How do you take your coffee?

    Black... far easier to get one of those at work than white-hardly-any-milk-oh-sorry-that's-too-much

    If it is too strong for me (I can be a wimp) I have a teaspoon of milk that I drink first, then the coffee. Makes it less bitter without detracting from the black-coffee taste :D

    I like my coffee, HOT, BLACK, and BITTER! Army coffee is the best! If you can stand a spoon up in the cup, GOOOOOD! If it dissolves the spoon? PERFECT!!!

    I used to use two creams and three big spoons of sugar (or two Truvia packets when I could get them). But I gave up cream cold turkey and am down to 1.5 teaspoons of sugar for the biggest cup I can brew with my Keurig ( I think 14oz). My husband gives me *kitten*, and says there is no way a can even taste that small amount of sugar, but it is just enough for me. But given the chance I will take a cappucino at a nice cafe or restaurant

    Black. I added milk 'til my late 20s and stopped just because I'd have coffee at meetings where milk wasn't an option, quickly learned I preferred it black. I don't think of coffee as a sweet drink and have never liked it with sugar or any other sweetener.

    Black, with a teaspoon of cocoa powder, coconut oil, and butter. Definitely not for the purists, lol.

    Just started a modified BPC, so .5 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of heavy or light whipping cream and blended. Sometimes I'll add in Cinnamon, an extract or even butter...but I like the basic cream and oil (always blended). Gives me the coffee rush and kills my appetite until lunch time!

    When I went low carb and gave up sugar, I gave up coffee until recently. Before my usual cup of coffee was half coffee, half french vanilla creamer, and two teaspoons of sugar. My mother (who drinks her coffee black) says I might as well be drinking chocolate milk.

    Recently I discovered Torani sugar free syrups, and now I have my coffee back. Heavy whipping cream and Torani sugar free french vanilla. Tastes really close to the french vanilla creamer. Still a lot of calories, but no sugar...and I don't really care about the calories because I really didn't like eating breakfast.

    I tried the bulletproof coffee...I didn't like coconut oil in my coffee. :)

    There is a local coffee roaster in my area so I will stock up every other week to ensure the freshest of roasts. I drink all kinds of roasts, some flavored ... like most of them. I use So Delicious Coconut creamer which has no artificial crap but does contain some sugar. Since the creamer does have sugar, I add monkfruit sweetener in my coffee instead of white sugar. I will always make a mug or two extra and refrigerate it so in the morning before I work out, I can drink a quick iced coffee which helps fuel my workout. Because I deal with aggravating body inflammation, the "warming from the inside out" that coffee gives me during my cardio is beneficial. The coffee also partially blocks those pain receptors so I can push through a workout.

    I prefer the Green Mountain Breakfast Blend kcups and I take it with 3 Equals (or Sweet n Lows) and 3 French vanilla creamers (or 2 tablespoons of creamer). I drink 2 cups a day on weekdays.

    I do half 2% milk and half water with a piece of cinnamon stick in it.. Boil it.. Then stir in a spoon of nescafe and 3 splendas... Sometimes half a scoop of vanilla protein powder instead of two of the splendas.

    I love my coffee but am working hard to curb calories. I have been mixing it up:
    flavored coffee, dab of real maple syrup & milk
    On my lifting days - after workout before work - I have a coffee smoothie - coffee, protein powder, ice, splash of milk...

    I love lattes, and finally got my own machine, a Gaggia. Lattes every morning: 2 oz espresso and 1/4 milk (before the foam)
