Believe me I searched but couldn't find another poll. Maybe I fail at searching topics. What's your preference for coffee?

I love cuban coffee, basically espresso with sugar. A touch of cinnammon sometimes helps. You?

Regular coffee with cream.  Sometimes I'll put some fake sugar but I'm trying to cut down on all that.

My coffee of preference is  a Cortado from Spain.  But it is usually cold by the time it gets here.
 
I also like a Cafe Con Hielo when its hot.  But its hardly ever hot here! boo hoo!

I got into Cuban coffee last summer when I visited Key West.
 
But most of the time, just black coffee.  Sometimes a little sugar substitute if it's too bitter.

Regular coffee, black and strong. 

I will drink a latte, espresso, or Cuban when it's available, those are great too.  But on a day-to-day basis, I like it simple.

I love coffee - black and strong with brown sugar. Coffee does not love me.
 
When I was young coffee used to give me migraines, I never worked this out at the time because the correlation between drinking coffee and nausea and blurred vision followed by the red-mist-white-hot-knitting-needles-stabbing-in-the-eye-sockets-and-bed-pillows-made-from-spikes-piercing-into-my-brain-oh-god-oh-god-make-it-stop pain several hours later wasn't that obvious; I guess subconsciously I knew this because I stopped drinking coffee completely when I was 8 or 9 and the migraines went away but still I never made the connection. I started drinking coffee again when I was at University because it was convenient and that's what everyone else in the halls of residence was drinking - needless to say the migraines returned and I was still too stupid to make the connection and was foolishly drinking coffee as a restorative for the blinding-headaches that would always follow a migraine attack, as you would with a bad hangover - it was only later I discovered that drinking water in vast quantities was the only respite from migraine and that also reduced the post-migraine headaches by a considerable degree. Anyway, to cut a long story short, many years later in conversation with a fellow migraine sufferer she mentioned that chocolate could trigger her migraines - as a chocolate lover myself this was horrifying news so set about trying to see whether that was the cause - luckily it wasn't, unfortunately it was coffee, more specifically (because I refused to give up coffee completely) I found that instant coffee was an instant trigger but fresh brew was okay in moderation. I can still get the occasional unpleasant headaches from one cup of espresso but thankfully not a migraine.

I like girly-man coffee myself (and no Zima or "fruit beer" can be found in my fridge).  Incidentally, the most popular creamer among the enlisted men on one of my submarine trips was the hazelnut creamer.  I invite you to call those guys girly-men.  Wink

I drink it black mostly. At home, I prefer to grind the beans myself and use a Senseo one-cup maker, using an adapter to brew my own coffee instead of having to buy their more expensive pods.
I also use a French press if I feel like dealing with all the extra work. LOL
Have a couple of stove top aluminum espresso pots (small and large), an espresso/cappuccino maker, a 12-cup Mr. Coffee, and I also use instant that I mix with powdered creamer. LOL
But I mostly stick to the Senseo for a quick, easy cup.

I'll take coffee of almost any kind, except flavors. I do not like flavored coffee at all. Closest I get is the rare cafe mocha when it's cold and I want more caffeine than a hot chocolate offers. Big smile

There are some half decent instant coffees, but for preference, a good strong black coffee made fresh; no sugar, no cream (occasionally the tiniest drop of milk).

One of God's great gifts to the world.

Of course, you're not paying for the coffee, you're paying for the significant labor costs and for the designer cup.  If that's not worth 3 pounds, what is? [/sarcasm]

My coffee machine started acting up yesterday, and it appears there was a problem with it today too.  Seems the power shuts off before it's finished brewing.  Possibly a short circuit.  It created a bit of a panic this morning as I kept turning it back on so it could finish.  Probably time for a new machine.

Yep true Ivan, but one to speak in general about both countries in terms of distance the logic method to compare the distance unless otherwise classified would be between Lima and Santiago which is 1531.48 miles or 2464.61 kilometers.
This might not sound much but if you compare it to England which is a big Island
The UK is 683.5 miles (1100km) north to south and 302 miles (486 km) at its widest point.
England is 402 miles (667km) north to south and 302 miles (486 km) at its widest point.

