Heh, this discussion reminds me of some memories around coffee subject... Almost every interview I went they bragged about the coffee machine or quality. No one even asked if I drink coffee, when I told them I don't some of them couldn't believe that or looked at me in a funny way, even got the line "you are not a programmer then" :)) My secret is no caffeine

I usually just drink instant coffee with some milk and sugar - extra strong but not very hot, but that's not my favorite.
My favorite is an extra strong double espresso with a spoon of fine vanilla ice cream - or as it's called in Italy - Affogato. No need for cream or sugar - the ice cream gives it all the extra flavor you need.

You'll probably find it in the desert section of any good Italian restaurant, or just ask for an affogato...

At home we have a grinder + french press, veranice. I put a little bit of creamer in it. At ye olde work office we got ourselves a fancy pants wanna-be kuerig: needless to say it is not as good as french press freshly grouns coffee, but i like the convenience of a quick cup.

We buy beans from sprouts or Target, lots of flavors to choose from. In partial to dark and medium roasts.

Creamer is a toss up tbh. At work we have all kinds, butterscotch, vanilla, hazelnut. I love hazelnut 🥰

I'm not really too knowledgable on the different types and brews. I usually just make instant coffee with some milk for colour and 1-2 spoons of sugar. A max of 2 cups per day.

Coffee has health benefits but it's also a diuretic and I don't wanna become too dependent on it

Even I consume only 5-6 cups of java, but only black, some times milk, but never the sugar.😂😂

At 3:45 am the coffee maker starts and is ready when I leave the house. Black and cheap - what ever is on sale. I’m home by 1 and it switches to celestial seasons caffeine free tea’s { black cherry, peppermint, apple cinnamon, sleepy time} until bed.

Well, you can find the seeds in most of the coffee shops and on the internet easily, I usually buy them from a specific coffee shop and have them ground there so that it is fresh. Then I cold brew it at home in vast amounts and have coffee for several days. I think you can find some tutorials on how to cold brew home easily.

My go to is hot coffee, several creams, 1 sugar. Although I like iced coffee - it goes too fast and is sometimes unpredictable in strength. Unless you make it yourself

I don't add sugar. Not at all.

How do you prefer it: medium coffee or hard coffee?

I like every kind of coffee. Milk, sugar, no milk, no sugar, turkish, espresso, instant, filter, moka pot. Coffee is inherently good, not because of the condiments or the way it is made 😎

With just black coffee, you get to feel coffee in each sip, condition is coffee quality should be good.
