Gotta get started with some light-roast beans, aka "breakfast roast". A lot of people think that dark-roast is "strong" coffee, but it's not, it's just bitter because it's burnt. Dark-roast beans are literally burned black and most of the caffeine has been burnt the hell out of them. Coffee beans are similar to beef in that the more cooked it is, the shittier product they can get away with selling to you because you can't tell the difference when shit's overcooked. Dark-roast is bitter, has less caffeine and uses the lowest quality beans the seller is willing to obtain, which is usually the cheapest garbage they know they can get by you. There's a reason why Starbucks tastes like the smell of burnt assholes... because it's what's cheap.

Fine-grind those beans into borderline powder and use them for espresso. The more coarse the grind, the less coffee you actually extract by volume. Using pressure to force hot water through the grounds also makes extraction more efficient, not to mention it brews your coffee way faster. Espresso is a far more versatile starting point than regular drip coffee. Hell, just add water to your espresso like a heathen if you prefer it that way.

I honestly just prefer to brew tons of espresso at a time to keep in an airtight bottle in the fridge so I can mix a scrub latte on the fly and microwave it or have cold espresso ready to mix with some ice cream without making a gross, melty mess. Hint-hint, iced coffee lovers. I only add a touch of sweetener to the lattes since it's already got so much milk in it. Better yet, melt some ganache into the mug instead for an occasional treat. If you store your espresso properly, you honestly won't taste the difference from just-brewed. You can even get that thin layer of foam on top just by shaking the bottle before pouring your dose of espresso, but the foam will be a nice combination of milk and coffee in stead of just milk foam.

Usually just black, sometimes with a splash of milk.

If I want to spoil myself a little, I make some Vietnamese coffee - with robusta beans in those cute little drippers they have ontop of sweetened condensed milk. I obviously stole the photo to showcase the whole thing.

I have a little 32oz French Press and use whole beans. Sometimes I add milk foam, because I like foam. The heretical part: I like flavored beans, as long as they're not pre-ground. They taste and smell delicious. I had Irish coffee flavored beans earlier and my hands still smell like rum (in a good way).

Most of the time, I take it straight black with no shit in it. On days I'm feeling fancy, I'll take a shot of cream.

One of the reasons I fucking hate Starbucks is that their normal black coffee tastes like monkeys pissed in it. And I think its a Seattle thing too because I tried a generic "Seattle Blend" K cup from another brand that was equally terrible.

I don't want sugar, whipped cream, a goddamn cherry and 17 different kinds of milk in my coffee. I just want the damn coffee!

Darkest roast I can find. I make it strong. One friend said my coffee is "like mud", another called it a "heart attack in a cup." I French press it after letting it steep for 2 minutes. Little bit of half and half or every once in a while some heavy cream because acid reflux is a motherfucker.

I have mine with a bit of milk and a bit of sugar. Nothing too dark, but not too light either. I'm not picky and will try about any coffee I get my hands on.

I like my coffee dark roast and made in a french press, although I would like to try making it in a moka pot. If I was to add stuff to coffee, it would be alcohol or breadcheese.

As long as it's good quality coffee I'll drink it from any brewing method. Turkish Style is actually really good with a teaspoon on sugar.
