Mondays in my world always call for coffee – the more, the better. I’m a simple girl – give me two creams in my cup of joe and I’m all set. How do you take your coffee? ← This Weekend Open Thread Loves Mac and Cheese Spring Rolls → My Magical Seed Starting Closet 10 replies on “Lunchtime Poll 1/14/2013: How Do You Like Your Coffee?” I learned to drink coffee in a college dorm, right after I learned I was lactose intolerant, and before there were decent artificial sweeteners, so I got used to the equivalent of unadulterated hot paint thinner. However a few years ago I discovered soy milk, so now I brew coffee which I mix half regular, half decaf (Trader Joe’s Smooth ‘n Mellow), with a splash of vanilla soy milk. However, in the summer, I like iced coffee black. And thanks for starting this – how fun to see the wide variety of answers! There is a latte machine at work that I usually use (with a dash of cinnamon on top!), but otherwise, I just like a little flavored creamer in my coffee at home. This is the daily coffee grind (ha!) that I stick to, but if I’m buying coffee out and about, I tend to like things like peppermint mochas or hazelnut lattes. Cream and sugar. Never milk if I can help it. Whipped cream and/or booze on the weekends. I take a little bit of cream in my first cup and by my third cup, it’s black. :) I don’t. Coffee is yeuchy. Though I will admit a good barista can make it look delicious. Black – the way my mother drank it. She said she drank it that way so that when she got refills she never had to adjust the milk/sugar ratio again. So I learned to love coffee black and I can’t stand it with cream and sugar. yuk. Related: I also drink my Scotch neat. If it’s good coffee, black. If it’s bad coffee, with a splash of milk. Whenever I find out that people like sugar in their coffee (like my boyfriend who takes three sugars per cup), I’m always shocked. I can’t understand how people can like sugar in coffee. I think it always tastes like butt. I like my coffee like I like my men: hot, strong, and black. :P But really, my first cup has one or two creams and then every other cup is black. I don’t. I feel a tiny bit like I’m missing out, until I see a box full of tea flavours. I haven’t had coffee for a long time now, but when I did have it – and wasn’t at home – I always had whichever concoction had chocolate in it. These days, when out, I’ve progressed to just ordering hot chocolate! Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
