    Not a caffeine drinker, but when I need to get work done, 6oz of regular black coffee with some milk to balance it out. Thats it

    I have been putting star anise in my coffee (break it up and put it in the k cup thing you can use grounds in) the last few weeks. Its actually a good sweetener if you want to avoid sugar.

    I use a Espresso pot, which is like three shots I think? I put maybe like a half cup of Rice milk, instead of regular milk, has a little sweetness to it, but other than that no sugar

    Any coffee with foam on it, like cappuccino or anything like it, hate Arabic coffee (even if i am Arabian), it any non sweet with milk coffee.
    But if i have to choose between tea or coffee, i will choose tea, or mate.

    BTW, this is "Mate":

    See, I don’t really agree with that. Most days I drink, in excess of, 5 litres of coffee - nope, that’s not an exaggeration, I actually do. All freshly ground from beans, I have a bean-to-cup machine which is just awesome. I also get most of my beans from a little artisan place which freshly roasts the beans on the actual day they send them to you, so you’re getting the best you possibly can, unless you roast your own - which I am considering.

    But I can go days without having a coffee at all and it doesn’t put me up nor down. So this coffee addiction, need it to function nonsense is just that, nonsense.

    Maybe if you have an addictive personality, but I don’t, as the dozens of stories I wouldn’t be allowed to put in print would attest to :D

    That's enough to kill a man.
    Some people don't seem to be affected by caffeine, I guess you're one of them. But there is definitely truth to the addictiveness of it. It can affect your sleep quality if you drink a lot of it or drink it late in the day, which means you never get a proper nights sleep, so every morning you rely on coffee to wake up, plus, you get a tolerance to the caffeine which means you need more of it to wake up.

    It’d take more than coffee to kill me :P But I do agree there’s probably an element of it some people could find addictive. I just like the taste and as they say, everything in moderation apart from excess :D

    Black coffee from ground beans. French press is ok. Instant coffee tastes like feet.

    I can't stand instant coffee. I like it freshly pressed, mild beans, no sugar, lots of milk.

    Not coffee, but I enjoy drinking green Sencha tea to my breakfast.

    Wonderful taste. Just don't buy the cheap bagged tea, it's awful...

    I really hope next week (then finally everything runs round again) I get more time in the morning and then again I make my favorite coffee every single morning:

    Only Doppio Macchiato (for those who don't know what that is, its basically a double espresso with a drop of milk, so not to disrupt/break the crema)

    Truly the most terrifying thing, making an Irish Coffee whilst customers watch you haha. Although I remember one guy’s wife tell me that her husband had a no cream diet therefore he couldn’t drink it. I’m fairly certain most Irish Coffees will have cream...

    re Coffee, I only buy mine on the go now and it’s usually cappuccino or flat white which is expensive but convenient.

    I generally don't drink coffee as it's caused me to have anxiety problems in the past.
    I do love me some tea, but I can't drink too much of that either
