How much cream do you put in your coffee?

I like 90% cream, 10% coffee. Hazelnut flavored is nice, french vanilla is best, sugar should be grainy on the tongue no matter how much you stir it, because there is just so much. What about you?

I like to use one teaspoon of powdered creamer and one teaspoon of sugar. I don't like the liquid creamer because it cools the coffee down too much. I like my coffee really hot. I can tolerate more or less creamer and sugar, I can even enjoy black coffee but I like it best with one of each.

I don't put any cream or milk in my coffee. I like coffee without any adulteration, just as hot and rich and bitter as it comes. The darkest, richest roast coffee is a perfect partner with a sweet dessert. But, if you put sugar in coffee, it becomes dessert.

I like 1 teaspoon sugar, about 2-3 tablespoons hazelnut flavored creamer. And I'm just spoiled enough that I had to buy a grinder/brewer so I can buy beans instead of already ground coffee.

I personally prefer cream of wheat in my coffee. It gives it a nice thick and gritty consistency. Just kidding. I like a shot of espresso in a cup of milk, preferably with some kind of flavor added like caramel or chocolate. I just can't put enough cream in regular coffee to make it taste good.

I dont put any cream in my coffee in general. Sometimes i will get some of the flavoured french vanilla coffee whiteners but most of the time nothing. When i do use it its just a shot to make it a creamy looking brown.

Outside of the occasional treat of fat-free french vanilla creamer, I only use skim milk in my coffee. Feel free to say "ewwwww" - everyone I know does LOL Oddly, I do use a half packet of artificial sweetener in tea, though, because some brands I find bitter. Anyway, with coffee, I'm so sensitive to the taste of sugar in it that if someone who uses sugar stirs their own coffee and then uses the same spoon to stir mine, I'll taste the sugar. Ridiculous, isn't it?
