I take it black and prefer darker roasts - about 4 cups/day thankyou. I love the french press! Don't have one myself but I do enjoy the resulted flavor from those little dynamos!

Not sure what a french press is but I take mine three different ways.

At home-----1/2 a sugar
At work-----2 sugar and cream
At Timmy's....Tim Hortons for all you non-canadians---extra large triple triple

Odd how different places you do different things.

During the evening if I have coffee I like it with French Vanilla flavoured cream, or Baileys

Mine is usually black, but like Tanis, if I have some in the evening I may add a splash of something sweet and milky.

I like all coffees. Including flavoured ones. I am fortunate though to have a Second Cup nearby where I can get my GOOD flavoured stuff. I'm also addicted to Maple flavoured coffee. Ken keeps me supplied.

I take my coffee black. I prefer Gevalia Breakfast Blend...order several times a year. The red bag Eight O'clock. In all cases I pour my coffee beans in my old fashione grinder and grind just before use.

Like tea also. Coffee morning. Tea: Green My favorite: Good Earth
Green Tea (comes in a green box individual wrap with a "chinaman"graphic on box.

Some time it is loose tea: Bancha, Sancha (Japanese). Only Green Tea

2 cups of black coffee every morning. During the week I usually make it, fresh ground and made in a Chemex coffee maker. Can't give a brand - we buy our beans green and roast usually 2 or 3 times a week. Depends of the beans. We used to do a lot of dark roasts, but lately we've been roasting a little lighter - to get more of the flavor components. It was fun a couple weeks ago - we had a coffee that had a distinct blueberry taste - it was so fun, and even better cold than hot - I hope I can get more so we can have it iced this summer.
I'm just lookin' for my "cheese"!

I have a pot that grinds the beans and then shoots them into the basket, where the water drips over them. 5:15 every morning, I wake to the aroma of fresh coffee. I add splenda and light cream to the coffee....and proceed to drink precisely half a cup. I never finish a cup of coffee. I think I have seperation anxiety.

Trader Joe's carries my favourite nicaraguan coffee. Ask your parents to send you that. I bet you'll love it.

[quote=redkitty]Hello fellow coffee connoisseurs!

How do you take your coffee??? Black? Cream? Sugar?

I'm living in a country full of tea and instant coffee! Instant coffee!! Blah! Yes we have loads of Starbucks, but I make my own coffee, grinding fresh beans and using a drip coffee maker. My lovely parents ship me care packages full of Extra Dark French Roast beans from Trader Joes. YUM. I also love other varieties, but I dont wanna ask for other blends! (I miss Peets...mmmm)

Recently I starting using a Boudin French Press and I cant decided if I like it better than the drip. Thoughts?

I love tea and I love instant coffee I used to make perked coffee, then went to auto drip coffee maker with timer, and finally instant. Folgers brand in the U.S. is pretty good, but lately I find that most coffee's give me headaches, even decaf. Tea is my choice now.
