  1. Cinnamon
    If you’re a typical milk and sugar coffee drinker, cinnamon, apart from cutting the calories and adding a punch-y sweetness to your drink, will also help boost your immune system and lower blood sugar levels.
    Just like cinnamon, cardamom is another spice that the average coffee drinker will appreciate. It adds a bit more spiciness than cinnamon but the sweet undertones will make you forget that you ever needed sugar to begin with.
    Adding salt to your coffee has been known to decrease the bitterness, so if you’re stuck drinking that sour break room coffee, try adding salt and then flavoring as you normally would. You only need a pinch.
    It may not be the ideal ingredient to add to your first cup in the morning, but spiking your coffee is a pretty popular trick.
    It is said that drinking coffee with butter gives your body fast quick energy that it will in turn use and burn. And once your body’s in fat burning mode, it’ll take on all that stored fat as well. Of course, the type of butter you use matters too, so if you’re going to try this one, grass-fed, antioxidant rich butter is the way to go.
    Lemon or lime peel
    Adding a lemon or lime peel has been known to neutralize the bitterness of coffee and enhance it’s sweeter nodes. Of course, it will also add a citrus kick to your drink so, if you’re going to add milk or sugar afterward, taste it first.
    Adding an egg to your coffee may sound like some kind of body builder’s trick to up their protein intake, but it’s actually a Scandinavian thing. A raw egg is mixed with coffee grounds and little bit of water to create this thick sooty mixture. The mixture is then poured into a pot with more water and boiled for about three minutes. The coffee is then poured through a strainer to catch all the grounds and egg particles. What’s left is a surprisingly mild, amber-toned coffee, that is supposedly less bitter and full of nutrients.
    Ice cream
    A scoop of ice cream in your coffee will of course add calories, but if you’re just looking to enhance the taste than this sounds incredible. Coffee and ice cream is not new, of course, the German drink, Eiskaffee, is exactly that — a huge scoop of vanilla with hot coffee poured on top.
    Coconut milk
    Adding coconut milk will thicken up the drink, which can leave you feeling way more satisfied and not starving half an hour later.
    Condensed milk
    It is much thicker, creamier, and sweeter than milk which is why adding a tablespoon, or so, will give your coffee a very tasty makeover.
    Mix a cup of coke into you coffee. The soda will add a lot of extra sweetness to your drink, so start out with a dark or medium roast coffee in order to ensure the flavor isn’t overly diluted.

  2. I don’t put anything in my coffee which in America is your super dark, bitter and strong “black coffee”. My parents from Korea call it the “rat poison coffee” but I like it because black coffee doesn’t leave a funny milky or sweet taste in your mouth and I don’t know, I just like the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. It definitely is an acquired taste, though.

  3. I always put a little amount of milk in my coffee. After I eat cereal I use the amount that’s left over to drink when I take my daily routine of supplements and use some of that for my coffee. I put about a spoonful of sugar because I still can’t drink coffee straight. What I really like in my coffee is a spoonful of sweetened condensed milk. I’m a creature of habit. I drink and eat what tastes good to me.

  4. In my 12 ounces of coffee (French Roast), I add a scant teaspoon of sugar and about two tablespoons of half and half. I regularly drink three mugs every morning.

  5. What do I put in my coffee?
    If the size is an XL I ask for 3 creams 3 sugars. (Triple-Triple)
    If the size is below an XL I ask for 2 creams & 2 sugars. (Double-Double)
    At Home:
    One teaspoon of splenda and then the cream comes out of a carton so I put the amount of cream I find is a decent amount.
    Sometimes I also add cinnamon to my coffee (depends on mood) to get nice health benefits which cinnamon has.

  6. I want it just plain, black, most of the time. Sometimes I’ll throw a few cardamom pods in the grinder, that’s a taste that goes good with coffee. Or cinnamon.
    And sometimes I like flavored syrups. Just a touch, like a teaspoonful. Vanilla, hazelnut, chocolate. Fruit flavors like cherry, raspberry, etc. are interesting.
    And once in a while, when I order coffee in a nice restaurant, they’ll bring a little container of real cream. That’s how you know when you’re in a really good restaurant! If it’s real cream, I’ll use it, because I get it so seldom these days. Real cream does something wonderful for coffee. If you’re used to milk or artificial creamer, you don’t know what you’re missing! I know I could buy cream and keep it at home to put in my coffee but, like I say, I like it black most of the time.

  7. Some croissant…or a bagel….some choco mocha cookies….or a spicy sweet pastry..my kind of sides with a coffee…. But it’s upto each one to decide what to have with a cup of coffee….

