Coffee snob is my title, after refusing to drink Tim Hortons with fellow colleagues (snob is a far cry.....have you ever tried "Tim's" as we Canucks call it?......SBucks seems like heaven comparitively).

;-) I guess it depends - if you are an enthusiast, it sounds like a whole lot more than just liking a good cup of coffee -
*Coffee enthusiast* or *Coffee-lover* works for me!
How about *Coffeaholic* for the heavy drinker? ;-)
But if it is the technique rather, depending on what you like it would be an *Amateur barista* or *Coffee chemist*, right?
One difficulty with the question is that it sounds valid but really is general, in my opinion.
But hypocritically, I have used the term Coffeaphile among friends to describe the romantic notion that of a race of coffee-lovers independent of language (well, latinized, anyway). Who knows - maybe it will catch on!!!
PS, snob isn't my cup of tea but I'd get all proud if someone called me a *coffee connoisseur*, which would imply to me a discriminating palate rather than snobbery.

I like the sound of 'coffee connoisseur', sounds very classy for my liking. But for strange reason, I also like the term 'caffeine head', which somehow reminds me of this funny Facebook status I had came across: 'I need blood in my caffeine system'.

I like "educated", but sadly, most people call me "obsessed".
