    With a splash of cold milk. I used to drink it black, but the milk gets it down to a temperature I like faster.

    My morning coffee comes via K-Cups. No cream nor sugar need be added depending on the type. Othersie I go to Dunkin Donuts and get a medium double/double.

    I usually opt for cocoa in my coffee.

    I use a regular 12-cup Mr. Coffee and drink 1/3 to half a pot every morning.

    [Cue me sounding like I'm spoiled] I can't stand cheap coffee. Folgers and Maxwell House taste like sludge. I buy Trader Joe's or Starbucks, flavored when I can get it. Trader Joe's gingerbread coffee and Winter Blend are in my kitchen now.

    I drink it with a splash of half and half or soy creamer, no sugar.

    This is my macchiato-making baby. Behold the Jura Ena 9:

    The steam pump gave up after less than a year, but Jura sent me a brand new machine, and the second one has worked flawlessly so far. There's a newer model now with a sealed coffee hopper to keep the beans fresh. As I previously reported in the first world problems thread: taking into account asset depreciation, the cost of filtered water, coffee, milk, power usage and the opportunity cost of things like service calls, we're paying under a dollar a cup.

    Made in a new Mr. Coffee drop pot, and I use cream and sugar most times in it.

    I get the freshest beans I can, and grind 'em right before a pour over brew in a Chemex. Got a Buono kettle for Christmas, so it's even better.

    No sugar but yes, cream. (Half and Half)

    wait a second, wait a second, wait a second.

    you buy expensive fancypants coffee for your coffee maker that your roommate is always stealing from you, and then you put flavored creamer in it?

    We got a Keurig machine for Christmas. Wife loves it, I hate it.

    Just a hot cup of Maxwell House for me, with non-dairy creamer and lots of sugah. I don't enjoy those foo-foo coffee drinks. I'm low maintenance.

    I prefer medium to dark. Don't be giving me none of that pansy light decaf crap.

    We have a jura machine at work, it's tremendous.

    I prefer having a "portafilter"-type machine at home, for three reasons: (1) like having the extra "control"; (2) my wife only drinks decaf, so that would be a hassle on an automatic machine, (3) if I only had to press a button for a cup of coffee, I'd drink WAY too much.

    I tend to like mine best with a bit of French Vanilla creamer, when I drink it at all.
