We just use a $20 coffee maker from Target or use our French Press. I usually drink my coffee black or with a splash of creamer.

gray15 :  I hate my keurig. It’s clunky and unnecessary countertop clutter, wasteful, and makes weak coffee if you want anything more than a sip of coffee. When I’m out, I’ll usually order Starbucks’ Pike Place, and when I’m not out, I use Starbucks Via Pike Place or Cafe Verona instant coffee packets (believe it or not, it tastes just the same!). That way, I don’t have to use a clunky coffee maker ๐Ÿ™‚

And I take my coffee with Splenda and enough creamer to make it beige lmao

I drink my coffee like an addict with severe withdrawal, sigh.. We keep talking about buying a nice espresso machine but Nespresso is way too convenient. Occasionally, I hack my Nespresso with Illy grounds and I like that so much better. When I’m out, I get a small cappuccino, no sugar. Or an espresso with sugar. There are great coffee shops near where I live so I’m grateful for that. Side note: I was in Spain last year, and was astounded by the quality of 30 cent espressos in their vending machines! I wish we had that here.

Home: Strong black coffee in a regular drip coffee maker. I make my own morning coffee every day.

Out: I like iced coffee in the summer or a cappuccino with no sugar any time of year.

Mornings: 2 cups coffee (weekdays tend to be regular drip & weekends espresso) with a splash of heavy cream.  Afternoons: espresso, plain.  Occasionally I’ll make a cappuccino on a weekend morning.

I rarely get coffee out but when I must I get a cappuccino. If it’s after a meal then espresso, plain.

Once in a while I pour an espresso shot over a scoop of vanilla ice cream at home as a treat.

Home: I only drink iced coffee, and got a cheap cold brew Takeya pitcher on Amazon that had tons of good reviews. Works great and is ridiculously easy to make. I’ve been using Bizzy course grounds, and it’s good, but not amazing. So I’m still on the hunt for the yummiest smoothest grounds. I like almond creamer since I don’t do dairy.

Out: I’ll still get iced coffee (my go to is Philz Ecstatic). In the winter, I like hot white chocolate mochas to build up my nice fluffy layer of winter fat ๐Ÿ˜‚

Black, flavored if available. Plain ol’ medium/dark roast if not. I despise my Keurig and the muddy dirt water it produces. Hubby surprised me with a Ninja Coffee Bar but I really want to order an AeroPress. I also hate burnt bitter Starbucks. I love a good strong black brew with crema. Yum! 

I cant do cream or sugar because I completely crash afterwards, which defeats the purpose of coffee in the first place. 

My mantra: There is a time and a place for decaf. Never, and in the trash. ๐Ÿ˜†

For the first time in our lives we bought a $300 coffee maker, it’s amazing! It makes such tasty coffee that we both now drink ours black.

purplepixel :  What did you buy, if you don’t mind me asking? I’m on the hunt for a better appliance. My husband didn’t read reviews before he bought the Ninja and I’m waiting for it to die any day now.

gray15 :  We have a really simple pourover set up with a plastic coffee dripper. Put the dripper over a coffee pitcher or mug, put the coffee filter in, put the grounds in, when the water  boils pour a little to let the coffee bloom for 30 seconds, then pour slowly over the next 3 minutes or so.

I drink my filter coffee from a mug with my mouth.

Is there any other way of drinking coffee?

I have a Nespresso and I drink a lot of lattes. I don’t usually buy coffee drinks anymore because I can just make a latte and bring it with me.
