How do you take your coffee?

I always try to make my coffee, as good as Starbucks, with the flavored syrups... I even buy, the coffee grains that they sell. But I never seem to get it right! It usually comes out horribly strong! So about a week ago about the Dunkin Donuts brand coffee, thinking that it might be a little easier... Boy was I wrong!!!!!!!! It taste like crap compared to the real thing! So how about you? How do you make your coffee? Or do you prefer to buy it from some sort of restaurant? If you have any tips! Please let me know, I desperately need it to wake up in the morning!

Hey BFF!!! I'm like you I like the flavors and all of Starbucks coffee, but I sooo can't afford it! So I just use the Folgers Gentle Ease coffee cause the regular stuff makes my stomach hurt..weird I know!! And I add a spoon full of Raspberry syrup (YUM-O!!!) and a packet of the Splenda Flavors for Coffee stuff, I get the Mocha & French Vanilla and take turns with that kind of sugar! It isn't as good as Starbucks but I love it!!

For me, it is simple...hot water + coffee + sugar + cream. I hate those coffees that are "decorated" with something. I want it as simple as it get. I even buy a 3-in-1 pack in the market. I am a self - confessed coffee addict so I try my best to lower my caffeine intake as much as possible by having a simple coffee. Having "overly decorated" coffee will not be good to me after all.

I drink cold coffee, i always prepare a pitcher of cold coffee shake in my refrigerator. i would have one glass in the morning and another in the afternoon. Its a large glass. about Half Liter. I very particular about the coffee i use, its all about the creamer, i prefer the Irish cream or Hazel nut and with little sugar only.

Hi Mrfdg! Well. Cold coffee in the winter doesn't float my boat! But in the summer I love it! So you drink about a liter of coffee a day? Wow! That seems like a lot! Well thanks for responding! Take care!
