    Black. French pressed as the most affordable bang for your buck.

    I also like it with the cream warmed by the machine if the coffee sucks.

    Ah,nice. I was putting heavy cream in mine, but when I choose too many heavy creams and butter I feel gross.

    Yeah, ideally the people pour about 1 Tbsp per 4-6oz for me, and that does the trick. How much do you usually use?

    Usually black. Sometimes coconut oil, sometimes sugar. It just depends on what kind of mood I'm in.

    Nice. I try to steer away from sugar because for some reason, too much sugar makes my heart pound.

    If you don't mind the inconvenience, DIY toddy is quite cheap. And it's great because you can whip up a week or two's worth at a time. Just add hot water.

    The downside is that cold brewing coffee takes about 13 hours from start to finish, fortunately, it requires no monitoring, and you wind up with coffee that's less acidic and suitable for consumption instantly once it's brewed.

    OMG +1 on the cold brew method. It'll really warm up (or ice up?) your taste buds to black coffee.

    I only recently started drinking coffee (made it through most of grad school before caving in, believe it or not). I don't have a coffee maker so I brew about 16 oz from a handful of beans ground and steeped in a fine mesh tea strainer for 3-4 minutes--I have no idea if this produces similar coffee to the traditional kind, but it seems to work. I add about 2 oz of canned coconut milk, a drizzle of wildflower honey, and often a teaspoon of cocoa powder or a dash of cinnamon. Yum!
