Coffee...How do you drink yours?

This is just for fun. If you are a coffee drinker, how do you drink your coffee? How many cups do you drink? Regular or decaf?

I drink mostly decaf with half and half or heavy cream, and one packet of Truvia or Splenda. My husband drinks it black with LOTS of sugar. I tried black coffee and I just couldn't get into it. I love my coffee super creamy.

    I used to drink 1-4 XL Tim Horton's Double Double's, haven't bought one in about a month now!
    I drink 1-3 regular cups of coffee, with 2 creamers and 1 sugar packet at 73 calories now, much better than the Timmie's I was drinking!

    I used to drink Venti Nonfat Caramel Macchiatos!!!!!! Oh the calories!!!!!!! lol

    When I was pregnant I had a decaf Grande Caramel Frapuccino pretty much everyday from the time I was seven months. This was before they made the nonfat versions of them. When I look back I just want to slap myself! lol

    I grew up drinking my coffee with 2 scoops of regular sugar and about 2 T. of cream... Knowing that was adding unnecessary calories, I slowly weened myself off and now drink regular coffee black. First few sips are a little rough, but I get into it eventually. LOL

    Most weekdays I'll have 2 cups of coffee with one teaspoon of raw sugar and 1/2 cup skim milk. On the weekends I'll let myself have half and half instead of the skim milk. Since I've started watching what I eat I've really cut back on the sugar, but just can't give up the cream/milk.

    I used to be totally addicted to White Mochas from Starbucks.

    Extra strong caffeinated Cafe Bustelo, cold, with a scoop of protein powder, a tablespoon of Chocolate Syrup, a tablespoon of caramel syrup, 2 teaspoons of benefiber powder and a dash of cinnamon... over ice. Best Mocha Latte Frappuccino I have EVER had!

    I like it black if it's good coffee.

    With a little sugar and some soy milk if it's crappy coffee

    and super sugary if it's Starbucks. But I drink Starbucks black occasionally if I don't feel like something sweet, even though it's pretty gag-worthy.

    One cup each morning with two packets of Splenda and about 2-3 tablespoons of powdered creamer. At least I've cut back from 2-3 cups per morning. :smile:

    I make my own at home with whole bean (there really is a difference), just a splash of skim milk and I've weaned myself down to 1/2 tsp of real sugar. I drink 2 cups a day.

    Enjoying some right now...usually I don't do much better than Folgers, and here at work they like it STRONG...usually in my travel mug it's 1-1/2 packet of truvia and about a tablespoon of powdered creamer. Sometimes I like it with flavored creamers or preferably half and half, but I'm at work, coffee's free, and we've only so much to put in it. :drinker:

    at one point in life I drank A LOT of coffee (like a pot, double-double)
    About a month or so I was down to 1 large Timmies (still double double) every morning, as well as a cup I had made myself at home with low fat cream and sugar.

    Now I have switched to half-caffe (which is like...half regular coffee, half decaf) I am down to just the cup I make at home, still "double-double" but with the 5% creamer, and I generally only drink about half of it before I head out the door.

    Ideally i'd still like to have the one cup in the morning at home, but wean off of the sugar. For now i'm feeling ok about only drinking half of the cup.
