How do like your java?
What kind of coffee do you enjoy the most?
Cream? Sugar? Decaf? Hot? Over ice? Nutra-sweet?
How much do you drink? Can you live without it?
Coffee is the one addictive drink we can all relate too. How do you like yours?

Bokar blend {8 o'clock coffee} just milk, usually under 2 cups a day and only in the mornings. I could live without it. Hubby can and WILL drink it morn noon n' night, I would hate to see what he is like without it.

I'm easy. Black, morning only. Two or three cups and I'm done. A little more on the weekends while I'm reading the paper.

Occasionally, after a nice dinner out, black again with the dessert.

I like my coffee any way. Most of the time, I have it black. I do like it though with cream and sugar, but I have to be in the mood. I also like ice coffee. The commercial kind I always have at home is Folgers. I love Starbucks coffee and Tim Hortons.

I like Iced Coffee with some vanilla,sugsr,and whipped cream.

There's a surprise! I pegged you for a black coffee kinda guy....well, you learn something new everyday....

As for me, I'm a 3:1/ decaf:caf with enough milk to make it almost hot.

When I'm in a flavorful mood, it's a gingerbread latte ;)

If its coffee...I like it. My kids have learned to ask, "Mom have you had your coffee yet?" before asking me for something in the morning. I drink it black most of the time, but when I go out with the ladies in the afternoons I like a Vanilla Bean Latte from Second Cup...mmmmm!

Has anybody tried Gevalia coffee? They keep trying to shove it down our throats every chance they get in adds.

I never liked coffee until I learned to drink it black, but that's when I learned about good and bad coffee.

I'm not a coffee fiend, though. I don't usually order it in restaurants. I don't usually make it unless it's to serve to guests. I'll drink it if it's offered.

I prefer old fashioned percolated coffee and 100% Kona made in a French Press.

I love the smell of coffee, and I like some coffee flavored things (like coffee candies), but I don't like coffee. I've always said I'm backwards--I'm half Swedish and don't like coffee, and I'm half German and don't like beer. :shock:

P.S. Someone mentioned the Gevalia ads. I did that. For $10 I got a nice coffee maker (my husband drinks coffee), 2 really pretty cups, and a couple pounds of coffee. I cancelled right away, and they never bothered me about it.

You had it right. I quit drinking coffee soon after working at the Big House and my first heart attack back in 1997. I drank at least 30 cups a day of black coffee....no sugar.
