How do you like your coffee?

90% cream and sugar 10% coffee? Black or with just sugar/sweetner?
I personally drink it straight black :-\

      down to one a morning now; just a big T of raw sugar- that's all

    2. I like it really strong, nearly espresso-like. The beans have to be freshly roasted and freshly ground. I prefer a dark roast, but am certainly partial to some mediums as well. I like lots of cream (more in a dark roast, less in a medium), no sugar. For evening coffee, I sometimes add some honey.

        same as you BBL but no honey in evening coffee. Coffee for me has gotta be strong and creamy. I am fussy about temperature too it's got to be just short of very hot and not yet lukewarm.

          Yes! Hot, but not too hot, is ideal, although I tend to drink mine slow in the morning and it usually goes colder than I'd like before I'm done. My boyfriend likes his scalding hot. I don't know how he drinks it without burning his mouth.

      2. My coffee is simple, 1/2 coffee, 1/2 milk (hot or cold) ; with sugar to taste (depending on the quality of the coffee and milk) As far as I remember, I've always had coffee like that.

        The exception is espresso, plain with 1 sugar cube (or equivalent).

        1. A little bit of half-and-half (or cream) in hot coffee. Skim milk in iced.

          1. I have become such a coffee creamer snob that I bring my own to work, or anywhere I'll be for more than a day, like vacation or a road trip. It's the So Delicious coconut coffee creamer, hazelnut flavor. I got hooked on it when I had to go dairy-free while BFing my baby, and never wanted to stop using it afterwards. It doesn't have trans fats or corn syrup or anything nasty in it. I put about 1 Tbs in a 12 oz cup of coffee.
