How do you drink your coffee? With or without sugar?

Since I can't really stand not to drink a cup a day, I've tried not to add sugar for the past weeks. How about yours?

No sugar, just milk. If you really need an energy boost, keep some chocolate handy. Or try drinking more coffee...

Black -- meaning nothing. No milk. No Sugar. etc.... (sorry, for the qualification of what "black" is, but some coffee shops have an opinion that "black" means only no milk).

I prefer South Indian Filter Coffer, that is strong and little sugar.

I used to love instant coffee from Nescafe etc .. but once I landed in Bangalore, I stick to filtered coffee other wise my preference is ginger tea (again with little sugar)

Black. No sugar or milk. If I need an extra boost in the morning, I get a blueberry muffin.

Milk + Coffee + Sugar (quantity that removes the bitterness and add little sweetness)

Sugar should never even be in the same room with coffee. But I do like cream in mine.

I seldom drink coffee anymore - I've given up caffeinated beverages for the most part (am I still allowed to be a programmer??).

but when i DO have a cup of coffee, i drink coffee. Not some coffee-like beverage with milk, sugar or anything else to spoil the taste.

Depends.

If I am really tired and need the pick me up I will put some sugar and creamer in.

If I am drinking QUALITY coffee, or not overly tired, I take it black.

If I am in Starbucks, I must be waiting for someone else. I mean seriously.......

I don't know about anyone else, but I think IHOP (if you've never heard of it, it is a restaraunt) has some of the best coffee I've ever had from a dining establisment. It is VERY delicious.

Oh, and coffee and Bailey's is always welcome.

I need a 20-oz latte (from Dunn Bros) every morning. After that, I'm usually good for the day.

If you're a Brandy or Bailey lover, why would you mix it with coffee?

The way I've heard it explained is that your brain has natural inhibitors that prevent your synapses from firing too fast. Caffeine inhibits the inhibitors.
