I like my coffee strong, black, and hot. I prefer the darker roasts. I drink quite a bit in the morning,
but rarely after lunch. I don't care for coffee with any meal other than breakfast. Occasionally I order espresso after dinner.
I usually buy Peet's, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Seattle's Best, or Starbucks, whichever is on sale at the supermarket. I buy ground coffee because I'm too lazy to clean the grinder. I don't find all that much difference between pre-ground and whole beans if the coffee is stored properly once the bag is opened (in a large baggie in the freezer).
I think I'm drinking Peet's French Roast this morning (the original bag is gone). There's also some unopened Seattle's Best and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in the pantry, both French Roast.
As for "coffee" with whipped cream, caramel syrup, and other adulterants, those drinks make me feel ill
-- they're milkshakes masquerading as coffee, with up to 750 calories, 119 grams of sugar, and 25 grams of fat each, according to Starbucks' website. That's not a drink, it's a meal, and not a particularly healthful one at that. It's OK as an occasional treat, but I know too many people who have one every day and then wonder why they gain weight.
