    6-8oz of Starbucks House blend, 2-3oz of 2% milk, and 1 tbsp of regular sugar. Pretty much every time. xD I don't like creamer, tastes like crap. I tried drinking it black but it was just so bitter and gross.

    Started out with 2 tablespoons of sugar and 4 tablespoons of full out Italian Cream Coffeemate and am now down to 1 teaspoon sugar and 2 tablespoons sugar-free creamer. Not sure I'll ever make it to straight up black coffee but I think I'm doing pretty well right now. I do 1 cup every day and it's 46 calories of pure heaven.

    I use almond milk in my coffee. I log two ounces but it's probably less. I like it dark and am working my way to black coffee. I used to put a ton of sugar in it, but cut back and have been drinking it without for 2 1/2 years. So my usual Dunkin Donuts large, with almond milk (I take it home and add the milk) is 18 calories.

    Stevia is excellent in coffee and a great way to lower the calories in your coffee. I also buy lowfat lowsugar creamer to use at home, and get skim milk from public places.

    I always had my coffee with milk and one sugar. In fact I used to always prefer tea. Then back last February I spent a week just drinking unsweetened black coffee.

    Now all I drink is unsweetened black coffee - I love the taste and you can really notice the difference between different coffees.

    Not sure this would be everyone's 'cup of tea', but just thought I would share :)

    I can't do artificial sweeteners in hot coffee. In iced, I don't mind. It's strange.

    We've been using the Coffeemate creamers for awhile now, 1 tbsp per 12-16oz, but when we ran out, black was fine, too.

    I just like coffee.

    This is so true. Organic taste the best to me.

    That's what I said too! Coffee drinking is an art.

    My morning coffee has to have one tablespoon of Cinnabon creamer (35 calories). I highly recommend it. :)

    I just can't get into the flavored creamers. But I love Cinnabons!

    Went cold turkey a few years ago to black coffee and haven't looked back since. I love it this way now. Took a few weeks to get used to but it can be done! I was so concerned about the calories so black was the way to go for me.

    I use non-dairy creamer (mostly french vanilla), and a serving of that is 35 calories. I used to drink coffee with like a boatload of sugar, so I think that's a good compromise. XD I drink up to 3 cups a day, so I just budget it in - because I can't live without coffee. :p

    I drink it black, coffee with sugar and creamer is too sweet ! I slowly cut back on the creamer and sugar when I decided to switch to black coffee and weaned my way off!
