatemalan Antigua.

Bill Burr, a Boston native, does a bit about asking a guy if they want a cookie. It's his opinion that asking a guy if they want something sweet, is the equivalent of calling him a p****. Certainly don't agree with that thought or the broader masculine ideology, but it doesn't mean the hard hat, middle class Bostonians don't. And somehow, I think that may play into this discussion.

Now that I think about it, this is the type stuff that makes me miss Chicago....

Definitely Los Angeles. Like #1 because it is a daytime city that likes to sleep early and get up early, get a cup of black coffee, and work hard as the early bird does. other cities are lame. They love adding so much sugar and creamer flavors. LA is too healthy, vegan, kale eaters, no sugar no fat. Just plain black healthy coffee.

LOL please tell me you're joking... "Other cities are lame" seriously? Los Angeles despite what you may THINK is no better than ANY of the other cities listed here. It's time to come off of your high horse.

Los Angeles are health nuts going on about the gluten free diet and almond milk, acai bowls, omega 3, beyond beef, kale salads, avocado toasts, tofu burgers. Always showing off their runyon or hollywood sign hike sweats, # hashtagging their gym summer bodies in February and how weather is so great with their sunny runs along the Santa Monica beach or #hardbutworthit as they climb up steep stairs. So many are so fit compared to other cities where many people are lame, weak, injured from not exercising as much. LAME cities cuz they dont work out all year round. LA bars close at 2am and actually not a big nightlife city overall, thats because they wake up early, drink their health black coffee because they love it so much. Then go for a morning run or workout before work as the black coffee colon cleanses and helps with the cardiovascular system. Look up the health benefits of black coffee. So healthy like the health nuts of Los Angeles.
There is a reason why commercials for black coffee like Folgers are made in Los Angeles studios. The best part of waking up is folgers in your cup. Other lame cities are like, no I want to sleep for 1 more hour, I got a hangover, blah blah.

San Diego can be part of the health nuts but since it is smaller than LA, I voted LA.
