Poll: How do you take your Coffee? (188 votes)

Black as my heart 44%
With cream / milk only 15%
With sugar only 4%
Milk / Cream & Sugar 24%
Other (Specify) 12%

So as I sit here drinking a cup of Coffee I made this morning I was wondering how all your coffee drinkers out there take your coffee? Me? I'm a cream only kind of guy. How much depends on the quality of the coffee. If its shitty coffee more cream to cover up the taste if its good stuff I'll put less in so I can taste the actual coffee. And if you're asking why I would ever willingly drink shitty coffee well... sometimes a man needs a caffeine fix and all they have access to is the shitty coffee at work. So how about you guys?

just milk (or soymilk). I don't think coffee needs to be sweetened, just... cooled down a bit.

#2 Edited by Demoskinos (15282 posts) -

@toowalrus: Yeah I'm with you there. If you put sugar in it you just get further away from it tasting like coffee.

Like my women: hot, black and without any pubic hair

#4 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5146 posts) -

Usually with cream and sugar. But when I am really sleepy and want to wake up fast, then black, so the taste will punch me in the face.

Coffee instead of water/milk in hot chocolate mix, instant & cheap mocha over $4 one from stores.

#8 Edited by Blu3V3nom07 (3805 posts) -

Strong French Roast, two sugar, half a creme.

#9 Posted by Brewmaster_Andy (531 posts) -

Black, like my men.

Iced coffee gets a pass as well as cream and sugar. Unless it's an iced Americano, which I usually take black.

#10 Posted by JasonR86 (9739 posts) -

However I can get it.

#11 Edited by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

Cream only.

#12 Edited by Kidable (127 posts) -

With a bit of Swery

(I'm actually a tea drinker. Tea 4 Lyfe.)

#13 Edited by Soapy86 (2625 posts) -


I really don't enjoy extra stuff in my coffee, unless it's enough extra stuff that it becomes a different drink.

Black as midnight on a moonless night.

#19 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4914 posts) -

Milk/cream and an ungodly amount of sugar. Just freaking diabetic coma inducing levels of sugar.

#20 Edited by Video_Game_King (36271 posts) -

I don't.

#21 Edited by OldGuy (1576 posts) -


#22 Edited by Pr1mus (3972 posts) -

With about 6 milk/cream and 8 sugars.

I'm not exaggerating. I hate coffee and will only drink some 25 cent coffee from work when i'm in a dire need for something to stay awake and have no energy drink nearby.

#23 Edited by Everyones_A_Critic (6313 posts) -

Black but I prefer a Monster Rehab Red Tea when I wanna wake up. Shit is good.

#24 Posted by Demoskinos (15282 posts) -

@pr1mus: Holy christ you must hate it with that much stuff in it I don't even think that is coffee anymore.

#25 Posted by Pr1mus (3972 posts) -

@demoskinos: Yeah but it works wonder to keep me awake! At this point though it's probably the sugar more than the caffeine.

#26 Posted by Demoskinos (15282 posts) -

@pr1mus: Yeah, for whatever reason coffee is the ONLY thing that works on me to keep me awake. Energy drinks? All day son and not a thing. Coffee? I'm wired.

#27 Posted by myketuna (1770 posts) -

I don't really drink coffee unless I need to do something very early in the morning. In which case, I take it black.

#28 Edited by djou (878 posts) -

When I brew my own, black since I'm on the threshold of being one of those coffees snobs. Sustainably sourced beans in a burr grinder brewed on a melita, etc. But if someone serves me coffee I just take it standard, milk and two sugars, since its masks lackluster bean flavor.

#29 Edited by HerbieBug (4208 posts) -

I have become a coffee brewing enthusiast in recent years thanks to Tested. My favorite is medium roast brewed pourover style with my Hario V-60. I like to put half a teaspoon of heavy 34% whipping cream, mostly to thicken up and increase oily consistency just slightly.

For plain old drip brewer swill I also do a small amount of cream. 18% table cream for that.

Never sugar. Makes coffee taste terrible to me when sugar is added. If shitty coffee is the only coffee available, I will drink tea. Tea bag tea is superior to bad coffee almost always.

#30 Posted by Hunter5024 (6069 posts) -

I take my coffee and pour it down the drain where it belongs. The only good coffee is the coffee you can't taste.

#31 Edited by Chop (1999 posts) -

Black. Although I don't really drink the stuff very often.

I'm more of a green tea man, myself.

#32 Posted by SuperTess (142 posts) -

Cream only. Though I did go through a stretch of drinking it black, mainly because I was too lazy to get cream to keep at work for coffee. So I think putting cream in my coffee at home is mostly just habit really.

#33 Posted by GrantHeaslip (1626 posts) -

I'm lactose intolerant, but even if I wasn't I'd probably still drink black coffee. I've tried various dairy-free milks (soy, almond, rice, etc.) in coffee and never really enjoyed it.

I suspect black coffee's a bit of an acquired taste -- if you're not used to it, it might take some time before you start "getting it". This is a pretty coffee snobish thing to say, but I also have a feeling a lot of people who drink stuff like double-doubles (is that just a Canada thing?) don't actually like the taste of coffee, they just like sugar, fat, and caffeine.

#38 Posted by Krataur (430 posts) -

I take my coffee as tea.

#39 Edited by Stonyman65 (2906 posts) -

With as much milk and sugar as needed to get rid of the bitter coffee taste. Not really a coffee drinker to be honest. I've tried buy I can't get into it.

However I do like those McDonald's frozen caramel Frappe things. those are pretty good, but I can only handle a small one maybe once a month or so.

#40 Posted by Sanaj (173 posts) -

I take my coffee with just milk.

#41 Edited by JadeGL (991 posts) -

Milk/cream/creamer and sugar. I like my coffee looking like a cup of beige paint.

Well, maybe not that light, but you get the gist. :)

Unless it's a fancy cappuccino or something at a restaurant or something, then I drink it straight. I really like getting a Cafe Americano when I can.too, and I usually don't add anything to that.

#42 Posted by Milkman (17477 posts) -

Just milk. Shocker, I know.

I also changed to just milk (skim) about 2 years ago. Used to take it with sugar.

#44 Edited by AlexW00d (6492 posts) -

The idea of coffee with cream sounds fucking gross to me. Is that an American thing? I only drink it black cause I drink it for the taste, not for the caffeine. Coffee is good.

#45 Edited by bennyboy (329 posts) -

I've been drinking black coffee daily for 8 months now and still don't really enjoy it.

#46 Posted by PerfidiousSinn (786 posts) -

I don't really drink plain coffee. I'll take a macchiato, latte, or cappuccino. Never plain coffee, no matter how much cream or sugar is in it.

#47 Posted by LaszloKovacs (1241 posts) -

If you don't drink your coffee black then you don't like coffee.

#48 Edited by Bucketdeth (8048 posts) -

If you don't drink your coffee black then you don't like coffee.

Just like how if I put ketchup on my fries I don't like fries?, or if I eat oatmeal with some honey I don't like oatmeal?, or if I like blue cheese with my wings I don't like wings? I always find it pretentious when people are like "OMFG YOU PUT CREAM IN YOUR COFFEE".

#49 Posted by Philedius (204 posts) -

The blackest and the strongest, mmm yeah.

#50 Edited by MikkaQ (10346 posts) -

Just sugar. Which is by far the least popular choice for some reason.
