    Follow up to the "make" thread I started, based on Swarden's recent comment there (Swarden is cream and sugar. His coffee, I mean, not Swarden himself. As far as I know, anyway. I'll shut up now.)

    I take heavy cream and that's it.

    First one is a latte. Second one is a latte. After that it's black and strong.

    Pardon my ignorance but what exactly is latte?

    A lot of hot milk & a strong shot of caffeine. When the milk is steamed you get a cappucino. In France they call it "cafe au lait", in Spain it's "cafe con lecce" and in Holland "koffie verkeerd" which means "coffee wrong". Never understood that last one I must admit. Strange bunch those Dutch :)

    Coffee is supposed to be hot and BLACK. Not cold and creamy.

    Put flour in a bowl. It's flour. Add milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, mix it up, and what do you have? You call it batter!
    Put coffee in a cup. It's coffee. Add milk, creamer, sugar, flavoring, mix it up, and what do you have? I have no idea - BUT DON'T CALL IT COFFEE!

    That being said, I drink coffee. :p

    :) Howdy! I usually like my coffee black. However, if I go out for dinner, I sometimes add cream to black coffee. Some dark roasts I may add a bit of cream and sugar, but most of the time just straight up black with no additives. I do not like flavored coffees (hazelnut, etc.). Always, Gene

    Black, nothing but the caffeine.

    Just creamer. I like black coffee, but it makes my dental veneers feel "rubbery" so I don't drink it much.

    I prefer cafe au lait. Probably as a result of growing up close to New Orleans. I get a kick out of someone telling me coffee should only be taken black.

    I do hope you know I had my tongue firmly planted in my cheek when I said coffee must only be had black.
    Black is how I enjoy mine. Please, it's your coffee. Enjoy it your way. :eatdrink013:

    What surprises me is that someone, somewhere, hasn't come up with the angle of caffienated shampoo, deodorant, shaving cream, cologne, etc.

    I admit, though, I'd be very tempted by shaving cream that smells just like fresh roasted coffee.
