Decaff or caff?
No milk, milk, dairy-free milk?
Sugar?
Syrup (flavour?)?
Moccas, Americano, espresso, etc ?
Kenyan, Italian, etc.?

Me? Black Americano or filter. No sugar. I like Kenyan coffee. No caffeine after my after-lunch coffee.

Not one for coffee, maybe once or twice a month. Flat white when I do.
Now tea, I love earl grey, I prolly have about 5 cups a week.
My friend likes going for coffee and having a chat, I tag along.

Have you tried the one from Bali, pretty expensive coffee, you get it 3rd hand. Most expensive in the world I believe.??

At home it's Lavazza, for breakfast during the week it's put through a cafetiere for convenience. At the weekend it's either brewed on the stove top, or using a lovely old 70's percolator that gurgles away, filling the kitchen with an amazing aroma. Drunk black, or with a dash of milk.

When I'm out and about I favour McDonalds coffee. It's strong, nicely flavoured and cheap. A plain white coffee costs £1.59. Waitrose is also very good, and you can take your own cup. Can't abide places like Starbucks or Costa with all the expensive, obesity fuelling cr*p they put into their coffee. That makes me somewhat of a hypocrite, because I have just remembered that on holiday I often enjoy an iced frappe, complete with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

I'm not a fan of coffee - tea for me. PG tips 'builder's tea' strength. If I do drink coffee its 100% Arabica from Aldi. The best instant coffee on the market IMHO - and the cheapest! On the rare occasions I drink it its with almond milk. Quite a lot of almond milk.

I never order coffee when out - if I have anything its a glass of wine or a beer!

Preferably iced with cream and sugar. When I'm craving it, I make a large batch of very strong coffee and simple syrup, let them cool, then mix in a pitcher and put it in the refrigerator, then have enough for several days, adding cream as I make me a glass each morning.

Black, weaker than most, and sweet. Used to have it with milk no sugar, but when I was out hiking we always had it black with sugar and since having to stop all dairy I just went black with sugar.
As for what, well I much prefer instant granules. I think we're on French style strength 3 on one of the major brands that name escapes me right now (bedtime here).

I couldn't drink coffee iced as it feels like my brain is being pulled out of both my ears - sideways. I'm like :o_o::o_o::o_o::o_o::o_o:
