    I just started drinking coffee last month and still need a flavor added. I really like hazelnut flavored coconut milk creamer or coconut milk with a smidge of Stevia. I do indulge in Starbucks/coffee shops on occasion and that is where this new craving started. I try to support the local stores instead of Starbucks though. The only good thing about this new behavior of mine.

      Sometimes black. Usually with a tablespoon of half & half (if I brought heavy cream to work it would get thrown out, but the half & half tubs are free and always in the fridge). Sometimes with Splenda, but I'm getting more and more grossed out by the taste lately. =P

      If I'm hungry but don't feel like eating, I have it with a tablespoon or so of coconut oil.

            I was a HWC junkie, but have switched over to Coconut Oil this week. Jury is still out, but I could get used to it! My one major peeve is getting the oil all over the top of my travel mug when I take it to work- bleah.

                Regular coffee: at least 1 T of heavy cream per 8 oz
                Espresso: hot water for an Americano

                  A crap ton of heavy cream, and a little NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia.

                    I might have to try coconut milk in mine. I was using heavy cream, then recently switched to coconut oil, which really does nothing for the taste. I would think coconut milk would give it a nice flavor.

                      heavy whipping cream and cinnamon. i either use half a packet of sun crystals or none at all. sometimes use vanilla extract. just depends on how i feel. i'm trying to ween slowly off of the sweetner. i was also a splenda junkie drinking three cups each with one whole packet in it and then having tea with more splenda later on in the afternoon. i want to try the pure stevia powder but read it tastes kinda icky in coffee?
                      i will maintain the truth
                      i knew naturally as a child
                      i won't forfeit my creativity
                      to a world that's all laid out for me
                      i'll look at everything around me
                      and i will vow to bear in mind
                      that all of this was just someone's idea
                      it could just as well be mine - ani difranco

                        I did this morning for the first time. The first sip was a little weird, but my tastebuds adjusted and I had three cups with healthy rich gulps of coconut milk in them. *hooked*

                          is that canned coconut milk or the type sold in coolers near the dairy products? (i've never had either but interested in trying)

                            Squirty whipped cream (UHT cream), whatever you want to call it. Normally in the morning, then black before workout

                              Before going primal, I always used to put half and half and spenda in my coffee - 1.5 packets because I liked it sweet. I first cut back to 1 packet of splenda. Then I tried stevia for about a week. finally decided I would never "get used to" the bitter metallic taste. No point in ruining a perfectly good cup of coffee! My partner induced me to try using rapidura ( a less processed form of sugar with a bit of molasses taste to it) which also ruined the taste of the coffee. Then I just decided I was going to use 1 tsp of regular ole white sugar to take the edge off the natural bitterness of the very dark roast coffee that I prefer. It's not really sweet (per my sweet tooth), but allows for a still enjoyable cup of coffee. Guess that tsp of sugar counts towards my 20%. I now use heavy cream instead of half and half.

                                Alexa, I can't speak for everyone but I am using canned organic Thai coconut milk. It took me awhile to acquire a taste for the coconut products but now I am going through them maybe a little too fast.
