  1. You have to use artificial sweetener. There’s a lot of kinds. There’s Stevia, sweetnlow, equal, splenda, and the generic versions of these. My favorite is sucralose, Splenda, and it comes in yellow packets. Blue (aspartame and acesulfame K) is OK, and pink (saccharin) is the worst and most unhealthy. I don’t know why anyone would use pink when blue and yellow are around. Stevia comes in green packets, but it’s harder to find.
    But these actually have a few calories in them, they mix them with dextrose, because otherwise the powders needed is just too small. Anything under 5 calories gets to be labeled as zero. And real sugar won’t have that much more calories in it if you only use a little. It …

  2. You can effectively “sweeten” black coffee by drinking only fresh-roasted (less than 2–3 weeks post-roast) whole-bean coffee, ground per brew. This is not absolute, but you will get more of the inherently good flavors extracted from the coffee during the freshness window, which balance out the more bitter flavor components lurking in the roasted beans. The less fresh the coffee, the more pronounced the bitter components will be, and the less “alive” the flavor of the oils become over time.
    This may not be the additive approach you were hoping for, but this is the way in which I minimize calories and doctoring in order to enjoy the multitude of coffee varietals and blends, and thus get “closer to the bean”. Using better grinding (burr grinder) and brewing (french press) methods will also get more of the good flavors out of your coffee beans.
