If we are talking ‘chain coffee’ I am a stereotypical Canadian girl who loves her Tim Hortons double doubles.

At my old work we had a Keurig machine. I LOVED Timothys Rainforest Espresso roast or Midnight Magic roast with vanilla creamer (brand of creamer irrelevant). During the holidays I loved gingerbread flavoured creamers.

I don’t work there anymore, and am pregnant so I can’t have coffee anyways…but I REALLY want to buy a Keurig machine for my home after I have my baby as a reward to keep me going through those long nights!

Sweet.Sugar.Rose :  we LOOOOVE coffee at our house! So much so that we gave out coffee as wedding favors, haha.

Right now I am on a specific diet so I get just straight black coffee (boring) so I always try to find roasts that taste rich and have a lot of flavor on their own. Surprisingly, I love the Dunkin’ Donuts blends (from the grocery store, not AT DD); I think chocolate donut, original, and cinnamon are my favorite. To that end, in plain coffee when I can’t add any cream or sugar, I love a couple drops of vanilla extract and some cinnamon. Yum!

When I can have whatever I want, I really love just a good steamed milk + coffee situation. Although, my guilty pleasure that I picked up when studying in Jamaica: really strong (Blue Mountain if you can find it) coffee, a little sweetened condensed milk, and a little raw sugar. OH EM GEE it is sinful and very rich and your teeth will def rot out but hey who needs teeth anyway I mean you don’t have to chew coffee am I right

mrstea83 :  where do you live? I live in the BR area and they sell Cafe du Monde products in many stores! Including beignet mix! 

My daily coffee is a mixture of dark roast and the Dunkin Donuts bagged coffee, usually caramel coffee cake. I mix dark and light coffee because light is too light and dark is too dark lol. I use caramel macchiato creamer and 2 Splenda packets.

I love seasonal creamers! Pumpkin pie spice, sugar cookie, and gingerbread are my favorites.

As I sit here drinking my second cup of coffee I can say with conviction that I will drink literally any kind of coffee you put in front of me (except blueberry or coconut flavored).

I drink way too much every day but it keeps me going and I love it! Right now I’m doing low carb& sugar so I know coffee is kind of a no no but I’ve been only drinking it lately with a drop of half and half, which is very boring but I still love it!

mrshmc1204 :  I’m in Mobile! PP posted that it’s usually in Rouse’s, but I’ve never thought to check! We haven’t lived here too long so I didn’t even think about it. 

I feel stupid now though 😳😂

mrstea83 :  It’s understandable if you’re new to the area! If you can’t find the Café du Monde I recommend giving Community Coffee New Orleans blend a try.

I love a good coffee, black with a dash of cinnamon! Otherwise I get the lactose free half and half and add some cinnamon. Mmm..bliss!

I mostly drink espresso or cappuccino.  Occasionally black coffee when I just need a coffee and that’s all there is.  At home I switch between a few different espressos but my old standby is Cafe Bustelo.  Sometimes I am too lazy to make a cappuccino & I just splash a little plain creamer in my espresso instead.  I take a little bit of sugar with my first cup of the day.  I recently switched to non dairy creamer/milk to help with iron absorption with my morning pill.  Non dairy creamer/milk makes me sad.

A shot of espresso poured over a scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream or gelato is heaven.

I take my coffee black most of the time and usually make it at home, but on the go I’ll hit McDonald’s or Jack in the Box. They never mess up a cup of coffee!

If I do put anything in my coffee, it’s Bailey’s Irish cream (after a social dinner, not in the morning before work, though I’m sure it would make the day a lot more tolerable), or around the holidays I’ll use peppermint flavored creamer. I also do love pumpkin spice lattes, though that’s one of the few things I like at Starbucks.

catsanddogs :  Creamer (in the US) refers to non-dairy creamer.  It’s just sugar and oil, and it’s disgusting LOL.  It can be powdered or liquid but these days I usually see liquid unless it’s like the cheapo office coffee supplies.

And I’m not sure I understand your question about cream – yes Americans sometimes put cream in coffee?  Is that weird?  I guess half and half is more common – my usual is iced coffee black with half and half.  

In most coffee shops there are several milk choices – nonfat, 2%, whole, half and half, soy, almond, etc.
