    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
    - cinnamon

    Lots of nutrients and it tastes great.

    I do nearly the same as you.

    16 oz home roasted 60% Bolivian 40% Colombian
    1 tsp Cocoa powder
    2TBS gelatin
    2TBS unsalted butter (pre-warmed)
    2TBS MCT Oil
    1/4 tsp vanilla
    1/8 tsp cinnamon
    1/8 tsp sea salt
    2 Eggs (pre-warmed)

    May be a little too addictive!
    Some of you may die, but that is a risk I'm willing to take.

    Seriously. Good coffee made the right way tastes perfect on its own.
    I could not agree more. Just suck it up and eventually you will taste the delicious coffeeness without having to dull it down with other flavours. Its just a habit like anything else.

    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.

    This. Grinders don't have to cost much, and neither does a good way of brewing your coffee. Buy good quality beans, and find a variety that you like. Having to disguise your coffee with loads of fat and sugar is a prime indicator that your coffee isn't of good quality.

    I drink fair-trade coffee from a Guatemala area called Huehuetenango. You can read a review here, for what it's worth:

    I blend mine with eggs and some stevia, or I drink it black.
