  1. Do you have access to a scale? If so weigh how much sugar and cream you put in and extrapolate for your measurements from the nutritional information on the back. Sugar is around 400 kcal per 100 gr and as for cream it would depend on what kind of cream it is.

  2. Calculate the calories separately, and then add them up.
    200ml coffee = ~2 calories
    10ml cream = ~20 calories
    10g sugar = 40 calories
    -> 62 calories.

  3. Just add up the calories of all of the ingredients that you put in.
    Coffee
    0 Calories
    Milk
    Skimmed (0% fat): ~38 kcal/100ml
    Semi-skimmed: (1.5–2% fat): ~49 kcal/100ml
    Whole (3.25% fat): ~60 kcal/100ml
    Cream
    Assuming 15% fat: ~161 kcal/100ml
    Sugar
    4 kcal/g . A standard sugar cube/sachet has about 4g.
    So assuming, for example, that you take a coffee with 50 ml cream and 2 sugar cubes:
    Total calories = 0 (coffee) + 0.5*161 (cream) + 2*4*4 (sugar) = 80.5 + 32 = 112.5 calories
    There are 112.5 calories in this example of latte. You can use the numbers to calculate any combination of coffee/milk/cream/sugar.

  4. This is pretty simple, but you can also use an app like MyFitnessPal to help you calculate.
    Plain black coffee is usually 3–4 calories per cup (as mentioned in another answer).
    Sugar can be measured by tsp, tablespoon, etc. Check the nutrition facts on the container for serving sizes and calorie count.
    Creamers can also be measured by tsp, tablespoon, etc. Check the nutrition facts on the container for serving sizes and calorie count.
    Add the sum of those three things to get a very good estimate of the calories you’re bringing in.

  5. Black coffee has about 3 calories per cup.
    Heavy cream has roughly 50 calories per table spoon, or as indicated on the back.
    Sugar has about 16 calories per tea spoon (4g).

  6. A cup of black coffee has 2 calories. Go on line and get a calorie counter. Look up how many calories in the amount of cream and sugar you use. Add this to the 2 calories.
