The local cafe, Sour Grape, has two types of coffee I love. I order White Russian flavoured coffee beans by the pound and also, this house blend called 'Cozy Winter's Night' which has a lovely flavour to it. I put a small bit of raw sugar and a bit of milk in mine. I love that stuff!

I almost never drink coffee any more, but when I did, black & strong!

Weekends we drink a pot of black coffee brewed from beans purchased at Costco. They carry a blend by Starbucks that is blended for our local store. Weekdays I drink the "tennis shoe swill" at work! Lol!
Actually it's not that bad, it's a French roast we get from Farmer Bros. (delivered). Just have to drink from a fresh pot! Anyway, no sugar or cream for me unless I get an afternoon latte ;-)

You made me think of the whiskey "Old Tennis Shoes" 'Guaranteed four months old, very cheap' on sale at Lee Chong's that was a favourite among Steinbeck's 'Cannery Row' locals.

I love black coffee. Usually I will have a latte from the coffee shop.

I switch it up sometimes...

I usually take my coffee with a splash of milk (no sugar), but sometimes switch it up - a little sweetener with my ice coffee, completely black dark roasts when I have a long night.

I'm in San Francisco and get my coffee from a couple places - usually prefer lighter or medium roasts like Ritual. Sometimes do Philz if I want something a little different, a little sweet.

Anyone else have a favorite coffee place they order beans from? I'm always looking to try something new.

I don't drink coffee very often any more at my doc's suggestion, but when I do, it's black and strong, and probably Kenya AA (or AAA if somebody's been there recently). Also love New Orleans style coffee.

I rarely drink coffee but when I do I want it sweet, not too sweet with chocolate creamer.

Fresh, hot and black. It it's really too strong I add a packet of Splenda and a 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon half and half.

Re:

Late entry here, but I've roasted and cupped my own coffee.

SweetMarias used to be in Columbus, Ohio on High Street and I purchased from them. Then I brew my own beers & wines and make my own vinegar.

Today I tend to have a dozen or more coffee's I've bought from various grocery store chains and experiment with mixing from those stocks just to see what I can cup.
If buying green coffee beans wasn't so expensive I'd go back to it and roasting & grinding.

I have a French press, Mocha, ADC, percolator, and a collection of Cappuccino
machines friends have given me.

I often make Belgian Waffles and have Cappuccino with it for my guest. Or I take the works to their place and make it at gatherings.
