We’re investing in an esperesso maker.

French press! Keurig makes a weak ass cup of coffee IMO- and so much waste!

I sometimes enjoy making cuban coffee using my moka pot!

On the daily though, I have a french press.  I grind it using a hand grinder.  I get the most even grind this way, and I find it calming.  Something about putting lots of love into making my coffee makes it even better.  I only use filtered water and fresh beans.  

Sometimes I will make my own cold brew with a giant glass jug.  I let it steep at least 12 hours then I filter it out and we keep it in the fridge all week.  UGH.

I’m a coffee freak.

We have a Delonghi espresso machine and buy fresh ground coffee.. yum. Sometimes I make a cappuccino but usually just an espresso.

I hit the “on” button on our Mr. Coffee and drink it. No sugar, no milk. Either some fancy flavor (lately pumpkin) or classic roast. 

Basic coffee drinker over here. #imboring

I have a Keurig. I like the maxwell house original medium roast and green mountain Vermont country blend but I can never find it in stores (except when I was in Vermont) :(. I occasionally order it off amazon. I do almond milk and 1/4th a sweet n low packet. I know I know so bad but I’m trying to go without. I used to use 1 packet per coffee but now I make a packet last 4 cups. That’s my go to only because it’s in the healthiest that I can personally go. I can’t do black or sugar in the raw etc. But when I really wanna treat myself I get a cup from 711 with the international delight French vanilla creamer. So yummy!

I use this Kitchen Aid brewer that emulates a pour over. I got it with a Williams Sonoma gift card we got as a wedding gift. It takes a little longer than a regular coffee maker because it gets the water very hot. Mine is red!

I drink my coffee with a bit of half and half or milk.

petitebee08:  Pour over for me! I’m able to get a perfect cup of coffee, never burnt or bitter. I usually only drink Caribou Coffee. My favorites lately have been Lakeshore blend and Real Inspiration. But I also have some Starbuck’s Kimono Dragon which I go to when I want a really dark, rich cup of goodness. 

I drink my coffee black or with a tiny bit of skim milk at home, just because I want to enjoy the flavor more. But if I’m out in public and drinking less than fantastic coffee I will add cream or sugar to hide the taste.

French press and a milk frother. I also grind the beans myself.

I love coffee! Easily a 3 sometimes 4 cup drinker a day. I know that sounds like a lot but it is the only thing I drink other than water and sometimes hot chocolate. I have a Keurig and use regular ground coffee with reusable K-Cup pods. Usually Starbucks coffee when I can get it on sale. I drink my coffee black but sometimes will add in some seasonal flavored creamer. I’ve also added some hot chocolate mix into it, it is not bad.

I go to the local Caribou Coffe near my house and order my coffee.
