So how do you like your cup of coffee in the mornings?

    As for myself, 3 packets of sugar, half a cup of milk, and then coffee.  Creamer and sugar always has to go in first before the coffee is poured. 

    I also like to grind my own coffee and store it in the freezer.  Anyone else?

      Until about 2 years ago, I took it black, now I am addicted to french vanilla creamer.

    well it needs to be strong, first off.  Not overly so, but strong enough. then about 3 sugars and a spoonful of powdered creamer.

    Got to have it black with no sugar now that I'm diabetic.  Now if I can stop ordering the chocolate long johns from Dunkin' Donuts I'll be fine....lol j/k

    depends on how I feel. sometimes one sugar and light cream, sometimes black. Sometimes with a shot of whiskey. I usally just buy ground coffe, but I have some raw beans a friend gave me, so occasionally I roast and grind them myself for a treat. that is black! and I love Iced Coffee when its hot out.

    Same routine every morning. My auto coffee machine sets at 0530 and when I can smell the brew at 0545, it is time to kick start the day. Coffee and fat-free creamer. No sugar since I read an article about the five to ten pounds we can carry throughout the year on our body by just having sugar with coffee or tea in the morning. Works for me..... smile

    I usually drink my first cup of coffee with a little sugar, then any additional cups I drink black.  But coffee has really been jagging me out a lot lately, so I have tried to refrain from drinking too much of it.  I really do like Starbuck's caramel macchiato though!  I will have an occasional cup of tea in the morning.  I drink that with a little sugar as well.

    Dark roasts only:  French or Italian.  I put Splenda in and some kind of low fat creamer.  Love it with Half and Half, but I don't do that very often.  Didn't get enough this morning, going to make some more now.

    I've had coffee served up black. White. Hot. Cold. Strong. Weak. Sweet. And sour.

    My preference is small, black, hot and strong.

    Even better if it comes in a cup smile

    Costa Rican Blend is great...love the coffee aroma....which is a big part of the morning "wake-up" brew routine. However...if I could go straight to getting the caffiene in a faster method...other than sipping on very hot brown liquid...I'd do it.

    It's all about the caffiene!

    That's why personally...I don't get the concept of "decaf"...at all.

    1. lrohner profile image85
      lrohnerposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Never tried Costa Rican coffee. I've had Cuban, Turkish, etc. and couldn't stand them. Totally love a good Italian Espresso with a nice shot of Sambuca on the side though. YUM!

    I love coffee with a bit of milk and chocolate to give it a mocha like taste.  I used to be a Starbucks addict, but realized I can make coffee cheaper at home.  Nevertheless, lots of good memories of spending time with friends drinking coffee smile.

    Good dark oily beans, fresh ground, brewed strong then sweetened up w/ real cream & a little sugar. I settle all the time when traveling & such, but this is how I do it at home.
    I love it from a French press but am far too busy (and lazy) in the mornings to do it that way. smile
    Cheers, everyone. *raises cup*

    Actually all kidding aside....I'm a coffee nut....go ahead make snide remarks....  It takes me 20 minutes in the morning to make my 2 cups of coffee.  I start with green coffee beans and roast them in my roaster to a very dark roast....then I grind them fresh and put the coffee in my french press....boiling water on top...wait 4 minutes ....plunge filter......and voila....best coffee you ever tasted.

    I like my coffee pretty basic -- just a nice drip coffee with milk. I like a lot of milk though, like cafe au lait. No sugar.

    I live in Japan and in the summer it's really hot and humid so in July and August I drink ice coffee, even in the morning. At home I make a big pot, then pour it in a pitcher and put it in the freezer for a few minutes, then I take it out and put it in the fridge, so I have big jug of ice coffee to get me through the day.
