What do you like (have) with your coffee? Pancakes and sausage, eggs and bacon, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, pastries, biscuit, biscotti, coffee cake, danishes, bagel, english muffin, croissant, etc. Maybe you like a little sugar, cream, milk, raw sugar, brown sugar, honey, whip cream, a shot of expresso, or flavorings such as vanilla, hazelnut, chocolate, almond or other flavors. What gets you going in the morning? Or is there something else you prefer?
I had to think about this and as a newbie coffee drinker, the only think that I have always loved with coffee is a home made biscuit. Now you have to understand I am from the south where home made buttermilk biscuits are all the rage but a dying art form if my peers are any indication.

Nothing. If I have food at the same time I have coffee, I'll rush through the food (and sometimes not finish it) in order to concentrate on the coffee. If I have no food with coffee (which is what I most often do) I'll rush through the coffee in order to get to the second cup of coffee (my idea of dessert) - and it's the second cup that I drink very leisurely.

At most restaurants or on other occasions when I'm served coffee, it usually needs some cream, milk, half and half or so on to weaken it.
I think Brad Pitt (sans Angie) on Saturdays and Sundays, maybe going into Monday. Then I'd need to recuperate Tues-Thurs. If my heart can take the excitement, then Brad with Friday afternoon coffee is ok and back to Saturday morning coffee.
For some reason, I need to have my coffee by itself. I feel that I can't really enjoy the coffee if it's smothered by accompanying food. If I can, I will have coffee and then breakfast. If I have to, I will have coffee after breakfast. As long as I have enough time to sit down and enjoy it, that's the important part!
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...
I have decided I have to stop. I am so sad. I love coffee; the taste, the smell, how it makes me feel.But lately I've been having pains in my chest that go away when I don't drink coffee. So, I think I'll have to switch...
