What sort of coffee do you guys drink?

I don't have much knowledge on the subject, but there's lots of ground coffee in my home, including a 3 lb box of Colombian brought by my dad from overseas. Soluble coffee is actually my favorite as it's much easier to prepare, but since I'm out of it I'll just stick to the good old-fashioned grounds.

Please don't post here if you don't drink coffee.

ESPRESSO! Sometimes two or three shots between 0400 and noon. I stop when my hair starts vibrating.

Otherwise, my coffee has to be like a Filipina in love - warm, dark, strong, and sweet!

Will I have to turn in my Man-card if I admit I prefer it with milk (no sugar)? I can drink it straight if needs be, but still. Also, usually in a tall glass rather than a cup.

I drink this:

It's instant coffee, quite strong, and costs just £1.79 for a 200g jar. You can make perhaps 100 cups of coffee from this, whereas a single cup of coffee at Starbucks costs about £3. If I do have to buy a cup of coffee, the stuff at McDonald's isn't bad, and it's a lot cheaper than at Starbucks, Costa, etc.

I, too, am an espresso addict.

Whenever I am in downtown Aarhus, I try to get two double espressos at Great Coffee (yes, that's the name of the coffee shop - exactly what it says on the tin)

This is the proprietor, Søren Stiller:

Not only is he the undisputed best Barista in Denmark, he also finished 5th at the World Barista Championship in 2010, and 6th in 2008.

It should come as no surprise, then, that he makes daaaaaaaaaaaamn good coffee.

^ Søren Stiller looks as if he could do with a couple of shots of espresso himself in that first picture!

Campos or Vittoria coffee (ground).
I haven't found an instant coffee I like.
I also have one of those pod machines but that coffee seems to give no 'kick' at all.
I now drink it black, no sugar, since I need to cut down on dairy.

I probably need to buy a different coffee brand, mine doesn't fully wake me up. The cold is more powerful than my coffee, I can fall asleep after my coffee.

I love coffee, but I don't drink two pots a day like I used to. Now it's more like two cups. (Two big 12-ounce cups, but that's still quite a bit less than I used to drink.) I got one of those k-cup brewers for Christmas and I love it. They do one cup at a time and seem to have been designed by and for lazy people. Just put the little cup in the top, pour a cupful of water in the top, and press a single button. Pretty sweet.

Fresh ground dark roast, very strong, with unsweetened soy milk. Absolutely no sugar. I also use the keurig cups sometimes.

I don't discriminate. If it's brewed and has caffeine I'll drink it. I'll drink it straight black, with cream, milk, sugar, flavors, etc. The taste doesn't interest me, I'm only in it for the caffeine.

Anything that isn't instant. I like it with chocolate soy milk, or a bit of sugar, or black.
