If it's a good coffee I drink it black. I prefer a dark roast. If it's not good -- like the crap they serve at convenience stores or bad diners -- I'll use some half and half and a little sweetener. My most surprising cup of good coffee has been at Mickey D's though. I'm not a coffee snob. But in a pinch, the coffee at the Golden Arches, I've discovered, is a hell of a lot better than it was years ago. My theory is that Starbuck's made them raise their game.

4 shots of expresso in a big coffee cup that has steamed & foamy whole milk in it. I alternate varieties of arabica beans - this week is Bali Blue Moon. Occasionally I stir in vanilla paste or a Torani sugar free flavoring like English Toffee.

I don't drink coffee. Never even tried it. I don't care for the smell of it.

Used both in that order, each for a couple years. For the past several years it's been Ice Box mudslide -- a shot in a 10-ounce mug. I completely lost my sense of smell nearly 30 years ago, so I've got to have it just a bit bitter to know it's coffee.

Usually Folgers or Maxwell house, whatever is on sale. Never a store or generic brand.

Bunn pour over drip coffee maker. Ready in 3 minutes.

One high rounded measure of dark or french roast and 2 high rounded measures of regular.

Enough creamer to make it a medium brown color. Light brown or tan is too much. The creamer is milk at home, or whatever is available out, but never flavored. About 1 level teaspoon of sugar. Never a sugar substitute.

Sometimes if we've finished the whole pot, I'll use a small Ikea french press to make another cup & a half.

DW drinks it black. I can drink it black if it's an emergency.

Usually with Coffee Mate Natural Bliss sweet cream flavor. That contains milk, cream and sugar. I only use a little though. I want to be able to taste the coffee. Sometimes I'll buy half and half instead. If nothing is available I'll also drink it black.

A tinch of unrefined brown cane sugar, no milk and certainly no non-dairy creamer.

A little bit of nonfat milk and 4, 5 or 7 Splenda packets (7 for a 20 or 24 oz coffee, 5 for a 16 oz, and 4 for a 12 oz). If getting coffee at Whole Foods....same nonfat milk, and 5 Stevia packets with their largest coffee.
