yeah it really depends. ive never seen coffee in the hands of car owners as a whole, maybe just 1% or 2%. it's usually the spectators (aka the non-fat wives that are holding starbucks cups) that are drinking coffee.

we have food trucks, that serve coffee. but people are mostly stuffing their faces with the dozen mini-donuts.

i brought coffee once and promptly spilled it onto my alcantara center console. it's more of a menace than mustang burnout/crashes or the parts falling off the cars from the nissan 240sx club!!

The 'coffee' is a colloquialism for these things being held primarily in the morning, and at places open during that time that are historically vehicle-friendly: coffee shops, donut shops, and the like.

When motorcyclists gather for them, there is typically much, much, much more coffee involved because most are going for an hours-long backroads ride afterward.

I would finish the coffee before pealing off.

Indeed. Although this was more of a case of improper lid attachment than too much horse powers. Still a dumb dumb move...

Only if you're driving JDM, either car or bike. Owners of Euro marques still prefer the kick of an espresso.

My cars and coffee is located between 3 coffee shops and a Panera.

People can be seen with coffee cups but from my eating in Panera it appears most eat/drink then go look at cars.

Do they still have it? I was under the impression that Irvine Cars & Coffee was discontinued.
