Coffee. If you don't drink coffee you are missing out. I have been an avid coffee connoisseur since I was like 13. I woke up today and decided to skip my morning coffee and had caffeine headaches the entire day it was terrible.

If you hate boiling an entire pot of coffee, I highly suggest you get a Keurig coffee maker. I have previously told you all this, but I just want to say it again.

NOW in terms of what you put in the coffee....

Black coffee is the holy grail of hardcore coffee drinking. It is manliness in a cup.

But if you aren't like my dad who can pound back Scotch on the rocks without blinking, you may need to lighten it up a bit.

 SUGAR IN THE RAW is the best sugar there is, hands down. DO NOT put in any artificial sweetener. Stevia, Nutrasweet, Sweet & Low, my least favorite.. SPLENDA all taste fake, and are very "thin". Real sugar adds a bit of syrup-iness to it, you can feel it and taste it. About one half packet of sugar in the raw per 16oz cup.

Now for creamer... some use whole milk, some use skim milk, some use half and half. HALF AND HALF is the best to use, it is delicious, and really complements the coffee with its thick liquidy body. Whole milk is the next best alternative, and of course skim milk I only use when in a bind and my fridge is empty.

Organic half-and-half is amazing (organic milk is amazing as well for your milk drinking cravings)

  1. Gotta go with organic products, after seeing all of the chemicals used on crops and animals, organic is the only way to go.

  8. LOVE coffee. Straight up black for me. I don't drink it too often, though, so as not to get addicted. Sure as hell enjoy it when I do, though!

  10. I can't stand the smell or taste of coffee. To me, it's just disgusting. Do you have to learn to drink the stuff, or do you just naturally like or dislike it?

  18. Freakin' love coffee but it's a lot of sugar and calories. I've been trying to drink more tea but I still have a cup of coffee once every two days or so. Also, I completely agree with you about Sugar in the Raw. It tastes best with a cup of really good gourmet coffee and some condensed milk for creamer.
