I've never tried coffee and never will.

Love my coffee. How I take it depends on my mood. First cup of the day - usually black. Second cup - with heavy cream. Once in a while I use the flavored creamers but not often; don't like the sweetness. Do like flavored coffees either black or with cream, tho.

I used to have it with lots of the different flavored creamers. Actually I didnt have creamer with my coffee I had coffee with my creamer. Lately tho I have been using heavy whipping cream and splenda. If you havent tried it you should its really good. Alot less carbs than in the flavored creamers

Just a dash of milk, no sugar and preferably by the gallon.

Got a Tassimo Brew Bot and I found myself addicted to the Gevalia Cappuccino t cups with the foaming milk creamer! 2 creamers, 2 espresso's, 3 teaspoons and a thermal coffee mug does the trick!

I have one of the Keurig money suckers that the girlfriend and kids love.. We usually have the Duncan Donuts original blend. Add some French vanilla and a spoon of sugar, and I'm good to go. When money is tight or nobody has been to the store, I can quickly go back to my prison ways of instant coffee and sugar.. The rest of them are a little too snobby for the instant, so if we're out of the Keurig cups, they don't drink it..

Keurig here, too. (wait, is that a kitchen gadget? Oh, hell...)

The pre-loaded cups are a luxury 'round here so it's usually a mix of Café Bustelo and whatever house blend is reasonably priced at the time through a refillable filter cup.

I take it black, in a cup that I like to leave "seasoned". Don't judge me.

Heck yeah! Usually they're hanging in the coffee aisle. But Amazon carries them, as well. The thing is it's sort of anti-convenience-- you have to clean it and refill it for every cup. I'm the only one who drinks coffee here so no big deal. But with multiple users, it might be a point of contention.

When I was on a Pinterest binge, I saw where people would pre-fill the reusable cups and put them in a rubbermaid box in the fridge. Might be something?

Since 1/2 the coffee junkies aren't paying for it, I like the anti-convenience backup plan! I'm not cheap.. BUT.. When kids are popping them back-to-back.. Yeah, fill-em up youngsters OR buy your own..
It's funny how much they love it.... until they have to pay for it!

I like my coffee strong... I use the caffeine to help my ADHD. Gevalia is what I've found doesn't get too bitter. I live trying different brands... beans and roasts.

Another Kuerig user here. Whether I use Community coffee k-cups or my re-usable k-cup depends on how much change I have in my pocket. Usually drink it black unless I'm craving something sweet. Then I'll use a little Cinnabon creamer and some sugar. But mostly I drink black. Habit from when I was in nursing school and didn't want to drink 1000 calories worth of coffee fixins during marathon study sessions.

I'm about to start weaning myself off of caffeine so I guess I'll be doing half caff soon. Sob.

Black, anyway I can get it. I would probably eat the beans if I had too.

Actually the beans are really good! My favorite roaster back home used to sell espresso beans (dipped in chocolate or not) in small bags. I don't know what the process was to get them sort of...dehydrated a bit? But they were crunchy, something like a corn nut. Now I want some!

I will have to try the chocolate covered beans! The grad students where I work go through more coffee than a Starbucks and we have several grinders and bunch of machines, but it harder to drink hot stuff in the summer.

I drink Turkish coffee which I like to have prepared "sekerli" or lots of sugar. I know it is a faux pas but I like to add a dash of cream to mine.

If I had Turkish coffee at work I could cut way down on my coffee drinking problem, but my sugar intake would go up, but that's also the case with the chocolate covered beans.

It is a case of a no - win situation! I want to make a switch to regular coffee but it tastes much too weak in comparison. But if I can do it, I can drink more coffee! Chocolate covered beans, these I have never had. Are these eaten like candy ?? Do I need to buy some ??