The longest distance one can travel between two points in the UK is 840 miles

Yes, it's a huge distance between Santiago and Lima.And it's even longer by car, about 3,500 Kms by car.

And true our frontier is far in the south of Perú and far in the north of Chile.

I once went driving from Lima to Santiago (Then to Buenos Aires) and I wanted to leave the car in Chile and take a plane, 3,500 Kms. of desert is very long and boring trip on car, not even  my Prog cassettes and my old KP-500 helped.

Coffee should be hot as heck, black as night, and as strong as love.  Any cream or sugar in my coffee makes me sad.  Now, lattes (espresso, capachinos, frappes), those are another story.  I like them, and will drink them when I don't have to pay for them.  But, I don't consider it coffee, it's coffee flavored chocolate.

When we were 17 or 18, we were in the first year of university, and I hated coffee.

But all my friends liked to go to a bohemian coffee shop called Café Haiti, and asked for coffee, so started to drink cappuccinos, but with a lot of sugar and cream..

Now I drink my espresso with sugar (because Peruvian coffee is extremely strong), bu can't add milk or anything.

A few minutes later in the car, with my dad fortunately driving, I transcended to a realm of feeling I had only previously known from eating mushrooms.
Since then, I've been chasing the caffeine dragon. LOL

Cigarettes and heroin are for pikers. Coffee will own your soul forever. LOL

I like my coffee strong enough to jump out of the cup and slap me in the face - espresso for me.

Wimp - if coffee's strong enough, you don't even need a cup.

Regular, pingado style.

I don't have too much proficiency in English to explain what pingado is... Tongue


EDIT: I never tasted but people say that jacu bird coffee is the best of the best.

One time I got somebody to go get me a frozen cappuccino at a gas station.  I jokingly told him to put extra caffeine in it.  He did.  I can honestly say I will never have a shot of Roster Booster in my coffee ever again.

No coffee for me. I'll drink any kind of tea under the sun, though.

I think I prefer Arabian coffee. Strong and quite spicy.

Also really fond of hot chocolate with roasted grind coffee beans. Yummy yum.

Regular black coffee for me, and I particularly enjoy Italian roasts. Sometimes I'll add an extra shot of espresso too Smile

I did make the unfortunate mistake of getting coffee at a gas station once. Awful idea.

strong coffee, espresso/macchiato or middle eastern variations of it, with a sip of milk. Sugar is unnecessary.

Instant stuff like Nescafe is okay if there's no other thing around.

Latte is an atrocity.

Coffee with the name you can feel fresh. My morning is started with the Cup of Coffee. When ever I feel tired it makes me fresh and relax. I like hard coffee in evening, it reduces my stress of whole day.

I usually drink it with cream and sugar but often use Baileys or something similar also.

Whenever I order a coffee I ask for a coffee.
If I am asked which type, I ask again for coffee.
I have not needed to say it slower or more clearly, because the person serving me is not an idiot.

I have never had Starbucks coffee. I am not an idiot either.

I will drink a latte, espresso, or Cuban when it's available, those are great too.  But on a day-to-day basis, I like it simple.


This pretty much sums it up for me.

Coffee is usually rather good over here, so I prefer drinking it black. Dark roast, preferably.

When eating out a double espresso is always a treat.

Coffee black and strong with no additives or flavorings to adulterate the high levels of caffeine.

How does it go...
I take my coffee as I do my women: brown and hairy.

Love it! My wife and I drink two double Greek coffees a day, and we make it much better than most restaurants and cafes – it has to be strong and μέτριος. I voted for espresso, and there are a few places here in Rhodes city that serve really excellent (and not too expensive) espresso (and cappuccino if you prefer that).

Black can upset my stomach a bit, especially more acidic coffees, so I still need cream.  Gave up on sugar, though, unless the coffee wherever I'm at is truly dire (e.g., various government facilities).

Regular coffee, with hot water only
