How do you take your coffee?

    Basic black although I do like cream and sugar a few times a year as a treat...

    When I have my joe at home/office, I brew a cup of medium roast (Keurig) then add two packets of Splenda and I use Coffee-mate Sugar Free Caramel Vanilla creamer. Tastes great! The fat free creamers do not work for me, they "water down" my coffee since they are so thin, but really like the sugar free versions. I occasionally toss in a tsp of Benefiber for good measure.

    At Starbucks, I usually order a skinny vanilla latte (hot or iced depending on my mood or the weather). Occasionally will splurge on a skinny/light mocha frappuchino with no whip.

    1-2 shots of espresso, no sugar, 8-12 ounces unsweetened vanilla almond milk

    Have you tried unsweetened vanilla almond milk? I find it allows me to ditch the sugar and still get the flavor and satisfaction.

    For my "at home" brew, I choose black with stevia. On the occasional coffee shop excursion, I usually get a plain, nonfat latte (iced or hot) with stevia or Splenda.

    Very white, over half soy milk, less than half coffee!

    I've been adding pure coconut milk to my coffee. I seems to give me a longer energy run. I know coconut milk has tons of saturated fat in it but it is not the same as fats from meats and dairy. Coconut milk fats are burned immediately by the liver for energy. Oh yeah and it tastes good too.

    Fortunately, I don't make more than a cup a day. I make a an AeroPress sort of expresso with a cappuccino blend of beans and let it sit for a while. I use 4 tsp of chocolate CofeeMate and two packs of stevia. Hot or iced, same thing.

    I start each day with one of those canned Starbuck's Doubleshots.
  • Two tablespoons of half and half. I only drink one cup - no sweetner:wink:

    Almond milk is good, but bad in terms of hot coffee since it doesn't froth well! I adore black coffee, but on the rare occasion i do get milk, i use soy. :)

    By the potful. Either black, with fat free creamer, or Splenda, or both. Mostly by the potful.

    I like my coffee like I like my man - tall, strong, and sweet

    I like my coffee nice and strong with just a drop of 1% milk in it.

    Black. Sometimes with soy/almond milk or with some sugar free flavor syrup for a treat

    Coffee is a rarity for me, but, years ago.......... I would put 2 spoonful's of instant (cheapest I could find) in about 1 cup of Pepsi or Coke and drink it before I trained...... =`ed "JACKED"

    You have to do what works for you. My guilty pleasure for my once a day coffee is French Vanilla creamer. I love it. I have reduced the amount I use so that is one good step in the right direction.
