I am a big coffee drinker and have been experimenting with Primal inspired concoctions. My latest is:
- French Market coffee with chicory (16oz)
- 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1/2 packet Knox gelatin
- half & half or whole milk (or substitute coconut milk)
- 1 dropper of Sweet Drops liquid stevia
Lots of nutrients and it tastes great.
Some of you may die, but that is a risk I'm willing to take.

Black coffee is seriously nasty stuff, doesn't matter how good quality it is(and believe me, I know a good quality coffee, been liberally drinking it since I was 6), and depletes glycogen stores, leading to a stress circle. I drank coffee black for months, against my grandpa's better advice, and it always without fail gave me low blood sugar jitters. Of course, this was also when I was VLC. If you drink it black, at least eat something with it. Otherwise, always cream and sugar.
Hehe, had two 6 shots today from my mocha pot. Its not "really" a six shot though since its only an approximation of espresso, not the real thing. It probably actually ends up being the equivalent of 2-4 cups of coffee per six shot by my estimation though. All I did was add a dash of cinnamon each time. Oh, and during a 24hr fast that I'll be breaking in an hour or two. I can't say I always drink it black, but I do like it that way as well as other ways. I just love coffee in general. I've even added ground coffee to my BBQ spice rub to put on pork.
It can be useful to drink it black if fasting is your fetish, but not for me. I love the color, flavor, and smoothness of a nice creamy coffee.
Get high quality single-origin beans, grind them fresh each morning, and drink it black. You can get a ceramic pour-over cone for $25 (probably less if you look around). Brew your coffee at the right temperature so you don't burn it. Black coffee can taste awesome if made right.
