How do you like your coffee, DL?

Black , with cream , with cream and sugar, with just sugar, with what exactly? Where do you like to drink it? When do you like to drink it? Mornings only in order to wake up? At night to relax? All day long to stay alert and wired to get through the work day? Have you switched over to decaff yet? Do you enjoy coffee shops? Yes, I asked so many questions.

A couple of mugs with cream and sugar in the morning. I rarely drink any after that.

Kicking Horse or Lavazza black. Better quality coffee doesn't need anything added to it.

I don't know why drinking coffee with cream never took off in the UK like it did in the US. I just have semi-skimmed milk and a teaspoon of either sugar or a flavoured syrup in mine at home.

One (maybe two...) cups in the morning, made with Breville Espresso Machine. Lots of teamed 2% milk. 1 sugar cane sugar cube.

I drink two or three cups everyday. Usually cappuccino with thick thick froth and a pinch of cinnamon, sometimes I'll pour some Baileys.

by Anonymousreply 10November 24, 2021 5:11 PM

Black with Sweet & Low. Two cups every morning. I used to use a French press until I read that the oils and the sludge that falls to the bottom of the cup is harmful to your health. So I switched to an Aeropress coffee maker. Simple, easy cleanup, and makes a very tasty cup of coffee.

Black, like the poster above said - I want to *taste* the actual coffee. If I wanted "hot chocolate", I'd make that instead. Cream and sugar in coffee has always been a head scratcher for me...It's how our parents used to flavor it when we were little and curious about what the grown ups were drinking with dessert.

A drop of half and half, but just a tiny drop because l want it searing hot like Miranda Priestly.

She's head barista at Starbucks, naturally. Requests for milk or cream are scorned.

I don't use pods at home but I've tried them at work and in hotel rooms. The plain black, unflavored coffee tastes off, regardless of which blend I select. Does anyone who uses pods regularly think the taste is preferable to other coffee delivery methods?

One Keurog cup a day, 2/3 coffee & 1/3 1% milk, one tsp of sugar. I used to do 3 tsp plus creamer X 3 cups a day, yikes!

[bold]Black , with cream , with cream and sugar, with just sugar, with what exactly?[/bold]

1st cup: with heavy cream and Vit D3+Magnesium+Omega-3

2nd cup: black, or cinnamon, or cinnamon and clove

No sugar, no xylitol, no erythritol, no agave syrup, no sweetener period.

[bold]Where do you like to drink it?[/bold]

Right now, in my residence. The pandemic saved me $800/year in 'foofy' coffees and baked goods and tips and 100 hours of crossword and pencil puzzle solving. In olden times, at a counter in conversation with fellow coffeehouse regulars.

[bold]When do you like to drink it? Mornings only in order to wake up?[/bold]

Yes. Coffee is my go juice.

[bold]Do you enjoy coffee shops?[/bold]

I do. The ones that let fully vaccinated people up-to-date on their shots in to enjoy their coffees without staining their fabric mouth-covers. I wish there were coffee bars where one could walk up to an order window facing the sidewalk where I am. I would happily patronize those establishments.

I also, on occasion, prepare Turkish coffee for myself, with either cardamom powder or orange flower water.

The only time I have coffee is when I go out to eat for dinner.

Decaf, with 3 sugars and 2 half-and-half.

by Anonymousreply 31November 24, 2021 6:52 PM

Light with half and half, no sugar. I loathe it with plain milk and will go without if milk is the only option.

One cup, if that, per day. I drink herbal teas quite often now.

I work remote, so drink it at my desk.

Have only been to drive thru coffee places since Spring of 2020, and that's okay. Never was big on a coffee run every day.

I worked in a small town coffee/ice cream shop when I was in high school. It had morning regulars who annoyed the shit out of me then, but I now see what a cool thing it was to have a place to hang. This was in the 80s way before Starbucks everywhere was a thing.

I have cut down to 2 very large mugs a day (from 4 or 5). My favorite brand is cafe bustello. My favorite way to have it is with peppermint mocha non dairy creamer but that's ridiculous so my usual coffee is with a splash of half and half and a quarter teaspoon of sugar.

If I am really feeling like enabling my ridiculousness I will add half and half and a splash of torani syrup, usually salted caramel or mint chocolate.

Bialetti 6-cup moka pot (the cup sizes are for demitasse). Pre-ground light- or medium-roast coffee. Half 'n' half and cane sugar. Two pots (two mugs).

Usually black, old school filter/drip. If I feel the need to add something to it, half & half. Milk is fine for tea, but it's too watery for coffee. I feel pretty shit if I can't get it in the morning. Four cups a day is the usual. I try not to drink it too late but I'm not always good about keeping to that.

22 oz. mug of black, dark roast in the morning. First thing I do after letting the dogs out and sitting their food bowls down.

Black double Americano when I reach my office (and cappuccino machine).

Thirty years ago I was at a dinner party hosted by an eldergay. Many of his best dishes were depression era. His go-to dessert in summer was a large scoop of vanilla ice cream sprinkled with a spoonful of fresh ground coffee. It's delicious if you like the taste of coffee, as I do.

Wait R59 - so like a spoonful of hot (cold?) coffee, as in the liquid you'd otherwise drink, over the ice cream or he'd sprinkle the actual coffee grinds on the ice cream?
