  1. You will get different tastes and calorie values using the different methods you described.
    Unless a person is making a very milky coffee or drinks numerous coffees a day, the calories from using whole milk in coffee are not a very significant part of the daily calorie intake. It’s probably better to use whatever tastes good to you.
    I hate the taste of full-fat milk so I use skim milk, which has less than 0.2 percent fat. When only full-cream milk is available I use that and put less in, but I don’t like the taste as much.

  2. This answer pertains to coffee with dairy added, no sugar.
    Why do so many people use low fat milk in their coffee?
    Texture and flavor. We add dairy to our coffee to give a velvety texture and to slightly mellow the flavor.
    Isn’t it just as good to use cream or half and half but simply put very little in?
    No it isn’t.
    I add about 2-ounces of half & half to my 20-ounces of coffee. I add it for texture and flavor.
    Here is the calorie breakdown for 2-ounces (2 Tablespoons) of the three items you listed:
    Low-fat milk – about 26 calories
    Half & half – 40 calories
    Heavy Cream – 102 calories
    For the calorie conscious, they will probably opt for the low-fat milk.
    Using 1-ounce half & half (20 calories) or cream (51 calories) would not be the same as the texture would be different for each, plus the flavor would be different from low-fat due to the higher fat content.
    To get to the same calorie count as low-fat milk, you would only be able to use 0.25-ounce of cream. While adding calories, it would be pretty much undetectable.
    Low-fat is the way to go for those who are counting calories and want dairy in their coffee.
