    Coffee

    How do you take your coffee?

    Regular or decaf?

    Splenda?

    Cream? (What kind?)

    Flavoring?


    I dont drink coffee that much, but when I do, I drink the Bigby best blend. I use Heavy cream. I use liquid splenda. and I have sugar free torani french vanilla flavoring.

    I grind my own beans and I use a french press. Coffee is a hobby to me, lol I enjoy making it!

    mmmm, coffeeeee....

    when i want a really strong cup, i use "strong" espresso (already ground, just easier) beans, with heavy cream and the tiniest drop of liquid sweetener (sodium saccharin sp?)

    otherwise, i have (and grind my beans, this is the one my husband uses as well, so i don't "contaminate" the grinder with my stronger stuff ) - lavazza beans, which are "meium" strength. everything here in australia is espresso based, so it's just a matter of strength - again, tiny drop, and cream.

    oh, yum!

    tracy

    meanwhile, when i first started night shift, i had to have coffee with 6 sugar packets [/quote]

    I only drink a cup of coffee in the morning, so I don't adhere to the purist "decaf" crowd. I drink mine black! If I eat at a restaurant, I put cream in it, just for a change (and you never know how long it sat in the back...LOL!)

    Enjoy that java!

    I am a coffee fanatic!!! I get either the Gevalia french roast or the authentic Hawaiian hazelnut from my friend at work who used to live in Hawaii. It's delicious!!! I love cream and sugar so have to have half n half or heavy cream and splenda tastes the best I hate sweet n low (only in iced tea) and of course regular~not decaf

    Mmm... coffee

    I have mine with unsweetened soymilk and Truvia. Its the natural rebiana extract from the Stevia plant. A plant based non-sugar sweetener. I read that we shouldn't have caffiene but as a chronic fatigue sufferer, I would get absolutely nothing done without caffiene.

    i wish i could go sweetener-free in my coffee - i am SO CLOSE!! i have the smallllllessstttt drip of liquid saccharin - an di mean it is a small amount - i drop it in, and shake most of it out again. but i need that 10th of a ml, i tell you - and i can taste if it's not there, or if it's too much - i am SUCH A FREAK i know....it is a morning ritual - getting that drip just right

    and yes, cream as well, but i'll behonest here - i have like 2 tablespoons! (and tablespoons here are bigger than in the US

    lol

    I prefer my coffee cold. Espresso shots over ice. Sometimes with a little bit of cream and splenda, sometimes black, but since I only drink it on rare occasions I will sometimes go decaf, sometimes regular. I like to vary things a bit.

    i had an alcoholic espresso drink the other weekend for "dessert" - it was very cold, and sickly sweet (this is before restarting induction! ) -

    i love coffee ice cream, but otherwise, hot and barely (artificially-) sweetenend, and with cream for me!

    I stopped drinking coffee once I noticed the heart racing and the problems with sitting still while studying and so on.
