How do you take your coffee?


by Anonymousreply 7506/26/2013

with cream, and occasionally a shot of whiskey

by Anonymousreply 103/12/2013

Either black or with a little honey.

Up my ass, like how I take my men.

In Chicago, regular means black. In The Big Apple, with milk and sugar. Go figure!

Why was there no option for artificial sweetners?

by Anonymousreply 503/12/2013

You are right, R5. I'm so ashamed. Please don't call the Poll Police

With Half and Half and 2 packets of Splenda.

I actually use St. Brenden's Irish Cream instead of creamer. (Not enough to feel any effect of the alcohol.)

by Anonymousreply 803/12/2013

Fresh hot black strong

by Anonymousreply 903/12/2013

Black, with coconut oil.

by Anonymousreply 1003/12/2013

Strong with a splash of half and half.

by Anonymousreply 1103/12/2013

Half coffee, half milk/sugar/creamer whatever. In a pinch I'll just put a lump of ice cream into a half-cup of coffee and let it melt.

by Anonymousreply 1203/12/2013

Grinding and brewing is a waste of time -- I just grab a handful of beans and chew them on the train.

by Anonymousreply 1303/12/2013

I gave up coffee for green tea some years ago. I do still enjoy an iced coffee with a little cream in the summertime

by Anonymousreply 1403/12/2013

I love Cafe Bustelo with a dash of 1% milk. Can't drink any other kind of coffee now.

by Anonymousreply 1503/12/2013

Two of those little creamer tubs (hazlenut if they have it) and two sugars.

R8 i love St Brendans in coffe. I felt so alone before you came along

by Anonymousreply 1703/12/2013

Very strong coffee, with cream (NOT milk) and saccharin (Sweet 'n Lo).

by Anonymousreply 1803/12/2013

Mostly espresso. I drink coffee because I like its aroma and undiluted taste. I can't stand those concoctions with a lot of milk in them; the cups may as well have nipples on them (I'm looking at you, Starbucks!)

by Anonymousreply 1903/12/2013

Two Splendas, no milk or creamer. Sometimes I buy flavored coffee, but I never add flavoring to regular coffee. And I didn't even start drinking coffee until VERY late in life.

by Anonymousreply 2003/12/2013

Black but only because I don't eat dairy (when I did, coffee was nice with a little milk) and because I don't like sweet tea or coffee.

I'm not really a "hipster coffee snob," but it's closer than "tough." And really, how else would you drink coffee?

by Anonymousreply 2203/12/2013

With soy creamer and agave...

I don't drink coffee. I drink decaf tea. Green is my favorite.

Regular coffee, mixed with Bustello with half & half.

Don't have much time in the morning, so I eat a tablespoon of instant coffee washed down with boiling water.

It should say pretentious hipster idiot rather than "coffee snob." And knowing datalounge, I'd say everyone who chose #1 should have chosen #2.

I had surgery in November and couldn't drink coffee for months because it made me sick. I became a huge tea drinker, especially green tea. I felt great and I didn't miss the coffee. Then a couple of weeks ago, I tried a cup of coffee and it made me feel so alive and awake that I have had two cups every day since. I don't know if I should continue or stop now, before I get addicted again.

Does anyone have any tips on what to add to make instant coffee taste more bearable? I try adding 3 teaspoons of Cremora to it, but it still tastes vile. The only reason I drink it is to wake me up.

by Anonymousreply 3903/12/2013

With 2 packets of Truvia and lots of International Delight Hazelnut Creamer. It's delicious.

by Anonymousreply 4003/12/2013

R40 And what kind of instant coffee do you use?

by Anonymousreply 4103/12/2013

I like my coffee black, just like my metal.

by Anonymousreply 4203/12/2013

Not instant. I buy organic hazelnut flavored beans and ground them.

It took me a loooong time before I figured out how to solve my coffee getting cold after I put milk in it.

Duh! Super duh! Now just 30 seconds of microwaved milk makes my coffee stay hot.

I'm also a milk and sweet n low person.

by Anonymousreply 4503/12/2013

Black....wait for it: like my men and my moods! Jimmy, give me a rim shot! I drank coffee black for about 20 years. Lately, I've added a teaspoon of International Delight flavored creamer. It replicates a cafe mocha drink I liked at a local coffeehouse. Can't afford, nor want to drive, to go out for coffee everyday after being laid off, so the creamer helps. I still drink coffee straight black when I'm at friend' homes, visiting offices.

Medaglia d'Oro is the only instant coffee I've found potable.

by Anonymousreply 4903/12/2013

I can't believe so many people are still using Aspartame ( Sweet n low, diet soda ect..).

That stuff has been proven time and again to be dangerous. The only reason it got approved by the FDA was because of, get this, Donald Rumsfeld.

Almost all independent studies have shown that this not only makes you crave more sweets, thus making you fatter, but it is extremely dangerous with long term use for almost every part of your body including your brain. Google Aspartame and it should scare you away.

Just use sugar.

OP, I think you know there's only one answer to your question:

by Anonymousreply 5103/12/2013

Cream, no fucking milk.

You always need an other option on polls with limited choices.

[quote]Does anyone have any tips on what to add to make instant coffee taste more bearable?

Yes. Throw that shit away and go to Starbucks. Or buy a coffee maker. Cheap ones can be had for $20. Or a French Press, those are even cheaper and easier to clean.

I'll never understand how someone can drink instant coffee. Maybe if you're on a deserted island or in the military and deployed god knows where. But otherwise, why would you? Brewed coffee, even cheap shit like Folgers, is infinitely better.

by Anonymousreply 5403/13/2013

...and I will never understand how anyone can drink that burned swill that Starbucks serves.

by Anonymousreply 5503/13/2013

R43 "Hazelnut" (or any other pussified cherry banilla swiss almond "flavor") is a crime against coffee and a crime against taste. You should be prosecuted, not standing around here bragging about your bad taste.

Seriously, I would have a hard time having a hazelnut coffee drinker as a friend. I can hardly think of anything more MARY!

Try the mirror, R56.

At home I drink espresso, brewed in a Bialetti Moka pot, which I drink black without sweetener. At work, I drink coffee, which I also drink black no sugar. Been drinking it that way for as long as I've been drinking coffee.

I do enjoy plain black coffee if it is done really well (at a cafe or coffee house) and normal coffee with some really good irish coffee thingy (Baileys, e.g.), some warmed milk, some cocoa and a lil sugar to round it off

I converted from aspartame to regular sugar a few years ago. The studies freak me out. All of that artificial stuff was made by a chemist and it seems like much of it ended up being accidental discovery after trying to make something deadly. You know, like they were trying to make a chemical weapon and discovered the residual dust was two times sweeter than real sugar. And, like any mad scientist, the chemist consumed it until someone came along and said "we could market this!"

I will take the calorie hit from sugar, thanks.

I quit my AM caffeinated coffee about six months ago, and within the last three months I've nearly quit the AM coffee altogether. Caffeine is really an addictive drug, and it's really nice being off the stuff. Besides, my kitchen counter is a lot cleaner...

I do feel a little bit lethargic at times, yet my road rage has diminished almost entirely.

With cream and honey.

by Anonymousreply 7406/26/2013

When you say 'creamer', what do you mean? In Australia it's milk or soy only. Unless you're being decadent and have full cream in it, but that's not an option available in cafes.
