Black without sugar or milk is preferred for me.

We've done all of these already :rolleyes:

I like it with lots of milk (from the fridge is fine). I also like it made espresso style, but with extra water, known as an espresso luongo. I put lots of milk in that, too. Rarely, I will substitute with soy or nut beverage instead of milk and, occasionally, a tip of the spoon of honey. I always use the honey when I have run out of milk, as I am not very fond of it black, although I can tolerate it black, if I must (when all that is available is the edible oil creamer or the powdered version, neither of which I will consume).

I prefer medium roast. Light is typically too acidic and has too much caffeine; dark is too bitter and the flavourful volatile oils have been scorched.

Like Coronel Buendia I like my coffee amargo. I like the darkest possible roast. However, I cannot tolerate caffeine any more, so must limit myself to decaf or to substitutes, which taste nothing like coffee, but some of which are good in their own right as long as they are not compared with or considered as coffee. Soyfee and Teeccino are my favorite non-coffee hot black drinks.
