Default Morning Coffee

For those of you that do drink coffee, I have some questions, just for shiggles.
1) How do you take it? (Black, cream, sugar, etc.)
2) How to you brew it? (Method and anything extra, like eggshells, salt)
3) What brands do you like?
4) Pre-Ground or whole bean?
5) If you buy coffee from somewhere, where to you prefer? (Dunkin', Starbucks, Local)

My answers:
1) Half and half, just till I think it's enough.
2) I prefer French press, but the Keurig is nice in a hurry
3) I'm not picky and use Sam's club brand mostly, Dunkin' has good coffee, and I like to occasionally throw down for some Higher Ground out of Birmingham, AL.
4) Whole bean for the press, and Keurig is all pre-ground in those little cups.
5) Chloe's Cup is a great local place for me, but I don't mind getting Starbucks with their blonde roast now.

5) If you buy coffee from somewhere, where to you prefer? Gas stations, I won't spend $3 on a cup of coffee.
I like strong black coffee and I don't stress quality very much. I've drank thick cowboy coffee a lot and enjoyed it very much.

It's some of the best coffee we've ever had, anywhere in the world. Crazily good beans from many plantations, awesomely fresh (roasted and ground), and they also have highly skilled baristas for when we want a proper espresso sometimes (Aeropress is great, but nothing beats a cafe coffee done right).

Yeah, I guess we're coffee snobs. But it's partly because of sheer luck: how conveniently located that particular cafe is.

I like my coffe like I take men... cheap, nasty and white :]

Actually I do like coffe but I am capable of enjoying all sorts from cheaper instants to nice stuff. I do have a caffeteir (spelling?) at home, as well as a half decent instant. Prob I find with drinking better coffee often is it will make shitter coffee taste even shitter lol

My fav coffee prob, and the one that got me into drinking coffee, was the coffee they serve in Vietnam. They use a metal pot thingy like and mix a little cold water with the coffee to make a paste (I think thats what they did).Then the hot water and served over ice and with condensed milk. 'Cafeh su dah' was roughly how you ordered one. It was nice black too.
