    Sugar or sweetener makes it drinkable, but it tends to upset my stomach and I just can't get past the bitterness no matter how many times I try. Sweetened black coffee will do in a pinch if I need caffeine and have no milk on hand though.

    It balances the flavonoids of raw black coffee with a creamy richness however I mainly put the coconut oil in there for the MCT fat's and it's fat burning-metabolism boosting properties and also to slow the absorption of caffeine for a smoother experience. I think they go really well together!

    Interesting. I have to admit I’ve never really looked into the science of coffee. Beyond how to make a good one that is.

    Clearly it’s something I should investigate more thoroughly, seems like I have a lot to learn. And I do like to learn.

    I did a bit of research on brewing up the perfect coffee and discovered the coffee siphon. It's supposed to beat other brewing methods in flavour. You also need beans that are freshly ground and were roasted no more than three weeks ago. Maybe I'll give it a shot someday.

    How did you brew it exactly? I ran out of cream the other day and tried replacing it with coconut oil. The end result was a layer of coconut oil on the top which wasn't nice at all.

    I just treated myself to a new Beko CEG7425 Bean-to-cup machine. Loving it so far. Of course the beans are the most important part.
    But those aside, this thing grinds to exactly the consistency I like and dispenses a really lovely coffee.
    So far I’ve just had Americano, espresso and cappuccino but they’ve all bean (pun intended) delicious.

    It’s now my favourite way to make a brew. My drip filters/traditional pump espresso/cafetières are all now in storage. Can’t get rid of them, despite the wife’s whinging that they’re taking up too much space :D

    I like all kinds of coffee. Black, with milk, with milk and some sugar. Latte, flavoured latte (hazelnut or almond syrup is really nice). Espresso...
    But my two absolute favourites are: Cappuccino and Cortado.

    Cortado... I love cortado, I miss having it all the time at coffee shops like I did back in Argentina... Germany is a "bit" lacking regarding cafés and coffee IMHO.

    I still can prepare it home though.

    Caffè espresso, one and a half spoons of white sugar, no milk,cream or other types of sweeteners. Also I can't stand American coffee, fite me.

    (...Yeah, I'll be the first to admit it - I may not be nearly as rigid as your stereotypical Italian when it comes to food but I kinda am regarding the coffe I drink ^^")

    Nothing wrong with that at all, we all have our preferences. Personally I only have Americano if I’m putting some milk in it, basically just so it’s more like a drip filter coffee.


    Other than that it’s a traditional espresso, or either a cappuccino or latte if I’m in the mood for something more milky. I’m not really fussy, so long as whatever I’m having is based on a good espresso and you can still taste it. Is that fussy? Meh, I don’t care :D


    I do agree with you about an espresso though, I don’t think it should have milk, cream or whitener. I just like it to have a nice crema. To me it’s not a traditional espresso if it doesn’t have a properly balanced crema. Maybe I’m wrong, I don’t care, but it’s how I like it.....


    ..... Ok. Maybe I am a bit fussy :D

    These are how I drink coffee at home. I nuke some water in a mug 3/4 full of water for 2:00 minutes, then stir in a heaping tablespoon of the instant coffee, and when it gets foamy on top, I'll fill the rest of the cup to the top with one of these flavored creamers.

    When drinking instant coffee (which I do quite often too), I boil my water and pour it over 3 heaping teaspoons of coffee.
    Wait.. You said tablespoon, lol. 3 tsp = 1tbsp so it's the same. :D

    I saw a video with an american who lived in Sweden, and he was so proud that he had become such a coffee drinker here (since we drink a lot of strong coffee).
    So now, he put TWO teaspoons into his mug!

    I was like... lol.

    I cannot stand instant coffee anymore. Had too much of it.
    Buuuuut it's pretty cheap and easy soooo.

    I love my coffee fresh from the brewer, and strong. Strong is best.

    I drink a real coffee at home naturally -- fresh brew and natural from plants.. Not from any restaurant, Starbuck, Donut Dunkins or fast food because they are fake and horrible taste. Never understand those people went to those stores and grab the cup of coffee. YUCK! GROSS!

    I drink decaf coffee, no sugar, and black. Health. I drink once in a while. Also, I drink the GREEN tea with no sugar mostly. I prefer healthy drinks from fresh brew.

    I can't stand drip coffee, since I've been drinking instant my entire life from age 14 until now, age 35 and a half. And it's not that the drip coffee isn't string enough, it just doesn't taste as robust as the Folgers instant. Even with creamer added, I can taste the difference.

    I like home brewed coffee the most but will buy one from a cafe if I think I need one. The $4 AUD spent on a coffee is worth it for most. It takes half an hour to brew a coffee at home the way I like it and the bit of money spent is worth the time saved.
