    i don't go to coffee shops enough to know the fancy names, but a quaduple latte or something large with french cream or whatever. last thing i got from the Dutch Bros. by my friends apartment was coconut something. it was tasty. usually i just want something large,sweet, and with a kick, and I'll drink it all in five/ten minutes or so.

    I only drink coffee for the high so it's black. I often take a glass of water to rehydrate.

    Water is key ingredient though taking into account over 90% of a cup of coffee is water, so get a fine one if quality is what you're after.

    I pretty much never order coffee but I usually drink it black.

    Well if I'm lazy I get dark roast coffee at starbucks with a little cream added in, but recently I've got the equipment to manufacture my own coffee.

    So usually I get whole bean dark/bold coffees; rich, earthy, bold, full-bodied type flavors
    Then I grind the beans into ground and keep them in a jar
    From which on occasion I'll use a french press to brew coffee (which is very simple to use)

    This process is very simple for me and I do it regularly;

    If I'm trying to be fancy I'll get some sweetened condensed milk and add it to the bottom of a glass and then pour in rich turkish coffee or french press brewed coffee.

    Both methods of brewing usually have a very full body to them and leaves some silt at the bottom, with the sweetened condensed milk this usually falls to the bottom with the silt and creates a good combination.

    See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnamese_iced_coffee

    Usually though I don't go into that much detail, I just do the basic thing.

    Not trying to be all fancy-pants about it, I used to just use Mr.Coffee, but it would make shitty coffee and would require maintenance on the machine and stuff, a simple stainless steel french press I find to be a superior tool for coffee making.



    That picture should give you an idea of how it works and why its simpler, unless your mechanically retarded.

    thats pretty badass lucid. i wanna try coffee from a french press but i don't want to spend money on one.

    btw i've made homemade creamer with sweetened condensed milk and vanilla almond milk and its really good. i'd recommend it for people who would use it enough but it goes bad too quickly for me to do on the regular. its really sweet so a little goes a long way.

    Yep I don't really like playing Martha Stewart too much so I rarely do fancy stuff but I find it really nice to be able to make a good cup of coffee at my place, especially when its a rainy day etc.

    i get free coffee at work which i usually drink black (and drink all day long) so i rarely go to the coffee shop just for regular coffee.

    unless i'm having a day where i want to get a coffee with a couple extra shots in it.
    in which case i go for the dark roast and might or might not put sugar or cream in it depending on my mood.

    Usual Starbucks order is a double tall peppermint mocha. Frappuccino for hot days. I don't really go to coffee shops very often though.

    Either black no sugar or a latte, yeah, there's no sense to that, no milk or lots.

    When it's hot I have an iced latte no sugar and when it's cold I drink cappuccino with a little sugar.

    I'm *very* picky about coffee though. I can't stand that ashy shit. The burnt beans must be removed by hand.

    I don't have any particular coffee drink that I constantly buy; I tend to go for something not horribly expensive that may just as easily be tea-based. With that said, my most common choices have been cinnamon rooibos tea or lattes with vanilla or caramel syrup (usually sugar-free now).

    Whatever I can afford.. which usually means just black coffee. If I really need a high, I'll take a (double) espresso. If my parents are paying, I'll try something new regardless of the price.

    For four years while I was working full time, I was getting Flat Whites every week day with the exception of a Cappuccino on Fridays. I've been told by people far trendier than me that Flat Whites are "such a suit coffee", hahaha. I've started ordering Cappuccinos as my regular hit since starting uni.

    If I ever have instant, I almost always have it black, but we've got an espresso machine at home, so I don't have to worry about that now.

    No sugars or sweeteners ever.

    Gingerbread or chai latte with obscene amounts of nutmeg. Fuck the coffee. Control the spice, control the universe.

    Coffee's not really my thing. A couple months back I had a small cup or two with some cream and sugar and it wasn't bad, but it always seems to make me a little jittery and makes my stomach churn like a washing machine. Probably just need to drink less until I got used to it.

    On a normal day dark roast with 2% milk.
    On a fancy day, a vanilla and/or hazelnut latte (sometimes both, sometimes just one or the other). Starbucks gets them just right, in other places I ask for half the pumps.

    Oh if we're talking about tea... In contrast to coffee, I definitely dont like sweetened tea -- i think it takes away from the flavor. I do enjoy a little milk in tea though... especially for spiced teas, like indian-style teas. Green or black tea i can drink with or without milk... i like it both ways depending on what i'm in the mood for.
