Light roast, black, very early in the morning, with the heat on high while staring out the window into a rainy vista, with a good book and/or some music.
At home it's usually a strong cup of regular black coffe from our Moccamaster, preferrably using freshly ground beans, while enjoying the day's first hit of nicotine. Having your own grinder really makes a world of difference. When I am out and about I tend to think most regular cups of coffee tastes crap by comparison so I'll usually go for a Cappuccino or Latte at that point. Maybe with some cinnamon or cardamom on top.
TRY IT ALL.
I respect people who have their own choices, but i don't respect people who say other's choices are wrong. I like some cream in mine. Little splenda. Straight black is to bitter to me.
Try different ways to make it. French Press gives you oil, which really makes the same bean different from a drip or aeropress or something. If youve got an Ikea near you they sell big and little presses for DIRT cheap (unlike the bodums you get at a target/department store that are 50 bucks for the 2 cents of chrome they stick on it).
Try fruity blends. Try chocolate tinged. Try dark, try light. Try cold brew. Try iced. Half the fun of coffee is just figuring out what you like!
