“I like my women like I like my Starbucks. Expensive, bitter and calling me by the wrong name”

"I like my women like I like my coffee” is a meme that has been used on many images. “A Negro comedian pulled this one: ‘I like my coffee strong and black—the same way I like my women’” was cited in the New York (NY) Amsterdam News in July 1944. “Hot..and black, too” was an answer in 1973. “Hot and sweet” was cited in 1974. “Hot, sweet and black” was cited in 1994.

Starbucks coffeehouse is sometimes used in the meme. “I like my women like I like my Starbucks: hot, expensive, and on every street corner” was posted on Twitter by ☣☠☢ on June 4, 2010. “I like my women like I like my Starbucks coffee: big, black, expensive, and with confusing names” was posted on Twitter by Dan Robertson on June 14, 2013. “I like my women like I like my Starbucks. Expensive, bitter and calling me by the wrong name” was posted on Twitter by The Untastic Mr. Fright on October 5, 2019.

“I like my coffee like I like my women” joke variations include “I like my coffee like I like my women. I don’t like coffee,” “I like my coffee like my women. Without a penis,” “I like my coffee like I like my women. In a plastic cup,” “I like my women like I like my coffee. Ground up and in the freezer,” “I like my women like I like my coffee. Hot and on my lap” and “I like my women how I like my laptop. On my lap, turned on and virus free.”
