    Coffee Drinkers?

    Coffee Drinkers?



    I love coffee and HAVE to have my one big mug every morning. Sometimes I'll even sneak another one in if I have time.

    I usually use a French Press but will also drink instant coffee when in a rush. I recently found this fun flavored ground coffee from Target's Archer Farms line called "S'mores"! it really does smell like s'mores and has a hint of that flavor without being too weird or artificial tasting. I take my coffee any which way...black, black with some Splenda, or for an extra treat, add a little half and half and sweetener.

    What's your favorite coffee and how do you prepare it?

    I LOVE Cafe du Monde and Luzianne, but they're hard to get here... We use just plain ol' Breakfast Roast.
    Dear Hubby says he likes his coffee like he likes his women -- bold, black, and hot. Uh huh... Yeahhhhh. [Inside joke, I'm a scrawny little gal who looks white.]
    I fru-fru mine up with Hazelnut CoffeeMate or even the HEB brand of hazelnut.

    We drink a whole pot of a morning, but I only get one mug... I've gotta be AT WORK by 6:30, so there isn't much dawdling for me. He drinks a couple mugs.

    I'm one of *those* who, if I cannot have my favorite creamer, will simply do without the coffee until the creamer is again available. Hazelnut only.

    I love my coffee but only buy the regular folgers usually. Can't have it black or without cream. I love the peppermint creamer in the winter. Mmmmmmmmm.... My go to is vanilla since I buy the fat free and they don't make other flavors fat free. the vanilla nut one is really yummy. Kinda like the diff between vanilla and French vanilla. I now add a tsp of coconut oil to my coffee as well and it gives it a richer flavor. Plus it makes your lips soft. Hahahahahahaha

    Maxwell House Original Blend. Not too strong but not too weak either, with non dairy creamer. I make a "10 cup" pot that I drink before going to work, and enroute. Then I make at least one more 4 cup pot at work. Sometimes two.

    I would drink it black but get heartburn too easily without the creamer. I don't tolerate half and half so it has to be non dairy.
    I also don't tolerate much sugar and don't even like the taste of "sweet" coffee. I don't like any of the flavored creamers I have tried either. I do occasionally like to just use coffee instead of water in a hot chocolate packet (I use the sugar free kind).

    On a side note: It's really difficult to find non dairy creamer offered at most restaurants in Wisconsin. Bruce tells me it wasn't that many years ago you couldn't buy margarine in the state either.

    I'm cheap I like folgers! Dukin donuts coffee is nice for a special treat but I'm happy with folgers. I put so much dang creamer in it anyway! Coffeemate French Vanilla these days but I was hooked on Hazelnut for 25 years prior.

    Wowzers! I have never even tasted coffee, but my husband loves it. He is Colombian, so used to only drink Colombian Supreme. Now, I have to grind the beans fresh (I do a few days supply at a time). We found a Jamaican blend that he flipped over. When the bag ran, out the store didn't have it any more! I only bought it in the first place because another couple was raving about it! I looked in every store (luckily we have a lot of stores to choose from), but no one had it. Then I found it in the clearance section for 1/2 off. I bought all 5 bags. As it turns out, it was the store brand. He likes a little sugar and when he has coffee out, he has 1/2 and 1/2. Next thing you know, I'll have to order it online.

    I bought him one of those Keurig mini things that only makes one cup at a time when his coffee maker broke last month. He protested up and down, left and right. He hated it! However, somehow, I am able to make it work correctly and deliciously. Go figure...

    I only became a coffee drinker when iced coffee and frappa's became the rage. Now I grind my own for a single pot, ice it, love trying new ones too.

    As a little child, my grandmother would make iced coffee. Black and in a pitcher, much the way we drink iced tea.

    Occasionally, I will take the leftovers from the morning pot, mix it with some creamer, and put that in the refrigerator. Makes for a wonderful midmorning snack.