  8. I am a big fan of black coffee, and usually dont like to add much to it.
    But I do experiment a lot with coffee. It is so versatile a drink that you can get very creative with it. Here are some things I love adding to coffee (apart from the usual milk & sugar):
    Cinnamon, cocoa powder, pumpkin spice mix, pure ground vanilla beans, saffron, cardamom, chocolate sauce, caramel, maple syrup (I’m a big fan of all choczero syrups, link in footnote), coconut water (I find this very hydrating, especially since coffee can be a little dehydrating), and last but not the least, turmeric (I however find this a little tricky, needs milk and sugar IMHO).
    Hope this sparks a few ideas on how to make your coffee more flavorful. Do let me know of you need more ideas or recipes.

  9. I don’t recommend this unless it is the weekend or on a vacation but try adding in a decent swiq of Bailey’s Irish Cream! Oh my gosh does it add to the flavor!
    And on top of that, can you think of a better way to start your day! Screw the Folgers Commercial…

    What do you put in your coffee?

    Eight O’Clock

  10. Vanilla almond milk creamer, and in the first cup of the morning I add 1 Tablespoon of MCT (multichain triglycerides) oil. The latter really helps provide mental energy all day.

  11. We usually add half and half and hazelnut flavored creamer. When that’s not available milk is a go to as well as evaporated milk works good to.

  12. 5 Things to Put in Your Coffee to Up the Ante
    If you love sugar in your coffee, this could be the one for you.
    Cocoa Powder.
    Vanilla Extract.

  13. Nothing other than grounds and water. The only other favor I would consider adding is cinnamon. Most of the time I prefer to have the taste of pure coffee. If you add a lot of sugar, cream, and other flavorings, you can make any cheap coffee taste pretty good. For the same reason, I prefer vanilla ice cream over chocolate.

  14. I put cinnamon in with my grounds before I brew the pot. I add a little vanilla, heavy whipping cream, salted butter, and coconut oil in my brewed coffee. It’s delicious and keeps hunger pangs away.


  15. Reply
  16. I like my coffee black most of the time, yet now and then I will add just a little cinnamon’s. It does sharpens the taste, so its specially good on sleepy morning.

  17. Add nothing to a short black – just the shot of espresso
    Add boiling water to a long black (actually you add coffee to the water)
    Add stretched hot Milk and foam to any of the milk based espresso drinks – Cappuccino / Latte / Flat White / Piccolo
    Add chocolate to a Mocca
    You can add an extra espresso shot to any of these
    That’s it for adding any stuff to coffee
    DO NOT ADD SUGAR – a properly made espresso does not need sugar.
    A badly made coffee can be a bit bitter – people put sugar into a shit coffee to compensate. Or worse still, they automatically put sugar in assuming it is going to be a shit coffee
    As for flavours – it is not a coffee any more. You are adding coffee to a flavoured drink


  18. While I normally take mine black, on occasion I like mixing it with half&half or a vanilla almond creamer by Silk that is made specifically for coffee. They also just came out with a maple syrup flavor, but I think that is just seasonal.

  19. You can add a lot of different flavours to your coffee, but what is the best, depends on your taste.
    One option is raw egg with shell. It really makes the coffee shooth and mild. If you have the chance, you should try it out. Here’s the recipe:


  20. Water and coffee. That’s all.
    A well-prepared coffee drink, made with quality materials (both coffee and water) is tasty, flavourful and lovable on its own. Nothing else needed.
    If I need something special, I am a fan of
    espresso con arancione (espresso with freshly squeezed [blood] orange juice 1/2 orange to 1 espresso),
    espresso freddo (espressos prepared prior the day of the consumption with a very small amount of raw cane sugar [syrup] stored in the fridge overnight),
    about a dozen espressos with some passionfruit and macadam syrup, rice milk and rice cream (1:1), stirred in a syphon with one regular soda (CO2) cartridge.
    Thanks for a2a .

  21. Depends on the roast.
    If it is dark roast, I like a little cream and a small amount of sugar. If it’s medium roast, plain milk and no sugar. If light roast, then just black, with a little sugar IF it’s acidic (many light roasts are).

  22. Nothing.
    My first cup of coffee decades ago was milk and sugar. Then I lost the sugar. When i got into the coffee business and learned about coffee cupping (tasting) i lost the milk.

  23. With one exception, I put nothing in my coffee. No sugar, no cream, no flavorings. I do however drink coffee with chicory at home, a habit left over after living in New Orleans years ago.
