How Do You Drink Your Coffee?

At almost 33 years old...I'm JUST starting to drink coffee. Working two jobs...ya gotta stay alert. I take mine with Splenda, and a touch of heavy cream.

Oh yeah...at home at night...I'll take a good decaf with a little Bailey's Irish Cream and Jameson Whiskey.

With powdered non-dairy creamer and Torani's sugarfree syrup (Hazelnut or White Chocolate). If I take coffee in a thermos I just drink it straight. Before I had to limit my sugar I used to put hot chocolate in it.

Mudbug I knew I liked you for a reason (ok actually a million reasons) :)

When I started drinking coffee I would take it with extra cream and extra sugar. It was more like a coffee milkshake. After I got used to that, I cut our the cream and just used sugar. Not long after that I went black. Once I did this I was finally able to taste what the coffee tasted like.

aw shucks, geebs, that's nice!

I just don't like sweet drinks much. And I agree that coffee should taste like coffee, not coffee-flavored "something else."

i like my coffee like i like my women (no, not black and strong, sorry choc :D ), but rather petite and italian. the only coffee i will occasionally drink is espresso. can't stand regular coffee. my brother used to hold me down and breathe bad morning (before brushing teeth) and coffee breath in my face when i was a kid, so i can't stand the smell of coffee and cream. but, for some odd reason, i like the slight bitterness of espresso, especially with a little something sweet after a big meal...

Me, too. And I like mine strong, with an attitude! Ever try Louisiana's chicory? Geez, that's good!

With milk. I always drank it black until my third pregnancy. No explanation, it's just the way it is.

Dutch coffee is nice and strong, but not as strong as espresso. We have a Senseo coffee machine. I think they are available in The States. It leaves a kind of creamy layer across the top. Delicious!

Most of the time with milk, 1/2 & 1/2, or a flavored creamer, but if I'm really tired & just not "with it" I drink it black.

But of course, dahling. I ask mom to bring me up a can every time she visits. I can take a little less "attitude" in my coffee, but I love the chicory flavor.
