So, on a forum I'm reading someone is asking for advice on how many calories in a Flat white made of cream. I was like WTF who does that.

But that leads me to, How do you have your coffee?

Black and strong

(and my thread of the year! so thanks)

I can handle Moconna instant but I prefer cafe proper long blacks that are thick like treacle

Anyway I can get it!

Just not instant or pod.

In summer I like a GOOD ice coffee, made on real coffee, not syrup.

I like a mocha in winter sometimes, I like a dirty chai(chai with a shot of coffee).
I love coffee.

Strong, soy, other than that, I dont care. As long as it is there. I need it. I want one now. Closest bought coffee to me is so weak its like dirty water. I use sachets at work but I am out, so your thread has made me sad. lmaoooo

There's no "all of the above" option?

I usually have a small latte with a double shot. But sometimes have a short black. Other times I'll have a dirty chai.

The saddest coffee in  the world - decaf.  (I'm not really supposed to have coffee at all so sometimes I cheat and have a decaf)

I don’t drink coffee. I love the smell of it, I could sit in a coffee shop all day and smell roasting beans. But I can’t stand the taste of it.

Skinny latte. I struggle with the creaminess of full cream. I need super strong coffee to combate it.

I can have nespresso at a pinch.

Prefer my aeropress if travelling.

Or a good strong cup of milky tea, to instant coffee.

Latte, but strong. We use our Otto to make approx 6 million cups a day. Small children = need coffee

I was thinking when I first found out I was pregnant 'what the heck am I going to do now?' but Moccona decaf was actually quite good!

(I checked and they said one real one was fine so I did have one normal one a day then the decaf - I still have a decaf sometimes now)

I ask for for flat white. Therefore I usually get latte. I used to get cranky and scoop off the excess foam, now I've given up.

At work I make my own long with a dash though, so I can have 2 or 3 without using loads of scarce office milk.

I see DH grind his teeth when he orders a FLAT WHITE and it comes with chocolate on top of the extra foam

speaking of tea

DH and I like what they call 'builders tea' as in very strong (and my mum)

the IL's have what can only be described is milk with a splash of tea in it

#20 lozoodle

Skim flat white with an extra shot.

#21 SelceLisbeth

I actually dont mind my decaf coffees. I cant tell the difference with. The only time I dont love coffee is when I am unwell.

I was the same. I drunk decaf for years, thought I was my digestive issue. Turns out it gluten.

#23 Feraldasherie

Soy latte, one a day, morning only. I prefer the taste with soy milk, but also I don't need sugar with it.

At work, there is Nescafe, and I might have one in the afternoon, but I don't count it as coffee.

#24 dadwasathome

Posted 01 April 2019 - 10:13 AM

Black, usually espresso, but could be cold drip or pour over. Or plunger if I've stupidly forgotten to buy beans and I'm desperate last Friday morning and pre-ground beans DP uses are all there is in the house.

#25 BreezaH

Posted 01 April 2019 - 10:15 AM

I like to mix it up - mostly between latte, flat white (my cafe knows the difference!) and a cap but sometimes I'll have a mocha or a dirty chai. In summer I love an iced coffee with ice cream.

I'd drink it every day if I could but unfortunately I'm a bit sensitive to it so it's 2-3 a week.
