  1. I drink black coffee with no sugar or milk, cream, etc when I fast during intermittent fasting. I prefer adding a little cream, no sugar. Some say that isnt a “true” fast, but I listen to Dr Jason Fung who says its ok to when fasting, just not a lot if it.
    I love the aroma if brewed coffee and prefer that to the taste. And when I do make it to drink by itself, I make it a bit weaker. It makes the coffee less bitter

  2. I used to do it for health until my tastebuds grew fond of the different things you can taste in coffee when it’s not corrupted by any other ingredient.
    The only exceptions I’ve made are when I make my lattes, capuccinos, and the occasional matcha fusions.
    Vietnamese coffee requires a good load of condensed milk over two espresso shots or a cup of brewed coffee, and that’s the closest I got to mixing sugar in my cup for the last decade.

  3. I used to be a double double guy. 2 sugar and 2 cream. It used to give me indigestion that I used to call “coffee gut rot”. If I drank 2 within an hour of each other I would feel gross. So I went to a regular coffee. 1 cream and 1 sugar. Less coffee guy rot, but not quite getting the enjoyment that I thought was possible.
    So then I started a diet. Low fat diet in fact. I did this for health reasons. Tasted my first black coffee and at first found it bitter. Got through it. Then got through the next thousand plus cups. I can now drink coffee as if it were water with no GI distress. I can drink 2–5 cups a day, and my cup is a big Yeti travel mug. I can taste every bean in that brew. I have also figured out which coffee houses actually serve good coffee. I drink it hot no matter the outside weather.
    Personally I think people add things to coffee to make it palatable, but there is a big flavour punch when you drink it black.

  4. I live in Miami where Cuban coffee is strong espresso with tons of sugar known as a colada. I love it and make it at home or walk 3 blocks to 8th Street where I can get awesome coffee every 40 meters. I also enjoy a double shot or even a quad espresso without sugar for the flavor. Technically, sugar changes the chemistry of coffee and renders it flavorless— it then becomes a flavor-aroma issue and not strictly taste.

  5. I prefer the flavored creamers but occasionally drink it black too, so I think it is how we first started and at what age we started to use it regularly.

  6. It is called the process of acquiring taste.
    I believe that things like coffee, tea, beer, wine, etc., are always a challenge for the palate, when taken for the very first time. With things like music and paintings, it might be that an individual finds immediate affinity but with the palate, such things are at first a challenge.
    Also the context must be considered, for example, a person that tends to eat things with high sugar content, might have difficulties at first with something low on sugar.
    Then there is the difference in mentalities. Some individuals tend to be very keen on investigating the palate, and they pay fine attention to what they taste. That individual will likely have greater interest for tasting coffee without sugar, wishing to understand the coffee qualities and profiles.

  7. Why do many people like drinking sugarless black coffee? Is it because of the taste or the health benefits of it?
    Good coffee doesn’t need sugar.
    Whether espresso or long black (Americano), a quality coffee does not need milk or sugar.

  8. I drink coffee black because, I like really good coffee.
    I hate non-dairy creamers they are just awful. I don’t use sugar. So, I have to have it black.

  9. I decided to stop putting sugar into coffee well into adulthood, when I was 36. The reason is two-fold:
    Health : I read somewhere that ingesting caffeine and sugar at the same time might be a very bad idea (can’t find links to any sources or studies right now). The main idea is that as a stimulant, caffeine makes your body cells temporarily insulin-resistant, so that they go from fat- storing mode into a fat- burning mode, in a sort of “fight-or-flight” response. When you ingest extra sugar in this state, you are both telling your body to secret more insulin (to lower the raised blood sugar) but also to be less responsive to the effects of insulin. The result is that you need to secrete more insulin than usual to achieve the same blood sugar-lowering effect. In short, you get what looks like a small-scale episode of diabetes/hyperinsulineamia.
    Taste : When you sweeten coffee, you are masking its flavour. You aren’t tasting coffee really, you are tasting sugar. What is the point of drinking coffee then? I decided I wanted to get to know what coffee itself really tastes like, and —hopefully— get to enjoy it.
    You get used to it. And if you don’t, I don’t really think there is a point in drinking coffee at all (see the two points above); drink something else!

  10. I love the subtle natural sweetness of coffee without sugar and because I enjoy the flavors in a cup made from high quality beans. The likelihood is that you are turned off by the high acid levels in some coffees which some people mask with sugar and/or cream. If you grind and make coffee at home, try a better bean known to be less acidic (at the top of the heap is Jamaican Blue Mountain but it is pricey). You might also try a cold brewed coffee which has less acid due to how it’s made, either making it at home or buying it at the store. I heat my cold brew up and drink it like a regular cup of pour over.

  11. I hate black coffee with sugar. It’s like drinking syrup.
    When I drink coffee, I want to taste coffee – with nothing added.

  12. Both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee help in prevention of diabetes. Having black coffee without sugar keeps your mind and body young. Black coffee also helps in preventing Parkinson’s disease by boosting the dopamine levels in the body. Cancer has become one of the biggest killers in today’s world. Do Not Load Your Coffee With Sugar Although coffee is healthy in itself, you can easily turn it into something harmful. The best way to do that is to put a whole bunch of sugar in it. Added sugar is arguably one of the worst ingredients in the modern diet.

  13. Coffee does have a strong flavour, and it can be unpalatable for people who haven’t “acquired” the taste for it. But anybody can power through and really focus on the particular notes in each cup, and find the differences bean to bean and roast to roast.

  14. I drink my coffee black without sugar. A while ago I accidentally drank some coffee with sugar.
    How can you bear to drink your coffee with that weird chemical taste in it? It’s vile.

  15. I drink my coffee black and no sugar because I like the taste of coffee. If anything is added to the coffee (milk, cream, sugar, flavoring) it overwhelms the subtle tastes of the coffee itself and all that I can taste is the additive.
    I drink my tea without sugar, milk, lemon or any other addition for the same reason. Which causes friction in my home because my wife loves sweet tea that has so much sugar dissolved in it during brewing that you could make rock candy from her “tea”.
    It’s just a matter of personal preference and taste. I tend to drink my whiskey neat (yes I know, a splash of water “opens it up”), and unless my steak or BBQ comes pre-sauced, I will rarely add any of my own (unless the dish is dry and tasteless on its own). I like tasting the food or drink on its own and seeing what subtle nuance of flavors are present in the food/beverage when it is unaltered.
    With that said, I also enjoy Cafe Cubano (Cuban Coffee). Which if you have ever had it, it is a VERY sweet dark brew and is… well it is something wonderful and unique to itself. I wouldn’t EVER turn down a Cubano if offered, especially if someone is asking me to “come share a colada” which is both an offer for refreshment, but more importantly an offer to socialize and built rapport within the context of Cuban culture.
    So I am not a purist, I don’t consider myself to be a snob. Context of the food or drink is important, but if it is up to me, I typically enjoy things undiluted.

  16. Well, I’m diabetic so sugar in coffee is something of an off limits thing for me. Instead I use the artificial stuff and even then it’s very little. I do prefer black coffee in all it’s bitter glory.

  17. Counterquestion: Have you ever tried coffee? I mean, real coffee? High quality beans, roasted carefully and freshly, and ground immediately with a good grinder?
